The 25-year-old, known as Courtney Tailor on social media, is accused of stabbing Christian Obumseli, 27, to death – but insists she was the victim.
The ONLYFANS star Courtney Clenney has abandoned a request to dig up her boyfriend’s body.
The influencer filed a request to dig up her boyfriend’s corpse in the hope of proving her innocence.
Her lawyer, Frank Prieto, had planned on making a request on Clenney’s behalf for Mr Obumseli’s to be dug up and be inspected by an outside medical expert.
He was expected to appear in court on Friday to ask prosecutors to allow an “inspection” of Obumseli’s body in a bid to prove the model acted in self-defense – but those plans have since been quashed.
Prieto told The Sun Online: “Courtney was the victim of abuse here and we wanted our expert to conduct an independent examination; however, our request was withdrawn when we were informed that the decedent was buried in Dallas, TX.”

It is unclear at this stage whether the attorney plans on refiling for the body to still be dug up now they have discovered it is buried in a different jurisdiction.
Clenney was arrested in Hawaii on Wednesday and pictured sobbing in a disheveled mugshot as the investigation into Obumseli’s April 3 death continues.
The model was detained and taken to a mental institution and is set to face a second-degree murder charge in April over the death of Mr Obumseli.

The online star initially claimed self-defense but her arrest was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon by her defense lawyer Frank Prieto.”
He said: “I’m completely shocked, especially since we were cooperating with the investigation and offered to voluntarily surrender her if she were charged.”
It comes after disturbing video of Clenney was exposed, showing her allegedly attacking Obumseli in an elevator just a month before he was murdered.

Clenney is expected to be transported back to South Florida, where Obumseli was murdered earlier this year, following her arrest in Hawaii earlier last week.
According to Local10, there was allegedly a history of domestic violence and other issues on the part of both Clenney and Obumseli.
Security at the apartment building where they resided had reportedly documented various incidents between the two.
The couple had reportedly separated in March, with Clenney kicking Obumseli out of their apartment, but had resumed their romance in early April.
The Sun exclusively revealed Clenney’s mounting legal problems as a bond forfeiture warrant for her arrest was issued in Travis County, Texas, on July 1.
She was initially booked in Texas on September 16, 2020, for driving while intoxicated, and her bond was set at $8,000.
Filings from Travis County show Clenney had retained attorney Meril Anthes, and a pre-trial conference hearing was moved to June 24, 2022, which she appears to have skipped.
