Azealia Banks Alleges Actor Russell Crowe Violently Assaulted Her
US rapper Azealia Banks has accused actor Russell Crowe of violently evicting her from a private party he held at a Beverly Hills hotel in LA on Saturday night.
According to TMZ, Banks came along to the intimate function with fellow hip hop artist RZA who was one of the few guests invited.
The incident reportedly kicked off after Banks slammed the music being played in the suite and called Crowe and another guest “boring white men”.
It is alleged that Banks threatened the 52-year-old, saying, “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”.
It’s further alleged that Crowe took action after Banks picked up a glass following the threat and carried her out of the suite before hotel security escorted her from the premises.
However, in a series of now-deleted Facebook posts (as noted by Metro), Banks accused Crowe of choking her, calling her the n-word and spitting at her.
“To recap my night, I went to a party at Russell Crowe’s suite, at which he called me a n****r, choked me, threw me out and spat at me,” Banks’ posts read.
“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.”
Another post read, “Just feel so low and mishandled and alone and f*****g depressed right now. I wish I had someone to beat him up for me”.
TMZ have reported that at least four people present at the suite have given statements to police, in which Banks’ behaviour was described as “erratic”.
Today Banks posted this tweet on her Twitter page:
