Who is OnlyFans and Instagram model, Courtney Tailor?
Tailor is accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death, although she does not face criminal charges at the time of publication. Her boyfriend Christian Obumseli’s family lawyer said Tailor, real name Courtney Clenney, stabbed him, reports Heavy.
Tailor is a fitness influencer and model. She’s popular on social media platforms such as OnlyFans and Instagram, where you’ll find photos of her in revealing clothing. Beyond her over two million followers on Instagram, the 25-year-old appeared in a 2015 music video for rapper G-Eazy‘s hit song “Me, Myself and I.” She also appeared in a couple of movies prior to that.

Today, she is best known for a video captured from a neighboring apartment building. The video shows her on the floor in handcuffs, covered in blood, while talking to the police.
What we know about the April 3 incident involving Courtney Tailor and Christian Obumseli
Obumseli recently moved to Miami from Texas and was living with Tailor in the One Paraiso apartment building in Edgewater. The 27-year-old worked for a software company and studied communication at Texas Tech, reports Heavy. Beyond this, not much is known about Obumseli or the tragedy that occurred between him and Tailor, which is still under investigation.
However, according to The Sun, neighbors say the couple frequently had intense arguments that required police involvement. Ashley Vaughn, a friend of the couple, said, “We’ve seen her hit him. I’ve never seen him hit her.”
Although Obumseli’s Instagram posts portray them as a loving couple, Tailor’s lawyer, Frank Prieto, says otherwise. He stated that she was defending herself at the time of the incident. Tailor also cited involvement with sex trafficking via her lawyer.
Obumseli’s family says this is not true. They set up a GoFundMe page in Obumseli’s honor and imply that Tailor is getting off easy because she is rich and white. However, some sources report a neighbor witnessing Obumseli hit Tailor a week prior to the incident.
Where does the case stand now?
Allegedly, when the police showed up at the apartment, Tailor began talking about killing herself, according to the Sun. Therefore, the police did not immediately file charges against Tailor because they detained her under the Baker Act.
The Baker Act is a Florida-based process that means law enforcement or others may force treatment for mental illnesses on someone who is a danger to themselves or others. Former Florida state representative Maxine Baker sponsored the act in 1971.
To be held on the Baker Act, a person must be mentally or emotionally impaired and unable to control their actions or understand reality, yet will not willfully submit to examination.
In a situation like this, the person, Tailor, would be held for 72 hours. A clinical psychologist or physician must examine the person during that time. After the examination, one of four things will happen: The person will be released if not charged with a crime, released for outpatient treatment, consents to voluntary placement in a treatment facility, or involuntarily forced by a circuit court to enter a treatment facility.
At this time, the police have not filed charges. The media recently spotted Tailor out with her father in Miami.
