Russell Crowe‘s intimate party definitely took a turn!
On Saturday, the actor hosted around ten people, including rapper Azealia Banks who arrived as RZA‘s guest, in his Beverly Hills hotel room for dinner and music.
And according to the controversial 25-year-old, the A-lister allegedly assaulted her in a scary confrontation. She described in a since-deleted Facebook post on Sunday:
“To recap my night, I went to a party at Russell crowe’s (sic) suite, at which he called me a n****r, choked me, threw me out and spat at me. Last night was one of the hardest nights of sleep I’ve had in a long time. The men in the room allowed it to happen. I feel terrible today.”
While the post is now gone, Azealia later added:
According to TMZ, a very different series of events went down at The Nice Guys star’s suite.
Multiple witnesses say Russell threw the 212 songstress out after she threatened to cut his guests with broken glass. Reportedly, they say the drama went down after she laughed at the star’s music selection and called him and one other attendee “boring white men.”
After one woman came to the 52-year-old’s defense, the eyewitnesses allege she went off on him, throwing out racial slurs and saying:
“You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino sh*t.”
The dad of two then grabbed Azealia in a “bear hug” after she reached for her glass and cocked it back, and he carried her out of the room for security guards to take her off the grounds.
Clearly there are two sides to this story, but TMZ also reports at least four eyewitnesses gave police their statements for the investigation.
So far, Russell has yet to make any public statement in regards to the alleged incident. We’ll keep you updated!
