'That’s Not Real': OnlyFans Murder Suspect Cried When Told Boyfriend She Knifed Had Died
Courtney Clenney, who is charged with murdering the boyfriend, Christian “Toby” Obumseli, she admittedly injured with a knife, is seen on tape sobbing when told he died as a result of his wounds.
The OnlyFans model accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend in their Miami apartment earlier this year is seen gasping, sobbing and putting her hand over her mouth when she's told of his death in newly-obtained video of her police interrogation.
Courtney Clenney is charged with second-degree murder with a deadly weapon for the April 3 death of Christian Tobechukwu “Toby” Obumseli, 27.
Clenney, who goes by Courtney Tailor professionally, can be seen reacting to authorities informing her that Obumseli died at the hospital in video from a Miami Police Department interrogation chamber that was obtained by Law&Crime.
"We have to inform you that Christian did not make it," one of the detectives in the room can be heard saying. In the video, Clenney, 26, immediately gasps and puts her hand to her neck, then asks, "Christian is dead?"
The detective says yes, and Clenney responds, "Oh my God," and places her hand over her mouth. "This is not real, right?" she says, before asking, "Christian died?"
She then asks for a hug, adding, "Am I allowed to do that in here?" Someone in the room rises to hug her and she begins to stand up, then sits back down. "I need to hug my mom," Clenney says.
After the man who offered the hug says, "I'll talk to your parents," Clenney responds, "I cannot be left alone in, like, a room by myself."
Clenney then expresses disbelief at her boyfriend's death again. "No, that's not true," she says. "That's not real, right? Christian is dead?"
After being reassured again that it is, in fact, true, she says, "I just can't believe it," and "I've been crying so much."
She later puts her head down on the table in the interrogation room and sobs, eventually lifting her head up to say, "I wanted to be at the hospital. If anything happened to him, I just wanted to be at the hospital."
"I'm gonna wake up tomorrow and it's gonna be the same thing," she added.
She was arrested in Hawaii in August for murder and extradited to Florida, where she was denied bond. Her lawyers appealed that decision.
Prosecutors showed evidence during a November bond appear hearing that the OnlyFans model made more than $3 million from modeling, including $40,000 since her boyfriend was killed — arguing that she had the money to leave Miami and even the United States.
Her lawyers had said her parents could supervise her during a home release since Clenney had bought property in Texas, where she's originally from.
But the judge told lawyers that she wouldn't be granting the OnlyFans model bond, the Miami Herald reported.
“The Court does not agree that placing defendant on house arrest with her parents in Texas is an appropriate form of release in this case,” Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Laura Shearon Cruz wrote, adding that Clenney has violated court orders of supervision in other states.
Prosecutors said that Clenney claimed at first that she'd thrown a knife at Obumseli while fighting in their apartment the day he died, alleging that he tried to choke her, but the coroner determined that a three-inch stab wound found during the autopsy was inconsistent with her claim. Cops also said she had no injuries on the day of Obumseli's death that would have been consistent with being assaulted.
The Miami Herald reported that Clenney had a history abusing Obumseli, including an arrest for domestic battery in Las Vegas after she threw a glass at Obumseli. Police were called to their home several times when they lived in Austin, Texas, according to the Herald, and staffers at their Miami-area building reported multiple domestic disturbance complaints about the couple from neighbors.
Clenney is due back in court on Feb. 6.
