Russell Crowe Threw Azealia Banks Out Of A Hotel Suite After Her Foul-Mouthed Rant
She was on some 'real Tarantino shit'.
Update: Azealia Banks has reportedly contacted police about Russell Crowe forcibly removing her from his hotel suite.
She's accusing him of battery, according to TMZ, having previously alleged in a now-deleted Facebook post that Crowe used the n-word, "choked" her, threw her out of his room and spat on her.
It's claimed that she initially asked for an apology for him, but when reps for Crowe refused to give one (because he denied being in the wrong), she reported the matter to the Beverly Hills Police Department. The police have not stated how they will proceed.
Banks publicly responded to the controversy through her manager on Twitter, who wrote: "Azealia is tremendously distraught and disheartened. She is shell shocked and will speak out on the incident once she has had time to process the brutality and abuse she was unjustly subjected to."

Original Story: Azealia Banks was reportedly kicked out of Russell Crowe's hotel suite after a dinner party went a bit awry.
According to TMZ, the controversial rapper was attending the small gathering as a "plus one" of RZA on Saturday night (October 15 ) at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
The incident reportedly kicked off when Banks laughed at Crowe's music selection and called him and at least one other guest "boring white men", according to eyewitness accounts.
A female guest then suggested she calm down, before she apparently made a strong threat towards them.
"You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino shit," Banks reportedly said. She apparently dropped a few n-bombs, too.
She then allegedly reached for a glass before Crowe bear-hug grabbed her and threw her out of the suite, and called security guards to remove her from the grounds.
The rapper reportedly claimed in a now-deleted Facebook post (via The Mirror) that Crowe dropped the n-word, "choked" her, threw her out and spat on her.
However, TMZ reports that at least four guests described her behaviour as "erratic", and that even RZA said she used the n-word and not her host.
Banks has previously stirred a lot of controversy, having allegedly assaulted a security guard at a club in LA last year. She was not charged.
