A man who was stabbed to death by his OnlyFans model girlfriend had been secretly recording her tirade of verbal abuse – including her calling him the n-word – in the months before he was killed.
Courtney Clenney, 26, is facing second-degree murder charges after Christian Obumseli, 27, was fatally knifed in the chest at a Miami apartment while the two argued on April 3.
Clenney’s defense have implied self-defense, maintaining that her late boyfriend was the abusive partner, but recordings submitted as evidence in the murder trial now shows that Clenney screamed racial slurs at Obumseli. berating and cursing him in public and private.
Courtney Clenney fight with Obumseli
In one, she calls Obumseli the n-word multiple times, tells him to ‘man up b***h,’ and ‘shut up and let me slap you, dumb a**,’ according to the Miami Herald.
Obumseli can be heard apologizing in the clips as they fight about him saying hello to one of his female friends while he was out on a bike ride.
In another clip, Clenney barks at Obumseli to find her cellphone – before the audio ends with her shouting: ‘I want you to get away from me.’
Obumseli’s family attorney Larry Handfield said that the recordings were ‘shocking,’ and that it shows ‘a consistent pattern with someone who is unhinged and out of control. She is the aggressor and abuser in this whole relationship’.
In another piece of evidence from the phone recordings, Clenney sternly asks her boyfriend if he is ‘done gaslighting me,’ to which he responds: ‘Courtney, that’s a f**king threat. I asked you something … and I apologized but you hit me.’
She can then be heard saying: ‘Shut the f**k up b***ch.’
A third clip revealed an unhinged argument they had on the road – after the OnlyFans model jumped out of their car. She involves a passerby and screams about Obumseli: ‘F**k you! No, you make yourself look good in front of people!’
As they step back into the car, physical slaps can be heard. The audio ends with Obumseli saying: ‘Stop hitting me!’
Bodycam footage recorded the day before she stabbed her boyfriend shows Clenney begging and sobbing to cops to help her get a restraining order against her boyfriend.

Her lawyers are trying to argue that she stabbed him in self-defense, and that a day earlier she was visibly shaken and fearful as she accused him of stalking her.
This comes as footage of the pair inside an elevator revealed Clenney throwing punches at her partner just two months before he was stabbed to death.
Clenney could be seen viciously slapping and pulling Obumseli’s hair as he desperately tried to fend off her blows. But her attorneys say that the harrowing clip lacks context, and her actions were in fact reactionary.
In the clips filmed on April 2, the couple were seen walking into the lobby of the luxury Miami high-rise where Clenney lived with Obumseli where a doorman tells them that there had been a domestic disturbance.
A tearful and visibly upset Clenney is seen talking on her phone before asking the doorman to let her into the apartment after locking herself out.
She then explains that she broke up with Obumseli a week earlier, and her mother had come to stay with her to help her. She also claimed, however, that he had been sleeping in her ‘elevator room’ the entire time.
‘I broke up with him … he slept inside my elevator room on a couch, that’s stalking. He wouldn’t leave me alone,’ she told officers.
The scene in the bodycam footage is chaotic, with multiple people speaking over each other. At one point, Clenney, who is shaking, tries to get officers to listen to her.
Last month, the 911 call the OnlyFans model made after stabbing her boyfriend to death revealed how she sobbed ‘baby, I’m so sorry’ after stabbing him.
Clenney called police after stabbing Christian Obumseli on April 3, 2022.
It was the sad end of the young couple’s tumultuous relationship – just one day earlier, she had called police claiming he was trying to attack her.
The audio revealed how she begged paramedics to hurry to the apartment in Miami.
‘Please, my boyfriend is dying of a stab wound,’ she’s heard pleading on the phone.
She didn’t tell the operator that she had stabbed him, but sobbed to him about how sorry she was.
In the background, Obumseli can be heard crying out: ‘I can’t feel my arm.’
Clenney who is now in custody on charges of second degree murder, insists it was self-defense, that Obumseli regularly assaulted her.
Her attorney says the audio proves how distraught she was after stabbing him, and how determined she was to keep him alive.
‘This is not someone that stabbed somebody and didn’t care.
‘Obviously, you can hear from her emotions she’s asking for somebody to come quickly to help,’ her lawyer told The Miami Herald.
Courtney Clenney in her statement said she threw the knife at her boyfriend from more than 10 feet away, but Fernandez said the autopsy revealed a deep wound that could only be done at a close distance
Obumseli’s family hear something different. They say it shows that she intended to kill him, then regretted it once the knife had been plunged into him.
‘It shows her state of mind. She’s saying she’s sorry because she’s realizing what she’s done. She’s not saying, “I was defending myself,”‘ his family’s attorney, Larry Hadfield said.
Police were called to the apartment complex on April 1.
Clenney told them that Obumseli had been ‘stalking’ her.
Bodycam footage of their interaction shows building security guards corroborating her story, and describing how Obumseli ‘came towards her’.
Obumseli was rushed to the hospital but he died of his injuries.
His family is convinced that Courtney was always the aggressor in their romance, and that she became a ‘different person’ when she drank.
Clenney was arrested in Hawaii in on August 8, and she is currently being held in custody pending the start of her trial.
Clenney and Obumseli had been dating less than two years, and their relationship was tumultuous.
She was arrested for domestic battery in Las Vegas, and police were called to their home in Austin, Texas, on several occasions.
The pair moved to Miami at the beginning of the year and staff and residents at the One Paraiso building where they lived reported multiple domestic disturbance complaints about the couple, and had even moved to evict them.
The sensational murder case, featuring a white female social-media influencer killing her boyfriend, a young Black professional, has garnered international media attention.
The case is also a twist on the vast majority of domestic violence cases, with prosecutors casting Obumseli as the long-suffering male victim of Clenney, while her defense attorneys insist he was the aggressor and she stabbed him in self-defense.
Obumseli’s family have been angered by his killer not being charged immediately over his death, which they have attributed to ‘her ‘privilege’ as a ‘wealthy white woman,’ completely disbelieving her self-defense claim.
In a statement posted to Instagram, the victim’s brother, Jeffrey Obumseli on behalf of the family, said they do not believe Clenney and demand that she be charged with killing the son they called Toby.
Despite the video and shared photos of the handcuffed suspect covered with blood on her high-rise balcony just after the killing, days later she was released and shipped off to a rehab facility for PTSD, while the killing was treated as self-defense.
‘The bottom line is inextricably clear: Courtney is being treated differently because of her privilege as a wealthy White woman,’ Jeffrey Obumseli wrote on Instagram.
‘Within 24 hours following Toby’s death, the detective on the case prematurely concluded this was not a crime of violence.’
Throughout the investigation, Clenney was posting X-rated content on her OnlyFans page since allegedly killing her boyfriend. X-rated content had appeared on her site a day after she killed Obumseli but it is unclear if it had been scheduled to go live before the incident.
However, within 24 hours of her arrest, Clenney’s OnlyFans page was taken down.
