25-year-old OnlyFans and Instagram model, Courtney Clenney is presently confronting a homicide allegation in the lethal cutting of her beau at their Miami skyscraper back in April.
Clenney who was captured in Hawaii on Wednesday August 10, is right now anticipating extradition to Florida, where she’ll confront a second-degree murder accusation for purportedly killing 27-year-old Christian Obumseli in April.
The model who has 2 million supporters on Instagram, purportedly cut Obumseil in the chest on April 3 following a battle at their extravagance apartment complex in Miami’s lavish Edgewater area.
A video got by TMZ at the time showed a lady canvassed in blood and encompassed by cops in the structure.
It was also learnt that the model had been at a rehab facility in Hawaii for substance abuse and post traumatic disorder when she was picked up by police, her attorney said.
Her safeguard lawyer, Frank Prieto told Miami Herald;
“I’m completely shocked, especially since we were cooperating with the investigation and offered to voluntarily surrender her if she were charged.
“We look forward to clearing her name in court.”
Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and Miami Police Chief Manuel Morales are expected to announce the charges at a news conference Thursday afternoon, August 11.[ruby_related heading=”More Read” total=5 layout=1]
Friends said Obumseli and Clenney had moved into a unit in the luxury building after moving to South Florida from Texas in the past couple years.
In a statement shortly after Obumseli’s killing, Prieto said the two had a “tumultuous relationship” and that Clenney was a “victim of physical, emotional, and mental abuse at the hands of Obumseli.”
The attorney claimed that Clenney acted in self-defense when Obumseil attacked her after stalking her for several weeks. According to him, the Instagram star was forced to stab Obumseli after he grabbed her by the throat.
According to the Herald, the pair had been living together for a few months at the apartment building, where staff noted multiple domestic incidents and even tried to evict them.
Lawyer Larry Handfield, who represents Obumseli’s family, pushed police to reopen the investigation. He said that cops visited the couple on at least four occasions for domestic calls and noted Obumseli was never taken into custody or charged.
Handfield also emphasized that Clenney wasn’t taken into custody despite allegedly having an open warrant for a 2015 public intoxication case from California. Clenney also was reportedly due in a Texas court on a 2020 DUI charge at the time of the killing.
The model claimed to be suicidal after the killing of Obumseli and spent time in a mental institution, officials said.
