Azealia Banks And Russell Crowe Got Into A Physical Altercation At A Hotel Party

Both are telling extremely different versions of what happened that night.

Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe are beefing? I know, that headline sounds like a celebrity mad lib gone wrong, but apparently it really happened.

TMZ reports that things went sour at a small hotel party Russell threw on Saturday night. According to their sources, Azealia was the "plus one" of rapper RZA, who Crowe invited along with nine others to his Beverly Hills hotel room for a chill dinner party.

Eyewitnesses told TMZ that the trouble started when Banks laughed openly at Crowe's music selection, calling him and another guest "boring white men." Another woman at the party defended Crowe and told Banks to cut it out. Banks allegedly launched into a weird speech that included the phrase, "You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino s**t."

After she was done, Banks went to finish her drink. Crowe then grabbed her in a "bear hug" and carried her out of the hotel suite. After she'd been removed, he called security, who escorted her from the premises.

Don't go condemning Azealia just yet though. According to the rapper, the night went nothing like that. In Facebook posts that have since been deleted, she claimed Crowe called her the n-word, choked her, and spit on her.

"To recap my night, I went to a party at Russell Crowe's suite, at which he called me a n****, choked me, threw me out and spat at me," she wrote in one of the posts. "Last night was one of the hardest nights of sleep I've had in a long time. The men in the room allowed it to happen. I feel terrible today."

So what is the truth? It's unclear, but judging from the Facebook post below, this isn't over just yet.
