2018 is around the corner and it’s time to start writing out those New Years resolutions. For Azealia Banks, the list includes taking legal action against TV personality Wendy Williams.
During a recent live broadcast of her BET show, Williams suggested Banks was a prostitute. The rapper shared a post on Christmas Day announcing her decision to file a lawsuit against Williams come 2018. The post has since been deleted.
According to Billboard, the post included a meme of Williams with a caption addressed to Banks’ fan base. “The last five years taught me when you’re an Azealia Banks stan, you can make it thru anything,” the text on the meme said. “TOUGH AS STEEL…Wendy is getting sued top of 2018,” Banks wrote in the caption below.
During the “Hot Topics” portion of her show, Williams suggested Banks got her money from being a prostitute—a statement Banks claimed she later cried about. “Now we understand how she gets her money,” Williams said. “She’s got no kids and she’s 26, with a vaginal rejuvenation? Wow. She works hard for her money.”
This is the second lawsuit Banks has threatened this month. After a couple weeks of online back and forth between her and rapper Remy Ma, Banks decided one of Ma’s responses could have legal ramifications. “Just realizing that I can sue Remy Ma for trying to paint me in a false light,” Banks wrote in an Instagram story. “Those pictures were not of my vagina yet she showed them to the world trying to say it was. I responded to something she said publicly and her response was making a private conversation between the two of us public.” The photos in question were screenshots of supposed texts between the two rappers, posted by Ma, that included explicit photos of Banks.
It’s unclear if any lawsuit against Remy Ma has been filed, or what Banks plans on suing Williams for come 2018. Based on Williams’ statements, the rapper could be planning to sue for defamation. Thanks to her comments, Williams has joined a long list of people who have beef with the “212” rapper, including Cardi B, Jess Hilarious, RZA, and more.
