Who is Julia Fox’s brother?
“I grew up Uptown, mostly,” Julia told Highsnobiety in a 2019 interview.
“We moved around a lot. It was kind of unstable. We were homeless at one point. I actually have lived in almost every single neighborhood – Harlem, Chelsea, everywhere. I moved Downtown when I was 17 and I haven’t left.”
She previously described her 30-year-old brother as a “mad scientist” and told the publication he still resides in New York, but that he’s not really a part of her life.
“He builds 3D printers for fun,” Julia added.
Not much else is known about Christopher as he tends to keep away from his sister’s giant spotlight.
How many siblings does Julia Fox have?
Julia is one of three children in her Italian-American family. She has two brothers, including Christopher.
“My dad is American. He’s, like, a seventh generation New Yorker,” she told Highsnobiety. “He’s out of his mind. I pretty much grew up with him. Single dad. Poor guy.”
She continued: “My mom stayed in Italy. And I have two younger brothers.
“One is close in age to me, and the other one is 15. The 15-year-old lives in Italy with my mom, but the older one grew up with me in New York.”
Why was Christopher Fox arrested?
On March 8, 2023, it was revealed that Christopher Fox and his father, Thomas, were arrested in their Upper East Side home around 6am as a part of a more extensive ghost gun investigation, sources told The New York Post.
As per John Hopkins University: “Ghost guns are kits and privately made firearms that are untraceable by design, lacking serial numbers and other identifying markings.”
Investigators allegedly discovered unidentified pills, ghost guns, 3D printers, polymer material and more in the pair’s apartment.

“The NYPD’s Ghost Gun Team seized several ghost gun parts as well as equipment for pressing narcotics pills,” an NYPD spokesperson said.
“Team members also discovered materials typically used as components in explosives, including pressure cookers and various chemicals, which can also be used for manufacturing narcotics.”
While neither, Thomas nor Christopher have a prior criminal history, the latter is “facing charges including criminal possession of controlled substance, manufacture of a machine gun, manufacture of a rapid fire modified device, manufacture of a dangerous instrument, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a firearm and criminal possession of drug paraphilia,” according to ABC7.
Thomas has yet to be charged with anything but was held by police.
