Shannade Clermont — one half of the Clermont twins, and of Bad Girls Club and YEEZY Season 6 campaign fame — has been arrested and charged with fraud and identity theft.

Specifically, according to the Southern District of New York, last year she is alleged to have visited a man's apartment for a “prostitution date” and stolen the details of two debit cards, which she used to pay her rent and phone bills, and pay for flight tickets and “thousands of dollars of clothing and other merchandise.”

And just how is she alleged to have got access to the guy's card information? The man was found dead of a drug overdose the morning after their "date," with the cards still in his wallet.

Per the the Southern District's press release, Clermont is alleged to have used the card details in the months after the man's death, racking up more than $20,000 in purchases. She also set up and used a fake email account in his name to fool third parties. She is then said to have used this email account to register a Western Union account and transfer $1,000 from his bank account to her own.

United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey S. Berman said, “As alleged, Shannade Clermont, a former cast member of the Bad Girls Club, lived up to her reality series reputation. She allegedly stole debit card information from a man found dead — the victim of a drug overdose — in his Manhattan apartment and used his identity to make tens of thousands of dollars in fraudulent purchases. Thanks to the skilled investigative work of the NYPD, Clermont’s new reality is federal prosecution for her alleged nefarious conduct.”

Clermont has been charged on three counts: conspiracy to commit wire fraud (maximum prison term 20 years), access device fraud (maximum 15 years), and aggravated identity theft (mandatory two years).
