Shocking: Azealia Banks Alleges Physical Abuse at the Hands of Actor Russell Crowe

Published: Sunday 16th Oct 2016 by Rashad

‘ATM Jam’ maestra Azealia Banks has dispensed her fair share of verbal attacks over the years, but if her Facebook rants lifted to the social media outlet just moments ago is any indication, it appears someone has physically turned the tide on her.

“Someone,” in this case, would be Academy Award winner Russell Crowe. According to Banks, the actor not only physically accosted her, but also spat at her and delivered an onslaught of racial slurs.

Shocking rant inside:


Fans of Crowe are aware this isn’t the first time accusations of racism have been hurled at him.  Read more on that here.

    Jesus take the wheel

    • Ughhhh October 16, 2016

      I know this sounds bad but I hope it’s true. Only because this girl lives for moments and I hoping she has moved past her “episodes” and this is just an incident that she had no control over… hopefully.

        are you an idiot?? what he did to her was a hate crime how could you wish that on someone??

      • October 16, 2016

        are you insane?

    • What you talkin bout Willis October 16, 2016

      Jesus take the wheel… And park the car.

    Nobody deserves to be treated that way, but before making assumptions, I’d like to hear his side of the story. She’s way too unpredictable for one to believe all of her claims. For all we know, she could have went in there acting belligerent and making a scene.

    • Danzou October 16, 2016

      This needs to stop. Stop automatically believing a woman was being unruly. No matter how unruly she was, unless she put her hands on him, she didn’t deserve this despite her messiness.

      • Bey ❤️ October 16, 2016

        Thank you!!! You say we “don’t know what happened” but create a theory for yourself just so you don’t have to examine how you perceive the aggressor.

      • Hillary October 16, 2016

        @Danzou @Bey @MelaninGod Woah. First of all, don’t tell me I need to “stop believing” the woman was being unruly, because I made one comment about one particular case. Have you seen me accusing other women of lying about abuse? I think not. And unless you can provide receipts of me “believing a woman was being unruly” you can both sit down. Second, I said that I’d like to hear his side of the story before believing her. Not that I believed Russell Crowe from the jump, and I like her music more than any of his films, so I have no reason to “create a theory for myself” to support him. Three, there is multiple incidents that you can both go back and see for yourself where your girl was screaming racial slurs at people and trying to fight people, so stop. You really expect me to believe her off the bat, because she’s working on her brand new opportunities? No, I don’t. She did that before when she said she was moving in a new musical direction and making change, working with Dr. Luke, etc. Then sister had another melt down and was back to calling people racial slurs, calling gays f*$#@%, and criticizing people for bleaching, only to turn around and endorse a skin bleaching product. It should’t be hard for any of you to understand why a person would be hesitant to immediately assume she’s embellishing events. And you both sound ignorant telling me I’m believing a woman was acting unruly when your stance clearly implies to believe the woman from the start, which is just as biased. My comment implied that both stories need to be heard, but you probably didn’t see that since you were so quick to press keys and try to make me come off as a misogynist when I’m the opposite. Y’all need to get out of your feelings for this chick. I did not once insult her artistry or her as a person, but instead pointed out the obvious, that she doesn’t exactly have a stable character compared to her peers. There was no need to come for me and cry over spilt milk because I chose to be neutral.

      • Danzou October 16, 2016

        Hillary I’m not gon lie, I didn’t really read any of that.

      • FAF October 16, 2016

        I believe it. But she acts like white men are gods she’s been talking about white c*** for years I’m
        Glad she sees they don’t give a f*** about her either

      • Hillary October 16, 2016

        Not surprised, Boo. You don’t seem like the type that does a lot of reading.

    • Melanin God October 16, 2016

      My girl has been laying low and working on her brand opportunities have been poppin up for her she ain’t tryna do anything to f*** that up she ain’t trying to mess up her career anymore.

      • The Legend Called Missy Elliott October 17, 2016

        Did, your girl was the problem. Confirmed problem. She has acted a fool one too many times for me to automatically believe anything she says.

  3. Britney Stan October 16, 2016

    She’ll say and do anything for attention

    • Bey ❤️ October 16, 2016

      So she woke up this morning and made this up?

      • OMG Logic!!! October 16, 2016


    • Danzou October 16, 2016

      So will your fave.

  4. Kwinzy October 16, 2016

    Russell has a history of this. AB is also in L.A. making business rounds so this is believable whether or not you like who it’s coming from.

    • Bey ❤️ October 16, 2016

      Bingo. And I want to know who the cowards in the room who said nothing were.

      • Danzou October 16, 2016

        @bey I’m willing to bet my life that they weren’t black men.

  5. chester October 16, 2016

    What was she doing in his suite? Just curious.

    • Bey ❤️ October 16, 2016

      He threw a party.

  6. The A Team October 16, 2016

    she hasnt got enough credibility to make this believable

    • Danzou October 16, 2016

      To what extent? Say what you want but she’s never been the type to lie. She’s just messy but she’s not a liar.

