Russell Crowe Won't Be Charged in Azealia Banks Hotel Incident

Russell Crowe Won't Be Charged in Azealia Banks Hotel Incident

Russell Crowe will not be charged after removing Azealia Banks from his Beverly Hills Hotel suite back in October. The district attorney said his actions were justified, TMZ reports.

It was reported at the time that Russell physically removed her from his hotel room after she made threats. Azealia also alleged that Russell made derogatory comments and choked her. It was later confirmed that Russell spit at Azealia during the incident.

The L.A. County D.A.’s Office interviewed people who witnessed the incident and they confirmed Azealia was hurling racial slurs and was aggressive. Russell was “justified to prevent the imminent violence threatened by Banks,” and the spitting was “incidental to preventing more serious threatened violence.”
