Look! Russell Crowe Threw Azealia Banks Out of His Hotel Room After She Threatened to Kill People

The rapper accused him of calling her the N-word and choking her.

Trouble follows Azealia Banks everywhere she goes, and on Saturday night that place was Russell Crowe's hotel room.
According to TMZ, Banks was a guest at a small party Crowe had in his suite at the Beverly Hills hotel (she tagged along with RZA) but had to be forcefully removed after she...wait for it...became belligerent and threatened to kill the other guests Tarantino-style.

It all started when Crowe invited a group of about ten people to listen to music in his suite. One of the invitees was RZA, and the Wu Tang member brought Banks as his guest. At some point during the soiree, Banks started laughing out loud at Crowe's music selection and then called him and one of his pals "boring white men."
After a female guest jumped to their defense and tried to put Banks in her place (editor's note: wrong move, diva), the femcee launched into a bizarre threat/rant about killing them all. "You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino s**t," she said, according to TMZ. She then dropped a few n-bombs. 
Crowe kept his cool right up until Banks raised a glass, as if she was going to make good on her threat, at which point the Gladiator actor restrained her in a bear hug and walked her out of the room, where hotel security took over and removed her from the premises. 
Banks, unsurprisingly, has a different version of events and says Crowe called her the n-word and choked her. At least four of the guests, including RZA, the one who brought her, are verifying Russell's version, but Banks claims to have proof:

Looks like this dispute is far from over.
