Russell Crowe Admits to Attacking Azealia Banks, but Refuses to Apologise
Russell Crowe has admitted to violently choking rapper Azealia Banks and throwing her out of his Beverly Suit last weekend, and he refuses to apologise for this.
Recall that Banks took to her Facebook yesterday to accuse actor of manhandling her, calling her a ‘n**a and spitting on her. Now, TMZ, reports that eyewitnesses at the scene said Banks had drawn a bottle and threatened to cut the actor’s guests with the shards. Upset by her behaviour, he bear-hugged her and threw her out.
Russell Crowe bounced rapper Azealia Banks out of his hotel suite when she turned into the “plus one” from hell and threatened to cut his guests and watch them bleed … according to multiple witnesses.
The bizarre incident went down Saturday night at Russell’s room at a Bev Hills hotel, where he’d invited about 10 people over to have dinner and listen to music. One of his guests was RZA, who brought Azealia along.
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.
However, the rapper demanded an apology from the A-lister, but he has refused to give her one. He insists that he did nothing wrong; especially because she threatened to cut his guests and watch them bleed.
TMZ adds that the case has been taken over by the police who have begun investigations into the natter.
This is the first time the rapper will be making headline since she was thrown out of Twitter over controversial and slur-ridden fights with celebrities on the platform.
