How These ‘Smallville’ Stars Got Sucked Into A Startling Cult Scandal

Published

on

Smallville fans were recently shocked to hear that two of the show’s stars had been lured into a seriously disturbed cult! Allison Mack and Kristin Kreuk have been accused of heinous crimes including sex trafficking and branding other women. Read on to see how these women were coerced into entering this cult.

Self-Help Or Self-Righteous?

Years ago, Mack and Kreuk became a part of NXIVM (pronounced “nexium”), a proclaimed self-help organization. It teaches that “ethical people” should be in charge of the majority of the world’s money so that we can all survive. Its founder, Keith Raniere, apparently used his leadership position to have sex with other women in his organization, including minors. The unbelievable story would soon come out and tear everything down!

Snagging Famous Members

Much like Scientology, NXIVM recruited some celebrities to bring awareness to the organization and attract other members. Kreuk herself became a part of NXIVM in the mid-2000s, while Mack, following Kreuk’s lead, reportedly joined in 2008. Though she entered later in the game, Mack was said to be highly involved with NXIVM, impressing officials in the organization.

A Heavy Hitter

Mack was reportedly extremely loyal to NXIVM and used her platform to promote the “good works” that the organization was doing. She became a highly-respected leader and moved up the ranks in several groups under NXIVM. One of those included Jness, an alleged female empowerment group which she pushed heavily on her website and YouTube channel. But was she really doing work to inspire women, or ultimately break them?

Denying It All

Much like Mack, Kreuk was committed to NXIVM and its allegedly beneficial programs…at first. She wanted to break free of her shyness and thought the group would be a good place to help. Then she reportedly discovered allegations of Ranier’s sexual encounters in 2012 and made the decision to leave. Others in the organization claimed that both she and Mack knew the whole truth, and even recruited women to join for Raniere’s own benefit. Kreuk heavily denied the charges.

Sent To The Slammer

The alleged cult leader Raniere was arrested in March 2018 in Mexico. The following month, Mack was also arrested for her alleged involvement along with other members. The charges were sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy. Though both Kreuk and Mack might have entered the organization with good intentions, something clearly went horribly wrong along the way.
