Smallville actress Allison Mack may face sex trafficking charges for allegedly being a sex cult leader's right-hand woman.

According to The Daily Mail, Mack and other members of the cult known as NXIVM (pronounced "Nexium") were filmed by a cameraphone scurrying around as their leader, Keith Raniere, was carried away by police in Mexico last weekend. Raniere co-founded a purported self-help group called Nxivm. The group was originally based in Albany, New York, but Raniere fled to Mexico previous year.

Mack, who played Chloe Sullivan on Smallville for many years, is reportedly a top official and recruiter in the cult, and is even said to have been the one to institute corporal punishment for "slaves" who "do not recruit enough slaves of their own".

A report from 2017 detailed these divisions by explaining, "DOS operates as a master-slave hierarchy, with Raniere at the top and Mack as his immediate subordinate..." Other members also reportedly include former "Dallas" star Catherine Oxenberg's daughter India Oxenberg, wealthy Seagram's heiresses Sara and Clare Bronfman, and "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" star Kristin Kreuk.

Apg Asset Management Nv Has Upped Position in Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM)
The shares of the company ( XOM ) staged the smart recovery as has roared back some 0.19% after stumbling to its new 52-weeks low. Trust Company increased its stake in Exxon Mobil Corp ( XOM ) by 2.14% based on its latest 2017Q4 regulatory filing with the SEC.

"Thank you to all of the courageous women who have come forward to share your stories and expose DOS", she wrote, referring to the name of the all-women, Nxivm "sorority" where in more recent years, the feds say, women would be extorted into having sex with Raniere and forcibly branded with his and Mack's initials.

Parlato adds that women are kept on strict diets of 500 to 800 calories because Raniere likes his women thin, and claims "fat" drains them of their energy.

The "brainwashed" 35-year-old was seen in video of the moments after Raniere was arrested, which was leaked to The Sun Online yesterday.

In fact, Kreuk says she is "horrified and disgusted by what has come out about DOS". "Her nickname among defectors is 'Pimp Mack'". He was extradited to Fort Worth, Texas on Monday and charged with sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy. It's unclear when he would make his first appearance there.
