The RZA has finally broken his silence about the bizarre incident we reported on involving controversial rapper Azealia Banks and famed actor Russell Crowe. It’s not looking too good for Azealia once again who claimed she had receipts about what happened that night. RZA opens up about the night after Banks says she felt RZA “betrayed her” by not sticking up for her that night and doesn’t want to be associated with him “personally and professionally”.
To bring you up to speed if you don’t know exactly what happened, Azealia accused Russell Crowe of assaulting her by spitting on her and calling her the n-word. This all happened at a private dinner party Russell held at his Beverly Hills hotel suite. Multiple witnesses including the RZA backed Crowe insisting that Azealia was the one acting “erratic” and was the one slinging the n-word around before Crowe deposited her outside of his suite.
Today we get even more details from that night as the RZA opened up to his fans about the night and his dealings with the troubled rapper. In the lengthy Facebook post RZA talks about trying to help Azealia get back on her feet. He details the many times he has come to Azealia’s aid landing her a role in his new film Coco, securing her a record deal and even helping her out financially.
Azealia was brought to my attention while I was casting my next Film Coco. I heard the rumors of her problems in the industry but disregarded them with the rationality everyone is innocent until proven guilty. So my producer and I fought for her to be in the film and we succeeded. During the filming process things ran smooth and she delivered. Thus my only experience with her had been professional. The only brief social moment was at the wrap party. Therefore “I HAD NO REAL EXPERIENCE OF HER SOCIAL BEHAVIOR…”
A few weeks ago Azealia hit me up for some economic help and bong I gave a helping hand.
She then followed up asking me to help her get a record deal.
I called a friend and bong a record deal was on the table. The only clause my buddy gave was I be the filter because the word is “she is volatile”.
I called her and told her a deal was in the workings. She immediately, prematurely went to social media and claimed she signed a deal with RZA Yet no deal was signed.
He then follows that up with the full details of what happened that night in Crowe’s hotel suite pretty much corroborating with the other witnesses that night.
Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious.
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.
