Another voice has spoken up about the alleged moonshine-fueled messiness that happened in Russell Crowe’s room at the Beverly Hills Hotel last Saturday night. This time we’re hearing from the person responsible bringing human tornado Azealia Banks to Russell’s hotel room party, RZA. Shortly after the news broke of Russell and Azealia’s throwdown, sources were saying that RZA was corroborating Russell Crowe’s story that it was Azealia who was throwing around the n-word. RZA has released a statement on Facebook today confirming that, as well as his feelings on this whole situation. And not surprisingly, it sounds like he really regrets bringing Azealia Banks to that party.
While we’re waiting for the Beverly Hills Hotel’s security team to provide the receipts, let’s hear what more Azealia Banks has to add to her side of what went down in Russell Crowe’s hotel suite on Saturday night.
Azealia went off to The Sun and said at first, Russell was very sweet and flirty with her. She says he was smoking weed and drinking a cocktail of vodka, whisky, and moonshine and put his hand on her leg while calling her “beautiful. Then shit soured when Russell got up and another girl sat down. Azealia thinks it was his girlfriend. She claims the girlfriend informed her that Russell thought she was hot, to which Azealia replied, “I’m not here for that.” Azealia says Russell wasn’t so flirty after that.
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 Banks Reportedly Got Kicked Out Of Russell Crowe’s Hotel Suite For Acting Like Azealia Banks (UPDATE)
Yesterday, I saw the headline “Azealia Banks Alleges Physical Abuse at the Hands of Actor Russell Crowe” and it immediately activated the question mark maker inside of my head. My brain shot out a thousand Huhs?, Whats? and Hows? And the easy answer to all of those questions is: 2016!! 2016 keeps finding extremely creative ways to show us that it’s the corner where “mess” and “fuckery” meet.
In a now-deleted Facebook post, Azealia Banks claimed that noted phone thrower Russell Crowe choked her out, spit at her, called her the n-word and threw her out of his hotel suite. Multiple witnesses told TMZ that yes, Azealia was thrown out of Russell’s suite, but she was tossed through the door after she acted a mess and threatened to stab him and another guest in the froat. You mean to tell me that Russell Crowe and Azealia Banks were in the same room together and shit turned into a scene from a Bad Girls Club reunion. That’s surprising since Azealia and Russell have always been known to be reasonable and calm.
It feels like as soon as 2016 was born on January 1st at 12:01am, it dropped massive amounts of acid and has kept dropping massive amounts of acid, because bitch has taken us for a wild trip and the year isn’t even halfway over yet. Recently, 2016 gave us a bizarre Twitter fight about Hillary Clinton between grown person Debra Messing and fellow grown person Susan Sarandon (and Debra MESSing is still at it). Well, 2016 has once again gone over to the box marked “Random As Fuck Feuds” and randomly pulled out two names: Azealia Banks and Sarah Palin. The way that this year has been going, I fully expect to hear about a back alley knife fight between Emmanuel Lewis and Carrot Top before 2017 begins.
Seen above looking like an Asian mannequin in goth stripper drag, Iggy Azalea did an interview and a spread with Elle Canada, because I guess a real cover-worthy star like The Hot Dog Hooker was either not available or turned their asses down. Iggy talked about her grand return to social media (cut to the tumbleweeds and crickets on Twitter welcoming her back) after she hilariously tried to pick a fight with Papa John’s and had many a tweet war with her permanent arch rival Azealia Banks. Before I get into round (I lost) of the Great Value version of the Kanye vs. Taylor feud, let’s get into Iggy talking about how she replaced her born nose with a nose that Mattel made for her.
