Allison Mack married Battlestar Galactica's Nicki Clyne on orders from 'cult' leader in 2017: Reports
Allison Mack was married to Nicki Clyne long before her arrest with regard to the sex cult and Nicki was also a member of the cult.
Allison Mack, who is facing criminal charges for her connection with Nxivm’s sex trafficking ring, got married to Nicki Clyne last year in February, according to transcripts from federal prosecutors that were acquired by People. According to the group’s former publicist, the marriage was arranged by the group’s leader Keith Raniere, who has also been accused in the case along with Allison.
Just like Allison and Keith, Nicki is a member of Nxivm and it has been reported that since the arrest of its leaders, she has taken over the duty of handling the organization. According to journalist and blogger Frank Parlato, Nicki has quit her role in Battlestar in order to follow the footsteps of the leader. “Nicki has been in the cult for 12 years. She quit her regular role with Battlestar to follow Raniere," he told the magazine.
According to Parlato, Nicki happened to find herself trapped in the clutches of Keith and before she knew it, she was part of the organization herself. “A beautiful and talented actress, Clyne got into cult leader Keith Raniere’s clutches and became a branded slave of the alleged crime cult,” he wrote.
Parlato further noted that that “slaves” in the cult are branded with Keith’s initials. This comes after the 'Smallville' actress was granted bail on $5 million in sex trafficking case. Allison was released to serve home detention at her parents’ house in Los Alamitos, California.
The actress was charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy in a New York federal court. Following these, she was made to appear before Magistrate Judge Viktor V Pohorelsky at the Brooklyn courthouse in New York’s Eastern District. One of the reasons that Allison has been granted bail is to get information against Nxivm founder Keith Raniere.
Keith had been arrested last month in Mexico and remains in federal custody and a bail hearing for him is set to take place next week. In court, Allison's mother, Melinda Mack, was present to put up her home in Los Alamitos, Calif. as collateral for the bail. Along with this, property and a bank account owned by Allison Mack were also listed.
