A former neighbor of OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney, who has been accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death, says the pair would often get into chaotic and violent disputes.
Clenney, a 26-year-old OnlyFans and Instagram model, has been charged with second-degree murder in the April 3 fatal stabbing of her 27-year-old boyfriend, Christian Obumseli.
Before moving to Miami, the pair lived in Austin, Texas, in an apartment above Aidan Nesvisky, who detailed the disastrous fights he would overhear to Fox 7.
One fight became so vicious that a tiger painting was thrown onto Nesvisky’s apartment balcony as the couple quarreled upstairs.
‘Behind closed doors, we just started hearing some shouting, yelling. We don’t know who was starting, why we didn’t get a lot of context,’ Nesvisky said. ‘Occasionally we would hear some glasses break and some banging on the walls. Floors, not sure you know who was doing it.’
He added: ‘I just want people to know that I had been going on for a long time, and it definitely could have been stopped.’
Nesvisky said the police were called on the couple several times while they lived in Austin — a troubling trend that officials say only continued with their move to Miami.
A four month probe into Obumseli’s death concluded last week with Clenney’s arrest in Hawaii, where she was living at a rehab for substance abuse and post traumatic stress.
Her attorney Frank Prieto has not denied that she stabbed Obumseli to death, but has defended her actions as self defense.
According to an arrest report, she said Obumseli had pushed her and thrown her to the ground. She said she then grabbed a kitchen knife and threw it at Obumseli from about 10 feet (3 meters) away.
After Obumseli’s autopsy, however, a medical examiner said the wound could not have been caused by a knife thrown at that distance.
‘Obumseli was the abuser, the worst kind of abuser,’ Prieto said in a statement to the Associated Press. ‘He would manipulate and abuse Courtney in private when he thought nobody was around.’
Shocking video footage taken in the elevator of the couple’s Miami apartment building just two months before Obumseli’s death appears to show Clenney as the aggressor in a fight.
The clip shows Clenney slamming elevator buttons before turning on Obumseli. She repeatedly hits Obumseli with her fists, sometimes hitting his head and yanking at his hair.
Obumseli can be seen in the footage trying to push Clenney off of him.
Officials have not shared what sparked the fatal argument between Clenney and Obumseli.
