Rapper Crowdfunding To Sue Actor

Tabloid news:

Rapper Azealea Banks wants you to donate to her crowdfunding page so she can sue actor Russell Crowe.

Although not rising to a MeToo incident, she claims that Mr. Crowe assaulted her at a party in 2016.

And since “I don’t have $100,000 dollars to play with right now,” she wants you to help pay her legal fees.

If she wins a big judgment, rest assured that “Whatever money comes of this will be donated to ocean clean up charities.”

It should be noted that the Los Angeles County District Attorney decided to dismiss her case against  Crowe. “Witnesses state that prior to being ejected from the hotel room by Crowe, Banks repeatedly used a racial epithet, was verbally aggressive to party attendees and threatened to break a glass to cut the throat of a female guest and/or Crowe.”

So far, she has raised $993 of her $100,000 target.
