Banks has filed a police report, claiming she was "spat on, choked, thrown out of a room at the party". "Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious. There was nothing funny about her behavior. I felt a little embarrassed because she was my guest. Azealia threaten (sic) to cut a girl in the face with a glass, then actually grabs a glass and physically attacks for no logical reason. Russell blocked the attack and expelled her from the suite. "Seeing is believing and I saw her behave as an obnoxious erratic individual and in the circles I frequent this was unprecedented. I was totally puzzled by her and thought maybe meds or booze or something had her zoned out. Nevertheless I made sure she got home safe," the music producer wrote on Facebook.

Banks, 25, has responded to RZA saying he is trying to "gaslight" her. The singer also took to her Facebook page to reply to the allegations made by RZA. "RZA has clearly been given no legal advice and went to out his feelings to try and gaslight me. Whatever pieces are left of his brain after years and years of smoking dust stupidly allowed him to ramble himself into incriminating his friend, and completely debunking their entire made up theory. "You mean to tell me, that a 300lb man needed to use ALL OF THAT FORCE, to remove an "erratic" guest from a party ?" she wrote.
