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.”

RZA Defends Russell Crowe in Azealia Banks Dispute, Confirms Russell Spit at Azealia

RZA is weighing in on Azealia Banks dispute with Russell Crowe, which occurred in a hotel room over the weekend.

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.

Ryan Gosling Tells the Story of His Horrifying Turkish Massage

Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe walk the carpet at the Italian premiere of The Nice Guys on Friday (May 20) at the Space Cinema Moderno in Rome, Italy.

The guys appeared on The Graham Norton Show this week and Ryan recounted the horrifying story of a Turkish massage he once received.

“I had a horrible experience having a Turkish massage, where this guy’s idea of a massage was to like take one leg and the other arm and try to connect it behind my back,” Ryan said.

“His belly went into my mouth,” he added. “You know when you get something weird in your mouth and if you’re eating something, your brain sends your tongue to figure out what it is? It’s not a conscious thought. It’s just like, is that a bone? Figure that out! The tongue goes in to figure it out. My tongue was like, ‘What is that? It’s a hairy belly!’”
