Last week Harlem rapper Azealia Banks promised surveillance video from the Beverly Hills Hotel would prove she was spit on and manhandled by A-List actor Russell Crowe after she was thrown out of a party in his hotel suite [click here if you missed that].
Too bad no such video exists...
Sources close to the investigation tell TMZ there are tons of surveillance video in the common areas of the hotel, but none where Azealia Banks was thrown out.
Meanwhile Azealia tells Us Magazine,
“Even if I were proven to be telling the truth in this situation, people have built their case up against me, and honestly I don’t have the care or the time to try and fight millions … like, I can’t fight the whole world. I am tired of defending myself. You know, it’s just really unfortunate. People are going to think whatever they want to think about me. Y’all need to think about this damn music.”
“Realistically, to be honest, I really don’t want to [press charges]. Because I just don’t want this in the media. I want my music out. I just want to f--king put my music out. I just want my music to shine. I don’t want to be dealing with another episode, another thing, another whatever.”
“[Russell] feels that he did nothing wrong, so I’m just like, OK, if you want to pay a bunch of litigators and a bunch of people to apologize to me, then I guess that’s what you want to do. You could apologize to me for free now and make this all go away.”
