Courtney Clenney's attorney has said that she was forced to stab Obumseli after he grabbed her by the throat
HILO, HAWAII: OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney, 26, who fatally stabbed her boyfriend Christian Obumseli, 27, on April 3, has been arrested on a charge of second-degree murder with a deadly weapon on August 10. Hawaii County police said in a statement they assisted the US Marshals Service as they arrested the OnlyFans model in Laupahoehoe. Officers used an arrest warrant issued by Miami-Dade County, Florida, as per reports.
The arrest comes after a four-month investigation into the murder of Obumseli. The arrest of the model, who is considered to be suicidal after the killing and spent time in a mental institution, was confirmed on the afternoon of August 10 by her defense lawyer, Frank Prieto, who mentioned that Clenney had been in rehabilitation for substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder in Hawaii, as per Miami Herald. He said, “I’m completely shocked, especially since we were cooperating with the investigation and offered to voluntarily surrender her if she were charged,” He added, "We look forward to clearing her name in court.” According to AP, Clenney, who is also known as Courtney Tailor, is being held at the East Hawaii Detention Center and will make a court appearance in Hilo District Court on August 11.
The details of the murder
Clenney, who has two million followers on Instagram, allegedly stabbed Obumseil in the chest on April 3 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 on April 3, 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. Prieto earlier told Rolling Stone, "She tried to administer first aid as best she could; she called 911. She got covered in his blood trying to save his life."
