An OnlyFans star charged with the fatal stabbing of her boyfriend has demanded that the corpse of her ex be dug up.
Courtney Clenney, 25, known as Courtney Tailor on her social media platforms, was arrested in Hawaii last month and is currently awaiting extradition to Florida.
The social media influencer will face a second degree murder charge for the alleged murder of her estranged boyfriend, 27-year-old Christian Obumseli, in April.

Her defense attorney, Frank Prieto, had confirmed that at the time of Clenney's arrest, she was at a rehab facility in Hawaii for substance abuse and post traumatic disorder – she has always denied the murder and claims that she acted in self defence.
And her attorney is set to take to the stand later today (Friday, August 19) and official request on his clients behalf that Obumseli's body be dug up and inspected by medical experts.
At the time of her arrest, Mr Prieto said: “I’m completely shocked, especially since we were cooperating with the investigation and offered to voluntarily surrender her if she were charged.
“We look forward to clearing her name in court.”

Clenney allegedly stabbed the 27-year-old Obumseli in the chest on April 3 following a fight at their luxury apartment building in Miami, as neighbours in the building, said they had a long history of domestic disputes.
Prieto claimed that Clenney was forced to stab Obumseli after he grabbed her by the throat following weeks of stalking the OnlyFans star.
Despite Prieto's claims that Obumseli was initially violent towards Clenney, a friend of the couple claimed that Clenney had been violent against her estranged boyfriend in the past – and video footage released earlier this week showed her allegedly hitting him in a lift.

“We’ve seen her hit him," Ashley Vaughn said. "I’ve never seen him hit her," he added.
There was video footage showing Clenney handcuffed and covered in blood in a bra after the gruesome fight that resulted in Obumseli being rushed to the hospital before he was confirmed to have died.
Clenney's arrest is four months after the case of Obumseli's death was revived after a previous boyfriend of Clenney claimed that she had to tried to stab him in a fight when they were together.
Larry Handfield, a lawyer that represents Obumseli’s family said, that the police had visited the couple on at least four occasions for domestic calls and with the victim never being taken into custody or charged.
