Even WE were a little nervous when Azealia vowed to sue T.I. after he threatened to ‘end’ her in a pretty terrifying Instagram rant on June 17. But apparently she’s going to have to try a lot harder than that to scare the 33-year-old ‘Whatever You Like’ rapper, who ‘wasn’t rattled at all’ by her threat, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Rappers Azealia Banks and T.I. have been trading disses for days, and just when she thought she had him cornered with her promise to take him to court, T.I. proved he wasn’t the least bit intimidated when he stepped out to attend the screening of his new music video for “No Mediocre” on June 17. Here’s what went down.
TI & Azealia Banks Lawsuit: He’s Not Freaked By Her Threat To Sue
By now you’ve probably seen the tweets, or at least read about them. Azealia launched her new feud with T.I. on June 16, when she bashed his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, on Twitter, saying, “U want no mediocre but … Have you seen your wife?” T.I. fired back on June 17, calling her a “gremlin-baby,” among other unpleasant things, and threatening, “I WILL END YOU.”
That’s when Azealia revealed her plan to take T.I. to court. Many of the other tweets she’s fired off in response have since been deleted, but with the battle raging on, we were eager to see how T.I. would be feeling at the screening of his new music video for
“No Mediocre” at the SVA Theatre in NYC on June 17. And the answer was … just fine!
“TI was in a really good mood, he was taking photos with fans — it was like he didn’t have a care in the world,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He said, ‘I don’t appreciate people attacking my family, I countered her on a public forum, just like she did to me.'”
T.I., who was on hand to moderate a panel with comedian Lil Duval, was texting with his wife, Tiny, all night, our source reveals. And he was in such a “great mood” after the screening that he even treated his managers and execs to a big dinner at Del Friscos.
“He has multiple businesses, he’s an award-winning artist, and Azealia Banks is still struggling to get her career off the ground. He doesn’t care, he’s not worried about her. He wasn’t rattled at all [by her threatening to sue],” our source adds.
Azealia Banks Threatens To Sue T.I. After His Wild Instagram Diss
But are Azealia and T.I. really headed for the courtroom? After Azealia fired off multiple Twitter disses aimed at T.I. — “I’m taller than you in my heels,” “Come see me n****,” “And come by yourself,” to name a few — she finally concluded by saying, “Guess who’s about to get sued for threatening me!”
Even though Azealia did start the feud, we don’t blame her for freaking after T.I.’s insane Instagram diss:

So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should T.I. be worried about Azealia’s lawsuit threat? Will this feud continue? Let us know!
