Something REALLY wild seems to have gone down between Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe at a private party on Oct. 15. The actor reportedly kicked the rapper out of his hotel suite after she displayed bizarre behavior, but she has a much different story to tell — and she even alleges assault on Russell’s part. YIKES!
“To recap my night, I went to a party at Russell Crowe’s suite, at which he called me a n***er, choked me, threw me out and spat on me,” Azealia Banks allegedly wrote on Facebook. “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.” She reportedly added, “Just feel so low and mishandled and alone and f***ing depressed right now. I wish I had someone to beat him up for me.”
She eventually deleted the posts, but did add, “I have receipts. Stay tuned,” hinting that she’s planning to prove her side of the story at some point. However, Russell’s version of the night’s events are quite different, according to TMZ.
The site reports that Azealia showed up to the party as a plus one for RZA, and quickly started causing trouble by laughing at the music and calling the actor and his guests “boring white men.” She then reportedly made a shocking speech, in which she threatened to stab partygoers in the throat and make them bleed, and allegedly attempted to throw a glass, which is when Russell “grabbed her in a bear hug and carried her out of the suite,” TMZ claims.
Other guests reportedly told officials that Azealia’s behavior throughout the night was “erratic.” HollywoodLife.com has reached out to the actor’s rep for comment.
