“Obviously she hopes this doesn’t cause more drama for Ye, but he’s an artist and this is how he chooses to express himself and she can’t judge that,” the insider says of Fox’s thoughts on the track.
Just days after allegedly punching a fan, the musician, 44, rapped in a teaser, “God saved me from that crash/ just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”
The pointed lyric not only mentions Davidson’s name but references how West survived a nearly fatal car accident in 2002.
A source close to the couple says Fox, 31, “loves” the song because it mentions her, not by name but “implied” elsewhere.
West’s relationship with the “Uncut Gems” actress has heated up this month as the hip-hop star’s estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, continues to explore a romance with Davidson, 28.
Fox “loves” the diss track because it references her romance with West elsewhere, the insider told us.
West’s diss at Davidson marks the first time he has ever publicly addressed his feelings about the “Saturday Night Live” star courting his ex, with whom the Yeezy designer shares four children: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
Sources previously told Page Six that West has been parading his romance with Fox at hot spots in New York City and Los Angeles in an attempt to “get under Kim’s skin.”
“It’s a desperate play for attention. There’s no other explanation when he chooses … [Fox] to go public with,” one insider said.

West’s pointed lyric marks the first time he has publicly expressed his feelings on the “SNL” star, who is dating his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.
But it’s not working, according to other sources, who’ve told us that Kardashian, 41, is “unbothered” by West dating the self-proclaimed “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” “superfan.”
Kardashian is enjoying “feeling completely free” in her relationship with Davidson, an insider noted and has “fully moved on” from her marriage to West.
