Julia Fox ‘isn’t surprised’ her ‘unstable, abusive and unhinged’ father and brother were long arrested when police found drugs, ghost guns and bomb-making materials in his Manhattan apartment.
Both Thomas Fox, 62, and Christopher Fox, 30, were arrested in the Wednesday morning raid. But so far, only Christopher, who has two previous arrests sealed, has been charged.
Cops discovered a large quantity of illegal substances and items, including pills, fentanyl, pressure cookers, chloroform, heroin, propane, explosive materials and formaldehyde, in his Upper East Side apartment. They also seized 3D printers, which are used to make ghost guns.
A source has exclusively told DailyMail.com that the Uncut Gems star cut ties with his two family members years ago.
‘Julia and Christopher were raised by their unstable, abusive and unhinged father. She knew about her father’s and her brother’s 3D printing and their alleged drug use, but she has no direct knowledge about this because she has no contact with either of them,” the source said.
Her father is crazy and has caused her emotional trauma that she will have to deal with for the rest of her life. She knew that one day her life would catch up with him. She is glad that no one was hurt by her disgusting actions.

Julia has not spoken to any of her family members since her arrests, the source confirmed.
Julia and her brother, once close, have drifted apart for years after he “turned out like his father.”
‘When Julia was young, her father didn’t give a shit about her and her brother. She was forced into her care, and they lived on the streets and in the parks because of her actions,” the source said.
‘His brother became like him and she also cut him down. When she succeeded, her father and her brother tried to make things right with her to follow her, but she did not allow this to happen.’
The model and influencer, who has a one-year-old son, Valentino, recently divorced her ex-husband Peter Artimiev. His acrimonious separation from her has made headlines, with a 33-year-old man calling him a lazy, alcoholic father.
However, the couple have begun to repair their relationship for the sake of their son, and her father’s neglect was a deciding factor.
“She wanted her baby to have what she didn’t have, which was the love of a father who will be there for him,” the source said.
Investigators discovered 3D printers inside the apartment that they believe are used to manufacture the ghost guns, firearms without traceable serial numbers.
Unidentified pills, a pill press, fentanyl, pressure cookers, chloroform, heroin, propane, explosive materials, and formaldehyde were also allegedly seized.
Phantom weapons, bomb-making materials and evidence of narcotics manufacturing were discovered in the raid on the Upper East Side apartment on Wednesday.

Thomas and Christoper’s apartment on 84th Street on the Upper East Side was raided at 6 a.m. Wednesday after a lengthy investigation into their alleged crimes.
The cops found material that can be used to make dangerous weapons, such as machine guns, modified rapid-fire devices. Christopher also faces charges of criminal possession of a firearm and possession of drug paraphernalia.
An NYPD spokesman said officers had seized several pieces of ghost guns, as well as narcotic pill-pressing equipment.
“Team members also discovered materials that are typically used as components in explosives, including pressure cookers, and various chemicals, which can also be used to make narcotics.”
“At this time, the matter is believed to be contained, with no apparent link to terrorism,” the spokesman said.
“The NYPD will continue to relentlessly fight illegal weapons, both against the continued proliferation of traditionally manufactured firearms and the growing number of untraceable but fully functional illegal weapons known as ghost weapons.” .
In 2019, Julia, who became a household name for briefly dating Kanye West after her split from Kim Kardashian, spoke to High Snobiety in 2019 and said she doesn’t often talk to her father or her ‘recluse’ brother, whom described as being a ‘mad scientist’.
DailyMail.com contacted a representative for Julia who said she has “no comment” on the arrests.
