On Aug. 10, 2022, OnlyFans and Instagram model Courtney Clenney, 26, was arrested for second-degree murder in connection with the death of her 27-year-old boyfriend Christian "Toby" Obumseli. He was stabbed to death on April 3, 2022 at the apartment the couple shared in the Edgewater neighborhood of Miami, Florida.

On the day of his murder, Clenney, who goes by Courtney Tailor online, called 911 to report that her boyfriend had been stabbed during an altercation between the two of them.

Obumseli, who worked as a cryptocurrency investor at the time of his death, died from “a knife wound that punctured the subclavian artery in the right side of his chest”, according to Newsweek.

According to an arrest report, Clenney admitted to killing Obumseli — but said she had acted in self-defense. She told police that her boyfriend had thrown her to the floor so she grabbed a knife and threw it at him from about 10 feet away. However, the medical examiner said Obumesli’s wound could not have been caused by a knife thrown from that distance.

Prior to Obumseli’s death, there was a history of domestic incidents that were filed in Austin before the couple moved to Florida.

Aidan Nesvisky lived below the couple and said he would often hear the couple fighting intensely. "It is domestic violence. I mean, if you hear something, see something, say something. You never know what's going on behind closed doors. It's a really sad situation and I think ultimately it could have been avoided," Nesvisky said.

According to Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, evidence gathered during the investigation showed that Clenney and Obumseli had been in “an extremely combative relationship” since November 2020, Fox 4 reported.

Through her lawyer, Clenney claims that the stabbing was in self-defense. In fact, police initially ruled that the death happened in self-defense at the time it happened, however, Clenney was taken into custody on Aug. 10, 2022, and she has been charged with second-degree murder with a deadly weapon.

When she was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service, she was living at a rehab facility in Hawaii where she was undergoing treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and substance abuse.

In a statement to Rolling Stone, Clenney’s lawyer Frank Prieto said, “We are completely shocked at Courtney’s arrest based upon the clear evidence of self-defense in this matter.” He added, “It is an absolute injustice to charge a victim of domestic violence and human trafficking with a crime.”

“We will vigorously defend Courtney and clear her of this unfounded and baseless charge,” Prieto concluded.

Obumseli's family doesn’t accept the claim. His cousin Karen Egbuna said the family has no concrete reason to believe it could have been self-defense. His brother Jeffrey Obumseli said, "There’s many unanswered questions and we just want justice for our brother."
