Azealia Banks was back in court yesterday (April 3), but this time everything went as planned. While on her best behavior, the “212” rapper pled guilty to being a boob biter, and also completed her anger management obligations. 

Reports Page Six:

Bad-girl rapper Azealia Banks smiled sweetly and played nice with reporters and her judge Tuesday as she pleaded guilty in her long-running “boob bite” case — after finally satisfying the conditions of her plea deal by completing the rage-controlling regime.

Dressed in denim jeans, a fur vest over a black leather jacket, leather knee-high boots and her signature black leather gloves, Banks strutted confidently into Manhattan Criminal Court and admitted to disorderly conduct in the 2015 case.

“Yes,” the 26-year-old told Judge Angela Badamo when asked to affirm her guilt in the incident outside Meatpacking club Up & Down, which saw an enraged Banks chomp down on a female bouncer’s breast.

Banks will also have to pay a $120 surcharge and abide by an order of protection.

The “212” performer arranged her no-jail deal more than a year ago, but the case had dragged on because she failed to prove that she’d completed all of her anger-management program — which was evident when she hissed at courtroom audiences and called reporters covering her trial “roaches” — responding to their questions with, “Shut your ass up.”

But yesterday Banks didn’t react to reporters and went about her business.
