(AllHipHop News) Besides releasing a lengthy statement, RZA went on TMZ Live to further address the conflict between Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe that took place at a Beverly Hills hotel.
RZA admitted Crowe spit at Banks, but the Wu-Tang Clan member also claimed AB was the violent person in the confrontation.
“I wouldn’t say Russell got angry,” stated RZA. “She was calling Russell all kind of names.”
He added, “She attacked like physically. Verbal abuse is one thing. She physically attacked. To me, she was attacking Russell. He deflected, grabbed her, and took her out [of the room].”
According to RZA, Crowe picked up Banks and carried her out of the suite but he never choked her like the “212” performer suggested.
Overnight, Azealia Banks returned to Facebook with a message directed at her “haters.”
“I need to take full advantage of the hatred people have for me. Regardless of whether or not I am liked, I’m ALWAYS being written about/looked at,” wrote Banks. “There needs to be more kunty snaps of me to quench my haters [sic] thirst.”
