Azealia Banks Back At It With Verbal Assault
Azealia Banks swore at a photographer after leaving court on Tuesday (29.11.16).
The ‘212’ hitmaker appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court in relation to charges of misdemeanour assault and disorderly conduct after she allegedly bit a bouncer’s breast when she was kicked out of a Manhattan nightclub, Up&Down, on December 16 last year when staff failed to recognise her.
The outspoken star was on her best behaviour throughout her appearance, but then turned on a photographer who alerted her to the arrival of her car home.
According to the New York Post newspaper’s Page Six column, she shouted: “You’re a s**thead! You’re a f***ing a**hole!”
The paparazzo replied: “You’re welcome!”
In March, Azealia slapped photographers’ cameras as she left court.
The 25-year-old rapper had been due to appear in court on September 25 but failed to appear after missing a flight from Los Angeles, while she missed other appearances due to “health reasons”.
But a judge warned Azealia would be jailed if she failed to appear this time.
The controversial star has previously faced criticism for unleashing a racist tirade against former One Direction singer Zayn Malik.
She wrote on Twitter in March: “Keeping sucking this young rapunxel d**k u hairy curry scented b***h. Imma start calling you punjab you dirty b***h. You a d**k rider for real. Ride this d**k until the wheels fall off Punjab (sic).”
And in August she posted a collage of pictures of Zayn from his GQ magazine photoshoot on Instagram and wrote: “He legit looks like he used to be a girl. He gives me transman teas.”
However, in October, she apologised in an open letter and admitted she was “wrong” to last out.
