Something happened between Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe, but it seems there are two sides to this story. 

The 25-year-old rapper took to Facebook Sunday night to describe what allegedly transpired between her and the Oscar winner in a suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel a night earlier.

"To recap my night, I went to a [party] at Russell crowes suite, at which he called me a n----r, choked me, threw me out and spat at me," the since-deleted post read. "Last night was one of the hardest nights of sleep I've had in a long time."

"The men in the room allowed it to happen," she continued. "I feel terrible today." A few hours later, Banks added another comment. "I have receipts. Stay tuned."

However, as TMZ first reported, multiple witnesses claim Crowe invited around 10 people over for a dinner party, including rapper RZA, who cast Crowe in the film he wrote and directed, The Man with the Iron Fists. The filmmaker reportedly brought Banks along with him as his guest. 

According to the eyewitness accounts to TMZ, Banks laughed at Crowe's music and called him and another attendee "boring, white men." After another woman defended Crowe, Banks allegedly retorted with, "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" and allegedly added a few racial slurs. 

After reportedly taking her glass and cocking it back, as TMZ described, the actor allegedly grabbed her in a "bear hug" and carried her out before calling security guards to remove her from the property.
