Azealia Banks reportedly swore at a photographer as she left court yesterday (November 29).
The rapper was appearing in court in Manhattan to face charges of misdemeanour assault, attempted assault and disorderly conduct. She is accused of biting a nightclub bouncer on the breast and spitting at her during an incident in New York City last year (2015).
According to Page Six, Banks swore at a paparazzo outside the courtroom after he informed the rapper that her car had arrived.
“You’re a shithead! You’re a fucking asshole!” Bank is quoted as saying. “You’re welcome,” the snapper apparently replied.
Earlier this month (November) Banks celebrated Donald Trump’s US election victory on Facebook, despite previously disowning the Republican candidate. She said she felt “fucking proud as fuck” after it emerged he had beaten Hillary Clinton to the presidency.
Meanwhile, Banks will no longer be signing to RZA‘s label following her alleged altercation with actor Russell Crowe at a hotel party in Los Angeles in October.
Banks reportedly filed a battery report against the actor after accusing him of assaulting her and uttering racial slurs. Banks is believed to have gone to the police after Crowe refused to apologise for what had allegedly happened.
She has since told The Sun that she considers the 52-year-old to be a “a racist, misogynist pig” after the alleged incident. Crowe’s representatives have denied any wrongdoing on the actor’s part since the incident came to light.
