Azealia Banks 'investigated for criminal battery'

Azealia Banks is being investigated for criminal battery after allegedly assaulting a nightclub security guard.

TMZ has obtained video of Azealia and some friends at Break Room 86 in Los Angeles late last month, where they were asked to leave after being "unruly".

On their way out the rapper allegedly tried to pull the fire alarm and a security guard grabbed her.

After her pals pulled him off her she can be seen on the video jumping on him and hitting him repeatedly.

This comes just days after the controversial rapper cancelled her upcoming concert dates.

She tweeted: "I'm very busy at work. Your coins will be refunded and I will be back in January."

Meanwhile, in September Banks was caught on video branding a flight attendant a "f***ing f****t" and defended herself on Twitter, insisting she isn't homophobic and alleging she would have been treated differently if she was white.

She wrote: "I am bisexual. my brother is trans. My employees are all gay men. . Nothing else to say.

"Cause yall KNOW, that they would've politely handed a white woman her bags and a spritzer. #whatever (sic)"
