6:10 p.m. PT — Courtney’s attorney, Frank Prietotells TMZ… his arrest is shocking because they believe there is clear evidence of self-defense.
Her attorney claims Obumseli attacked and choked Courtney, leaving her “no choice but to meet force with force.”
CT’s attorney says she cooperated with the police investigation and offered to turn herself in if criminal charges were filed…another reason they are disappointed with her sudden arrest.
We’re told Courtney was seeking treatment in Hawaii for PTSD and other issues related to the case … and her attorney claims she is a victim of domestic violence and human trafficking.
OnlyFans Model Courtney Tailor was charged with murder in connection with the murder of her boyfriend earlier this year.
Tailor was reportedly arrested in Hawaii on Wednesday for second-degree murder. She was reportedly in rehab there but, according to her attorney, who spoke to the Miami Herald, she is expected to be extradited to Florida soon.
Her lawyer adds… “I am completely shocked, especially since we cooperated with the investigation and offered to hand her over voluntarily if she were charged. We look forward to clearing her name in court.”
The arrest comes months after authorities were investigating the stabbing death of Christian Obumseli – who was found dead in the couple’s Miami apartment. Tailor had previously told the cops she had in fact stabbed him with a knife…but insisted it was in self-defense.
Surveillance interior video shows Tailor, afterward, covered in blood from head to toe.
It initially seemed like her explanation worked, but now prosecutors apparently think there’s enough evidence to prosecute her. Obumseli’s family have always insisted they believe she killed him in cold blood.
Things weren’t going well for her, publicly, immediately after the incident. People dug up old interviews of her saying questionable things – and she was confronted in a hotel lobby by an outraged onlooker.