  7. Coolness October 16, 2016

    Yeah, this isn’t the first time Russell has been accused of racism but I never thought I’d see his name and Azealia’s in the same sentence. She’s greatly disappointed me in the last year but no one should be subjected to such disgusting treatment. Spitting is like the lowest and most disrespectful thing you can do to a person. I am shook tbh.

  8. Rea October 16, 2016

    I remember her calling another black woman a “cotton picking n-word” and “tar baby”. I am so sick of hearing about this colorstruck confused b****. This chick cries wolf so much that everything for which comes out of her much is a damn fable. She brags about being a cúm bucket to old white men. He probably rejected her and she got mad.

    • Danzou October 16, 2016

      All I hear is another excuse to ignore the severity of the situation. If this was a white woman making these claims the f****** world would stop.

    • Kwinzy October 16, 2016

      Girl bye. Stop tryna overshadow the black woman’s plight. You’re no different than All Lives Matter. Many in our community have brought each other down but at least Azealia apologised and owns it. That still doesn’t excuse Russell for what he allegedly did.

      • Rea October 16, 2016

        GIRL BYE! You are in here defending this DEVIL! Bare in the mind this is same BLACK WOMAN that has called other black women VERY disparaging s***! Called other black women tar babys, cotton pickers and racial slurs. She has said WORSE than most rappers that y’all boycott. She is NOT any better and I really wish y’all would stop giving this chick a pass! If anyone else did this, y’all would be in here defending her!

    • kwinzy October 16, 2016

      Somebody better get this janitor “Rea” bish to clean up the mess in the lobby. Why the f*ck is she in my board room?

      There are far more cancerous black celebs out there with more impact who REMAIN unapologetic about their f*ckery. For example, (Danzou’s gonna love this one ;), Nicki Minaj has a slew of songs were she makes fun of black women’s nappy hair and even refers to them as Bubbles, MJ’s pet chimpanzee. These lyrics earned her recognition and platinum plagues yet you’re up here calling Azealia Banks the devil for her Twitter hate which she APOLOGIZED for? Why is one acceptable while the other isn’t? FOH before you get molly wooped with your own mop.

      • Rea October 16, 2016

        Bítch, you’re replying under MY comment. This story isn’t Icky Garbaj, this is about Azealia’s lying àss! I’ve dragged Ms. Garbaj for her disgusting lyrics in HER post. This flip flopping bítch Azealia will “apologize” and will be right back to talking shít about you tomorrow. FOH

      • Danzou October 16, 2016

        You know what I was JUST about to agree with yo lil punk ass, and I still halfway do, until you shaded nicki. ANYWAYS, yeah h** you can leave the thread, it’s time to run trash before you clock out.

    • kwinzy October 16, 2016

      Again, still doesn’t excuse what Russell allegedly did. If it was any other black woman you’d support it. Stop using Azealia’s past to silence her. It’s not acceptable, period. I may be more forgiving than you but I’ll never cloud my judgement.


      TBH the only thing we disagree on is Nicki. #Facts

      • Danzou October 16, 2016

        Yeah I know and every time you shade her I’ll be here get yo nasty ass but other than that I got you.

  9. BOOBIE October 16, 2016

    Can’t stand a lick of this girl but I believe her 100%

  10. Ropeburn October 16, 2016

    She is a known instigator who is more famous for her nasty attitude and Twitter racism (see Zayn incident) than for her music. I have every reason to suspect this is just another cry for attention from a failed musician. Also, just how does an obscure, relatively unknown hussy like her get invited to Russel Crowe’s suite? I’m like Whitney Houston on this one: SHOW ME THE RECEIPTS!!!

  11. No Really October 16, 2016

    Hmmmmm…. Sorry but she has cried wolf and all out craziness so many times that I will need more evidence to believe her. I know that Russell has been an huge a**hole in the past but let’s see how this plays out.

  12. Sherrele October 16, 2016

    Is she crying wolf! I don’t know if to believe her or not! If it’s true. Then he is wrong but like I said Idk if to believe her.

  13. October 16, 2016

    Azealia have done some questionable things, where as she earn some of the negative back lash she have gotten. but if what she is saying about crowe is true, i wont support that and he deserve to get check on that sh!t, i have earn about him in the past of doing something like this, so it isn’t far fetch to believe what Azealia is saying about him.

  14. OMG Logic!!! October 16, 2016

    Sorry girl. You burned your bridges long ago and many times over. Few people believe you and fewer care.

    • Bey ❤️ October 17, 2016

      Speak for yourself! Many people care and Crowe will pay once people are reminded of what he did to the New Zealand Warriors.

      • Janet1814 October 17, 2016

        My mum used to go to school with him and said the whole family were a bunch of racist hooligans.

  15. chileplease October 16, 2016

    You can read the full story on TMZ. I’m telling ya’ll this girl isn’t right in the head at all. Needs to be in a mental institution.

    • The Legend Called Missy Elliott October 17, 2016

      I was wondering when TGJ was going to update this f****** story. B**** has burn me too many times to believe her.

  16. FC/JC October 17, 2016

    Sorry this happened to you AB, Nobody deserves that.

  17. e Nowqd Redv dibut it ash trjoan ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremixi October 18, 2016
