Earlier this week, Azealia Banks sat down with Access Hollywood to reveal her side of the alleged altercation between her and A-List Actor Russell Crowe.
“Every time something like this happens, I’m always like being blamed for like wanting this kind of attention. Like, who fucking wants to tell someone they got spat on? That’s humiliating. I’m just really, really humiliated,” Banks said as she broke down crying.
Police stated that they weren’t able to find any video footage of the alleged physical altercation between Banks and Russell Crowe.
Banks shared her version of what went down that night . “It just happened so fast,” Banks explained before claiming Crowe was drinking and mocked her career. In return, she shot back at him. “Everyone was like, ‘Oh my god. How dare you.'” Banks accused Crowe of forcefully escorted her out of the hotel room after Banks had an exchange with a woman at the party.
Banks said in the Access Hollywood interview she is not sure what made Crowe snap. “Who knows? Maybe it was the moonshine? Maybe it was the rejection? Maybe it was the jokes?” Banks also discussed the lack of surveillance tapes of the events, and her feelings on the aftermath of the claims. She also alleged that RZA’s reaction to the whole thing was, “Don’t say anything.”
Wu-Tang member RZA, who was trying to work out a record deal for Banks at the time, remembered things differently. “Azealia threaten to cut a girl in the face with a glass, then actually grabs a glass and physically attacks for no logical reason. Russell blocked the attack and expelled her from the suite,” he wrote on Facebook, adding that her behavior that night was “obnoxious.”
As of last week, Banks mentioned that she will be pressing charges against Crowe for allegedly attacking her.
