According to reports, the L.A. County D.A.’s Office has no intent in pursuing Banks’ case against the award-winning Hollywood veteran.
The witnesses also backed up what TMZ first reported … that Azealia picked up a glass and threatened to use it to cut the throat of a guest. Azealia filed a police report after the incident claiming Russell choked her, called her the n-word and spit on her as he removed her from the suite. The D.A. concluded that Russell physically tossing her was “justified to prevent the imminent violence threatened by Banks.” As for the spitting … the D.A. says it was “incidental to preventing more serious threatened violence.” (TMZ)
Back in October, Azealia initially talked about falling back on dragging Crowe to court.
Though she wants others to hear her story, Banks is no longer planning on pressing charges against Crowe. “Realistically, to be honest, I really don’t want to. Because I just don’t want this in the media. I want my music out. I just want to f–king put my music out,” the controversial recording artist explains. “I just want my music to shine. I don’t want to be dealing with another episode, another thing, another whatever.” (Us Weekly)
A day prior, rap veteran RZA issued a statement on what allegedly went down between Banks and Crowe.
In a new interview, Banks recalled her horrific experience and how she became a victim at Crowe’s recent Los Angeles hotel party.
Now Azealia, 25, has told The Sun of 52-year-old Aussie Russell: “I think he’s a racist, misogynist pig. “This is a stain on me. My femininity feels stained. I feel stained as a woman, I feel mishandled, I feel mistreated, I feel dirty. I feel very f***ing low.” Azealia said: “Russell had moonshine on the table, and then Russell calls for whisky, so then they just start mixing them up. (The Sun)
