Using a kitchen knife in Hell’s Kitchen, a 22-year-old Instagram influencer allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the back during a domestic dispute.
Genie Exum was arrested after police were called to the 10th Avenue home on Monday evening, New York Police Department confirmed to The Independent.
“Upon arrival, a 30-year-old male complainant reported that he had a verbal dispute with a 22-year-old female, when she stabbed him in the arm and back with a kitchen knife,” NYPD said in a statement.
Ms Exum has 35,000 followers on Instagram, where her 86 posts are a mix of travel photos and selfies.
She describes herself as a “free spirit from Alabama with a loud mouth & dirty mind” on the social media site OnlyFans, where she charges subscribers $20 per month for photos and video clips. Subscriptions are currently on sale at 50 per cent off to $10 until 18 November. She has made 655 posts, garnering more than 180,000 likes, since joining the site.
Ms Exum was arraigned in New York Criminal Court on Tuesday charged with assault with intent to cause physical injury with a weapon, which is a class D felony.
Ms Exum did not immediately respond to The Independent’s request for comment by the time of publication, and no defence attorney was listed in court documents.
Her boyfriend, meanwhile, was transported to NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue with non-life-threatening injuries and was in a stable condition.
