RZA Defends Russell Crowe in Azealia Banks Dispute, Confirms Russell Spit at Azealia
Azealia was brought to Russell‘s room by RZA, and while there, she claims Russell assaulted her when he forcibly removed her from the room when she became violent.
“I invited her to meet me at the BHH Polo Lounge. Yet I head also planned on spending some time with my Buddy RC in his suite so I ask him can she join. He says “cool Bobby” so I invited her. Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious. There was nothing funny about her behavior. I felt a little embarrassed because she was my guest. Still verbal abuse can be tolerated but when it goes physical…” RZA wrote on Facebook. “Azealia threaten to cut a girl in the face with a glass, then actually grabs a glass and physically attacks for no logical reason. Russell blocked the attack and expelled her from the suite. Seeing is believing and I saw her behave as an obnoxious erratic individual and in the circles I frequent this was unprecedented. I was totally puzzles by her and thought maybe meds or booze or something had her zoned out.”
In addition, RZA went on TMZ Live and confirmed that Russell did not choke Azealia or call her anything derogatory. He did spit at her.
