Azealia Banks freaked the fuck out on a Delta flight from New York to LAX this morning, and the passenger sitting near her managed to capture a good deal of the meltdown on camera. That passenger described the scenario to TMZ:
when the Delta flight landed just before 1 AM Tuesday, Azealia made a beeline for the front door. She had been sitting in seat 6A but a French couple in the 3rd row was blocking her exit as they pulled their luggage from the overhead bin.
The eyewitness says Azealia tried to squeeze by the couple when the French man put his hand out. Azealia, we’re told, went nuts. The eyewitness says she spit in the man’s face, punched him in the face and clawed at his shirt.
At that point we’re told the flight attendant grabbed Azeala’s bag and told her to calm down. She lost her balance, fell to the seat, stood up and then a tug-of-war over the luggage ensued. This is where the video begins.
Azealia demands to take her bag and leave, and eventually calls the flight attendant a “f***ing f***ot” — a homophobic slur.
We’re told the co-pilot came out and told Azealia the police were called. She then ran off the plane, dropping her cell phone.
Police caught up with Azealia at baggage claim and spoke with witnesses as well, but the French couple decided not to press charges because they were here on holiday and didn’t want the hassle.
It’s been a whopping month and a half since Banks’ most recent beef with K. Michelle, and who knows whether or not this “eyewitness account” is the full story. Watch the footage below.
