Azealia Banks launches crowdfunding campaign to sue Russell Crowe

Azealia Banks is turning to the people for her fight against Russell Crowe.

The rapper has launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise $100,000 to help her sue Crowe, who she claims bear-hugged her, spit at her and used a racist slur after she allegedly threatened to attack dinner party guests with a glass back in October 2016.

So far, Banks has raised $1,893.

“Russell Crowe spit on me at a party in 2016 and denied it, had a group of people gaslight me causing irreparable damage to my acting career and my reputation as well as loads of emotional damage,” Banks, 27, claims on the GoFundMe page.

She wrote that any money she receives from the lawsuit will go to charities that clean up the ocean.

“This isn’t about a big pay day [sic] for me, it’s about letting the world know that black women are victims to the same sort of disgusting violence men in Hollywood deal out to women,” she wrote, “and it’s important to send a message that black women also deserve justice and will get justice in these situations.”

On her Instagram story, however, Banks said she might “f–k the Russell Crowe thing and use those donations to give back to ny foster children in the city…I can cook a lot of meals for kids with whatever is in the fund.”

Page Six has reached out to reps for Banks and Crowe for comment.

Page Six confirmed in December 2016 that the Los Angeles County district attorney decided not to press charges against 54-year-old Crowe. Instead, the DA viewed the Oscar winner’s actions as an attempt to stop Banks from escalating the hotel room fight any further.

According to the DA’s office, Crowe’s actions were “justified to prevent the imminent violence threatened by Banks” and that his alleged spitting — on her “gloved hand” — was “incidental to preventing more serious threatened violence.”
