OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney pleaded with cops in Hawaii to help her before she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend to death, according to newly-released police bodycam footage.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Clenney was arrested in Hawaii in August, then brought back to Miami to stand trial for the death of 27-year-old Christian Obumseli, who died in April.
Clenney, who is known as Courtney Tailor online, has claimed self-defense in the case. Her attorneys, according to the 7 News Miani, say that bodycam footage from Miami police shows Clenney pleading for help and telling them she was being abused.
“[He was], you know, stalking me. I want a restraining order against Christian Obumseli,” Clenney said to police.
Clenney’s lawyer, Frank Prieto, told the outlet that she was the victim in the incident and acted in self-defense.
“Mr. Obumseli was the abuser,” attorney Frank Prieto said. “She was in a struggle for her life. She defended herself, and unfortunately, he’s deceased, but she defended herself with every ounce of energy she had left.”
“I have photographs of her injuries.”
Local 10 News reports that police were called to the couple’s high-rise unit at One Paraiso Condos on numerous occasions for domestic dispute incidents. In one instance, Clenney can be heard saying she wants a restraining order against Obumseli.
Two days after one of the visits, Clenney allegedly stabbed Obumseli in the chest.
“The knife entered Christian’s chest in a downward angle,” Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said, according to 7 News Miami.
Prosecutors allege that Clenney’s self-defense claim had inconsistencies in it. She’s now facing a second-degree murder charge.
Her next scheduled court date is in November. Check back for updates.
