Skip to comments.Allison Mack allegedly starved ‘Dynasty’ star Catherine Oxenberg’s daughter India (Nxivm trial)

The daughter of Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg spent a year on a 500-calorie-a-day diet while in Nxivms secret sex cult, a former slave testified Friday.
Ex-member Nicole testified that Smallville actress and alleged slave master Allison Mack was so manipulative, shed threaten to starve Oxenbergs daughter India even further to ensure that Nicole remained obedient.
When India and I became close, they would use her to make me behave, Nicole explained during the sex-trafficking trial of accused Nxivm leader Keith Raniere.
Alison was trying to have [Oxenberg] get down to a certain weight, and they decided that goal weight was 107 pounds, Nicole said.
Previous witnesses have described how Raniere preferred his slaves skinny, sleep-deprived and compliant.
It was just really hard to watch, sometimes, Nicole sobbed as she recalled seeing Oxenberg struggle with her forced diet. It was tough on her.
Even when Nicole finally gathered the courage to leave the group, Mack tried to lure her back in, again using her friend.

Hard to believe that is the same girl who portrayed Chloe Sullivan on Smallville. She seemed so nice.
That cute face hid some dark thoughts, apparently.
Someone correct me if I’m wrong but it sounds like all these “slaves” were adults and willingly gave themselves up to this cult.
I didn’t hear anyone was abducted or threatened with violence to do anything.
Yes the cult leaders used psychological techniques to exploit people but so do marketers, salesmen and casinos
These are sick people but it sounds like it was pretty much voluntary...
Where is the criminality here?
So what? If some idiot won’t eat, because a Hollywood idiot says no... how can I possibly judge such dumbasser?
I saw an expose of this group. It’s much more than you may think.
I read the article and it sounds like they controlled people with blackmail and finances. However the material for blackmail and financial docs were provided willingly by the victims themselves. They WANTED the cult to have absolute power over their lives because they themselves felt they lacked the discipline to live free.
Terrible way to take advantage of weak people but what exactly was illegal?
“Yes the cult leaders used psychological techniques to exploit people but so do marketers, salesmen and casinos”
“Where is the criminality here?”
didn’t somebody get branded?
See if you can find any criminality here.
Thanks for that link. Bookmarking it.
Racketeering is the overall charge cult leader Keith Raniere is facing. The predicate acts for the racketeering charge include a litany crimes.
Involuntary servitude (slavery)
Illegal campaign donations (to hillary)
And there are some more.
The other five co-defendants all pleaded out before the trial started. Raniere is likely facing the rest of his life in prison.
I’ve been documenting the case since last year.
The trial has everything but media coverage. The cult had ties to hillary, Kirsten Gillibrand, and a host of NY politicians. Raniere started with a multi-level marketing scam back in Arkansas when Bill was governor and, when caught, bought himself a sweetheart deal. Around 1998 he moved to upstate NY, where he got another sweetheart deal from then-state attorney general Elliot Spitzer.
And yes. Raniere kept his slaves on very low-cal diets to keep them skinny and compliant. Did they do it willingly? Arguably.
There’s a reason only the inner circle got charged.

Maybe if somebody did a made-for-tv movie about it, people would care?
Thank you, derp media.
Do not forget that Senator Sex Cult, current Presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand, is closely tied to this group in many ways. The media will be working hard to keep this out of the headlines, but anyone from Albany knows that she is a big part of that story.
Either I killed the thread with facts, or everyone is off reading the whole tale of my reports?
Sorry about that, Simpson.
Thank you for posting. I think some good information came from this.
Pity the media is only covering the Oxenbergs and Allison Mack since they’re “stars”.
Oxenberg was trying to get her daughter out of the cult, but her daughter had already provided “collateral” to Mack and Raniere and was being blackmailed to stay.
The good news is she did get out. And I’m sure the investigators have talked to her.
Mentioned in my post 15. But there is MUCH more to this story.
If you have info on the Gillibrand involvement, I'd love to hear about it. FReepmail is fine. All I know is that her new step-mother who was her father's cousin got in first, then daddy got involved and worked for about four months as a consultant. Kirsten was sitting at the NXIVM tables at a hillary for senate fundraiser and knew the people there.
What I'm curious about is whether Kirsten simply was associated through Clare and Sara Bronfman because they were rich, or whether she had any real involvement in NXIVM.
Chloe was a favorite of mine - until the last two seasons. Her character did not just become darker, her acting became detached. I could not buy that she loved Oliver. Her truncated role in the final season was due to her choosing her cult over her career.
