Chloe, honey, WHAT is going on?
I don’t know if you remember this story or not, but last year it was revealed that former Smallville actress Allison Mack was the second-in-command of the mysterious sex cult NXIVM (pronounced ‘nexium’) that was under investigation for extorting, beating, and branding its members.
After the group’s leader, Keith Raniere, was arrested this week and charged by federal prosecutors, sources now say Mack’s own arrest for sex trafficking is ‘imminent’. She was his live-in girlfriend who came up with the idea of holding down new members and burning a “brand” that combined Raniere’s initials and her own into their skin, near their groins, with a cauterizing pen. Fun! And a great way to keep track of your sex slaves! Literal branding game on point, girl!
Here’s what it looks like:
Mack works closely with co-NXIVM leader Clare Bronfman, an heir to the Seagram’s fortune.
Raniere, Bronfman and Mack are believed to have conspired to form and fund the brutal ‘master-slave cult’, which depends on blackmail to keep women in slavery.
Bronfman allegedly financed the entire operation. There has been no comment from the Bronfman family or their trustees.
According to Frank Parlato, who once worked as NXIVM’s publicist, “Allison was used as a lure to bring in other women because of their celebrity status”.
More on this story as it unfolds.
