Former Smallville star Allison Mack facing 15 years to life imprisonment for sex trafficking cult

Recommended Posts

So this was odd news to wake up to.

 

The 35-year-old was arrested for her role as a co-conspirator in a sex cult called Nxivm, which is being prosecuted for sex trafficking and forced labor.

 

From the Guardian:

 

Quote

Smallville actor Allison Mack, who played Chloe Sullivan on the hit CW series for 10 seasons, has been arrested for her involvement in a sex cult called Nxivm. She is due to appear in court in Brooklyn on Friday.

The group’s leader, Keith Raniere, was arrested for sex trafficking and forced labor last month. He was extradited to the United States from Puerto Vallarta in Mexico and is currently being held at a federal prison in Oklahoma City without bond.

 

Mack, who is listed “Co-Conspirator 1” in the criminal complaint, was last seen chasing after the cop car that was hauling Raniere away from the villa in Mexico where he had been hiding. Mack, 35, is said to have acted as a key recruiter for the group while also acting as a direct “slave” to Raniere, with whom she had a sexual relationship.

 

Nxivm, which is reportedly run out of a townhouse in Halfmoon, New York, was publicly branded as a “self-help group”. Raniere, 57, allegedly blackmailed women into becoming sex slaves and branded their skin with his and Mack’s initials. Federal authorities said that Raniere had a “rotating group of 15 to 20 women with whom he maintains sexual relationships”.

Prosecutors allege that Mack lured women into a secret society within Nxivm known as “The Vow”, which was called a “women’s mentorship group”. She reportedly forced the potential entrants to provide “collateral” in the form of compromising photos or statements. Mack also reportedly forced the women to have sex with Raniere, who was her own “master”.

“As this pyramid scheme continues to unravel, we ask anyone who might have been a victim to reach out to us with information that may further our investigation,” FBI assistant director-in-charge William F Sweeney said in a statement. If convicted on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy, Mack faces 15 years to life in prison.

 

She was always my favourite on the show. Allegedly Kristina Kruek may also have been involved in the sex cult but is currently denying any involvement.

I remember reading about this. Apparently Kreuk was married to Raniere at one point?

Crazy stuff.

Kreuk was in the cult but left a few years ago. I think someone else Smalleville-related was too...

Smallville doesn't have much luck with its supporting actors staying out of jail. I think the guy who played Pete Ross was in prison for a bit due to drugs.

Who’d have thought Tom Welling would do best out of the cast. All he did was get fat for a while.

He was?

 

Remember when he was going to be the next big thing?

 

He was one of Stallone's boys.

I wouldn't say "next big thing". He just happened to clearly be the best actor on that show.

The Actress Nicki Clyne from Battlestar Galactica seems to be involved somehow, is that who you are thinking of?

So this Raniere got Mack, Kruek AND the battlestar girl to join his sex cult?

 

Who is this guy? A really good hypnotist or maybe the best looking dude in the world or something?

There is a bunch of videos on youtube of Allison Mack interviewing this guy on the channel Keith Raniere Conversations. He comes across as a second rate cult leader and she comes across as smitten and having more than a few screws loose. Apparently he used to run pyramid schemes before he got into sex cults as well.

It was revealed during court testimony of actress Allison Mack that the two are married. Clyne has been tied to the organization NXIVM and its subsect leader, Keith Reniere, in the recent past. She has not been formally charged with a crime as of the time of her wife's arrest.[2]

 

 

So Allison Mack is married to Nicki Clyde... :huh:

Sex cult sources: Allison Mack ‘married’ Actress Nicki Clyne to defraud US Immigration

 

Sources inside NXIVM told Artvoice that reputed sex cult leader Allison Mack ‘married’ former actresses/sex slave Nicki Clyne in order to keep Clyne in the USA.

Clyne is a Canadian citizen and was having difficulties fulfilling visa obligations.  Sources said India Oxenberg – daughter of Dynasty TV star Catherine Oxenberg – witnessed the nuptials.

 

Up until cult leader Keith Raniere’s flight from the USA – and leading to his arrest in Mexico last week  – Mack, Clyne and Oxenberg lived together in Mack’s townhouse near Albany, NY.  Raniere lived nearby in a home with two other women.

 

Mack, Clyne and Oxenberg are branded on their pubic region with initials of Raniere now in federal custody awaiting arraignment before a federal magistrate in Brooklyn on sex trafficking charges.

 

Mack – who is second in command – has her initials burned on the pubic regions of the NXIVM slave women, alongside Raniere.

“The reason for the fake marriage is that Clyne is Canadian and Mack a US citizen,’ said a source close to both women.

 

According to another source:

Marriage is actually a common way for NXIVM foreign nationals to stay in Albany with Keith before he fled the USA. Women from Mexico, US, the U.K. and Canada played this game. Marry someone when your visitor or work visa runs out! And Nicki had a O-1 visa as a Canadian. That means she was bringing worth to the US entertainment economy. But Keith told her not to work in acting and she hasn’t done much film or TV work since Keith got his hands on her so she probably couldn’t reapply for the same visa when the original one wore out. But since gay marriage is legal now and she and Allison are both devout followers, it made sense. It’s a great solution.

I’m sorry but Allison Mack is not a nice woman. Period. So many people think oh poor Allison she’s been sucked in and abused. Nope. She has not. She is definitely being used but she is also without a doubt a malignant abuser. Fuck you Allison Mack. You have ruined lives.

It's just too crazy and getting weirder by the day. 

 

I used to have such a crush on Allison Mack.

On the plus side, her never getting work again means I'll stop reading her name as "Alex Mack".
