Azealia Banks Cuts Off RZA For Not Defending Her Russell Crowe Fight
We’ve been reporting all week about the bizarre tale of Azealia Banks and actor Russell Crowe. Apparently, the rapper was tossed out of Crowe’s Beverly Hills hotel room after RZA brought her as his plus one. The random azz incident occurred Saturday when the actor invited 10 guests over his to suite to enjoy dinner and music.
Wu Tang rapper RZA invited his friend Azealia Banks to the low-key party but eyewitnesses claim all hell broke loose the moment she entered the room. Friends of Crowe claim Azealia laughed out loud at Russell’s music selection, and then called him and at least one other guest, “boring white men.”
Banks and Crowe have both come up with different stories about the series of events that occurred but both agree there was a physical attack following the argument. RZA even sided with Crowe and claims Banks used the “n-word” during the skirmish.
According to TMZ, Banks has since cut off RZA for refusing to defend her.
Sources close to Banks tell TMZ … she’d been negotiating a deal to sign with RZA’s record label for the past 3 weeks. We’re told RZA’s rep called her this week about closing the deal, and she made it clear … the deal is OFF.
RZA — who invited Azealia to the party — doesn’t seem to be losing any sleep over it. His camp insists she’s “full of it” when it comes to the events in Crowe’s suite, and she was squarely in the wrong.
AB has vowed to reveal the “receipts” by today to prove Crowe did indeed attack her so we’ll have to wait for the truth to come out before picking a side. Who do you think is really in the wrong??
