Smallville actress Allison Mack has been arrested for alleged sex trafficking, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The actress has recently come under public scrutiny for having ties to Keith Raniere, leader of the terrifying sex cult NXIVM. The cult has been exposed for luring in women who are ultimately abused, starved, blackmailed and threatened.
According to online reports, Mack has allegedly assisted Raniere in recruiting women into the cult. The actress, 35, is expected to be charged Friday, April 20 with sex trafficking.
She is due to appear in federal court in Brooklyn on Friday, reports say.
As Radar readers know, NXIVM is headquartered in upstate Albany, New York. Last month FBI agents found Raniere in a luxury Mexican villa, where he was reportedly hiding out following a New York Times expose about allegations he mistreated and sexually assaulted his female followers.
A number actresses are tied to the cult. Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg has said her daughter, India, 26, is a part of it. The women are allegedly branded with Raniere’s initials on their bodies.
Battlestar Galactica’s Nicki Clyne is reportedly a current or former member, while Mack’s Smallville co-star Kristin Kreuk strongly denied she was a member despite reports.
“The accusations that I was in the ‘inner circle’ or recruited women as ‘sex slaves’ are blatantly false,” she wrote in her statement regarding the matter on Twitter.
