We really hope Azealia Banks had a great time in France for Paris Fashion Week, because she could very well be going to jail over it. An arrest warrant has been issued after Banks failed to attend court this week. She was slated to appear in defence of a 2015 altercation where she assaulted a security guard and later charged with a misdemeanour for assault, attempted assault and disorderly conduct.

Her lawyers released this statement saying that the rapper got her dates messed up and that's why she didn't end up showing up to her court date: "Azealia Banks mistakenly believed she had a court appearance on March 8 instead of March 6. She was in France for Fashion week due to meetings and other social gatherings and was not able to arrange her flight in time to appear today. She apologizes and will apologize in person to the Court for missing her scheduled hearing. In addition, she attempted to appear via a New York Attorney and through a close family member. Ms. Banks will go to the department to remedy the situation as soon as possible. Again, she apologizes for the inconvenience that may have caused the Department."
