Russell Crowe Kicks Azealia Banks Out of Party

  /  10.17.2016

After sparking feuds with the likes of Sarah Palin and Zayn Malik this year, Azealia Banks is now at odds with actor Russell Crowe.

The Oscar-winning Gladiator star reportedly kicked the Slay-Z rapper out of his Beverly Hills hotel suite on Saturday (Oct. 15) after tensions hit a boiling point, as per TMZ.

Azealia was her new label head RZA’s guest at the party, where about 10 people were invited for dinner. Witnesses say that Banks “laughed out loud” at Russell’s music selection and referred to him and at least one more guest as “boring white men.”

A woman tried defending Crowe, but Banks reportedly clapped back, 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 s***.” She reportedly used the n-word “a few” times, reached for a glass and cocked it back.

When Azealia did that, Crowe reportedly grabbed her in a bear hug and carried her out of his suite. Security guards eventually arrived and removed Banks from the grounds, according to this version of the story.

However, Banks had a different take on the night’s events in a since-deleted Facebook post. “To recap my night, I went to a party at Russell crowe’s suite, at which he called me a ni**er, choked me, threw me out and spat at me,” she wrote (via New York Daily News). “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.”

A spokesperson for Banks released a statement. “Azealia is tremendously distraught and disheartened,” said her rep. “She is shell shocked and will speak out on the incident once she has had time to process the brutality and abuse she was unjustly subjected to.”

At least four guests provided statements to law enforcement officials and described Banks’ behavior as “erratic.” Insiders say RZA has also admitted that Banks used the n-word and not Crowe. Crowe has not issued a statement on the incident, but his verified Twitter account retweeted the TMZ story.
