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.”
