Clare Bronfman’s Instagram showed constant travel and training … until the NY Times story appeared

She's been skiing high wide and handsome for many a year. But the worm has turned.

Based on photos available on her Instagram account, we know that up until recently, Clare Bronfman, vice president in charge of operations for NXIVM, lived a life of constant traveling.

Things changed for her recently when the New York Times revealed the horrifying secrets of NXIVM.

As the media and law enforcement look into allegations of her using her inherited wealth to fund brutality against women and retaliate against those who speak against Keith Raniere, Clare’s life is at a crossroads.

Her Instagram account gives a clue to the change.

Since V-Week 2017, Clare has not given any clue as to where she is on Instagram.

Attendance was poor at V-Week 2017, partly because of revelations of blackmail and branding in DOS [the subgroup of NXIVM] as reported in the Frank Report and by word of mouth among ESP members.

Following the Times story and the worldwide awareness of the horrid practices of the cult, she has posted only three photos — all three of photos of above the clouds.

Since the day when the New York Times [followed by hundreds of other media] revealed NXIVM to the world, she has only posted three photos. These photos are from an airplane taken above the clouds – with no hint of her destination or whether she is going away from, or towards her leader, Keith Raniere.

Makes one wonder who’s running the store front at home while Clare is galloping around the world. There is a pattern if one looks closely isn’t there Clare.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
