Genie Exum, a Instagram model with over 34.5K followers, has been accused of allegedly stabbing her boyfriend in their New York city apartment Monday night. According to police, the victim was stabbed twice and is expected to recover.

The couple was reportedly having an argument in their apartment on 10th Avenue in New York City when Genie grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed her boyfriend once in the back and arm.

Police were called to the apartment around 6:45 p.m. that night to deal with the incident. Genie is being held and expected to face arraignment for assault in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday.

The Instagram model is best known for her account that features pictures of herself in very revealing bikinis. She also has a Twitter and an Only Fans account, and last month she made the news after posting a picture of herself flashing some NYPD cops. She captioned the photo, “Caption This.”

A similar stabbing happened in August and it left many Instagram models scared. Jenae Gagnie, an Instagram star from Houston was murdered after a follower tracked her down and strangled her before killing himself.

Jenae, who went by Mercedes Morr on her Instagram, became known for her sexy photos and party lifestyle. She got over 2.7 million followers on Instagram. The model partied with Drake, had brands like Fashion Nova begging to sponsor her, and seemed to get mobbed by fans every time she left the house.

According to her friends, the 33-year-old was living a double life and could be very sweet to her family and friends. “Mercedes was more the fun party person. Everyone wanted to be around her. Perfect — makeup, hair perfect. Just beautiful,” said her friend and manager Monica Jets. “Janae got one eyelash on, curled up in bed with a bonnet on her head. That was her element.”

When the young woman didn’t return her parents’ or friends’ calls one weekend, they knew something was wrong. It was her father who found her body at the bottom of her apartment stairs. At first he thought it was an accident.

Then Mark Gagnier went upstairs and found the body of Florida man, Kevin Accorto. He had a knife sticking out of his neck and according to the father of the former Instagram influencer, Kevin had covered the apartment’s walls with a confessions of guilt and love for Jenae.

Some of those ramblings included, “Janae led me to think she cared about me but wore another man’s ring, I wish I never met her,” and “I should have stayed in Florida.”

Police investigated the crime and determined that there was no relationship between Jenae and Kevin Accorto and that he was just an obsessed fan who tracked down the influencer. The investigation also determined that Kevin tried to kill himself, but was unsuccessful and died a slow death after the stabbing. The Florida man was inside the apartment for two days and barely alive when Jenae’s father arrived.

Fort Bend County Medical Examiner ruled Jenae’s death a homicide and told police that she died from strangulation and a concussion to the head.

Monica Jets is giving advice to other Instagram influencer clients so they don’t face similar tragedies. She said, “I’m preaching to them now: whenever you make stories on Instagram, save them and post them later. Post them when you’re not there. If you go out of the country, save all your stuff when you get back. I tell them not to be flashy, but of course they are flashy. That’s why they are who they are.”
