NEW YORK – A former cast member of the reality TV series “Bad Girls Club” has pleaded guilty in New York to wire fraud.
Shannade Clermont entered the plea Thursday in Manhattan federal court.
Prosecutors say the 24-year-old Clermont stole debit card information from a man who died shortly after a “prostitution date” with her. They say she used more than $20,000 to pay her rent and phone bills, buy plane tickets and make online purchases of clothing and other merchandise.
Clermont told U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald she knew she was breaking the law when she used stolen debit cards to buy things on the internet.
Spectators to the plea included seven family members of the man she visited in January 2017. He was found dead of a drug overdose in his Manhattan apartment the next morning.
Prosecutors said that text messages between the victim’s and Clermont’s phones before the date show that they agreed the encounter would cost $400.
Clermont is one half of the Clermont Twins, with identical twin sister Shannon. The siblings, who frequently wear matching risque outfits, have amassed more than 900,000 followers on Instagram and were featured in Yeezy’s Season 6 campaign.
She appeared on Season 14 of the Oxygen network’s reality series “Bad Girls Club” in 2015, alongside her sister.
