Judge sides with OnlyFans model who murdered Nigerian boyfriend as contents of laptop are tossed out as evidence in murder case

Thursday, June 27, 2024 
-The case of OnlyFans model, Courtney Clenney, accused of murdering her boyfriend, Christian Obumseli, took a new turn in court on Wednesday, June 26.

The court hearing involved whether or not a key piece of evidence will be admitted in court.

The 28-year-old influencer, charged with murdering her boyfriend, Christian Obumseli, in their Miami high-rise on April 3, 2022, was pictured sitting in a Miami courtroom wearing a red jumpsuit.

In court Wednesday, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Laura Shearon Cruz ruled as to whether or not to exclude a key piece of evidence pertaining to the suspect’s parents.

"I am granting the defendant’s motion, in part as a motion to exclude [evidence], and I’m granting it," Cruz said.

The judge sided with Clenney’s defense in a computer hacking case against her and her parents, ruling that prosecutors breached an established legal principle in obtaining it.

Jude Faccidomo, an attorney representing Clenney, later spoke with reporters about Cruz’s ruling.

"They have entered the defense camp and invaded the attorney-client privilege," he said. "The next steps for the state’s attorney office is to dismiss the charges against my client and recuse themselves from the homicide case against Courtney Clenney."

Clenney is facing a second-degree murder charge in the fatal stabbing of Obumseli in the couple’s luxurious Edgewater condo.

Earlier this year, prosecutors also charged the suspect’s parents, Kim Dewayne and Deborah Clenney, along with their murder defendant daughter, for hacking Obumseli’s laptop.

State attorneys gained access to Dewayne’s iCloud account, where investigators found messages where the family was working with defense attorneys to try and guess passwords to access the laptop after Obumseli’s death.

Eventually, they got in.

Defense attorneys for the parents said the computer was a shared device between Clenney and Obumseli, and that the parents were authorized to access it.

The defense attorneys were not charged for breaking into the laptop. However, all three Clenney family members were.

"What happened was, they read through attorney-client privilege communications. That’s not proper,” said Faccidomo. “That’s a violation of their privacy rights, and because of that, Judge Cruz excluded any evidence they discovered because of it."

After a long battle, defense attorneys won on Wednesday after Cruz ruled the messages will be excluded evidence in the homicide case.

The next hearing in this case has been scheduled for sometime in August.
