RZA Says Azealia Banks Behaved Like an ‘Obnoxious Erratic Individual’ at Russell Crowe’s Party
A day after Azealia Banks called RZA “a chump” for not coming to her aid after Russell Crowe kicked her out of his Los Angeles party, the Wu-Tang Clan founder responded to Banks’ remarks in a detailed Facebook post.
In his missive, RZA revealed that he did bring Banks as his guest to the party and was shocked by her behavior towards other partygoers at the shindig, which took place at the BHH Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills, Calif.
"Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room, she becomes loud and obnoxious," he types. "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... 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," he continued.
RZA added, "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."
RZA maintains that the incident wasn't about race or gender and that he didn't hear Crowe call Banks the N-word. "I'm not trying to protect Russell from anything he is a man of his own Caliber," he writes. "My art, talent and success speaks for it self and Azealia's recent slander of me and self victimization reflect's the personality of the person that was in that room that night."
This is a stark contrast to what Banks said actually happened that night. The "212" rapper told TMZ in a video interview that Crowe choked, spat and hurled the N-word at her while he tossed her out of the party.
Banks claims it all started when the men in the room start ragging on her so she ragged back at them. This apparently made Crowe very mad, which resulted in the confrontation. She also denies that she was threatening anyone at the party with a wine glass.
Russell Crowe has yet to respond to Banks' assault claims. There's no word if Banks plans to file any criminal charges against the Oscar-winning actor.
