Azealia Banks managed to get herself kicked out of actor Russell Crowe’s hotel suite — but both parties have conflicting stories as to what went down.
According to Azealia, she went as a guest to a party being thrown by Russell in his hotel suite and says she got choked, called a ‘n*gger,’ spat at and thrown out. In her Facebook posts about the night, she didn’t quite explain what led up to her alleged assault.
According to witnesses who spoke to TMZ about the party, Azealia was acting ‘erratic’ and threatened to cut partygoers before sh*t hit the fan.
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.
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.
We can picture the night unfolding from both perspectives. It’s unfortunate it all had to go down like that.
