MANHATTAN, NEW YORK
A former cast member of the reality show “The Bad Girls Club” and model in multiple Kanye West “Yeezy” campaigns, has been arrested for allegedly stealing a dead man’s debit card and racking up tens of thousands of dollars in charges.
People Magazine (@people) reported, 24-year old Shannade Clermont has been charged with wire fraud, access device fraud, and aggravated identity theft. Clermont is facing some serious charges and her case is being tried in federal court. Clermont is currently free on a $100,000 bail.
Clermont allegedly met up with the victim for a “prostitution date” that was negotiated between both parties for a $400 fee. During their time together, Clermont allegedly lifted two of the man’s debit cards from his wallet. The man was found dead in his Manhattan apartment the day after his date with Clermont from an apparent drug overdose. It’s not clear if the man died before or after Clermont left his apartment, but his death has not been ruled suspicious and Clermont has not been charged with any crimes related to his death.
Clermont racked up over $20,000 worth of charges on the debit cards. Her expenditures included airline tickets, online clothing shopping, and paying her rent and cell phone bills. Clermont also reportedly opened an email account in the deceased card holder’s name. She used that email account to open a Western Union account that she used to send money from the card holder’s account directly to her.
Prosecutors say they have text messages between Clermont and the victim in which they arranged the price. Clermont is half of “The Clermont Twins” of Instagram fame. The pair have hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers and post their lavish lifestyles to their accounts. Shannade Clermont is facing a total of 35-years in prison if found guilty of all charges.
