'Smallville' actress facing arrest next for Upstate NY 'sex cult' NXIVM

Mack, 34, will reportedly face sex trafficking charges after allegedly working alongside former co-star, Emmy Award-winning actress Kristin Kreuk to recruit other women into the NXIVM cult.

Over the weekend, Keith Raniere, who led the group which posed as an organization that offered seminars for professional and personal advancement, was arrested for sex trafficking while in Mexico. The New York Post said that Kreuk and Mack had helped find women to become Raniere's sex slaves.

Kreuk set the record straight on Thursday, insisting she had no involvement in a secretive subgroup within NXIVM called "Dominus Obsequious Sororium", (DOS) in which women were allegedly coerced into serving as sex slaves to their male masters. Reports state that Mack has been running the cult while Ranier is detained and that she is more than likely to be arrested soon.

Following that report, Raniere allegedly left the USA for Mexico, according to the Daily Mail. After Kreuk's departure, Mack and Raniere allegedly carved their initials in burns on a sex workers body among other sadistic rituals. Sarah Edmondson, a Canadian actress who has spoken openly about her experience trying to leave the cult, supported Kreuk's statement.

"As alleged, Keith Raniere displayed a disgusting abuse of power in his efforts to denigrate and manipulate women he considered his sex slaves", Federal Bureau of Investigation official William Sweeney detailed, as reported by The Daily Beast.

Kreuk reveals that she was part of the freaky "self-help group" (pronounced "Nexium") from 2006 to 2012, along with fellow Smallville star Allison Mack (who's still active in the group). There he discusses Mack's involvement as a key player in the "secret society" of women, recruiting additional Slaves for the group and participating in their ongoing activities.

"The accusations that I was in the "inner circle" or recruited women as "sex slaves" are blatantly false", the statement continued. Kreuk played Clark Kent's brunette love interest Lana Lang, and Mack played the blonde in love with Kent, Chloe Sullivan.

"Thank you to all the courageous women who have come forward to share their stories and expose DOS; I can't imagine how hard this has been for you".

The Albany Times Union said that Mack is identified in the NY complaint against Ranier as an "unnamed co-conspirator".
