Christian Toby Obumseli is the Miami, Florida, man who was stabbed to death in a luxury apartment building. Authorities believe that Obumseli’s girlfriend, Courtney Clenney, an OnlyFans model named Courtney Tailor, stabbed Obumseli.

Clenney has now been charged with second-degree murder.

Clenney’s lawyer told The Miami Herald that Clenney was a victim of domestic abuse and acted in self-defense. The stabbing remains under investigation. Controversy erupted on Twitter, where people used the hashtag #ChristianObumseli. Some raised concerns that Clenney will be treated more leniently because she is white; others criticized Obumseli for old tweets in his name criticizing Black women. Police have officially released very few details about the death, which is causing controversy online.

The man who died was Christian Obumseli, confirmed News10, which described Clenney as an OnlyFans model and “Instagram influencer.” That television station reported that police believe Clenney stabbed Obumseli.

Clenney’s attorney Frank Prieto told the Miami Herald that she acted in self-defense and was a domestic violence victim. “As Courtney struggles with the pain of being a survivor of domestic violence and the aftermath of the events that evening, we ask that the community and Christian’s family allow the police and the state to conduct their independent investigation of the events,” he said to the newspaper.

However, Obumseli’s brother Jeffrey wrote on Instagram, “The bottom line is inextricably clear: Courtney is being treated differently because of her privilege as a wealthy white woman. Within 24 hours following Toby’s death, the detective on the case prematurely concluded this was not a crime of violence. But the information provided is deficient and the lack of transparency strongly suggests foul play is involved.”

“This is a tragedy for all involved but it was not criminal conduct; Courtney was defending herself and the investigation will reveal exactly that.” His family disputes that, calling it a “selfish act” on a GoFundMe page.

Prominent attorney Lee Merritt wrote on Twitter, “My firm does not represent the family of #ChristianObumseli. His murder & justification is a familiar pattern in American jurisprudence— one I hope does not repeat itself in this case. I offered guidance to his family in the immediate wake of this tragedy as they seek justice.”

Here’s what you need to know:

1. Obumseli, Who Tweeted Disparaging Remarks About Black Women, Studied Communication in Texas, Where He Went to High School in Plano

Obumseli’s brother Jeffrey wrote a lengthy post on Instagram.

As a family, we strongly disagree with the ignorant and repulsive tweets from my then-high school aged brother that have recently surfaced. However, the tweets do not diminish our demand for a thorough investigation into Toby’s murder or negate the necessity for justice.

It’s been a week since my brother was brutally and senselessly killed. Courtney Taylor Clenney’s callous actions have not been met with an ounce of remorse. We’ve seen videos of Courtney kissing her dogs while covered in what we believe to be my brother’s blood and casually getting drinks at a hotel bar days later while my brother lays in the morgue.

The bottom line is inextricably clear: Courtney is being treated differently because of her privilege as a wealthy white woman. Within 24 hours following Toby’s death, the detective on the case prematurely concluded this was not a crime of violence. But the information provided is deficient and the lack of transparency strongly suggests foul play is involved. Courtney acknowledges that Toby did not have a weapon. She has no injuries to support her story of imminent danger. Additionally, Courtney still has yet to explain exactly what happened leading up to Toby’s murder. We have every reason to believe that his death was the result of unwarranted and unprovoked violence. We want to see that justice is served.

With family, you may not agree with every action or statement made, but it is my duty to zealously fight for my brother. No family should have to go through what we are experiencing. We have a long legal battle ahead of us to ensure justice is served. I need your support. My family needs your support. We cannot do this without community.

God bless you all.

Both Obumseli and Clenney have ties to Texas.

Obumseli’s Facebook page said he was the owner of Wisemen & Peachtree LLC who “studied Communication Studies at Texas Tech University” and went to Plano East Senior High School. He was from Plano, Texas, and wrote that he was single and living in Dallas, Texas

Two weeks before the stabbing, Clenney appeared on the We In Miami podcast, according to Radar Online. “I only date Black guys. Especially Black guys … Let me clarify, I only date rich Black guys,” she said.

Tweets have emerged in Obumseli’s name in which he denigrates Black women. He had more than 20,000 tweets on his page, and the controversial tweets are old.

A GoFundMe page was set up to help Obumseli’s family. It reads,

On April 3, 2022, 27-year-old Christian Toby Obumseli was murdered in Florida a week before his 28th birthday. It is unconscionable to make sense of our new reality. That someone’s selfish act ripped Christian away from this world. It is not enough to say we are shocked and hurting–We are utterly devastated. His murder leaves many unanswered questions and creates a void that can never be fixed or filled. Not even with time.

Christian was extremely compassionate with a desire always to uplift those around him. He did not deserve for his life to be cut short by a heinous act of violence. We will never forget his infectious smile that could light up any room or his caring spirit. He will forever be remembered by his grandmother, mother, father, brother, extended family and friends.

Please keep the entire family in your prayers through this unimaginable, tragic time. Amid our deep grief, we also face a long road to justice for Christian. We humbly ask our community to come together and support us during this time. We need financial assistance to cover postmortem transportation of the body, funeral arrangements, attorney fees, litigation, counseling, and bills for the family as we seek justice for our beloved brother and son. No amount is too small.

All funeral arrangements will be shared at a later time. While we are still processing, we can only find comfort that Christian is resting in the arms of the Lord.

“We’ve seen her hit him. I’ve never seen him hit her,” Ashley Vaughn, a friend of the couple, told News 10.
