More about Christian's death and Courtney's arrest
Law enforcement reported that they received a call from Courtney Tailor at 5 PM on Sunday. The couple lived in a luxury apartment building in Miami, Florida. They found Obumseli’s shoulder stabbed. He was taken to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
While the 25-year-old model was detained at the police station, she threatened to kill herself, which led to her being “Baker Acted.” This allows mental health professionals and judges to commit a person to a mental health facility for 72 hours. They can do so if the person displays violent or suicidal tendencies.
It remains unclear whether the influencer has been released from the mental health institution. At the time, Tailor did not face any charges for her boyfriend’s death.
