Talking about what led to their split, Fox said Artemiev was an absent husband and dad, labeling their relationship as toxic. Advising fans, the mother of one told other women to get out if they happen to find themselves in similar situations.

Julia gave birth to the only child of their union, Valentino Artemiev on the 17th of January 2021.

Though the actress confessed that she was glad to become a mother, she also heaped accusations on Peter, alleging that he intentionally put her in the family’s way but it is a blessing that she wouldn’t want to change.

Recently, Peter Artemiev was accused of abandoning his son with Julia. On the 21st of December 2022, the American actress took to her Instagram handle to ask, “Have you seen this deadbeat dad?”

Going on, Julia said she doesn’t want a situation where her son would feel that his dad abandoned him or loved alcohol and partying more than him.

“… This man left me with a 5-month-old and a dog and a home and ALL THE BILLS. It’s wrong!!! It’s not fair!!!” Fox said.

On his own part, Artemiev wasted no time in denying Julia’s allegations. Talking to PageSix, the Brooklyn-based pilot said he was dismayed to learn of the outright false statements made by Julia Fox, his co-parent, who is obviously struggling.

However, out of the respect he had for her privacy and in a bid to protect his child, Peter declined to make further comments about the issue.
