Allison Mack, who was second in command of NXIVM - a sex slave cult that branded, raped, blackmailed, tormented, and extorted money from its female recruits - who was unrelentingly devoted to and in love with then cult leader and her superior Keith Raniere, married one of the cult’s female sex slaves after her arrest in 2017. This former slave (actress, Nicki Clyne) is defending NXIVM, Keith, and of course Allison Mack, who is still awaiting word on her 20-year prison sentence.
Mack and Ms. Clyne got married in 2017 with the group’s former publicist telling People magazine they did so on orders from Raniere.
*Allison’s prison sentence is assuming, of course, that she lives long enough to make it to prison, and that she doesn’t make any more deals exchanging vital information for further delays on her sentence. Either way, she’s pretty much living on borrowed time for the rest of her life anyway. But, she’s proven that she kinda likes it that way.
Actress Mack faces prison sentence for role when sentenced later this year. The wife of former Smallville star Allison Mack defends convicted NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere.
Nicki Clyne claimed she would not swap her experience in Raniere’s notorious group “for anything” as she appeared on CBS’s This Morning with fellow supporters.
“It’s very unfortunate the way that the word “NXIVM” has been applied and is now synonymous with the term “sexual cult,” which I don’t even know how to define what that is,” said Ms. Clyne.
“We’re not denying that certain things took place,” she said.
“There’s evidence that certain things happened. How they happened, why they happened and why certain people chose them, that’s a whole other conversation.”
Battlestar Galactica actress Ms. Clyne and four other supporters recently brought a petition demanding federal prosecutors in Brooklyn answer for alleged misconduct against the group’s leader. Raniere, a self-styled spiritual guru, was convicted last year on a string of charges that he created a secret master-slave group within NXIVM called DOS.
Authorities said at trial that women in the group were forced to have sex with Raniere, have his initials branded on their bodies and go on strict diets.
Raniere was convicted of seven counts of racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, attempted sex trafficking, forced labor conspiracy and wire fraud conspiracy.
Ms. Clyne, who has not been charged with any crime, reportedly quit her job on the sci-fi show to follow Raniere’s group in upstate New York.
Her wife Allison Mack was a high-ranking member of the cult and has pleaded guilty to charges she was involved in the scheme to turn women into sex slaves for Raniere.
Mack is still awaiting sentencing on two racketeering charges, which could each carry a maximum prison sentence of 20 years.

Nicki Clyne is not denying that certain things took place? Rape, branding, blackmail, programming, and embezzlement took place, cupcake. Let's get real, here.
I love that Nicki Clyne has been a member of NXIVM for 13 years, that she is defending Allison Mack and Keith Raniere, but she proudly waves her 'Black Lives Matter' flag as if she is not part of a modern day sex, rape, slavery, programming, and embezzlement cult. (To say nothing of branding skin and forced marriages)
"We’re not denying that certain things took place"? Well gee, thank you so much for that admission. That is SO big of you, Nicki. I guess we can all go home now.
Good LORD! This is so f---ed up I can hardly see straight. Okay next subject. This garbage need not take up any more of my day. Shake it off!
