Azealia Banks has leveled some serious claims at Russell Crowe following an alleged fight in his hotel room in Beverly Hills, California last weekend, and now it appears her working relationship with RZA might be on the rocks as well. We already knew that Banks was in the process of signing with RZA after she posted about their "excellent working chemistry" on Facebook. But it seems that the deal may not happen as a result of what took place between Banks and Crowe. According to a report from TMZ, Banks told RZA's rep that their record deal was off on Tuesday because she felt betrayed by his reaction to the spat with Crowe.
Banks was at Crowe's hotel suite in the first place as a guest of RZA, but the Wu-Tang rapper hasn't come out publicly to defend her. Sources tell TMZ that's because he thinks she was in the wrong. Although she claims Crowe assaulted her and called her the n-word, others say that she was the aggressor, mocking one of Crowe's party guests and threatening to throw a drinking glass. Both parties are awaiting the release of hotel security camera footage that they claim will back up their sides of the story.
Regardless of the status of her deal with RZA, it looks like Banks is prepared to move forward with releasing new music. In a lengthy Instagram post she published late Tuesday night, Banks promised that this would be "the last time I will be in the news for anything negative" and said that she would be releasing a "So Ghetto" freestyle on Wednesday.
