A social media model accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend in their luxury Miami condo is heard screaming and cursing at him and using racial slurs in newly released recordings.
They're part of the case against Clenney, who's facing a second-degree murder charge in the stabbing, and were released Wednesday after a records request by NBC 6.

The recordings, presumably made by Obumseli on his phone, show little video but capture audio of several arguments between the couple.
"Decide whether or not you're done gaslighting me," Clenney tells Obumseli in one of the recordings.
"Courtney, that’s a f---ing threat," Obumseli responds. "I apologized but you hit me."
"Shut the f--- up b----," Clenney whispers back.
In another recording, Clenney calls Obumseli, who was Black, the n-word multiple times, and tells him to "man up b----."
Clenney seemed to be angry over the fact Obumseli said hello to another woman on a bike ride and didn't tell her about it afterwards.
"Shut up and let me slap you, dumb a--!" she later says in the recording, then yells at him to find her phone. "Find my f------ phone and charge it!"
In response to the recordings, Clenney's attorneys released a statement Wednesday.
"She’s not going to trial for her lifestyle, her previous arguments, or recorded rants. She is going to trial for defending herself against a violent struggle with her ex-boyfriend for which she feared for her life; Courtney is a victim of domestic abuse," the statement read. "Snapshots of 'evidence' without any context will prevent our client from receiving a fair trial, where the evidence will show that Courtney acted in self-defense."
Obumseli, 27, and Clenney, 26, had moved to South Florida from Texas in January 2022. Clenney, who went by the name Courtney Tailor on social media including OnlyFans, has more than 2 million Instagram followers.
Miami-Dade prosecutors said the two had been "involved in an extremely tempestuous and combative relationship" that culminated in the April 3 stabbing in their unit at the One Paraiso condo building on Northeast 7th Avenue in Edgewater.
New photos also released Wednesday show the bloody crime scene investigators found in the apartment. They also show Clenney's body covered in Obumseli's blood.
A 911 call made by Clenney after the stabbing and released last month captured some of Obumseli's last moments.
"I'm going to die. I can't feel my arms," Obumseli can be heard saying in the background during the call. "I can't feel my arms."
"My boyfriend is dying of a stab wound!" Clenney said in the call. "Please God, please. Come save my boyfriend!"
Prosecutors said that Obumseli was the victim of domestic violence, but Clenney's attorneys have said she was the victim of an abusive relationship and that she stabbed him in self-defense.
The release of the 911 call came after the release of a Miami Police bodycam video that shows officers responding to the condo building after a reported domestic dispute between Clenney and Obumseli just two days before the stabbing.
Clenney could be heard saying she wants a restraining order against Obumseli.
"How can I make myself first because I know him and he would do it," she tells the officers. "I have not always been the victim but right now I'm a freakin' victim, I'm scared to walk my dogs."
At a news conference shortly after Clenney's arrest, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle showed surveillance footage of the couple engaged in a violent encounter in the building's elevator on Feb. 21, about a month after they moved in.
"It certainly appears that the defendant was aggressively attacking Christian," Fernandez Rundle said.
Clenney remains behind bars without bond in Miami-Dade while she awaits trial.
