Azealia Banks Objects to Eviction Claim

On Friday (July 5), Banks was the topic of discussion after X, formerly known as Twitter, blog thepoptingz reported that the Harlem, N.Y. rapper had been put out of her rental home in Miami. Banks bucked back at the report, which included court documents.

“Umm this is a lie,” she posted on her Instagram Story. “Lmao these miami landlords be deesssepperaaaate. I’ve already moved CXQ HQ to 7995 SW 154th Terrace Palmetto Bay, FL, 33157.”

She continued, “Lmao why do these tostones grease bathing white wannabes in Miami really think I’m gonna play with them? Pop Tingz better correct that sh*t. You can search the public record…There is no eviction ordered by any court. The landlord is a drunk with H Pylori who has been menacing me the entire time I lived there. Sis had her husband come in to the house under some guise of fixing broken outlets.”

Azealia Banks Faces Eviction Suit

According to the court records obtained by AllHipHop, Isis Claro filed a motion for a final judgment of possession in a complaint against Azealia Banks on Tuesday (July 2).

“This eviction was filed because Tenant owes Plaintiff’s past due rent,” Claro’s motion read. “Defendant filed an Answer thereby preventing a clerk’s default; however, Defendant failed to deposit rent into the Court Registry. Florida Statutes specifically state that in an action by the landlord for possession of a dwelling unit, if the tenant interposes any defense other than payment, including but not limited to the defense of a defective 3-day notice, the tenant shall pay into the registry of the court the accrued rent as alleged in the complaint.”

The motion continues, “Failure of the tenant to pay the rent into the registry of the court or to file a motion to determine the amount of rent to be paid into the registry within 5 days … after the date of service of process constitutes an absolute waiver of the tenant’s defenses other than payment. And the landlord is entitled to an immediate default judgment for the removal of the tenant.”
