Video Of US Model Beating Nigerian Boyfriend Months Before Allegedly Stabbing Him To Death Surfaces
OnlyFans model, Courtney Clenney was caught on video assaulting her boyfriend, Nigerian-American Christian Tobechukwu Obumseli, in the elevator of their Miami apartment building two months before she allegedly stabbed him to death with a kitchen knife.
Courtney Clenney had earlier been charged with murder for stabbing to death her boyfriend Tobechukwu, at their Miami apartment in April this year, according to reports.
The 26-year-old influencer, who goes by Courtney Tailor on social media, was arrested in Hawaii on Wednesday and is currently awaiting extradition to Florida, Daily Mail reports.
However, surveillance footage of the assault was played by Miami-Dade State Attorney Kathie Fernandez Rundle during a press conference on Thursday, where a second-degree murder charge against Clenney was announced.
The startling clip shows Clenney, 26, launching a vicious attack on Christian Obumseli, 27, two months before she allegedly killed him on April 3.
According to Metro news, officials in Miami detailed the pair’s often violent and toxic two-year relationship. Over the course of their on-and-off relationship, the couple received numerous domestic disturbance complaints.
While they’d broken up on several occasions, investigators believe they got back together in the days before Obumseli’s death. That same day, police had been called to their apartment for another domestic disturbance call.
The social media influencer told authorities she acted in defence, and threw the 3 1/2 inch kitchen knife from 10 feet away. Her claim was disputed by the medical examiner, who determined that throwing it from that distance would not have caused the fatal stab wound.
It was also revealed by investigators on Thursday that Clenney had been on the phone with her mother at the time of the stabbing. After hanging up and dialing 911, she can be heard saying ‘I’m sorry, baby,’ to Obumseli, Fox News reported.
When police arrived, they found Clenney holding Obumseli in a puddle of coagulated blood.
After the stabbing her mother had sent her a text mentioning ‘self-defense’ and telling her ‘not to say anything to investigators without an attorney,’ police said.
Officials have not shared what triggered the serious argument between Clenney and Obumseli. Clenney was arrested Wednesday in Hawaii and is currently awaiting extradition to Florida.
The family of Obumseli had earlier been calling for justice after Courtney was not charged under the Baker Act, over considerations for her mental health.
