The two had recently broken up. The woman, who is 25 years old and goes by the name Courtney Tailor on social media, was taken into custody in Hawaii on August 10th.
Within a high-rise building in Miami, Courtney stabbed and killed her boyfriend. The investigation indicates that the two were involved in a domestic altercation. The incident took place late on a Sunday night at the upscale condo building known as One Paraiso in Edgewater.
She triggered a media frenzy and drew notice when she was seen in a Miami hotel a few days after she had killed her lover, Christian Toby Obumseli. This caused the hotel to be packed with reporters. After Tailor posted the video of the hotel, internet use skyrocketed all over the world.

Who exactly is Courtney Clenney’s mother and father?
On April 21, 1996, Courtney Bond Clenney was born to her mother, Deborah Bond Clenney, in the residence that her parents occupied in Austin, Texas. Because she does not like to put her family in the spotlight, there is no information available concerning Clenney’s biological father.
She spent her childhood in Austin. She has a strong bond with both of her parents and looks forward to spending time with them. Her parents have always been encouraging of her pursuit of a job.
At the moment, Tailor can be found calling Los Angeles home. On her Instagram profile, the model has accumulated 2 million followers and has posted 1300 times. On the other hand, she does not appear to have shared any information about her family, which suggests that she likes to keep her private life private.
Why Was Courtney Clenney, Who Is Now Faced With Criminal Charges, in Hawaii Before Her Arrest?
Following the issuance of an arrest order by the authorities in Miami, Courtney was taken into custody on Wednesday in Hawaii and charged with murder in the second degree. Her defence counsel in Miami, Frank Prieto, claims that she was receiving treatment in Hawaii for substance misuse and post-traumatic stress disorder when she was in the rehabilitation process.
On April 3, the model is suspected of murdering her Black lover, Christian Toby Obumseli, in their luxury high-rise apartment. Obumseli was found dead in the residence. When police came, they discovered Obumseli bleeding from a stab wound; he was taken to the hospital, but he did not survive. The two are said to have gotten into a physical confrontation, as reported by the police.
The anticipated announcement of criminal charges against Clenney is scheduled to take place at a press conference held by the State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle on Thursday afternoon.
In addition to this, Clenney’s legal representative, Frank Prieto, stated to the Miami Herald that his client would not be arrested. He said, “I’m utterly stunned, especially given we were helping with the inquiry and offering to surrender her if she was charged freely.” He was referring to the fact that she had voluntarily agreed to face the charges. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally clear her name in court.”
They moved in together very quickly, but their relationship was not without its ups and downs at this time. There were allegedly numerous visits from law enforcement to their residence in Austin, Texas, on account of domestic violence. After some time, they went to Miami and started living at One Paraiso in Edgewater. Unfortunately, a horrific accident took place there, and Christian, also known as Toby, passed away.
According to the Miami Herald, throughout the course of their romance, they parted ways on multiple occasions; but, by April, Obumseli had moved back into their One Paraiso condominium.
Prieto claims that his client acted in self-defense and claimed to Rolling Stone that Obumseli tried to choke her. Obumseli denied these allegations. In addition to this, he asserted that Obumseli was violent toward Clenney behind Clenney’s back, which Obumseli’s family vehemently rejected, despite the fact that the attorney conceded that there may have been instances of mutual violence between the two of them.
