Trouble continues to brew for the Harlem rapper.

Azealia Banks' over-opinionated Tweets and beefs have gotten her in trouble before, but never quite like this.

The "212" rapper is being investigated by the LAPD for criminal battery after allegedly assaulting a security guard at a nightclub.

She and a group of friends were allegedly kicked out of LA’s Break Room 86 before things got physical. On her way out, a security guard stopped her as she began tampering with fire control valves. It was history after that.

In a video obtained by TMZ, Banks and a member of her crew are seen attacking the security guard as he tries to grab her.

While she surprisingly hasn't publicly commented towards the matter, it's speculated this has a lot to do with the cancelation of majority of her tour dates.

"Hi guys, I'm very busy at work" she offered for an explanation. "Your coins will be refunded and I will be back in January."
