Fans of the popular TV Series ‘Smallville‘ remember the character ‘Chloe’ played by actress Allison Mack. According to news outlets today she is being charged with running a sex cult which has been responsible for abusing many young women. Check out all the details released so far in the story below and share your thoughts AFTER THE JUMP!
Last month, the New York Times broke the story about a secret sorority that brands women, puts them on starvation diets and beats them if they don’t recruit enough ‘slaves’. The group, called DOS, is reportedly a secret society for the highest ranking female members within the self-help group NXIVM. To outsiders, NXIVM is just a run-of-the-mill self-improvement group, offering classes that teach the answers to living a successful and fulfilling life. But ex-members told the Times that NXIVM functions as a cult for people at the high levels of the group, who have dedicated themselves full-time to founder Keith Rainere and his teachings. On Wednesday, a former spokesman for the group, Frank Parlato, told The Sun that an ‘Emmy Award-winning actress’ is a ‘key recruiter’ for DOS. While The Sun did not name the actress, DailyMail.com can reveal that she is Allison Mack, who played Clark Kent’s sidekick Chloe Sullivan on the long-running CW series Smallville.
Ex-members have detailed how only the most loyal NXIVM female members are offered the ability to try out for DOS. In order to join, prospective new members must allegedly turn over damning personal information as a show of trust. But ex-members say that information is actually used to keep members from speaking out about the horrifying reality of the group.
DOS operates as a master-slave hierarchy, with Raniere at the top and Mack as his immediate subordinate. From there, Mack has several slaves of her own who are then ordered to recruit a group of slaves themselves, and it spreads down from there like a pyramid scheme.
Women in the group are allegedly kept on a 500- to 800-calorie a day diet because Raniere likes thin women and believes fat ‘interferes’ with his energy levels, Parlato claims.
Slaves must immediately answer their masters any time they text or call them, and if they do not recruit enough slaves of their own, they are beaten with a paddle on their buttocks.
The Frank Report alleges that it was Mack who introduced corporeal punishment to the group.
When women are deemed worthy to enter the group, they are ordered to strip at an initiation ceremony and then branded with a symbol that includes both Raniere and Mack’s initials.
