NXIVM sex cult: What celebrities took part besides Allison Mack?
Former Smallville star Allison Mack isn’t the only celebrity to be lured into the NXIVM cult. While her involvement in NXIVM may have been the most severe, other celebrities were also recruited into the infamous MLM/sexual-predation group founded by Keith Raniere & Nancy Selzman.
At first, NXIVM was marketed as a self-help group offering seminars on personal & professional growth. Over time, Raniere used his newfound power to take advantage of NXIVM members. He was helped by Allison Mack, both of whom have since been charged with multiple counts including sex trafficking & forced labor.
While Allison Mack was a major influencer in NXIVM, here are some other celebrities you may know who were also involved with NXIVM.
Sarah Edmondson is a Canadian actress known for her television & voice work. She came into the spotlight when she publicly denounced NXIVM and participated in a New York Times exposé.
Edmondson finally left NXIVM in 2017. Her account can further be heard on the CBC podcast, Uncover, in which she discusses her experience in NXIVM.
Nicki Clyne is an actress best known for her work in Battlestar Galactica. She was recruited by Sarah Edmondson and stayed with NXIVM for thirteen years. It has been reported that Clyne left Battlestar Galactica in 2008 to pursue her life in NXIVM. Clyne married Allison Mack in 2017, but the marriage was alleged to be faked to evade U.S. immigration laws, since Clyne is Canadian.
Clyne was known to be a part of Keith Raniere’s inner circle and stayed with NXIVM even after reports of sexual abuse allegations came to light. Despite her status in NXIVM, Clyne was actually not charged as a co-conspirator.
Grace Park is also an actress, known for Battlestar Galactica and Hawaii Five-0.
Though she hasn’t revealed much about her involvement with NXIVM, Park did have contact with Keith Raniere. She can be seen in an interview with Raniere, similar to the infamous video with Allison Mack & Keith Raniere.
Park quietly left NXIVM in 2017, when Sarah Edmondson’s exposé was published.
Kristin Kreuk is an actress best known for her work on Smallville and Beauty & the Beast. According to reports, Kreuk originally introduced Allison Mack to NXIVM.
Since her connection to NXIVM was revealed, Kreuk tweeted that she left NXIVM years ago. Kreuk claimed she joined the cult believing NXIVM was a “self-help/personal growth course.” She emphasized that she didn’t know about and “never experienced any illegal or nefarious activity.”
