the chemicals in the bleaching cream have gotten into her blood system and crossed the blood/brain barrier.

I have been saying that this young lady is mentally and emotionally unstable. She needs HELP! and will just keep going down hill until she gets it. Pretty much nobody in the industry wants to deal with her, but now it's 100% official. If sh she doesnt get help she will end up hurting herself or someone else badly. Look at Foxy Brown, nobody wants to deal with her.

Never do business with Dame, Diddy or Azelia Banks. Nobody ever leaves happy. Everybody has shade for them. It sounds like he was either doing the right thing or trying to get some side pussy. Either way it was a bad look.
Expect for her to claim they fucked or he tried to fuck next. It's how she handles everything.

And bong, just like that, she commits career suicide.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

I believe him. Azealia is done.

The nail that closed the casket. Maybe she can be an escort or start a weave shop.

She did this at the Beverly Hills Hotel? How embarrassing for RZA. I hope she didn't ruin his business relationships with this. Sadly, he was trying to work with her in spite of her reputation. She should know that female artists of color have to work twice as hard and be on their best behavior in those types of parties. Goes to show you have to be careful helping people. They need to be a long-established friend or business associate before I act as a reference for someone. The wrong reference can end up costing you time, money, and peace of mind. Bye Azealia.

I totally believe Rza! He has no reason to lie! She only has negative things to be heard about her, so unfortunately she is DONE! He did so much for her and she faked it up! Get the help you need because all you seem to get into is trouble!

"Bong" is an old-school Queens, North Jersey, Staten Island term akin to "Bam" as in "instintaneously."

Anyone peep what he said about flying her to LA to "work?" I still think he was pimping her/she may have paying off a debt to RZA re: that loan her mentioned

ebonyhud said...

So you give all that detail....but you go straight from her being obnoxious to threatening to cut a girl. So after all that detail, you're telling me that she just did that out of the blue. I want to know what the girl said. That conveniently is left out of all the accounts. Sounds like she was being rude and the other girl got rude back but wasn't about that life. Sounds like they were having a bugie ass hollywood party and she was bored. She should have just left. Why stay if you you don't like anybody at the party.

Sounds like evrybody in the place was lit and who knows what *really* went down.

@7:20 - She and RC were allegedly flirting, then his girlfriend sat down next to her (and it sounds like tried to initiate a threesome) and Azealia blew up. Definately not the way to handle it, but she's delusional if she didn't understand how it goes down at those parties

she has always been erratic and crazy.

I can only imagine how she would act in a room of black celebs. This is not her first time clowning in public.

We'll hear about her doing the same yrs from now but at Walmart. maybe THEN folks will believe she is bonkers.

Women of color need to work twice as hard? Why because being born with beautiful brown skin is somehow considered a disability or a disadvantage?
Why is it when Amanda Byrnes was going ape shit crazy I didn't hear any mess about "oh these white women obsessed with Black men (Drake) need to work extra hard to bag one"?
Why is it that when one single person acts an ass we drag our Black skin into the mix?
Shut the fuck and sit down whoever THOUGHT that mess, wallow in shame and hatred for Black skin in your own fucking mind.
She is no more crazy for being Black than he and RZA are PERVERTS for their old asses trying to "hang" with some young fresh cooty cat.
Inappropriate all the way around.

RZA thought either thought he was a pimp or was actually a genie in a bottle that was having trouble waking the fuck up. rub rub Bong!

@8:49, you've never heard Diahann Carroll, Eartha Kitt, and Condi Rice's quotes? "You have to work twice as hard to be considered equal" is an old saying. Please stop being hyperemotional and look at the context before you flip out.

I'm sure some people at the party expected Azealia to bug out, and she gave them what she wanted. Stop looking at life for what you want it to be an deal with what it is. We as people of color can be talented, hardworking, and beautiful but will never get the same breaks and concessions as our white counterparts. So we have to bust our asses and leave nothing to chance. As coach John Cheyney use to say, "they'll try to take everything from you if you Black an you leave an iota of a chance. You have to make it virtually impossible for them to cheat you, but expect it anyway."

