Oscar Award winner, Russell Crowe planned a fun dinner night at his hotel suite for himself and a couple friends so he invited just 10 people including his good friend, rapper RZA.
The Wu-Tang clan member RZA brought along a date, young controversial rapper Azealia Banks.
The plan was for Russell and his few friends to hang, eat good food and listen to good music. Sadly that didn’t go to plan.
According to TMZ ;
“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”
Azealia then attempted to throw her glass, that was when she was grabbed by Crowe who carried her out of the suite. He called hotel security guards who proceeded to remove Azealia from the grounds.
However, Banks went on Facebook and narrated a totally different story which has been deleted now saying “I went to a party at Russell Crowe’s suite, at which he called me a n****r, choked me, threw me out and spat at me. Last night was one of the hardest nights of sleep I’ve had in along time. The men in the room allowed it to happen. I feel terrible today.”
In another post, also deleted, she wrote: “I wish I had someone to beat him up for me.”
