Russell Crowe Physically Removed Azealia Banks From Hotel After Altercation
Putting crazy people Russell Crowe and Azealia Banks in the same room seems like an awful idea.
But that’s what happened Saturday night in Beverly Hills after the famously volatile actor invited his old friend RZA to his Beverly Hills Hotel room for a small listening party.
RZA is managing Banks now, and for some reason he took the mentally unbalanced artist as his plus one. It wasn’t long before Azealia started acting out by making fun of Crowe’s music selection and calling him and his other guests “boring white men.”
A woman told Banks to tone it. So Banks responded “You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino shit.”
Then Banks cocked her glass back like she was going to break it, prompting Crowe to grab her in a bear hug and remove her from the hotel room.
After the incident, Banks jumped on Facebook and accused Crowe of spitting on her and calling her the n-word.
“To recap my night, I went to a party at Russell Crowe’s suite, at which he called me a nigger, choked me, threw me out and spat at me,” she wrote. “Last night was one of the hardest nights of sleep I’ve had in a long time. The men in the room allowed it to happen. I feel terrible today.”
However, the other guests — including RZA — confirm that it was Banks, not Crowe, who was dropping n-bombs all over the place and was generally behaving like a lunatic.
While Banks has deleted that FB post, she has a new one which reads “I have receipts. Stay tuned.”
Such fuckery is the only way Banks is going to keep us tuning in in 2016.
