RZA has broken his silence ... condemning Azealia Banks for the confrontation with Russell Crowe ... claiming Russell was simply trying to prevent her from intentionally cutting another guest with a glass.
RZA came on "TMZ Live" and told us ... Russell did indeed spit at Azealia like she claims, but he didn't choke her ... nor did he hurl the n-word. He also said she was out of control and violent ... and hinted she was wasted.
RZA says he told cops the same story he told us. Azealia has filed a battery report with the BHPD.
Racing legend Mario Andretti says he's still a full pedal to the metal Donald Trump supporter -- even though he had dinner with President Obama at the White House Tuesday night.
Andretti appeared on "TMZ Live" and spilled his guts about the State Dinner to honor Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi ... a dinner that included huge stars like Jerry Seinfeld and Chance the Rapper.
So, we had to ask if the Obama event swayed his vote one way or the other -- and he made it very clear he's Team Trump all the way.
He did appear on "Celebrity Apprentice" after all ...
"Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le" depicts the singer's past relationship with Dre -- they have a 25-year-old son together -- and includes her allegations of domestic violence. Michel'le came on "TMZ Live" Wednesday and basically told her ex to bring it on in court.
She insists Dre's cease and desist letter is an empty threat because she has the truth on her side.
Check out the clip, and in case you hadn't heard it before ... yes, that's her real speaking voice.
