Photos of Mack leaving court tell shocking story of her decline, pathetic fall

Allison Mack was a star when she met Keith Raniere in 2006. Within four years, he persuaded her to quit her hit TV show Smallville. A few years later she was nearly broke. He had fleeced her of most of her money.

She began a sexual relationship with him around 2012. He is 24 years her senior. He persuaded her to enter a curious relationship with him – she could be with no other man but he could have sex with a harem.

He persuaded her to begin DOS, a master slave group based on blackmail and branding. The latter landed her in hot water. She was released today on $5 million bail and restricted to home confinement.

She is a pathetic creature who owes her downfall to the cult leader she called Vanguard, a  man who destroys all he touches. Time will tell how culpable she is for the horrors she participated in.

There are greater monsters than her – if she is indeed a monster. The greatest evil doer who roams free – perhaps too big to tackle because of her enormous wealth is cult leader Clare Bronfman.

The fact that Allison Mack [see below] is hanging on to her lawyers as she walks out of the courthouse with the media descending [and not clinging to her Vanguard, Keith Raniere, who she agreed to not communicate with] tells me she has left the cult.

Allison Mack is out, I beleive. She learned the lesson. Raniere is a monster. Bronfman is a monster.  They used her to recruit slaves to their sick and perverted cult.

That does not exonerate her completely, but there is a glimmer, a ghost of a chance that she can make amends and begin the healing process for herself and, maybe someday, for those she helped Raniere and Bronfman hurt.

  • HE DID NOT PERSUADE HER TO QUIT SMALLVILLE!

    PLEASE GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!

    He may have persuaded her to quit ACTING after THE FOLLOWING.

    She acted on WILFRED and THE FOLLOWING after Smallville, not to mention doing that unreleased movie “Marilyn” with her fiancee also.

  • May Allison Mack read and learn all she can while she is housebound and off the digital realm. So much recovery and unlearning to do.

  • No way!!! Nobody who falls under somebody’s “spell” so quickly and completely and then becomes the same monster herself, changes THAT quickly. They were foolish to make a deal with her! Hopefully there are provisions should she reneg on any part of this “deal”

    • They haven’t said they would do a deal. They asked for time until May 3rd to put together a deal. The courts are obviously open to it based on the evidence. Which leads me to believe that the evidence that the FBI has is more damming for Keith than for Allison as Keith didn’t get anything.

      So no, thy are not foolish.

      Right now Allison only has allegations against her nothing more.

      • Is this the same idiot that comments on literally every post repeating the same thing about allegations? I’d say you should try out for AM’s defense attorney but you’re too busy watching Smallville and hanging out here dishing out the same comment over and over.

        • K, i think you are shadowstate. The same person who got jilted by AM on twitter and now you spend your time focusing your hate on her and fapping over smallville memorabilia

    • Yeah only thing i disagree with here is the part about her smiling. That’s not her smile. That’s her talking to her mother. These tabloids love to stir the pot and give people the impression she is happy.

  • From what I’ve read, juries aren’t typically swayed by brainwashing as a defense. I suppose it’s nearly impossible to prove.

  • The main thing is she is out.

    May 3rd keith will be thrown under the bus with his cohorts

    Allison may do some small amount of time but not 15 years

    We will learn the real story from a victim

    Focus will shift back to Keith, the true villain

    Next up on Frankreport television is the Bronfman sisters

  • ISNT IT FUNNY as soon as she leaves the courthouse looking quite normal and not like the artist impression, people start to think she is a normal girl, nothing to see here? did anyone see india and the other one yesterday looking normal? walking and smiling on the street ? To me Allison looks quite a pathetic creature, full of sedatives, holding on to her team, and needs sleep , she got some makeup on look at the cheekbones its called bronzer. To others, she looks the picture of health,, normal and innocent. I am not saying that she is or isnt but we will never know the full truth., Ive looked at this case and videos and put two and two together and guess what? she is brainwashed, in it up to her eyeballs because of the blackmailing. It’s not what I believe or disbelieve, my imagination can conjure up all sorts of darkness. I’m not going there, fact is this woman needs help and with that, hopefully comes a full confession of all the seedy crap she has been involved in and then the powers that be get brought to buck, fact is she is not the top of this pyramid really, 2nd in command, pimp Mack, etc yep on the surface but it goes a lot deeper than that. Get some calories, get some sleep at mum and dads and come back and give us the full story Allison probably on a tv show from your prison cell so go for it , tell all.

