California Stripper Faces Charges For Stabbing His Gay Roommate

California Stripper Faces Charges For Attempted Murder

Fitness model Geoffrey Tracy is facing serious jail time after he stabbed his gay roommate.

Tracy is using the terribly old “gay panic” trick to excuse his murder attempt on August 14th. The fitness model tried to explain to police that he stabbed his 50-year-old roommate Gregory Kanczes 16 times because Kanczes flirted with him.

“The guy tried to make moves on me, I told him no, then he said he’d shoot me so I had to defend myself,” Tracy explained according to the New York Post.

“I had a knife to him, he went for the gun. I filmed myself on my iPhone saying I didn’t want to kill him. He had a gun. I had to kill him,” Tracy added.

Tracy also shared that he tried to get rid of the knife by hiding it in the dumpster. Clearly, that didn’t work.

But here’s the worse part, this accident happended only a few days after Kanczes paid for Tracy to fly from California to New York City and move in with him.

Kanczes, who’s the owner of a gay strip club, found Tracy on Instagram and immediately contacted him about a job. Kanczes even went so far as to let Tracy stay in his Hell’s Kitchen apartment.

But Tracy claims that was all a front for an ultimatium. Tracy says that he felt in danger after Kanczes allegedly threatened to shoot him.

But according to the New York Daily News, Tracy later admitted that he didn’t actually see a gun in Kanczes’s hands.

“He said he was going to shoot me. I didn’t see a gun,” he admitted.

“The guy tried to make moves on me,” he said. “I told him no then he said he’d shoot me so I had to defend myself.”

But Kanczes’s ex-boyfriend of 12 years, named Norman La Chance, says that Greg is full of it.

“He’s so muscular and Greg’s not. You could have thrown him and ran out the door. You don’t stab somebody,” said La Chance.

As for Kanczes, he survived the attack despite being stabbed in his neck, shoulder, and chest. Kanczes was taken to a hospital, but has reportedly been discharged.

Meanwhile, Tracy is out on bail. He has been charged with second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault. Tracy was offered a plea deal of 20 years in prison, but declined.
