Courtney Clenney was captured on surveillance video assaulting Christian Obumseli in the elevator of their luxury Miami apartment building just two months before she fatally stabbed him with a kitchen knife, authorities said Thursday.
In the footage, Clenney is seen repeatedly hitting Obumseli.
Some of the punches are to Obumseli’s head. He tried to push back and push her away, but Local 10 News has been told the video clearly shows Clenney as the aggressor.
The video is about one minute in length and was shown at Thursday’s press conference.
Attorneys believe the video helps show a pattern of abuse that ultimately led to Obumseli’s murder.

Clenney, who goes by Courtney Tailor on social media, was arrested Wednesday in Hawaii and is awaiting extradition to Florida.
The second-degree murder rap against the influencer comes after the victims’ family expressed outrage she had not been charged after claiming she had acted in self-defense.
Rundle said the evidence undermined her claims that Obumseli was the aggressor.
She told police that she had thrown the knife from 10 feet away – but the medical examiner determined that tossing the weapon from that distance could not have caused the fatal stab wound, according to authorities.
Hawaii County police assisted the U.S. Marshals Service with the arrest on the Big Island, where the influencer was in a rehabilitation facility for substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder, according to her attorney Frank Prieto.
