TLC’s Cheer Perfection Star Arrested for Alleged Rape of a Minor
Fans of TLC’s cheerleading reality show Cheer Perfection were rocked today when one of the show’s stars, Andrea Clevenger, 34, was arrested on suspicion of raping a 13-year-old boy.
Andrea, who appears alongside her tween daughter Kylie on the show, had two felony warrants issued for her arrest this morning (January 14): one for rape, and one for engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in a visual or print medium. She surrendered to authorities soon after the charges were filed.
TMZobtained the documents, which state that the anonymous teen alleges that Andrea had him remove his pants at her home, before climbing on top of him and engaging in intercourse. In addition, he says the interactions continued outside of the incident, with the pair engaging in oral sex in her car on two occasions. He also claims that multiple sexually explicit text photos were sent back and forth.
The docs explain that authorities were called in November after the boy’s parents saw the photos. Andrea has now been released on bond, but she is required to wear a GPS monitoring device.
So far, TLC has chosen not to comment.
