EXCLUSIVE: Kanye West Model Shannade Clermont Used Dead Man’s Identity For At Least 4 Months, Charged Victim $400 For Sex
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports new details have surfaced surrounding Yeezy season six model and former Bad Girls Club star, Shannade Clermont. As previously reported, Shannade was arrested this week on federal fraud charges after investigators say she used a dead man’s debit card information to make over $20,000 in fraudulent purchases. The Clermont Twin was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, access device fraud and aggravated identity theft.
We’ve obtained exclusive court documents, detailing new information about the case. According to court docs, on the evening of January 31, 2017, Clermont and the victim allegedly agreed to meet up for sex at the victim’s home in New York at around 5:30 pm. The amount agreed upon was $400.
Clermont, allegedly using the alias “Audrey”, took an Uber to the victim’s home and had the doorman call up to the victim. Surveillance shows that Clermont remained at the victim’s home for about three hours before going home.
On the morning of February 1st, the victim was found dead in his home of an apparent drug overdose. Police uncovered his iPhone and wallet at the scene. In the wallet were two debit cards, which authorities say Clermont obtained the information for and used to make fraud purchases for months to come. As police continued to investigate the victim’s death, Shannade was reportedly using the victim’s debit card information to make dozens of unauthorized purchases. According to court documents, Shannade used the victim’s identity to make fraudulent purchases up until May 2017.
Based on the documents, Clermont made rent payments to her New York apartment, purchased airline tickets, paid a phone bill and also made multiple retail purchases that were shipped to her home. All of the online purchases were tied to Clermont’s personal email account, which she’s allegedly had since February 2012. She also used this same account to solicit more dates for prostitution.
Clermont is also accused of using the victim’s identity to create a fake email account in order to send herself a Western Union wire transfer of $1,000 in April, two months after he was found dead.
Shannade was released on $100,000 bail. Her charge of conspiracy to commit wire fraud carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, access device fraud carries a maximum sentence of 15 years and aggravated identity theft carries a mandatory consecutive minimum sentence of two years.
