If this account of events is indeed true, Azealia Banks is officially off her rocker. The enigmatic, some would say bat sh*t crazy, artist was reportedly kicked out of Russell Crowe‘s hotel room after she started acting a fool.
Word is, it was Crowe who booted Banks, who was there as RZA’s guest, out of the room himself.
The bizarre incident went down Saturday night at Russell’s room at a Bev Hills hotel, where he’d invited about 10 people over to have dinner and listen to music. One of his guests was RZA, who brought Azealia along.
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.
Azealia posted a different version of events, claiming Crowe called her the n-word, choked her, threw her out and spit on her.
Of course, Azealia Banks and Russel Crowe versions of events are a bit different. Reportedly, she says it was Crowe who called her the N-word. However, Banks deleted the claims she made on Facebook, but not before they were screen capped (via Metro).
However, witnesses, including RZA, who worked with Crowe on The Man With The Iron Fists—and recently decided to help give Banks waning career a boost—maintain she was the one who was acting “erratic.”
All jokes aside, it sounds like Azealia Banks needs serious help. No shots.
