1:40 PM PT -- Courtney's lawyer, Frank Prieto, tells TMZ ... "The evidence makes it very clear the two were in a toxic and dysfunctional relationship, from which Courtney had asked for help from both police and her family to leave."
"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."
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."
OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney was recorded by her boyfriend during an argument, one in which she repeatedly called him the n-word months before she killed him ... according to cops who pulled the audio from his phone.
Courtney's slain BF Christian Obumseli was recording her outbursts with his cell phone in the months prior to his stabbing death, and the recordings are now evidence in the murder case against Courtney.
In one extremely heated argument, Courtney was hurling racial slurs as she screams and curses out Christian because he didn't tell her about saying hello to a woman they knew while riding a bicycle. You can hear what sounds like Christian apologizing and Courtney repeatedly calling him the n-word.
Cops say they recovered the audio recordings, first obtained by the Miami Herald, from Christian's phone as part of the murder investigation.
The audio clips also include Courtney screaming at Christian to "man up, bitch" and threatening to slap him as she demands he find her phone and charge it.
As we reported ... police body cam footage from 2 days before Courtney killed Christian shows her telling officers Christian attempted to attack her, and she's very emotional as she asks for a restraining order against him.
