An insatiable appetite for Kardashian-level fame is said to have driven The Clermont twins into a web of prostitution, a potential murder and- according to some reports- the arms of men and women who abuse animals.

The twins found fame on the series ‘The Bad Girls Club‘ and amassed a large social media following by enticing supporters with what seemed to be a life of luxury.
Alas, it now appears that said lifestyle was powered by prostitution, fraud and-much to the horror of many- soliciting animal-abusing perverts on “specialist” websites.
Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and James P. O’Neill, Commissioner of the New York City Police Department (“NYPD”), announced today the arrest of SHANNADE CLERMONT on charges of wire fraud, access device fraud, and aggravated identity theft. The Complaint charges that CLERMONT stole and fraudulently used the debit card information of a man she had visited for a prostitution date and who was found dead in his apartment the next morning from a drug overdose. CLERMONT will be presented today in Manhattan federal court before U.S. Magistrate Sarah Netburn.
U.S. Attorney 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.”
The NYPD and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York have been investigating the overdose death of a male individual (the “Victim”), who was found dead on the morning of February 1, 2017, in his apartment at 250 East 53rd Street in Manhattan, New York (the “Victim Apartment”). During the course of that investigation, law enforcement learned that CLERMONT visited the Victim for a prostitution date at the Victim Apartment the previous evening (January 31, 2017), and used the Victim’s debit card information to make or attempt to make more than $20,000 in fraudulent purchases during the months following the Victim’s death. Specifically, CLERMONT stole the information for two debit cards of the Victim found in his wallet in the Victim Apartment, and used that stolen debit card information for, among things, payments of her rent and phone bills, flight purchases, and several online purchases of thousands of dollars of clothing and other merchandise.
Shannade Clermont is also accused of using her dead customer’s credit card to sign up to a nefarious website she is said to have used to access more customers.
