The hip-hop star has accused the actor of spitting on her, calling her derogatory names and carrying her out of his hotel suite in Beverly Hills following an altercation at a dinner party.

Banks demanded Crowe apologise and when he refused to even address the drama the 212 hitmaker filed a police report. However, multiple sources, including Azealia's former business partner, rap mogul and filmmaker RZA, insisted the Gladiator star did nothing wrong - and Banks' bad behaviour wrecked a pleasant get together.

Now, according to Access Hollywood, Crowe has turned to Holley, who has represented the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Mike Tyson, for legal aid.

Banks' stylist, Rayon Jones, claims Holley has already made contact with the hip-hop star.
