MIAMI – A hearing held for OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney, charged with allegedly murdering her boyfriend, would determine if she would be able to get out of jail on bond as she awaits trial.
Clenney was emotional in court as attorneys played back part of the 911 call from the day she stabbed her boyfriend, Christian Obumseli, inside their luxury apartment in Miami.
Obumseli would eventually die from his injuries and now Clenney is charged with second degree murder.
Her attorneys said it was done in self-defense and that bruises on her body show Obumseli had attacked her first. But a detective explained at least some of those bruises had been there before the incident. The state has said this was not self-defense.
“We have not avoided the fact that this was a mutually abusive relationship. The issue is whether the defendants conduct in stabbing and killing Christian was justified. So, the bruising the defense is going to try to suggest is the result of a struggle is something that did not exist,” said Khalil Quinan, Assistant State Attorney.
The state also submitted new video evidence into discovery, of Clenney’s domestic violence arrest from July of 2021, when she was charged with misdemeanor battery after throwing a glass at Obumseli in Las Vegas.
Miami Police Detective Yermaine Briceno said “Christian was always trying to calm the situation down and the defendant is the one that is always unable to control herself and hurt him.”
“Out of respect for the process involved in this Arthur hearing, we’re not gonna make any comments until the conclusion of the hearings,” said Clenney’s Defense Attorney Frank Prieto.
