When Russell Crowe and Azealia Banks ended up in the same hotel suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday night, it was bound to end one of two ways. Either they’d get into a spit-flying train wreck of a fight, or they’d realize that they’re both pus-filled rage demons who belong together and fall in love. The first one happened. Both Russell and Azealia agree that shit went down and she ended up getting kicked out of his hotel suite, but that’s the only thing they agree on. But TMZ says that security footage from the hotel may vindicate one of them.
Azealia, who has a history of wolf crying and being a violent mess, claims she’s the victim and did absolutely nothing wrong. Azealia says that Russell choked her, spit at her and called her the n-word before tossing her like a hotel phone. Russell, who has a history of being a violent mess, claims that Azealia is the one who got messy and threatened to stab tricks in the throat with a broken glass. Russell reportedly bear-hugged Azealia because he thought she was going to throw a wine glass. Many guests at Russell’s hotel suite dinner party co-sign his version of the fight. RZA, who brought Azealia as his plus one, supposedly said that she’s the one who kept using the n-word, not Russell.
Azealia filed a battery report with the Beverly Hills PD on Sunday. Azealia has also wet burped up a couple of statements on Facebook. Here’s one that she posted and deleted:
“The truth will be out on Wednesday. I am 100% innocent in this matter. No matter how you feel about me no person deserves to be handled that way. And I will not be threatened or chastised into keeping quiet.
This man MUST and WILL be held accountable for his actions. This is the most expensive mistake he will ever make in his life.”
I don’t know what is the “truth” that Azealia speaks of, but she could be talking about footage from a security camera in the hotel hallway.
TMZ says that Russell and Azealia’s shit puddle of a fight spilled out of his suite and into the hallway where security cameras may have caught some of it. Police are planning to look at the footage. In Azealia’s mind, she believes that if the footage comes out, we’ll all be deep-throating our words since it will show Russell attacking her. And Russell’s side believes that the footage will show that Azealia is lying.
2016 has been so bizarre that I will not be surprised if the footage doesn’t show Azealia and Russell at all. I will not be shocked if it instead shows Ryan Lochte getting for real robbed at gunpoint by actual robbers as thieves holding Kim Kartrashian’s ring run by. 2016 has seriously pushed us all into The Twilight Zone.
