Allison Mack could face jail time if found guilty of her alleged involvement with sex cult NXIVM. She could be arrested next especially after a video showed she was there when police arrested cult leader Keith Raniere.
The video shows Mack at the scene of Raniere's arrest in Mexico over the weekend. The footage shows the former Smallville star watching helplessly close by as police captured Raniere at the resort of Puerto Vallarta.
Mack allegedly chased down the cops. In the footage obtained by TMZ, a woman can be heard telling the actress to follow the police in a separate car. Raniere was reportedly immediately extradited to the USA following his arrest, where he faces charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit forced labor.
The video comes from former NXIVM publicist Frank Parlato, who has worked for years to document the inner workings of the New York-based sex cult, which claims to be a self-help organization. He blew the whistle on the group last summer at which Raniere then fled to Mexico. Parlato claimed that the women are blackmailed into sex slavery. They are also branded with Mack and Raniere's initials using a hot iron on their pubic region.
Now the 35-year-old American actress is facing her imminent arrest where she is bound to face the same charges as Raniere. Mack is said to be a high-ranking member of the cult. She is believed to be the second-in-command. Her nickname among defectors is "Pimp Mack."
Mack has been a member of the cult since 2006. She gave up her acting career following Raniere's advise and has since worked closely with NXIVM co-leader Clare Bronfman, the heir to the Seagram's fortune. Bronfman, Mack, and Raniere allegedly founded the sex cult with Bronfman financing the illegal operation.
Parlato claimed that Mack was completely enamored with Raniere. He said that she and Smallville costar Kristin Kreuk, who played Lana Lang in the series, were the cult's poster girls. They were used to recruit more women into the group. However, Kreuk got out of the group in 2009 before it became bizarre and involved anything sexual, according to former member Susan Dones.
Raniere has since denied the accusations and called them "disturbing" and reasoned that he prides of "non-violence" as one of his important values. NXIVM also issued a statement, saying they were cooperating with authorities and promised to clear Raniere's name.
As for Mack, the Smallville star has yet to comment on her involvement with the sex cult. She was living with Raniere at the $10,000-a-week villa in Mexico prior to his arrest.
