Azealia Banks posted a series of videos to her Instagram stories over Memorial Day weekend in which the rapper made a series of head-turning claims on famous men and their alleged infidelity. Banks, 28, said that if she came clean about her numerous high profile hook-ups, she could ruin a lot of marriages, and then proceeded to name-check comedian Dave Chappelle.
She said, “I have actually f***ed a lot of f***ing very powerful f***ing men. I should ruin your f***ing marriage. I should tell the world we f***ed. What the f*** I’m keeping secrets from y’all n***as for? Nah, Dave Chappelle can f*** me again. That was some good black d***.”

Chappelle, who was the recipient of the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. last year, has been married to wife Elaine Chappelle for 19 years. The couple tied the knot in 2001, and together they share three children, Sulayman, Ibrahim, and Sonal. Chappelle has not yet commented on Banks’ claims.
