A judge has ordered an arrest warrant for the rapper after Banks missed a court date scheduled for Monday.
An incident where Azealia Banks bit a woman in New York City has her back in the spotlight after a judge issued a warrant for her arrest when the rapper failed to appear for her Monday court date.
Reports show that the 25-year-old music artist allegedly bit a woman outside a nightclub back in 2015. Her court date for the incident was scheduled for Monday, March 6 but she was a no show.
Her attorney, John Vafa said in a statement to Pitchfolk that “Azealia Banks mistakenly believed she had a court appearance on March 8 instead of March 6.”
“She was in France for Fashion week due to meetings and other social gatherings and was not able to arrange her flight in time to appear today. She apologizes and will apologize in person to the Court for missing her scheduled hearing,” the statement read.
