The parents of a man allegedly slain by OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney said on Sunday that the social media creator should spend the rest of her life in prison.
The attorney for Christian Obumseli’s family told TMZ that Obumseli’s parents are glad the 25-year-old model, who goes by Courtney Tailor on social media, was charged with second-degree murder.
The attorney, Larry Handfield, added that the family’s faith in the justice system was restored when Clenney was finally charged — nearly four months after she stabbed Obumseil, 27, in the chest.
The stabbing took place during a fight at their luxury apartment building in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood on April 3.
Clenney’s attorney, Frank Prieto, has claimed that she acted in self-defense when Obumseil attacked her after stalking her for several weeks.
The Instagram star was forced to stab Obumseil after he grabbed her by the throat, Prieto said. The pair had been dating for less than two years and were in a “tumultuous” relationship, he said.
Prieto claimed that 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 would manipulate and abuse Courtney in private when he thought nobody was around.”
Clenney, who has 2 million followers on Instagram, had been at a rehab facility in Hawaii for substance abuse and post-traumatic disorder when she was arrested last Wednesday.
Handfield had pushed police to reopen the investigation. He told the Miami Herald that cops visited the couple on at least four occasions for domestic calls and noted Obumseli was never taken into custody or charged.
Handfield also emphasized that Clenney wasn’t taken into custody despite allegedly having an open warrant for a 2015 public intoxication case from California. Clenney also was reportedly due in a Texas court on a 2020 DUI charge at the time of the killing.
