Azealia Banks: “I Was Assaulted By Coldplay’s Manager”

Published: Thursday 30th Nov 2017 by David

Azealia Banks surprised fans a few years ago when she revealed that she was once involved in a wild love affair with a married man in this interview.

This week the insanely talented performer has spilled more details on what may be the same relationship via Instagram and revealed that her lover (who was much older than she was) assaulted her hours before she shot the visual for her single ‘1991.’

Why this may be of interest to Coldplay fans?

Find out below…

When she was 18 years old and still signed with XL recordings she was introduced to a man named Dave who managed coldplay, interpol, santigold and my chemical romance. He was at the time a very handsome, very charming man who she admired intensely. He was 43, rich , white and very fatherly to her. Dating him made her feel like Naomi Campbell! He was married at the time but told her he was separated- something She didn’t care about as She was so happy to have him in her life. Her father died when She was three years old and She was raised by a single mother and her older sister. This was the first time she’d ever been in love. When she is dropped from XL recordings, he breaks up with her and abruptly stops paying the rent on the apartment he had been renting for her . She haphazardly moves out of her apartment on dyckman street and heads to Montreal where She spends a lonely, depressed summer. Upon the success of 212 , Dave reappears in her life. She’s happy to have him back as she considers him her Dad and felt close to him like family. On the night before the 1991 video, the couple get into a heated arguement about $2,000 she’d borrowed from him two weeks earlier. She grabs hold of his fancy espresso machine and pushes it on the floor, which prompts him to put her in a choking headlock. The fight gets nasty, with her throwing rocks through glass windows and him dragging her by her hair and throwing her into a freezing cold shower. During the headlock she cuts the inside of her lip on her teeth and begins to spit blood. Her friend comes to pick her up and take her home where she cries for hours and doesn’t sleep a wink. Her world was shattered. She had plans to marry this man. She imagined the entire rest of her life with him and could never have seen this coming. She gets to set the next morning tired , confused and emotionally drained . Her hairstylist Brianna meets her with a beaming smile and is excited to tell her about all of the fly outfits the stylist pulled. She turns to Brianna and says “Dave hit me last night” … Brianna gasps… the new rising star begins to cry , yet somehow is able to hold it together enough to get her make-up done. #1991#BWET

    That is not the correct Dave Holmes you guys posted a picture of. That Dave Holmes is an openly gay writer and host who does not manage ColdPlay

    I actually always believe the victims because i also was a victim for 3 years until I set my abuser up!!

    • Caleb December 2, 2017

      How can you ALWAYS believe victims as if no one has ever lied before? I mean would you have believed those white h*** back in the day who falsely accused the Scotsboro Boys? People do lie sometimes.
