Azealia Banks is continuing her press tour following her alleged altercation with Russell Crowe over the weekend.
As we’ve reported, the 25-year-old is claiming the Oscar-winning actor “called me a n****r, choked me, threw me out, and spat at me” during an intimate Beverly Hills Hotel dinner party.
For the record, every witness has discredited the rapper’s telling of events that caused her to be kicked out of the hotel.
Apparently, Miz Banks believes the original TMZ report on the incident was leaked by Crowe himself — which definitely can’t be proven on the record.
The controversial artist vented to E! News in her latest interview:
“I would like him to apologize to me publicly now because [he] went to TMZ, [like an] idiot. I didn’t want to press charges because dealing with the police, dealing with the courts is such an inconvenient thing. I don’t want this happening. They say I’m doing this for attention. Who wants this kind of attention?”
At the end of the day, the New York native says she’s tired of being treated less-than in Hollywood:
“I’m pretty sure this happens to women in Hollywood so often, where you get chastised into a corner. Even his attorney called me and said something like, ‘If you say something about this, then you’ll never work in this town again.’ I’m pressing [charges] now.”
“He doesn’t get it. He thinks I’m just some little black girl from Harlem that doesn’t have any backing. They think they can just frame me.”
