In the wake of her recent altercation with the Les Miserables star, the 212 rapper has realized she has some serious making up to do. Specifically, the New York native decided it was time to take responsibility for the nasty things she said about Zayn Malik — from FIVE months ago.
Better late than never, right? In a recent statement, the Ice Princess artist wrote:
Azealia Banks Doesn't Want To Press Charges Against Russell Crowe Anymore — But That Doesn't Mean She's Backing Down!
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.
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.

Azealia Banks DEMANDS An Apology From Russell Crowe For Trying To 'Frame' Her After Alleged Altercation!
As we've reported, the 25-year-old is claiming the Oscar-winning actor "called me a n****r, choked me, threw me out, and spat at me" during an intimate Beverly Hills Hotel dinner party.
For the record, every witness has discredited the rapper's telling of events that caused her to be kicked out of the hotel.
Apparently, Miz Banks believes the original TMZ report on the incident was leaked by Crowe himself — which definitely can't be proven on the record.
The controversial artist vented to E! News in her latest interview:

What a mess.
While the A-list celeb and all of the witness — including RZA, who invited Banks — discredit the rapper's account, the 25-year-old insists The Nice Guys actor choked her, spit on her, and called her the N-word while kicking her out of the party.
Talking to The Sun, the controversial artist claims:
The Alleged Violent Altercation Between Azealia Banks & Russell Crowe May've Been Filmed! Deets HERE!
As we previously reported, the 212 songstress and The Nice Guys actor supposedly got into it over the weekend at a Beverly Hills hotel which resulted in Miz Banks filing a police report. According to the 25-year-old, the A-lister "choked" her as he removed her from his hotel suite and into the hallway, where Crowe reportedly spit on her.
Now, it's believed that there is
