Azealia Banks Lashes Out at Rita Ora, Calls Her ‘Rihanna’s Understudy’
Azealia Banks recently got into a Twitter riff with pop siren Rita Ora. Both artists were once friends but now their relationship has gone sour after performing on the same bill at the Future Music Festival in Australia.
Apparently, the Harlem native was upset that Ora was talking to one of her male dancers. She unleashed a smattering of unflattering tweets about the Roc Nation artist.
“Ever since I arrived on this tour Rita’s been going out of her way to try and intimidate me,” Banks wrote on her timeline. “Taking all these candids of me when I wasn’t looking, then posting and deleting them like a weak bitch.”
Banks also described Ora as being “thirsty” and then tweeted this biting remark: “She’s mad she’s Rihanna‘s understudy.” Ouch!
That made Ora send this heated text message to the ‘212’ rapper, which Banks posted on Twitter and Instagram for all to see:
“At the end of the day I don’t know who the f– u think you are secondly u dont know me I’ve done nothin but try b nice to u 3rd ur dancers were talkn to me further more ill see ur a– at the motherf—in concert.”
This isn’t the first time Banks has angered a few people on Twitter. In the past, she has battled numerous artists on the social media networking service including Baauer, Jim Jones, Iggy Azalea, T.I. and Angel Haze.
It’s safe to say that Azealia Banks holds her tongue for no one.
