Rapper Azealia Banks is in the news again and this time it’s not about her going off on twitter about random celebrity. This time Azealia lets her guard down by getting emotional during an Access Hollywood interview, when asked on a Russell Crowe incident, choking up, she had this to say:


‘Every time, every time something like this happens I’m always like being blamed for, like, wanting this kind of attention,


‘Like who the f*** wants to tell somebody they got spat on? You know, that’s humiliating. And I’m just like really, really humiliated.’


According to the ‘Slay-Z’ rapper, Crowe choked her, spat on her and made a racial slur as he threw her out of his hotel suite, earlier this month. The pair were reportedly at Crowe’s party at the Beverly Hills Hotel where Azealia was invited by rapper and producer RZA who was trying to help her get a record deal.




Banks also claims that Crowe, 52, had been drinking and had mocked the quality of one of her music videos. She then responded by dissing his career, telling him ‘Well nobodies checking for you right now… so whoa whoa whoa let’s settle down’. It all went down hill from there for the ‘212’ singer, who reportedly then got into a heated exchange with a female guest while holding a glass in her hand which she allegedly threatened the guest with, which Banks denies.


She was then removed from the party when she claims Crowe assaults her by choking, spitting and almost literally throwing her out.


However, at least four guests/witnesses who gave statements during the investigation used the word ‘erratic’ to describe Azealia’s behaviour and that Crowe had behaved appropriately when the situation escalated with the female guest.


So… with all that said it’s looking like Azealia had another one of her tyrannical outbursts at an exclusive party which resulted in her being thrown out. How she was thrown out might have been a bit extreme but Azealia seems to be playing the victim… again! Though RZA did confirm, in an interview with TMZ, that Russell spat at Banks.
