Famous American ‘OnlyFans’ star, Courtney Clenney, alias Tailor, has been arrested by the Hawaii Police Department for stabbing her Nigerian-American boyfriend, Christian Tobechukwu Obumseli, to death.
The 26-year-old Instagram model and influencer, was arrested on Wednesday in Hawaii and is awaiting extradition to Florida.
According to NBC News, a statement released on Wednesday by the Hawaii Police Department said that a warrant was issued for the arrest Clenney on allegations of second-degree murder with a deadly weapon.
Clenney’s attorney, Frank Prieto, revealed that she was at a rehab facility in Hawaii for substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder when she was picked up by police.
She is awaiting a second-degree murder charge for allegedly killing 27-year-old Christian Obumseli, Prieto told the Miami Herald.
Prieto also stated that Clenney’s arrest was shocking because of “the clear evidence of self-defense in this matter.”
“I’m completely shocked, especially since we were cooperating with the investigation and offered to voluntarily surrender her if she were charged.
“We look forward to clearing her name in court,” he said.
Clenney, with about two million followers on Instagram, allegedly stabbed Obumseli in the chest on April 3, following a fight at their luxury apartment building in Miami’s ritzy Edgewater neighbourhood
Policemen responded to calls at the couple’s apartment where Obumseli was found bleeding.
Miami Fire Rescue personnel took him to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center where a doctor pronounced him dead.
The family of Obumseli had been calling for justice after Clenney was not charged under the Baker Act, over considerations for her mental health.
In Florida, officers can commit a person to a mental health treatment centre for up to 72 hours by using the state’s Baker Act.
Clenney is expected to make a first appearance in local district court on Thursday, after which she will eventually be extradited to Florida.
