No Video Evidence in Azealia Banks Russell Crowe Incident


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.”

to play the devil's advocate, the footage could have been deleted

Oh, you mean she lied? Yeah. If her lips are moving she's either calling someone a slur, or lying.

1:46 - Good point; Now we see what Azealia signed up for when she accompanied RZA to the "party." As we see with the Kim K "robbery" that the rich pay extra to do their dirt in privacy. We will never really know what happened that night (The same what really happened in Whitney's hotel room and in Ronni Chasen's car in Beverly Hills. Azealia will never see any kind of justice in this case if she was indeed assaulted. She needs to take this L, learn from it, get her mind right, and decide if she really wants to continue is such a wicked industry...

You shouldn't say there is footage until you have THA footage. I believe yeah it could've been deleted lost or non-existent to the point you just got some blurry stuff. However this chick constantly in drama saying she got whatever to prove it. I think they both telling the truth, I think Russell Crowe was talking shit and Azealia Banks put him in his place and he got butthurt and I think she decided enough is enough and really went in and he was like fuck "fuck you nigga you outta here" Of course RZA was slow and kinda dumb and weak for A.bringing her and not stanning for your crew but it sounds like she was not "HIS" crew and he just let that shit flow by. In any case he brought her he should've stepped in long before shit pops off and handled it and then afterwards talk to both parties before the media or kept their names out ya mouth. Banks you said you where done with fuckery, done with fighting, done with drama. You asked for another chance and lo and behold not even three months you back to beefing. Not a good look

It's just sad. She keeps talking about her music but she doesn't realize she is her own worst enemy. Even if the incident happened exactly how she said it did, at this point it's almost like the "boy who cried wolf" because she has started so much drama in the past. There have been numerous times that she went in on ppl with no provocation (like that Disney girl skai that boy band guy and many more). Again it's just sad that she constantly gets in her own way.

Why can't she just be creative in her own lane and leave ppl alone? Yeah we know those entertainers are treacherous but she chose be in that industry. Either do your own thing, or get out. Can't keep making enemies because that turns many fans off.

Her fans want her music, but it seems she's too busy causing twitter beefs and drama to ever deliver.

:(

It sounds like someone had a TALK with Azealia.

So now explain to me again how RZA and Banks end up at a Russell Crowe part? This just seems sooo random.

Co-sign Prissa o. I say the same thing. She up there arguing when everyone knows the industry is a cesspool of lies, smoke and mirrors, and in my Mathew Knowles voice Jedhi Mind tricks. If anyone thought for a minute that Russell was a choir boy, think again. Does anyone remember the time he threw the telephone at the front desk person at the hotel because he supposedly "got pissed off".. I'm not saying what he did to her was right in anyway, Russell just showed his true colors because his "Gladiator Days" were long gone.

Do not think for a minute that she did not research Russell before hand.

@7:26 RZA cast and directed Crowe in the Man with the Iron Fists. It was Crowe who invited RZA over and let him bring a +1. A director and an actor having dinner isn't strange.

I'm tired of hearing about this creepy ass Illuminati dinner. Azealia, get some therapy and make more music because your talent is amazing.

And kind of off topic, why is Azealia's nipples always on hard in her pictures and costumes? Does she ice them up and do that on purpose! WTF?! She is weird and freaky!
