WATCH VIDEO: RZA admits Russell Crowe spat at Azealia Banks.....

A huge shift from his original statement about the 2016 confrontation...... Last year, Azealia Banks accused Russell Crowe of assaulting her. The singer said that Crowe spat on her, called her the n-word, choked her and threw her out of his hotel suite. RZA, who had accompanied Banks to the party, claimed she was lying, releasing a statement that denied her claims and called her an “obnoxious erratic individual”. A recent interview with the Wu-Tang producer on the Breakfast Club sees RZA tell a different story now though. “He spit at her. I saw that,” RZA admitted when probed about the incident. “Did you check him at that point? That’s a white dude spitting on a black woman,” host Charlamagne tha God asked. RZA then attempted to explain the spit wad wasn’t big, and landed near Banks rather than on her. He added that Crowe apologised to him – no word on an apology to Banks though. At the time, the actor claimed he removed the “212” actor from his party after she threatened to cut other guests’ throats. The case was dropped by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office in December. “UNTIL HE IS READY TO APOLOGIZE (TO ME) PUBLICLY, HE CAN GO BACK TO SUCKING RUSSELL CROWE’S DICK FOR INVITES TO HOLLYWOOD PARTIES,” she wrote in response on Instagram. “Nobody understands how badly I wanted to die the moment RZA LIED and told the world I deserved to be spat (at). People laughed at me and said I lied.” RZA is currently on the promo circuit for the latest Wu-Tang album and his film Love Beats Rhymes, starring Banks in her acting debut. What we should take with this, among the host of other experiences shared by women – and of utmost importance here, women of colour – is that we should believe women. Don't gaslight them. Out abusers. Show solidarity with survivors. Watch the full interview with RZA below.

Azealia Banks Apologizes To Nicki Minaj........

Someone better check the temperature in Hell, because Azealia Banks actually apologized to Nicki Minaj. She said she was sorry for trashing Nicki, and Ms. Minaj’s response left Azealia in tears! “Hey, I’m not sure if you will see this but I want to apologize for whatever catty shit I’ve said to and or about you in the past,” Azealia Banks, 26, said at the start of her lengthy apology letter to Nicki Minaj, 34. Azealia shared the text conversation with her fans on Sep. 29, posting her heartfelt letter to Nicki to her Instagram account. “I really do enjoy your artistry and think you’re so intelligent and clever. You have a really brilliant art mind and often times remind me a lot of myself.” “Now that I’m growing up I’m realizing a lot about what it means to be a strong woman and you’ve showed nothing but strength and perseverance from day one. You deserve that Grammy. You deserve a rich Russian billionaire to sweep you off your feet so you never have to consort with these dingy n**** in hip-hop again.” Azealia went on to say that her working with Nicki’s ex, Safaree Samuels, 36, was nothing personal – it was just strictly business. Ultimately, this heartfelt (and admittedly, uncharacteristically kind) response was ended with Azealia promising to “never say anything negative or catty things about you ever again.” “You’re very talented [and] very smart,” Nicki wrote in response. “Focus on what really matters from now on.” Though it was short and too the point, Ms. Minaj’s reply gave Azealia all the feels. “Not gonna lie, I cried a bit when she responded,” Ms. Banks captioned this IG post, adding the hashtag #femalerapforthemotherf*ckingwin Not gonna lie, I cried a bit when she responded. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ @nickiminaj #laguardiahighschool #femalerapforthemotherfuckingwin A post shared by Azealia Banks (@azealiabanks) on Sep 28, 2017 at 9:55pm PDT And with this, one of the fiercest beefs in rap’s recent history was ended. Azealia picked a fight with Nicki back in 2016, tearing into the “Super Bass” rapper’s looks in a now-deleted Facebook rant, according to Pedestrian TV. “McDonald’s sells a lot of burgers but no one is telling McDonald’s that they’re the pinnacle of cuisine and taste. This is true of you,” Azealia wrote. Damn. That was cruel — hilarious, but cruel. Now, this isn’t the first time Azealia has apologized to someone, as she said she was sorry to Zayn Malik, 24, after dragging the former One Direction singer in an ugly rant. Now, if Azealia can call a truce between her and Cardi B, 24, who Ms. Banks actually called the “poor man’s Nicki Minaj.” Sigh. One of Azealia’s feuds end and another begins. What do you think about Azealia’s apology to Nicki Minaj, HollywoodLifers? Are you shook? Are you stunned? Do you think these two have buried the hatchet for good?
