A model can be heard pleading for help on social media in a frantic 911 call after authorities say she fatally stabbed her boyfriend in their luxury Miami apartment earlier this year.
The 911 call, released Wednesday by the Miami-Dade state attorney’s office, captured the moments Courtney Clenney called for help after she allegedly stabbed boyfriend Christian Obumseli in the chest on April 3 in their unit at the One Paraiso condo building on Northeast 7 .avenue in Edgewater.
Obumseli can first be heard in the background as Clenney talks to the operator.
“I’m going to die. I can’t feel my hands,” he says in the call. “I can’t feel my hands.”
Clenney can be heard apologizing to Obumseli, telling him “honey, I’m so sorry”, as she calls for help from the 911 operator.
“My boyfriend is dying from a stab wound!” she says in the call. “Please God, please. Come save my boyfriend!”
Obumseli later died from stab wounds. Clenney was arrested in August on a charge of second-degree murder in the murder.
The release of the 911 call comes a day after the release of Miami police body cam video showing officers responding to an apartment building after a reported domestic dispute between Clenney and Obumseli just two days before the stabbing.
A newly released video shows social media model Courtney Clenny talking to Miami police officers just days before authorities say she stabbed her boyfriend to death in their luxury Miami apartment.
Clenney can be heard saying she wants a restraining order against Obumseli.
“How do I make myself first because I know him and he would do that,” she tells the officers. “I haven’t always been a victim, but right now I’m a fucking victim, I’m scared to walk my dogs.”
From the beginning, Clenney’s lawyers said she was acting in self-defense when she stabbed Obumseli.
In an interview Wednesday, attorneys said the video showed Clenney was the victim.
“She wants to get him away from her, but she doesn’t want him arrested, I think that’s what her statements show. Because she could clearly say ‘yes, he was physical with me,’ and from there,” said defense attorney Sabrina Puglisi. “But she tried to de-escalate it by saying ‘well it’s not my concern’ because she doesn’t want him arrested, she just wants to go and think and she’s hoping the police will help her just take him away, not arrest him him.”
Miami-Dade prosecutors acknowledged the two were “engaged in an extremely tumultuous and combative relationship,” but said Obumseli was a victim of domestic violence.
At a news conference shortly after Clenney’s arrest, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle showed surveillance footage of the couple violently fighting in the building’s elevator on Feb. 21, about a month after they moved in.
“It certainly appears that the defendant was aggressively attacking Christian,” Fernandez Rundle said.

Obumseli, 27, and Clenney, 26, moved to South Florida from Texas in January 2022. Clenney, who goes by the name Courtney Tailor on social media, including OnlyFans, has more than 2 million followers on Instagram.
Clenney remains behind bars without bond in Miami-Dade pending trial.
