“High Fashion Shoplifter” sentenced and ordered to pay $19,000 restitution

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A man with multiple thefts this year of expensive fashion purses and perfume was ordered to pay almost $19,000 restitution to two stores by the end of next year.

Deandre Mabonga, 21, will also serve jail time and be on probation for five years, on a suspended two-year sentence and pay a $1,000 fine.

His restitution breaks down to about $16,000 to Dillard’s and $2,800 to Ulta Beauty on Lawrence Road.

One of his sentences for 82 days in jail was for an evading charge when police said he ran into an apartment when they tried to serve warrants for some of the thefts in May, and they had to kick in the door.

Mabonga’s latest arrest was in September when police responded to another perfume theft at Ulta and stopped a Lexus SUV

Inside Claudia Schiffer’s ’90s supermodel life

In 1987, Claudia Schiffer was dancing with some family friends in a nightclub in her hometown in Düsseldorf, Germany, when an agent approached the 17-year-old about becoming a model. A few months later, test shots in hand, she headed to Paris and into the exciting, glamorous world of fashion. She nabbed her first cover, for French ELLE, in 1989.

“It was an extraordinary period,” Schiffer told The Post about being one of the world’s top supermodels. “There was an incredible merging of … fashion, music, art and entertainment that made the era dynamic, exciting. The impossible became possible.”

Schiffer shot to international fame during the 1990s, appearing in a series of sexy and playful ads for Guess jeans, shot by her friend Ellen von Unwerth.

“I remember flying around the US to every major city for signings in department stores,” Schiffer recalled of her first campaign tour for Guess

Jay-Z will testify in NYC lawsuit over ‘reneged’ perfume deal

Rap mogul Jay-Z is expected to get grilled on the witness stand over claims he reneged on a deal to promote his own perfume.

The 51-year-old artist, whose real name is Shawn Carter, is named in a breach of contract lawsuit filed by Parlux Fragrances accusing him of failing to peddle the Gold Jay-Z fragrance line under a 2012 agreement.

Jury selection in the civil case begins Monday.

Parlux filed the lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court in 2016, claiming the “Empire State of Mind” rapper declined to push the perfume, including on “Good Morning America” and in Women’s Wear Daily. He’s also accused of refusing to do a promotional appearance at Macy’s.

The lawsuit claims it even pitched a contest involving a $20,000 perfume bottle with an 18-karat gold cap as the prize — only to have Carter reject the promotion and keep the prototype.
