More horrific details have emerged in the bizarre story of Smallville star Allison Mack – that seems to confirm some Hollywood conspiracy theories – and her alleged treatment of sex slaves that she supposedly recruited into the NXIVM cult. Radar Online is reporting that Mack was “deep” into her role as master within the cult, whose ringleader was Keith Raniere, and they are both facing sex trafficking charges.
The accusations against NXIVM include sexual abuse, brainwashing, and threatening and blackmailing women. They also allegedly branded women with Raniere’s initials. A source who spoke with two of Mack’s alleged slaves describes the actress’ treatment of women as “incredibly intimidating, cruel, and punitive.”

There are also accusations that Mack made terrifying threats to the women who were beneath her, and the slaves said that she threatened to release information she had gathered about them if they didn’t sleep with the cult leader.
However, a former roommate of Mack’s thinks that the 35-year-old may be a victim of brainwashing herself because she believes that sex with Raniere can heal women.
“I don’t think she was actually trafficking girls,” the unnamed roommate revealed. “It doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve punishment, but I think she had drunk enough Kool-Aid to really believe that these girls were going to save the world with [Raniere’s] super-sperm.”
Raniere allegedly told the women in the cult that they “were all connected via his sperm.” And, Mack told the slaves that they made a “lifetime vow” to NXIVM. There are also allegations that the Smallville star “berated” the slaves and told them “they were worth nothing.”
The female slaves also claim that Mack told them she would destroy them if they refused sex with Rainere, dated other men, or attempted to ditch the group, and Mack called her group of slaves a “slave pod.”

Mack apparently found NXIVM after she attended a women’s empowerment seminar back in 2006 where they told her that Raniere could help her acting career. Now, twelve years after that first meeting, federal prosecutors in New York have indicted Mack on three felony counts of sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit forced labor.
The allegation is that NXIVM provided cover for a brutal, coercive sex ring that required its subjects to turn over sexually compromising pictures as insurance against breaking with the group. The FBI arrested Rainere and Mack after a six-week manhunt that led them to a lavish $10,000 a week compound in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where the two had been staying with several other women.
Allison Mack posted a $5 million bond and is currently under house arrest at her parents’ home in California. Meanwhile, authorities are still holding Raniere in jail. Both defendants are scheduled to appear in court on June 13th.
