The rapper and singer have been playing the Future Music Festival throughout Australia. While they seemed to be getting along, their friendship quickly turned sour after Azealia suspected that the “R.I.P.” singer was trying to intimidate her.
“Ever since I arrived on this tour Rita’s been going out of her way to try and intimidate me,” tweeted Banks, who just released her new single “Yung Rapunxel.” “Taking all these candids of me when I wasn’t looking, then posting and deleting them like a weak bitch.”
Banks called Rita “thirsty” and accused her of climbing over the wall of her dancers’ dressing room to photograph her. Rita responded in a text message, which Azealia posted on Instagram.
“At the end of the day I don’t know who the fuk 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 ass at the motherfuckin concert,”
Banks shot back with her own stinging remarks:
“She’s been TRYING IT on this tour man…..She’s mad she’s Rihanna’s understudy..”
Could this beef have started over a pair of jelly shoes?
Earlier in the day, Rita Ora had posted a photo of a pair of blue jellies with the caption, “Did u ever think you’d see these again? I DID! I’m bringin them back!”, to which Azealia responded via Twitter:
I can't with these girls.
@RitaOra try again.
@RitaOra I already did the jellies last year girl.
It's hard to believe that things can get so ugly over something so petty. Azealia is no stranger to beef. She has faced off with numerous artists in the past including Iggy Azalea, Kreayshawn, Angel Haze, T.I., Lil’ Kim, and “Harlem Shake” hitmaker Baauer. Pretty soon, she is going to run out of people to work with in this industry.
