It appears Azealia Banks was involved in some sort of altercation with Russell Crowe that resulted in him allegedly kicking her out of his hotel room. It’s quite bizarre. Get the deets inside…
Now, it's being reported Azealia Banks trekked it to the Beverly Hill police department to file a battery report against Russell Crowe on Sunday afternoon. In the report, she claims Russell choked her, called her the n-word AND he allegedly spat on her. She demanded an apology from Russell, but he never offered it up. His rep recently spoke out to say Russell will NOT give her an apology because he did nothing wrong.
Well this is bizarre! But then again, almost anything can happen when it comes to rapper Azealia Banks.
Apparently, actor Russell Crowe invited about 10 friends to dinner and to listen to music at his Beverly Hills hotel on Saturday. Azealia was there with rapper RZA. We’re not exactly sure what set her off, other than another female guest telling her to fall back on her criticism of Russell's musical taste, but it’s being reported Azealia went into a rage where she threatened to stab folks in the throat on some Tarantino type ish. Sighs…
Her'se how the story goes:
According to eyewitness accounts the trouble started when Azealia laughed out loud at Russell's music selection, and then called him and at least one other guest, "boring white men." We're told a female guest jumped to Russell's defense and suggested Banks pipe down.
Instead, we're told she made an insane speech/threat to Crowe and the woman ..."You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino s***." Then for good measure, witnesses say she dropped a few n-bombs ... yet Crowe remained surprisingly calm.
We're told Azealia reached for her glass, cocked it back ... and that's when Russell had enough -- he grabbed her in a bear hug and carried her out of the suite. He then called hotel security guards who removed Azealia from the grounds.
Azealia posted a different version of events, claiming Crowe called her the n-word, choked her, threw her out and spit on her. We're told at least 4 of the guests/witnesses gave statements during the investigation, and all 4 used the word "erratic" to describe Azealia's behavior. For the record, we're told ... even RZA says she used the n-word, not Russell.
RZA hasn't said anything about the incident on his social media accounts and Azealia's Twitter account has been suspended. Nope, no Twitter rants from her this time. She hasn't posted anything on Instagram other than a few selfies over the last few days.
IF this is true maybe Banks should consider getting some help. She’s known to make headlines over erratic behavior. Maybe it's time for an intervention or something. Girl, get your life!
