Now she's just plain broke.
What was that name of Azealia Banks’s album title? Oh, yeah, “Broke with Expensive Taste.” Well, that’s proven to be true in the literal sense. Maybe Azealia is regretting that title now that she’s been slapped with a suit for $137,000. Having the lifestyle of a rockstar can come back to bite you, if you literally can’t put your money where your mouth is.
Azealia Banks has a number of claims to fame: hits like “Chasing Time” and “The Big Beat,” her Twitter scandal, and being one of the first accounts to be officially suspended by the corporation… Now it seems like you can add “credit card lawsuit” to that list.
Azealia must have gotten too strong a taste of the high life and gotten carried away… to the tune of $137k. Now she’s being trailed and taken to court by credit card companies who just want to see a percentage of the star’s apparently dwindling income.
See you in court!
As reported by Page Six, Azaelia signed up for a Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card in 2012 with the California-based bank, City National, according to the Manhattan Supreme Court suit.
(Apparently, all it takes is five years to rack up nearly $150k in debt.)
It wasn’t until December of 2016 that Azaelia must have fallen on hard times and fell behind on her payments. On that card alone, she owes $79,000.
More Money, More Problems
In May of 2015, Azaelia got another Visa card and racked up a balance of $8,000 between then and now. Did $87,000 in debt not seem like enough?
In addition to these first two lines, she was inexplicably granted another line of credit. Did she budget responsibly with this one? Well, if racking up $50,000 of debt counts as responsible budgeting, then yes, she did!
Now, apparently enough is enough, and the banks are ready to get what they’re owed.
