Actress Allison Mack, who has recently been arrested on charges of sex trafficking for an organization called Nxivm, has been released on a $5 million bond into the care of her parents and put on house arrest in their home in California.
The former Smallville actress was involved in what’s being described as a sex cult, founded by Keith Rainiere.
Upon her release, she was ordered to cut all ties with Nxivm. She will be wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet.
She is charged with two counts of sex trafficking and a count of conspiracy to commit forced labor for her actions and primary role in recruiting women to become members.
Rainiere has an extremely high IQ. He was a child prodigy who was reading by the age of 2 and could play concert level piano by the age of 12.
Reports are saying that in addition to teaching many new-age and enlighted principles, Rainiere carried out sexual relationships with numerous women. Rainiere has also been charged with having sexual relations with underage girls as well.
Many women were even branded near their private area with a symbol that looks like Keith Rainiere and Allison Mack’s initials.
Mack was thought to be the second in command in the cult and the two also presumably had an intimate relationship.
In this video, Mack is seen interviewing Rainiere where she gets emotional hearing him speak.
This cult has gone by many names for years and Mack’s involvement dates back at least six years.
What’s even more eery and scary is that Mack reached out to two very well known celebrities, Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson, via Twitter in both 2013 and 2016 in an effort to convert them.
Though she doesn’t name the organization she was involved in, it was her primary focus during those years.

@kelly_clarkson I heard through the grapevine that you're a fan of Smallville. I'm a fan of yours as well! I'd love to chat sometime.

It has also been reported that she recruited fellow costar on Smallville Kristin Kreuk to join the cult but Kreuk wasn’t as involved as Mack.
Mack was said to use the tactic of telling women that they were going to be apart of a progressive, womens only group to get them interested but the end result would be Rainiere becoming involved with the women through coercive means.
Even demanding incriminating photos as a way to blackmail them if they ever tried to leave the group.
