Russell Crowe Faces NO Charges For The Alleged Altercation With Azealia Banks!

It's a win for Russell Crowe.

Remember when Azealia Banks accused Russell Crowe of calling her a racial slur and choking her during an altercation at his Beverly Hills hotel?

Just in case you don't, the 212 rapper alleged the A-lister assaulted her in a scary confrontation in October, although witnesses say Crowe threw her out of the room after she threatened to cut guests with broken glass.

It turns out, the D.A. has decided to drop the singer's case on Wednesday, and Russell will not be charged for bear hugging her in order to get her out of the suite.

According to TMZ, the Los Angeles District Attorney's office says his actions were "justified to prevent the imminent violence threatened by Banks" and the 52-year-old's attempt to spit at her was "incidental to preventing more serious threatened violence."

Eyewitnesses also backed up the star's account of her being verbally aggressive.

Azealia has yet to respond to the news, but we can't imagine she'll be happy about it.
