We all know Azealia Banks has the ability to make a situation extremely messy, but apparently she can also cause heaps of trouble from thousands of miles away too. Apparently her witchcraft skills include remote viewing powers. Case in point, Azealia missing a court appearance because she was at a fashion show in Paris.
Pitchfork says Azealia was supposed to show up in court yesterday regarding that boob-biting incident from 2015 (aka the one in which she bit the boob of a female security guard at a New York club after she was granted entry). Azealia had a lot to talk about: misdemeanor assault and attempted assault charges, as well as disorderly conduct and harassment violations. But she was a no-show, because she had better things to do. Like be in Paris for Fashion Week. What’s she doing at Fashion Week? Well, it appears flashing her ass was on her to-do list.

Azealia has been in Paris for Fashion Week all week. According to her lawyer, she “mistakenly” thought the court date was March 8th, not the 6th. She just couldn’t book a flight home in time to make the hearing yesterday, and so she tried to send a close family member on her behalf. Her lawyer tells Pitchfork that she was in Paris for “meetings and other social gatherings“, and promises Azealia will apologize in person to the court for missing her hearing.
TMZ says the judge issued a bench warrant for her arrest. A bench warrant means police can arrest Azealia the second they spot her.
As for what was so important in Paris that Azealia would blow off a court hearing, well that I’m not sure. But I do know that Rihanna was showing her latest Fenty x Puma collection during Paris Fashion Week. If Rihanna happened to find a pile of rotten chicken nuggets in the pocket of her puffer coat and heard the sound of laughing before she hit the catwalk, she’ll know why.
