Azealia Banks Reportedly Thrown Out Of Russell Crowe’s Party For Acting Like Azealia Banks

You can dress Azealia Banks up, but unleashing her on the poor, unsuspecting public sometimes proves to be an eyebrow-raising experience.

Banks, ever the shy, reserved flower of recorded song, reportedly attended a party in Russell Crowe‘s suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday (October 15), where she was the guest of fellow party-goer RZA. According to TMZ, Azealia was soon heard mocking Crowe’s selection of music at the shindig and branding the group “boring white men.” The site notes that “a female guest jumped to Russell’s defense and suggested Banks pipe down.”

With Azealia Banks being Azealia Banks, the songbird is said to have offered this fairly diplomatic retort: “You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino shit.” [Note to self: Good reminder to toss Kill Bill in the Netflix queue, because it’s been a hot minute.]

TMZ also states that Banks peppered her response with a few N bombs, though witnesses say host Crowe remained calm throughout the tirade, and that it was only when Banks reached for a glass that “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.”

In a since-deleted Facebook status update, Banks reportedly alleged quite the opposite by noting Crowe hurled the N word at her, choked her and spit on her. (TMZ points out that even Banks’ friend RZA acknowledged that Azealia was the one to use the N word.)