      • Im not wretched Im Free of mind body and soul, free thinking , a kind soul and dont get caught up in bullshit , i smell it at ten paces

    • Did you seriously just comment on someone who’s been arrested for sex trafficking and for keeping slaves (basically) looks tired? Um….. People who get arressted for trespassing usually lose a few nights of sleep. Getting arrested isn’t exactly a relaxing thing. I’d have to imagine a person up for multiple felonies, who’s entire world has just been turned upside down (however sick that world was, it was still her “normal” for the past decade), who the entire country is thinking of as a cult leader, sex slave keeping, pimp who branded women against their will, isn’t exactly sleeping soundly. Just going on a hunch…..

  • I think folks need to realize one thing.

    All humans are capable of making mistakes.

    All humans are capable of falling in with the wrong crowd.

    Allison is no different. I would hate to see her swallowed by so much hate from the public that she feels that suicide is the only solution to move forward. It’s not. There is life beyond this.

    Allow the justice system to do its job and refrain from tossing mud at her. The truth will come out in due time.

    She has a heart. It beats. It hurts. It can be destroyed or supported.

    I’m not saying you need to like her but there is so much about this case that WE the people do not know.

    In time we will.

    Let him who is without sin throw the first stone.

    • tell that to everyone who has committed a heinous crime , I dont do religion but read the commandments of a decent way of living , take all the time you need

      • Well this isn’t directed at those who have committed a heinous crime it’s directed at those someone who has ALLEGATIONS ( no court has determined they are true yet ) until then its innocent until proven guilty.

        Allison is a victim and it will come out on may 3rd.

        Keith is the villain ( focus your hate on him if you must )

    • “Allow the justice system to do its job”……yeah it’s really worked so far!

      “No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of thy Lord!” Deuteronomy 23:1

      What do you think a “puzzy brand” will get yah ???

  • Ali

    You used your little cutesy-me thing to get into show biz, then used it as a means of roping people into NXIVM. You are half slut and half whore. Both coasts are filled with people you became intimate with just to meet other goals. You’ve never experienced true love or even true passion. You need help. But that should not stop you from also paying for the damage you have done to so many. Childhood friends. The Vancouver crowd. How about that guy in Saratoga whose wonderful relationship you destroyed?

    You will get jail time. Did you ever think that was even a possibility in your future?

    You no doubt know who this is. You also know that I hold some other of your secrets.

    • Actually her mother put her into show biz. So i think we can rule our your speculation. (Nice try shadowstate) You are dripping with hate that will backfire on yo.

  • Whats with all the comments SLAYING Ms. Mack, or regurgitating information that has still to be proven in court? No mattter what happens, she is STILL INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, just like FRANK PARLATO was indicted but not convicted or guilty. At the moment, all there is are allegations that STILL NEED TO BE PROVEN. All of which will happen on May 3rd.

    Until then, it’s innocent until proven guilty.

    If Allison was your mother, sister, daughter, that was victimized and forced to follow Keiths orders and made to have sex with him through damaging collateral, would many of you still be saying “She is a monster – or she’s really bad?” And yes, she might end up doing time for fraud of marriage or being coerced by keith … however, in this case the only thing against her are ALLEGATIONS. THE FBI has to file a report of charges STEMMING from allegations in order for a court to determine if they are false or true.

    This was one decision she made to join this group. Before 2006, she had no criminal behavior or involvement.

    Yes, she may have been sucked into Keith’s deceptions but there are no allegations that state she branded anyone, only allegations that she recruited under his commands. She didn’t need to be locked in a cell and was free to travel because she had Stockholm Syndrome. Read about it. Elizabeth smart had many times to escape but she didnt. This is not stupid. This is a fact.

    She participated because she was fearful for her life even though she may have known it was wrong, immoral and illegal. The ONLY reason she is helping the authorities now IS BECAUSE SHE IS FINALLY FREE FROM THE REAL MONSTER OF KEITH and no longer has to fear the legal team of Clare. Do not try to speculate from tabloid fodder or make excuses when nothing has been proven in court yet. She couldn’t come forward a long time ago due to collateral over her and out of fear of retribution. Take Frank Parlato for instance. He did not come forward until he was fired. He didn’t leave becuase he knew the implications and he said he was indicted because of Clare Bronfman. Fear is a big reason why people dont leave cults.

