After making headlines for a number of problematic reasons, Azealia Banks has found herself in trouble once again. Azealia has reportedly been arrested in Manhattan following an incident that occurred this morning outside of a private party at club Up&Down, as reported by Page Six. The incident in question allegedly involved an altercation with the club’s bouncers, after the bouncers didn’t let her in to the invite-only party.
An anonymous source claims the incident occurred after Azealia was “screaming at the top of her lungs, cursing.” After she was let in the club via invitation from one of the club’s owners, Banks starting “[cursing] at the guards again, explaining who she was, that she’s on Rihanna’s album.” Reportedly, she proceeded to spit in the face of one of the female bouncers, before biting the woman “in the breast, almost breaking her shirt… as they took her out.”
From there, Azealia threatened to call the police, and later attempted to punch the same security guard in front of the police, asking, “Why are you arresting me?” TMZ also reports that the bouncer has sustained quite the injury from the incident, with “redness, swelling, serious pain and bruising to [her] right boob.”
