Azealia Banks Tells Her Side of Russell Crowe Story: 'He's Got Beer Belly & Jowls'

Azealia Banks is telling her side of the story after Russell Crowe kicked her out of his hotel room in an incident this past weekend.

The 25-year-old rapper alleges that she told one of Russell‘s friends his upcoming movie would suck.

“I don’t know, maybe Russell was supposed to be in that movie. But then Russell turns to me, and he was like, ‘Hey, you haven’t done anything in your career, and you’re so young, and you don’t know what you’re talking about. You don’t know what you’re talking about, you haven’t done anything in your career, blah, blah, blah.’ I was confused, I’m just like, wait, is he joking, is he serious? But I keep it light, and I’m just like, ‘OK, well, you’re not poppin’ anymore. Your best days are behind you, Russell Crowe. Nobody’s checking for Russell Crowe right now,’” she recalled to Us Weekly. “Like, I could just see him boiling. And he was just trying to, like, figure out how he was going to get me out of here. I even started putting on my shoes at that point.”

Azealia alleges that Russell used a derogatory word and assaulted her, but she also confirmed she’s not going to be pressing charges anymore.

“Even if I were being erratic, you should have enough sense to have me escorted out properly…and keep your hands and your spit to yourself.” RZA came to Russell‘s defense, but did confirm he spit on Azealia during the altercation.

Azealia got in one last dig in the interview, saying, “I’ve got youth and beauty, and he’s got beer belly and jowls! I got music. I got music, and I got youth.”

    So not only are you racist, but your an ageist as well. This woman deserves to be spat on. Everywhere she goes she creates some kind of ruckus. says alot of her character.

    What a young brat (cunt?). I’m no RC, but I would have slapped her. Srly. We all know that kind of girl at parties. Shitty heads.

  • backseatwriter

    She is tiring and boring.

  • Jennifer

    She sure is making her story sound credible by attacking Russel Crowe’s appearance and age. And I like how she not only disrespects him but his guests, but then she expects him to respect her when kicking her out. You verbally attack people and use unchoice language and yet you still demand respect? What an idiot.

    25 with no self control. I know 50 is the new 30. but I did not know 25 was the new 15.

  • MissyMiss

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Who is Azealia Banks compared to Academy winner Russel Crowe? Girl, LOL, bye.

  • Camden Coxon

    HER side of the story? I feel like that’s ALL we’ve been hearing. In fact I don’t think Russell Crowe has publicly issued any statement.
    Man I don’t even know who this loudmouth brat is, and here she is mouthing off about being more talented than Russell. Pleeease…just sit the f**k down….and have some self respect….then work on getting talent.