    There is an old saying (and one that is very true “Innocent until proven guilty”… hmmm. I’d definately say she’s INNOCENT until proven in a court as she has be in fear of KEITH just like Barb and Frank were. That’s why they couldn’t do anything for a long time… at least not until she was freed by the FBI and had now has a choice to speak up which she will do on May 3rd.

    She must be ( and will be ) held accountable for her actions IF proven guilty. No matter what happens in the legal arena, there are still so many societal effects that come from being a victim. Thankfully, we have the #METOO movement that will stand with her IF she lets the world know on May 3rd that Keith held her captive through collateral and mind games and sleep deprivation, which all works to keep a person in a bad relationship. (read up on why women stay in bad relationships; it’s a known fact it exists). The main reason people want to bad mouth her and not feel sorry for her is because they THINK they know her through her portrayl of a character on TV that many can like and relate to… but that’s a fictional character and does not represent who she truly is. She’s also a young, attractive, white woman and so some people will use that excuse as a reason for why they need to crap on her so they can somehow equalize the playing field…. and while many can pretend this doesn’t impact, it most certainly does… if she were poor, ugly, and completely unknown, then no one would be shaming her or going out of their way to speak bad about her.

    “Nice try Shadowstate now go back to fapping over smallville memborabilia.”

    Allison is a victim

    Keith is the villain

      • Yes he is innocent until proven guilty. However, whole event stems from the OWNER of NXIVM. That is keith.

        Without that, there would be no allison mack, no nicki clyne, no india oxengberg.

        Allison didn’t create NXIVM

        Keith did. He was the one that got this ball rolling

        Just like david koresh, just like jim jones

        All those people that followed them were slaves and victims of them.

      • Riddke me this:…OJ was innocent and NOT proven guilty. Zimmerman was innocent and proven not guilty. So Keith Raniere is innocent? Mack is innocent?……

        • You are taking the words out of context.

          You need to add on… UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY

          Every American is TREATED ( as innocent until proven guilty)

          It’s the process of the law. It doesn’t mean they are innocent.

          The point is everyone is entitled to a FAIR TRIAL.

        • There’s a difference between not guilty and innocent. Being found not guilty doesn’t mean you’re actually innocent. It just means there were holes in the case that could not prove they were guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

          • @Anonymous:
            Were there were holes in the OJ case? Were there holes in the Zimmerman case? Were there holts in the Philando Castile case?

  • “…, he persuaded her to quit her hit TV show Smallville…”

    This is factually false!.
    Allison stayed with Smallville until the show ended after 10 seasons. There was no quitting on her part there. She may have tanked her acting career afterwards, but she didn’t quit Smallville. And a quick check on IMDb shows that she still had appearances on other TV shows afterwards.

    This kind of sloppiness in reporting or tossing around wild accusations against some of the victims doesn’t really build trust into the validity of this site as a reliable source.

    A little less sensationalism and being more careful with statements and facts would seriously help.

    • Yes there is a lot of FALSE information being spewed online and people like shadowstate, tex2 and brigid run with it because they hate her. Most are allegations, theories and so on that are used to sensationalism in order to get clicks on an article. That’s it.

  • Dang….. what’s with all the comments trying to DEFEND Ms. Mack, or downplay her involvement and/or accountability?!? No mater what happens she STILL COMMITTED AND PARTICIPATED IN A MULTITUDE OF CRIMES.

    If it was your mother, sister, daughter, etc that she held down and branded, or groomed for Keith to have sex with, would many of you still be saying, ” but she was brainwashed! – she’d really a good person” And yes, innocent until proven guilty…however in this case there are years of evidence against her, and the FBI doesn’t typically waste time with a case they can’t prove (and win).

    This wasn’t a one-time poor decision she made, she participated in this for YEARS…not days or weeks or even months, but YEARS!!

    Yes, she may have had a good heart and good intentions at one point, but that was before she started branding and recruiting young women with the intent to offer them as sex slaves to her ‘master’. She wasn’t locked in a cell and she was free to travel and perform on many, many occasions….. and to compare her to Elizabeth Smart, who was a minor at the time she was abducted…. that’s ridiculous and just plain stupid.

