An Arrest Warrant Has Been Issued For Azealia Banks

After the rapper missed her court day yesterday, a judge laid down the law.

So remember when Azealia Banks got in trouble for biting someone's boob back in 2015? Yeah, that was weird. The story is that she was attending a private party at an NYC nightclub when she got into it with a security guard; according to Page Six, Banks attacked the woman and bit her in the boob. It was not a good look.

But you know what's an ever worse look? Not showing up in court. Banks had a hearing on Monday related to the 2015 incident, only the rapper declined to show her face. According to Page Six, her lawyer appeared on her behalf and relayed the following message from Banks: "I can be back tomorrow if the court needs it."

Banks lawyer said that his client was out of the country and later issued a statement to the press, claiming that the rapper got her dates mixed up and couldn't get back in time.

"[Banks] was in France for Fashion Week due to meetings and other social gatherings and was not able to arrange her flight in time to appear today," reads the statement. "She apologizes and will apologize in person to the Court for missing her scheduled hearing."

None of it mattered, though; the judge was none too pleased with Azealia's absence and issued a bench warrant for her arrest. So, that's that. Is Azealia Banks ever not involved in some kind of trouble these days, though? Who knows how this will play out.
