City National Bank should have noted rapper Azealia Banks’ album title, “Broke with Expensive Taste,” before approving her for two credit cards and a personal line of credit.
The California-based bank is now suing the singer over a $137,000 debt.
Banks first signed up for a Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card with the financial institution in 2012, according to the Manhattan Supreme Court suit.
She made payments through December 2016 and then fell behind, the suit says.
Banks now owes close to $79,000 on that card.
Then in May 2015, City National gave Banks a second Visa card. She stopped making payments on that card a year later, the suit says. Her balance is currently $8,000.
Banks — who in March copped to third-degree assault in exchange for a deferred no-jail sentence for a bizarre altercation at Up & Down nightclub where she bit a bouncer’s breast — owes over $50,000 for a personal line of credit from 2016, according to court papers.
The consumer credit suit comes as the songstress is facing criminal assault charges for allegedly biting a security guard who threw her out of a club in 2015.
