Azealia Banks Attacks Photographers While Leaving Assault Hearing

Azealia Banks has an unquestionably volatile personality, and after breaking her promise to stay off Twitter and releasing a new project called Slay-Z, the polarizing artist has found herself in the middle of controversy yet again.

Banks attended court earlier today to answer to charges of misdemeanor assault, harassment, and disorderly conduct for punching and biting the breast of a female security guard who was escorting her out of Up&Down, a nightclub in New York City.

Photographers claim that she was smiling as she left the courthouse, but quickly flipped the switch on them. Daily Mail’s Michael Graae says Azealia went to hit him but struck his camera instead. He was, however, still able to capture plenty of images during the encounter.
