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.

On Thursday, the musician spoke with Access Hollywood about the alleged assault, and completely breaks down as she describes her horrific night.

Azealia Banks isn't backing down, but that doesn't mean she wants the police involved!
As you surely know, the 212 rapper has accused Russell Crowe of calling her a racial slur and choking her during an altercation at the Les Miserables star's Beverly Hills hotel room. However, countless witnesses have since discredited the New York native's account of what caused her to be kicked out of Crowe's suite.

So it's no wonder Miz Banks isn't looking to press charges against the A-lister anymore. During a candid chat with Us Weekly, Azealia explained:
This is going to be hard for Azealia Banks to defend.
On Thursday, RZA took to TMZ to speak out against Banks' claims against Russell Crowe following their altercation at a New York City hotel earlier this week. The mogul's vigorous defense of Crowe comes on the heels of Azealia filing battery charges.

Per RZA's account, the artist was completely "zoned out" the entire evening after consuming excessive amounts of alcohol. The 47-year-old went on to describe A.B.'s erratic, scary, and unprovoked behavior which ultimately forced Russell to kick her out of the party.
It's also important to note that the father vehemently denies Crowe physically attacking Azealia or calling her the N-word. The only thing RZA cops to is that Russell did in fact spit on Banks as he escorted her out of the hotel room.
Not only is the businessman "embarrassed" by the entire incident, but he also decided take back a record deal he had previously offered the 25-year-old. While RZA isn't completely done with the artist, he's definitely taking a step back.
