The parents of a man allegedly killed by OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney said Sunday the social media creator should spend the rest of her life in prison.
Christian Obumseli’s family’s attorney told TMZ that Obumseli’s parents are glad the 25-year-old model, who goes by the name of Courtney Tailor on social media, has been charged with second-degree murder.
Attorney Larry Handfield added that the family’s confidence in the justice system was restored when Clenney was finally charged – almost four months after she stabbed Obumseil, 27, in the chest.
The stabbing happened on April 3 during a brawl at their luxury apartment building in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood.
Clenney’s attorney, Frank Prieto, has claimed she acted in self-defense when Obumseil attacked her after stalking her for several weeks.
The Instagram star was forced to stab Obumseil after grabbing her by the throat, Prieto said. The couple had been together for less than two years and were in a “tumultuous” relationship, he said.
Prieto claimed Obumseil was the abusive partner in the relationship.
“Obumseli was the abuser, the worst kind of abuser,” he said in a statement to The Post.
“He privately manipulated and abused Courtney when he thought no one was around.”
Clenney, who has 2 million followers on Instagram, was in a rehab facility in Hawaii for substance abuse and post-traumatic disorder when she was arrested last Wednesday.
Handfield had urged the police to reopen the investigation. He told the Miami Herald that police officers visited the couple at least four times for domestic calls and found that Obumseli was never taken into custody or charged.
Handfield also stressed that Clenney was not taken into custody despite allegedly having an outstanding warrant for a public poisoning case from California in 2015. Clenney was also reportedly due in a Texas court on a 2020 DUI charge at the time of the murder.
