Kristin Kreuk is not a sex recruiter!
Just days after cult leader Keith Raniere was arrested in Mexico — following a series of sex trafficking and forced labor charges — the Smallville actress took to Twitter to eliminate the rumors that she was a key member of the sick group.
“When I was about 23, I took an Executive Success Programs/NXIVM ‘intensive,’ what I understood to be a self-help/personal growth course that helped me handle my previous shyness, which is why I continued with the program,” Kreuk, 35, wrote this Thursday. “I left about five years ago and had minimal contact with those who were still involved.”
Kreuk’s statement came after the New York Post reported she was in charge of luring naïve women into Raniere’s den of horror, only to have him “brainwash” them, brand them with his initials and turn them into his sex slaves.
“The accusations that I was in the ‘inner circle’ or recruited women as ‘sex slaves’ are blatantly false,” the livid actress added in her statement. “During my time, I never experienced any illegal or nefarious activity. I am horrified and disgusted by what has come out about DOS.”
While Kreuk did not discuss the recent NXIVM rumors about her costar, Allison Mack, she did address the fact that the so-called “self-help” group has now turned into an underground sex cult.
“Thank you to all the brave women who have come forward to share their stories and expose DOS; I can’t imagine how difficult this has been for you,” she concluded in her Twitter statement. “I am deeply disturbed and embarrassed to have been associated with NXIVM. I hope that the investigation leads to justice for all of those affected.”
