Authorities said Clermont used stolen debit card information to try to obtain over $20,000 in order to pay her rent and phone bills, buy plane tickets, and make online purchases of clothing and other merchandise.

Prosecutors said that text messages between the victim’s phone and Clermont’s phone before the date show that they agreed the encounter would cost $400.

According to court docs, the late man sent her a text that read, ‘What do you want to do?’ To which she wrote, ‘I want to see you for the amount we agreed on. So you tell me. Let’s do $400.’

He responded, ‘OK. I’m a cool dude. You’ll have fun. What type of booze do you like? Wine!’

Prosecutors said Shannade she created an Exotic Doll email account on July 9, 2013, that they say Clermont ‘used to solicit dates for prostitution and other sexual encounters through various websites.’

The criminal complaint said she appeared on the Oxygen network’s reality series Bad Girls Club in 2015 along with her twin sister Shannon and amassed a large social media following. Her Twitter account listed over 100,000 followers.

Shannade also appeared as a model for Kanye West‘s Yeezy Season 6 fashion show earlier this year.

If convicted, the reality star could be looking at a 37-year prison sentence.
