RZA breaks his silence about Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe altercation
A lot of haziness has surrounded the details of a fight between young New York rapper, Azealia Banks, and actor Russell Crowe. At the time, Azealia was the guest of legendary Wu-Tang Clan rapper, actor and director, RZA. Though silent for some time, RZA felt he needed to respond publicly after receiving flack for associating with Banks. But for those who bought Banks’s fabricated story, they attacked RZA for associating with a racist, woman hitting Russell Crowe. RZA tells his side of the story in a long Facebook post and interview with “TMZ Live.”
“Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious.” RZA announced on Facebook, “There was nothing funny about her behavior. I felt a little embarrassed because she was my guest.” Keep reading to get the whole story…
RZA tells ‘TMZ’ that Russell did not choke her or use the n bomb, even though Azealia was throwing insults and swinging violently. He said he did spit in her direction, but it came closer to hitting him as he was in the middle of the two outside of the hotel room.
