The family of a slain North Texas man is suing the woman who was arrested and accused of stabbing and killing him in Miami in April 2022. Courtney Clenney, a 26-year-old OnlyFans model and Instagram influencer, was arrested in Hawaii in August 2022 and charged with stabbing her 27-year-old boyfriend, Christian Obumseli. Clenney’s lawyer, Frank Prieto, told the Miami Herald that she was in Hawaii for treatment for substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Obumseli’s father, Chio Obumseli of Richardson, has now filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Clenney, the owners of the high-rise building where the altercation occurred, and the management and security companies of the exclusive property.
The lawsuit, filed in Miami-Dade County, Fla., alleges Clenney failed to “maintain the subject premises in a safe and danger-free manner” and claims she was negligent in that “an atmosphere was created at subject building that facilitated the commission of crimes against persons.”
Chio Obumseli, as the representative of Christian Obumseli’s estate, is suing for the cost of his “medical care and funeral arrangements,” loss of future income and his family’s pain and suffering.
Clenney’s lawyers have argued that she was a victim of domestic violence and acted in self-defense.
Clenney’s next hearing is slated for May 9 in Miami-Dade criminal court, according to an online docket. She faces a charge of second-degree murder with a deadly weapon, according to the Herald’s report.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Obumseli’s estate is suing all of the defendants, including the alleged murderer, for negligence, suggesting that the victim’s death resulted from a ticking timebomb the defendants in the suit allowed to explode.
Radar reports that the estate blames the owner of the condo building and the security team for failing to protect the subject premises’ residents and invitees, including “Christian Obumseli” from “reasonably foreseeable criminal attacks.”
