Gracie and Evan first got him hooked on painkillers and cocaine, according to Luis, and by 2008 Tony had been to rehab five times.
He also gained world-famous heiress Cloe Parker as a best customer and casual friend.
In 2005, Gay Tony hired Luis Lopez as a doorman and bouncer for Hercules.
"The Russian mob want me dead, my best friend just contemplated murdering me, the mob are on my case, I'm massively in debt and I just lost 2 million dollars worth of diamonds.
Any other man would just dust himself off and carry on." Anthony "Tony" Prince, also known as Gay Tony, is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto IV and The Lost and Damned, and the eponymous deuteragonist of The Ballad of Gay Tony, and a supporting character in Grand Theft Auto Online.
Gracie Ancelotti is kidnapped soon after, and the kidnappers demanded the diamonds back from Giovanni Ancelotti in exchange.
Luis and Tony safely exchange the diamonds for Gracie, which resulted in Tony losing out on million but apparently remaining at peace with the Ancelotti family.
However, during the resulting shootout, the diamonds are thrown onto a passing truck, and thus both parties leave empty-handed.
Bulgarin successfully persuades Ancelotti to have Tony killed, who ironically chooses Luis as the one to shoot Tony in exchange for his own life.Tony sees a last chance to pay off his debts in buying and selling some million diamonds for a small profit.When Luis, Tony and his boyfriend Evan go to buy the diamonds from a cook at the Platypus, they are all ambushed by the Lost biker gang, resulting in the death of Evan (who Luis instructed to go a separate way and stash the diamonds at Maisonette 9).His first experience working at a nightclub came from being in the cloakroom and eventually the front door of Elephant in the mid-1980s until a fire caused it to shut down.The first club Tony opened for himself was PUDDLE, a rave venue famously located in a converted mortuary, until it was shut down when Tony was arrested for tax evasion in 1985, spending 3 months in jail.Sometime between 19, the counterpart straight club in Tony's portfolio, Death By Machines also burned down, after which point Tony was briefly banned from opening new venues.
