Azealia Banks Allegedly Threatened to Stab People at Russell Crowe’s Party

October 17, 2016 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Azealia Banks is known for being outspoken and perhaps crazy at times, but she reportedly hit a new level over the weekend. TMZ reports that the controversial rapper was at a small party hosted by Russell Crowe when she threatened to stab people and had to be ejected.

According to the site, Banks was at the dinner and music party at Crowe’s hotel room in Beverly Hills along with ten people, having been brought by RZA. Things got bad when Banks laughed at Crowe’s music selection and called him and another guest “boring white men.” A witness says that when a female guest told Banks to pipe down, the rapper told 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**t.” She then used the N-word several times.

Crowe reportedly stayed calm and, when Banks reached back with her glass, grabbed her in a bear hug and carried her out of the hotel room. He had hotel security remove her from the premisis.

Banks claims that Crowe was the person who used the N-word and that he choked her, threw her out and spit on her. The site also reports that Banks has filed a battery report with police because Crowe won’t apologize for physically removing her.

At least four of the guests have given statements, all describing Banks as “erratic.” RZA has backed up the story as well.
