Courtney Clenney, the 26-year-old social media influencer with 2 million followers on Instagram, also known as Courtney Tailor online, has been charged with murder in the killing of her boyfriend in April, but she maintains it was in self-defense, according to the Miami Herald.

The Instagram and OnlyFans model has been charged with second-degree murder with a deadly weapon for the stabbing death of her boyfriend—crypto entrepreneur and Dallas social media personality, Christian “Toby” Obumseli—which occurred in the Miami high-rise they shared on April 3. Clenney was arrested and taken into custody on Wednesday in Hawaii, where her attorney, Frank Prieto, said she had been in rehab for substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder. She will be extradited to Miami-Dade County for trial.

Clenney’s arrest marks the end of a four-month investigation by Miami homicide detectives and prosecutors.

“I’m completely shocked, especially since we were cooperating with the investigation and offered to voluntarily surrender her if she were charged,” Prieto said. “We look forward to clearing her name in court.”

The arrest warrant remained sealed, said the Miami-Dade Attorney’s Office in a Wednesday press release.

Further information was released about the arrest at a Thursday afternoon press conference. At the presser, video evidence was shown of the couple in an elevator a month before the April 3 alleged murder, according to Miami’s WPLG Local10 News. In the video, Clenney is seen hitting Obumseli over and over, sometimes on his head, with Obumseli trying to push her away. Attorneys hope this evidence will show a pattern of escalating abuse.

Clenney’s attorney has maintained she killed Obumseli in self-defense and that she had been afraid for her life. Clenney claims that she only stabbed Obumseli because he attacked her, shoving her to the ground and taking hold of her neck, law enforcement officials told the Herald.

Clenney and Obumseli have a history of domestic violence incidences. Clenney was once arrested for domestic battery in Las Vegas during their relationship, and police had been called to their home in Texas on more than one occasion. The couple had only been living in Miami for a few months, where the management of their building had already made moves to evict them, according to the Herald.

Police said that they responded to multiple disturbance calls at the couple’s apartment over the past three months, WPLG reports.

Friends of the couple said they had a rough-and-tumble relationship. “We’ve seen her hit him,” a woman who identified herself as Ashley Vaughn told the WPLG back in April. “I’ve never seen him hit her.”

Together less than two years, the pair broke up and reunited more than once, according to the Herald. Miami police had also responded to a domestic disturbance call from their apartment on April 1—two days before the slaying.

On April 3, Clenney called 911 to report Obumseli had been stabbed, and he was taken to the hospital, where he died of a single stab wound to the chest. Police initially found that the couple had been involved in a physical fight before the fatal blow.

Obumseli’s brother Jeffrey called for Clenney’s arrest on Instagram, writing that she hadn’t shown “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,” he alleged.
