Azealia Banks Is Feuding with Russell Crowe, and This Rapper Just Took Sides

RZA shared his take on their hotel toom confrontation.

This might be the strangest celebrity feud of all time. Oscar winner/Hollywood bad boy Russell Crowe currently has some beef with rapper/constant pot-stirrer Azealia Banks. Their feud started after she showed up to a party that the actor was throwing at the Beverly Hills Hotel. She was there as a guest of fellow MC RZA. They reportedly got into a confrontation at the get-together -- and different folks tell different accounts of what went down.

She claims that Russell got physical with her and used a racial slur at her. Others claim she was the one that dropped the word and threatened fellow guests: "You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino s***." At some point, Russell ejected her from the party (via a bear hug). Now RZA is speaking out.

"Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious," he said, in part, on Facebook. "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. 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. Nevertheless I made sure she got home safe."

For the most part Russell has remained mum about the incident (there is this tweet and this statement via his reps), but Azealia responded to RZA.

"RZA has clearly been given no legal advice and went to straight to TMZ out of his feelings to try and gaslight me. Whatever pieces are left of his brain after years and years of smoking dust stupidly allowed him to ramble himself into incriminating his friend, and completely debunking their entire made up theory," she wrote on Facebook. "You mean to tell me, that a 300lb man needed to use ALL OF THAT FORCE, to remove an 'erratic' guest from a party? My uber records/hotel surveillance shows me arriving to the party at 9:45pm, the incident occurred around 2:45am, I were supposedly erratic, how did I possibly end up spending THAT MUCH time at your party. If I were this supposed party monster, how the F*** did russell find time to tweet a link to my song?"
