The debacle featuring Oscar winning actor Russell Crowe and Azealia Banks continues to spiral out of control. After being embroiled in a heated confrontation this past weekend, Banks spoke exclusively with The Sun about her experience with Crowe and how he disrespected her during his party.
“I think he’s a racist, misogynist pig,” she said, explaining that Crowe was smoking weed and drinking alcohol before he spat on her and threw her out of his party. “This is a stain on me,” she added. “My femininity feels stained. I feel stained as a woman, I feel mishandled, I feel mistreated, I feel dirty. I feel very fucking low.”
Reports came out supporting Crowe and acknowledged that Banks was the one who sparked the encounter by threatening to attack one of his guests with a wine glass. According to Azealia, Crowe was flirting with her before realizing she wasn’t getting along with his party guests. Because of that, he elected to kick her out. “He calls me a nigger, and then grabs me, picks me up, he chokes me by the throat, picks me up, throws me out of the room and then spits on me,” she said.
A source close to Russell destroyed Banks by saying that her “behavior that night was abrasive, shocking, rude, offensive, abusive and erratic.” Comedian Jim Jefferies, who attended the party, supported Russell and said that he didn’t do anything wrong that night. Take a look at what he said below in light of the messy event.
This is 100 percent the truth. I was there, she was out of control . Russell did absolutely nothing wrong. https://t.co/9ySHgz5MGs

Azelia Banks is a complete liar. I was in the room. Russell Crowe is completely innocent. I would take a lie detector. — jim jefferies (@jimjefferies) October 18, 2016
