MIAMI, FLORIDA: Courtney Clenney, the OnlyFans model who has been charged with second-degree murder with a deadly weapon for fatally stabbing and killing her boyfriend Christian Obumseli on April 3, can be seen punching and hitting Obumseli in video footage inside an elevator just two months before stabbing him to death.
According to Fox News, the 26-year-model was captured on a surveillance video hitting Obumseli, 27, in the elevator of their Miami apartment building, authorities said on August 11. Miami-Dade State Attorney Kathie Fernandez Rundle played the video during a press conference when she declared a second-degree murder charge against Clenney. In the video, Clenney can be seen attacking Obumseli repeatedly with her fists while Obumseli remained defensive as he pushed her back and hit her several times in response. They continued to fight until the elevator door opened, and Obumseli left the elevator. Clenney attempted to hit him again as she followed him out of the elevator. The video was also posted on Twitter by journalist Rosh Lowe.
Fox News quoted Rundle, on the footage of February 21, as saying, "The defendant was aggressively attacking Christian," the video shows Clenney in a white bra and pajama pants smashing elevator buttons before hitting Obumseli, who can be seen wearing a blue t-shirt.
Inside the murder of Christian Obumseli
On April 3, the police received a 911 call from Clenney herself, who reported that her boyfriend had been stabbed, following a fight at their apartment building in Miami’s ritzy Edgewater neighborhood. As reported earlier, cops received a call from Clenney at 5 pm where the police found her boyfriend was stabbed once in his shoulder.
Clenney's attorney has said that she was forced to stab Obumseli after he grabbed her by the throat. He maintained that the two were estranged at the time of the incident and that Obumseli stalked her for several weeks before attacking her. It has also been reported by her friends that she was the abuser in her relationship with her late boyfriend. However, her legal team has claimed that she is a "victim of domestic violence," but Obumseli's family and friends have denied this claim.
