Russell Crowe kicked Azealia Banks out of his hotel after she allegedly threatened to “cut” his guests and “watch them bleed.” The incident went down Saturday night (Oct. 15) at the Beverly Hills Hotel. According to reports, Crowe invited 19 people over for dinner and one of those guests was RZA, who brought Azealia as a plus one. One eyewitness claims the drama started when Banks loudly laughed at Russell’s music selection, and then called him and a friend, “boring white men,” that’s when another guest jumped in and told Banks pipe down.
That’s when Banks allegedly started making threats, saying to crow 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***.” Witnesses also claim that she said n****a a few times all while Crowe stayed calm. Banks then reached for her glass, cocked it back and that’s when Russell bear hugged her and carried her out of the suite. Hotel security was called and removed Banks from the property.
Azealia posted a different story on Facebook, claiming Crowe called her the n-word, choked her, threw her out and spit on her. Four witnesses told investigators that Banks was “erratic.” RZA has even said that Russell didn’t say the n-word. Read Banks’ post below.
