Courtney Clenney, a popular Instagram model who is currently facing second-degree murder charges for stabbing her boyfriend, Christian Obumseli, to death in a Miami apartment building on Sunday, April 3 – is being accused of attempting to flee the country, Media Take Out has learned.
Courtney’s lawyers are arguing she acted in self defense and that she should be allowed to remain on house arrest rather than in police custody, but prosecutors are claiming she is a “flight risk” who made preparations to flee the country shortly after Christian’s death.
Courtney has a successful career as an Instagram model, and also has a profitable O**** account, reportedly moved over $1 million from her accounts into her father’s bank account after she stabbed the 27-year-old to death.
Prosecutors suggest the money was moved so that she could leave the country to avoid criminal prosecution. In legal documents prosecutors say that Courtney held “a profession she can maintain abroad if she flees the country, an act she can certainly afford financially. The defendant furthermore has the means of making quick escape and financially sustaining herself abroad.”
As Media Take Out reported, Courteny was secretly recorded screaming racist slurs at Obumseli some time before his death. The cell phone audio recordings revealed she had been sternly ordering him around, telling him to “man up”, threatening to slap him and using the n-word repeatedly towards him, both privately and in public places.
