Courtney Clenney: OnlyFans star moved $1.1M to dad’s account after stabbing boyfriend to death
According to the prosecution, Courtney Clenney was hiding money that would have enabled her to leave the country after the horrific attack
MIAMI, FLORIDA: Courtney Clenney, an OnlyFans star, reportedly collected millions and shifted funds into her father's bank after fatally stabbing her partner, according to evidence presented in court. After killing Christian Obumseli, the 26-year-old transferred $50,000 and $1.1 million into the account through wire transfers, as per the testimony given in Miami.
According to the prosecution, she was hiding money that would have enabled her to leave the country after the horrific attack. Additionally, they mentioned that as long as she had access to the internet and her employment, she would be able to support herself wherever she went. The day following the attack, she was seen in new photos provided by the police covered in bruises, Daily Mail reported. Clenney is charged with second-degree murder after Obumseli, 27, was fatally stabbed in the chest at a Miami condominium on April 3 when the two were arguing. According to her attorneys, she stabbed him in self-defense a day after accusing him of stalking her while seeming extremely terrified and agitated. On November 10, the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office asked the court to order her to stay put because she was considered a flight risk late.
The Miami Herald hinted that Clenney can boast "a profession she can maintain abroad if she flees the country, an act she can certainly afford financially.” It further read: “The defendant furthermore has the means of making quick escape and financially sustaining herself abroad.” It claimed that because she worked as an OnlyFans model, she was free to work anywhere in the globe and was therefore outside the purview of US law because the company is situated abroad. The idea went into great detail about Clenney's income, claiming that she earned $966,692 in 2020 and $1.8 million in 2021. Moreover, it identified "suspicious" wire transfers she is accused of making after the murder, including one for $1,134,000 and another for $50,000 sent into her father's account after Obumseli's death.
According to the prosecution, her "suspicious timing" suggested that she was "attempting and otherwise preparing to frustrate justice and avoid criminal prosecution." Sabrina Puglisi, the defense attorney, said that the defendant used her funds to buy a home in Texas whilst "creating ties to the community" there. As per Daily Mail, she added: “We don't think she's going to flee.” A Miami judge will decide on Tuesday, November 15 whether to grant Clenney a bond, place her under home arrest or hold her in jail until her case is heard. Her attorneys argue she is entitled to house arrest as a result of police this week released images of her battered body in the days following the attack. However, according to the prosecution, prior to the murder day, they were already visible on her body in the Instagram posts.
