OnlyFans star Courtney Clenney’s boyfriend was heard calmly saying he couldn’t feel his arm after she allegedly stabbed him to death during a fight earlier this year, according to a newly released 911 call.
The 26-year-old social media influencer was hit with a second-degree murder charge in the death of Christian Obumseli, 27, after the couple got into a vicious fight on April 3.
“I can’t feel my arm. I can’t my feel my arm,” Obumseli can be heard saying in the 911 call she made to ask for help after he was stabbed in the torso, the Miami Herald reported.
“My boyfriend is dying of a stab wound! Baby, I’m so sorry!” says Clenney, who has 2 million Instagram followers and had a once thriving OnlyFans business.
The 911 call was previously detailed in an arrest warrant made public during a court appearance in August but the audio of the distressing call has only just been revealed.
In addition to the 911 call, prosecutors have released police bodycam footage of cops speaking to Clenney days before the fatal incident during a domestic disturbance call at the couple’s luxury apartment in Miami.
Clenney’s legal team has argued that the model was acting in self-defense.
“I want a restraining order against Christian Obumseli,” she is heard saying on footage recorded by a City of Miami cops and obtained by WSVN.
The video also captured a building employee telling officers that Obumseli launched at Clenney in the lobby.
“We get down here to the lobby area, and her boyfriend comes charging towards her,” the guard says in the video.
But Clenney disputed that description in an email to building management.
“He followed me into the elevator in the lobby and I put my hand up as [if] to say leave me alone. Nothing physical whatsoever,” she wrote April 2, the Herald reported. “A few minutes later, two front desk employees/security guards knocked on my door just before I was about to go to the pool.”
Prosecutors say Clenney — who was was arrested while she was in rehab in Hawaii four months after the bloody incident and charged with second-degree murder — was the aggressor and that Obumseli was unarmed.
Larry Handfield, an attorney who represents the Obumseli family, said the 911 call speaks for itself and “shows her state of mind,” according to the Herald.
“She’s saying she’s sorry because she’s realizing what she’s done. She’s not saying, ‘I was defending myself,’” he said.
But Clenney’s defense attorney said the audio shows she was thrust into a situation she didn’t want to be in.
“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,” Sabrina Puglisi said.
“It’s very clear from the video she looks upset. She’s emotional. She’s crying. She’s upset that she can’t even walk her dogs all day for fear of being followed by Obumseli,” the lawyer added, according to the newspaper.
Clenney’s other attorney, Frank Prieto, also has said Obumseli was the abuser and Clenney was a victim in the volatile relationship.
“She was in a struggle for her life,” Prieto told WSVN. “She defended herself, and unfortunately, he’s deceased, but she defended herself with every ounce of energy she had left.”
He previously said Clenney was forced to stab Obumseli after he grabbed her by the throat.
Handfield countered by saying said the disturbance — which occurred two days before the killing — was irrelevant because “everyone knew they had an on-again off again relationship” and Obumseli was never arrested.
“There is a pattern when she drinks, she becomes as different person,” the lawyer said, according to the Herald.
“What the defense is seeking to do is to try use an incident in which she is clearly intoxicated as justification for her taking Obumseli’s life two days later,” he added.
