Azealia Banks Trashes Claims She Was Evicted From Florida Home: “Landlord Is A Drunk”

Azealia Banks denied claims she was evicted from her Florida home in an Instagram post on Friday (July 5). After the news started circulating on social media, Banks fired back, “Umm this is a lie. Lmao these miami landlords be deesssepperaaaate. I’ve already moved CXQ HQ to 7995 SW 154th Terrace Palmetto Bay, FL, 33157.

“Lmao why do these tostones grease bathing white wannabes in Miami really think I’m gonna play with them? Pop Tingz better correct that s###. 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.”

Banks’ account contradicts what the paperwork says. According to court documents obtained by AllHipHop, Isis Claro asked a Florida court for a final judgment of possession in a complaint against Banks for failure to pay rent 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 continued, “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.”
