The father of an OnlyFans starlet charged with murdering her boyfriend didn’t know about her R-rated career — and said Thursday her once-thriving online account has been shut down.
Financial adviser Kim Clenney defiantly backed daughter Courtney Clenney, testifying at her bail hearing she fatally stabbed Christian Obumseli in self-defense after prolonged mistreatment.
The 26-year-old beauty faces second-degree murder charges for plunging a knife into the cryptocurrency trader’s chest in April during a fight at their luxury Miami apartment.
The troubled model, who boasts 2 million followers on Instagram — raking in $3 million since 2020 — claims she killed Obumseli to save herself from his attack.
Prosecutors charge, however, she was the primary aggressor in the couple’s volatile union — and brutally stabbed him in a fit of anger.
“It was very toxic,” her father said of the relationship. “I knew from the beginning that he wasn’t treating her correctly…There were many things that a father who loves his daughter very deeply shouldn’t have to put up with.”
He told the court Clenney came undone after the killing and began boozing excessively.
“She had been traumatized for quite some time,” he said. “But especially after April 3. She was drinking heavily.”
The father said he had Clenney wire him $1,184,000 because she was no longer capable of managing her considerable assets.
“I thought the prudent thing to do would be to transfer the money into one of our dormant accounts, and safeguard it that way,” he said, countering prosecution claims that she moved the funds to hide them after the slaying.
Clenney said his daughter moved from Miami to Texas to be closer to them after the incident, and purchased a $1.35 million home near their residence. He also revealed Clenney made a $335,000 payment to the IRS soon after Obumseli’s death.
Asked if he was aware his daughter was starring on OnlyFans, Clenney paused.
“I didn’t know that for quite awhile,” he said.
Mouthing “I love you” to his daughter in court at one point, Clenney clashed with prosecutors who suggested he would lie for to save her from a murder conviction.
“I would not,” he said in a raised voice. “I resent that accusation.”
Prosecutors asked if he would feel safe living with Clenney if she were granted a bail package.
“I’ve lived with her a number of years growing up,” he said. “And she was there with us this year two to three months. There weren’t any problems. I have no concern about that.”
Prosecutors pressed the issue, quizzing him about a prior incident in Texas where Clenney had an argument with her mother and sister.
“I think the sheriff was called, but she was not a danger to those two people,” he responded.
The Miami State Attorney’s Office has released a trove of evidence they claim points to Clenney as routinely violent and abusive toward Obumseli.
She was recorded threatening Obumseli’s life just one month before the stabbing.
“I’m actually f—ing not having a good day where I actually, literally f—ing want to kill you,” she said in a March 5 cellphone clip obtained by WSVN. “But you don’t take me seriously,”
A judge will rule on Clenney’s request for bail in the coming days.
