Azealia Banks revealed on her Instagram story this weekend that she was drugged and raped. In a now deleted post, Banks can be heard sobbing and partially blaming herself for what happened.
“I just feel so dirty and stupid right now, you know? We were just hanging out and one thing led to another,” she said. “I just feel really dumb, because it was partially my fault.”
Throughout the series of voice clips Banks is breaking down, saying she doesn’t think she can do music right now and that she wanted to delete all of her accounts.
“I feel so broken down right now and I was just rebuilding myself as an artist,” she said as she cried.
The Harlem native recently released her new single, “Anna Wintour,” and was gearing up to release her Fantasea II album.
She seemed to be in better spirits today when she took to her Instagram to update her fans.
“It takes a lot to take this elephant down!” she posted.
