A Florida OnlyFans model has been sued for wrongful death by the father of the boyfriend she’s accused of killing.
Courtney Clenney, 26, was arrested last August in Hawaii and charged with the April 3 stabbing of Christian Tobechukwu “Toby” Obumseli, 27, at the couple’s high-rise apartment in Miami, as CrimeOnline previously reported.
Clenney, known as Courtney Tailor online, has pleaded not guilty, saying she stabbed Obumseli in self-defense.
Chio Obumseli, Toby’s father, filed his lawsuit in Miami-Dade County court and names the owners of the apartment building, two property management companies, and the building’s security company as defendants in addition to Clenney. His attorneys are The Haggard Law Firm of Coral Gables, Florida.
“At all material times, Courtney Clenney owed a duty to decedent Christian Obumseli to maintain the subject premises in a safe and danger-free manner,” the lawsuit says. “Courtney Clenney breached her duty to exercise reasonable care for the safety and protection of Christian Obumseli, deceased, and acted in a careless and negligent manner.”
According to Law & Crime, the lawsuit “is light on facts” and “uses boilerplate legalese from negligence law” to make its case.
“Courtney Clenney created and/or allowed to be created said dangerous conditions. Further, Courtney Clenney failed to warn subject building’s residents, invitees, and the public, including Christian Obumseli, deceased, of the existence of said dangerous conditions,” the lawsuit says. “The negligence of Courtney Clenney proximately caused injury to Christian Obumseli, deceased, and directly led to his criminal attack.”
“Criminals could carry out physical assaults within subject building without fear of being caught, discovered, or prosecuted,” it claims. “An atmosphere was created at subject building that facilitated the commission of crimes against persons.”
Chio Obumseli is suing on behalf of his son’s estate, the lawsuit says. He asks for damages over $50,000 to cover pain and suffering, past and future loss of support and services, medical care, and funeral expenses.
Clenney remains jailed after she was denied bail in November.
