Video shows U.S. model Clenney striking Nigerian-American Tobechukwu Obumseli boyfriend repeatedly a month before his murder
OnlyFans star Courtney Clenney has been charged with murder for stabbing to death her boyfriend Nigerian-American Christian Tobechukwu Obumseli.
The fatal stabbing happened at their Miami apartment in April this year, according to reports.
The 25-year-old influencer, who goes by Courtney Tailor on social media, was arrested in Hawaii on Wednesday and is currently awaiting extradition to Florida.
She is expected to face a second degree murder charge for allegedly killing 27-year-old Christian Obumseli, her defense attorney, Frank Prieto, confirmed to the Miami Herald.
Clenney 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.
“I’m completely shocked, especially since we were cooperating with the investigation and offered to voluntarily surrender her if she were charged,” Prieto told the paper.
“We look forward to clearing her name in court.”
The model’s arrest comes almost four months after prosecutors reopened a probe into the fatal stabbing.
Clenney, who has 2 million followers on Instagram, allegedly stabbed Obumseil in the chest on April 3 following a fight at their luxury apartment building in Miami’s ritzy Edgewater neighbourhood.
