Hollywood star ‘faces arrest for sex cult’
SMALLVILLE actress Allison Mack and Battlestar Galactica alum Nicki Clyne reportedly chased after a police car carrying Keith Raniere when the alleged cult leader was arrested in Mexico on charges of running a violent sex cult.
Now, Mack is reportedly the next in line to be arrested.
An emaciated and frenzied-looking Mack can be seen in mobile phone footage, obtained by Frank Parlato of the Frank Report, of Raniere's arrest. (Parlato used to do PR for the alleged cult before starting a website to expose them).
"Allison Mack expected to be arrested next," he wrote in artvoice.com, saying she is an unnamed co-conspirator in the Raniere case.
"She started as a slave and she became a slave master," Parlato claims. "Her nickname among defectors is 'Pimp Mack.'"
A woman believed to be fellow actress Clyne is reportedly heard in the video saying "We're going to follow them. Let's go, you guys." after Raniere is arrested.
Raniere was arrested while on the run in his $10,000-a-week Mexican villa this week.
Raniere has been charged with sex trafficking from within a so-called self-help group called NXIVM (pronounced nexium).
Within that group there is reportedly a secret society called DOS or The Vow, which Mack and Clyne are said to be a part of, in which women become sex slaves and have Raniere and Mack's initials (KR and AM) branded above their genitalia.
Sarah Edmonson, told The New York Times, she was held down by a number of women and branded after being made to say "Master please brand me, it would be an honour."
Founded by Raniere in 1998, NXIVM offers "programs that provide the philosophical and practical foundation necessary to acquire and build the skills for success, it's website reads.
Based in Albany, New York, around 160,000 joined the group led by Raniere, who is known within its circles as "Vanguard", including Mack, Clyne and Dynasty star Catherine Oxenberg's daughter, India.
HOW ACTRESS BECAME INVOLVED IN CULT
Mack was reportedly introduced to the self-help group around 2006 by her Smallville co-star
Kristin Kreuk, the New York Post reports
Kreuk, who portrayed the young Superman's love interest, Lana Lang, signed up, but got out before female acolytes began getting forcibly branded.
"Kreuk had come first, sometime around late 2005, early 2006," said Frank Parlato, who first broke the story, in June, of women being forcibly branded as part of the NXIVM "sorority."
"Kreuk brought in Allison" soon afterwards, said Parlato.
Mack played Clark Kent's starry-eyed blond pursuer, Chloe Sullivan.
"Allison was used, as was Kristen, as a lure to bring in other women because of their celebrity status," he said.
Kreuk severed ties with the group in 2012, soon after the Albany Times Union wrote of allegations that Raniere had sex with underage girls.
But Mack stayed on and, according to Parlato, helped come up with the idea of sizzling the "brand" into initiates' skin, near their groins, as they were held down.
"Kreuk was also in the inner circle, but branding was a later addition to Raniere's abuse of women," Parlato said.
Spokespeople for Kreuk and Mack did not respond to requests for comment.
