Azealia Banks has claimed Russell Crowe assaulted her and called her the n-word before tossing the Harlem rapper from a party at his place. But her sensational account has been dismissed outright by guests reportedly at the scene.

In a Facebook post shared on the weekend, Banks alleged the Oscar-winning Australian actor verbally and physically assaulted her before forcibly ejecting her from a small gathering at his suite.

The alleged attack left her feeling like she "wanted to die" and that "the men in the room let it happen".

"Last night was one of the hardest nights of sleep I've had in a long time," she wrote. "'The men in the room allowed it to happen. I feel terrible today."

A totally different version of events has been reported by TMZ, however, which implies Banks was the one throwing insults and was bounced due to her erratic behavior.

According to TMZ, the hip-hop artist arrived as the "plus one" for the Wu-Tang Clan rapper, filmmaker and label honcho RZA.
TMZ quotes eyewitnesses who claim Banks ridiculed Crowe and his guests before threatening them and turning the air blue.

In a line that sounds as though it came straight from an action film, Banks was paraphrased: "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---."

Crowe is said to have wrapped her up in a bear hug and removed her from the premises. He is reported to have then called hotel security guards who removed the Harlem artist from the grounds.

Crowe has not responded to the allegations via social media and a spokesperson declined to comment. Banks' post has now been deleted.

What's clear is only a handful of people know what really went down at the party. And both parties have a history of letting their tempers run wild. Banks' social media tirades are as fierce as they are frequent, and she found her Twitter account suspended earlier this year after a racist rant against Zayn Malik and an attack on teenage Disney star Skai Jackson. She recently announced a self-imposed social media ban, but that ban is now clearly lifted.

Crowe, who started a pop career under the amusing stage name Russ le Roq and had stints with rock bands 30 Odd Foot of Grunts and The Ordinary Fear of God, was famously snubbed for an Oscar when, after his acceptance speech was cut short at the 2002 BAFTA Awards (where his performance in A Beautiful Mind won him the best male actor award), he reportedly assaulted TV executive Malcolm Gerrie.
