US rapper Azealia Banks has filed a police report after Russell Crowe allegedly "attacked" her at a Beverly Hills dinner party.

Banks claims the confrontation happened in the Oscar-winner's hotel suite and is "disgusted" with how the incident has been reported.

Crowe, Banks and about 10 other attendees were in the suite on Saturday night.

"She did file a police report after the incident," Banks' representative told Us Weekly magazine

"She wants to go back to New York.

"She's very distraught.

"She's not comfortable being in LA after what happened."

TMZ, quoting witnesses, reported the incident flared when Banks laughed out loud at Crowe's music selection at the party and called him and at least one other guest "boring white men".

Banks was a guest of Crowe's friend, rapper RZA, at the Beverly Hills Hotel gathering.

Crowe reportedly put Banks in a bear hug and physically removed her from the suite after she grabbed a glass and made "bloody threats".

Banks claimed Crowe choked, spat and used the N-word on her.

TMZ claims guests, including RZA, said it was Banks who used the N-word, not Crowe.

"She is very, very disgusted by the reports," Banks' representative told Us Weekly.

"The reports out there don't even remotely resemble what actually happened.

"She was attacked."

It is not the first time Banks has become embroiled with an Australasian.

Last year, she hit out at Australian rapper Iggy Azalea.

"I just really want to know what your fascination with Black women is," Banks wrote on Twitter.

"Why do you want to act like us."
