On April 4, 2022, OnlyFans and Instagram model Courtney Clenney fatally stabbed her Nigerian boyfriend, Christian Tobechukwu Obumseli, a cryptocurrency trader. At the time, the Florida model was 26 years old. After her arrest, she was charged with second-degree murder, even though the police initially ruled the incident an act of self-defense.
Courtney’s case has continued to drag on in court and has also implicated her parents.
A Look at Her Early Life and Career
Courtney Clenney was born on April 21, 1996, in Midland, Texas. She is currently 27 years old. Her parents are Deborah Clenney and Kim Clenney. When she was 7 years old, her family moved to Austin City, Texas. As a teenager, she showed an interest in drama and dance. She later shifted her focus to physical fitness and even became a qualified personal trainer.
As an adult, Courtney Clenney took to social media to earn a living. Through brand promotions and exclusive content on Instagram and OnlyFans, she was able to generate significant income for herself. She made $3 million in two years from her OnlyFans account. This platform is a major source of income.
How Courtney Clenney Met Her Late Boyfriend
While on a trip to Tulum, Mexico, Courtney first met Christian, a crypto trader. She, other OnlyFans models, and their photographers were at the deceased friend’s house. They got talking and decided to take things further. On their return from Mexico, the two got together in Austin, Texas, and moved to a luxury condo in Miami. They started dating in November 2020.
She Stabbed Christian With a Six-inch Blade
Although Courtney claimed to have thrown the blade at Obumseli, reports from the medical examiner contradicted her. On April 3, 2022, in the heat of an argument, Clenney picked up a six-inch blade and stabbed her deceased lover. The wound cut his artery, which led to his death. She claimed self-defense, but there were no signs on her body to prove that she was attacked. It took four months before she was arrested in Hawaii for the murder while undergoing rehab.
Courtney Clenney Spent Over $1 Million After Fleeing
It’s unclear what informed her decision, but Courtney went on a spending spree. The OnlyFans model purchased a home close to her parents for $1.35 million. This was two months after she killed her boyfriend. She took this money from her $3 million OnlyFans earnings. While cooling off in Hawaii, Clenney was spending $10,000 a month on this luxury apartment in the island state. The house has four bedrooms, four baths, a media and game room, and a pool.
Courtney Has a History of Being Abusive
Courtney had a violent relationship with Christian Obumseli. While it is common for men to be the abusive ones in a relationship, Clenney changed the narrative. A few months before the tragic incident, the couple fought while on a content trip. The video of the altercation was released, and it showed the OnlyFans model making several attempts to hit her late boyfriend. CCTV footage and audio recordings on her lover’s phone have proven that the 26-year-old was the violent partner.
She Threatened to Burn the House of An 18-year-old
Weeks after taking the life of her boyfriend, Courtney was involved in another incident. This time, she threatened to burn down the house of an 18-year-old boy. Under the heavy influence of alcohol, she requested the boy kiss her, which he turned down. Thankfully, the boy texted his dad, who came to his rescue. They, however, didn’t press charges against the disturbed model.
Her Parents Were Arrested For Tampering With Evidence
A significant incident occurred on January 30, 2024, involving Courtney’s parents, Deborah and Kim Clenney. They were arrested for unlawfully gaining access to Christian Obumseli’s laptop, which they had discovered in their daughter’s possession. Courtney provided her father with the password, and he used it to access the device.
Afterward, her mother passed the laptop on to Courtney’s lawyers. This action violated Christian Obumseli’s privacy and was considered a serious breach of confidentiality. The situation caused much controversy and resulted in legal consequences for all parties involved.
