Azealia Banks Accuses Former Manager Of Faking Romantic Interest In Her To Steal Her Money
Azealia Banks says her former manager, Prospect Park CEO Jeff Kwatinetz, feigned being interested in a romantic relationship with her in order to swindle her out of money. Banks is counter-suing Kwatinetz for breach of contract and fraud as Kwatinetz is suing her for extortion.
“[Kwatinetz] attempted to control and manipulate Banks so he could eventually steal from her, by charming the 23-year-old from Harlem and attempting to convince her that he loved her,” Banks’ court filing states, according to Rolling Stone. “He would repeatedly tell her in e-mails that he loved her, had sleepovers with her and sent her gifts.”