People of color have to stay on our toes, and leave nothing to chance. Her record deal was NOT a sure thing so she should have chilled and played her position until the deal was done. I'll never be ashamed of looking racism in the face for what it is in America: A fact of life and something to work around, not let define you. Peace.

8:49 how did you get that from what 7:04 wrote? And yes, Amanda Bynes still has a career and makes residuals and Azealia just blew what was left of her career. Yes, Black people do not get the same opportunities to bounce back after mental illness, so please stop acting like they do

Azealia, girl, are you 8:49?

@ebonyhud, I thought the same thing. RZA's story is still missing some details. Azealia didn't grab a glass and threaten to cut anybody for no reason. It's sad though because it's so easy to use her history as a means of justifying whatever went down was her fault. Meanwhile, there are three voices involved in this story--two older men and a young woman. The two men have been inside the industry for a long time, the young woman not so much. Shit ain't adding up. And even if she was being rude and obnoxious, it seems like that kinda behavior is only acceptable for white men. If being rude or erratic was a career killer, half of Hollywood wouldn't be working including Russell's ass. Remember when he was charged with assault in yet another hotel room years ago? Oh but he's just a "bad boy" right? Like Charlie Sheen?

And Azealia looks like she weighs all of 100lbs. Did Russell really have to pick her up to remove her? Wack!

9:12 p.m. A bear hug would leave no marks and less chance for injury. It's a safe way to remove someone who is brandishing a weapon. Before you look like a fool rushing to Bank's side just look up her tag on this site. This bitch stay talking slick and doing dumb shit. Walking off of shoes, bleaching her skin the list goes on. She had one hot song and hasn't done shit since. There's a reason for that. This is the end of her career.

I remember that @9:12pm, they probably (a husband and wife) were paid off and it was swept under the rug cause the victim was white
in that other incident

Anonymous said...

To me, after reading this story from all the sides including hers, she is one that csn't handle her liquor. She seems to be one of those angry drunks that goes off for no reason and allows the little voices in her head to create a TOTALLY different narrative for what's going on in a room than what's REALLY happening.

Nobody could have been paying attention to her and she could sit there and come up with a whole story of how much they hate or are hating on her to explain why.

OR she could start to think extremely highly of herself and start looking down on everyone around her as if she's just trying to enjoy her night, but people just won't get off her clit or stay outta her personal space.

Either way, it's beyond sad because I know people like this and as long as they have access to pills and/or liquor there is no hope to get better.

I'm trying to figure out why people still deal with her in the first place? Helping crazy folks out (RZA) only prolongs the crazy.

igaf about none of these occultists, but i disagree with folks sayin RZA's story is believable. to me, it is not. what i take from RZA's story is that he is a coon and a bottom boy for hollywierd. the story he gave has the tone of a white female PR rep, so i question that. and it seems that the purpose of his story is to act as an open letter to let hollywierd know that he is willing to do whatever to stay "in the circle" since this incident has soured his reputation. unfortunately for him, he eliminated the part of the story that led to AB becoming verbally abusive and attempting to cut someone in the first place. no one does these things for no reason. if AB was that crazy - acting out for no reason, that is - he would've seen signs of this mental instability looooong before this incident. other facts to consider: RC is a high school drop out, ex-drug dealer who likes to flirt with gay men but then become abusive toward them if they flirt back. he has physically abused ex-girlfriends and according to rumors, he enjoys "brawling" and fights dirty, as he even bit an opponent once. so, i believe AB's version. but what i want to know is, wtf kind of dark, freaky, occult orgy was going on in that BHH suite that had all of theses (seemingly unrelated) characters together? the BHH is a known spot for hollywierd rituals, to collect blackmail material and to carry out hits (ie whitney houston's death). my opinion is that some shady shit went on in that room that got out of control and they are all (RZA, AB, RC) keeping hush on those details.
