Azealia Banks made headlines Monday after reportedly accusing Russell Crowe of calling her the N-word and physically choking her, but comedian Jim Jefferies says she is lying.
The confrontation allegedly occurred at a party Crowe held at his Bevery Hills hotel suite. A number of stars attended the get together, including Jefferies and Wu Tang’s the RZA.
The Australian comedian stood by the “Gladiator” star, calling Banks a complete liar:
According to a report from TMZ, Banks was attending as RZA’s “plus one.” Several witnesses reportedly backed Jefferies claims, adding that Banks was confrontational and aggressive – threatening Crowe and other guests: “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.”
Banks, 25, filed a battery report against Crowe, 52, the day following the incident.