    She willingly participated in something that was wrong, immoral, and illegal… the ONLY reason she’s helping the authorities now IS BECAUSE SHE GOT CAUGHT. Do not try to diminish or make excuses for her behavior. If she were a ‘hero’, as some have tried to portray her, she would have come forward with this long ago.

    Here’s an old saying (and one that is very true) – “Evil wins when good people do nothing”….. hmm… I’d definitely say she’s NOT a good person as she sat back and did nothing for a very long time… at least not until she was caught and had no other choice but to save herself.

    She must be (and will be) held accountable for her actions. No matter what happens in the legal arena, there are still many societal effects she must live with for the rest of her life, and she brought this on herself. The main reason people want to feel sorry for her is because they THINK they know her because of her portrayal of a character on TV that many can like and relate to…but that’s a fictional character, and does not represent who she truly is. She’s also a young, attractive, white woman…. and while many can pretend this doesn’t have an impact it most certainly does…. if she were poor, ugly, and completely unknown, then no one would give a damn about her and what happens to her.

    • I am not defending or downplaying any crimes that were committed by AM, but this case is odd in that she is a victim and an abuser — she is as brainwashed and conditioned as the women she was helping to enslave and brand. She should be held accountable but only as far as HER accountability stands. The people who formed this cult and financed it for years –the Bronfman sisters and Raniere — need to also be arrested and made to pay for their crimes.

      I also think there needs to be special attention paid towards the doctor who did the actual branding. She took an oath to “first do no harm” and she violated it countless times–if nothing else happens, this doctor needs to lose her medical license.

    • Agree with your take. The effort by some on this board to sanctify Ms. Mack and absolve her of responsibility here is appalling. She may be a victim herself, but it does not lessen her alleged complicity in federal crimes.

      • Of course it doesn’t. But until they are proven in a federal court they are just that….. allegations.

        Trust me if the boot was on the other end of the foot and it was you in her shoes you would be glad to know that its INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY

    • My response.

      Whats with all the comments SLAYING Ms. Mack, or regurgitating information that has still to be proven in court?

      Yes, she may have been sucked into keiths deceptions but there are no allegations that state she branded anyone, only allegations that she recruited under his commands. She didn’t need to be locked in a cell and was free to travel because she had stock holm syndrome. Read about it. Elizabeth smart had many times to escape but she didnt. This is not stupid.

      “Nice try Shadowstate now go back to fapping over smallville memborabilia.”

      Allison is a victim

      Keith is the villain

  • Until we have walked in her shoes we cannot judge her….Yes she played a terrible part and I believe she is paying for it now….I don’t know her but I can see she joined the group with good intentions and it all became twisted by that psycho sex freak KR…She has lost her reputation…let’s hope she is on the road to make amends and help being KR down!!

    • When a woman finds that her boyfriend is a dangerous sociopath, it is incumbent upon her to kick him to the curb.

      Instead Allison Mack willingly became an enthusiastic accomplice to Keith Raniere’s evil.

      • So Elizabeth smart was an accomplice? Please, Shadowstate your need to squash allison mack because she ignored your tweets is hilarious.

        Allison is a victim

        Keith is the one responsible for these crimes.

        Just as frank Parlato was indicted ( doesn’t mean he is guilty)

        Innocent until proven guilty

          • And your attempts at regurgitating tabloid fodder without fact checking is why no one is listening to your comments. I’m just making it clear to others here that you don’t fact check and that the hate you are spewing is just backlash from being turned down by Allison Mack on Twitter. ( we have screenshots that prove it ) Back to fapping over smallville memorabilia shadowstate

            Allison is a victim

            Keith is the villain.

  • I don’t know Mack or many of the women in this group, but I do know one. I have watched her change from someone I knew into someone I don’t even recognize. She has turned her back on her family, thrown away all her money, and lost herself in this group. I can’t judge these women, because I have no idea what they were thinking. I have to guess they were broken in ways that made them easy prey. I’ve seen a lot of ugly comments, but just ask yourself if this person was your sister, your mother, your aunt, your friend… what would you think then?? Keith is the real monster, and it brings me joy to think of him sitting in prison now

    • This. People don’t know exactly what these women went through before they got to where they are now. It’s not like they were in a place where things were crystal clear.

    • Exactly. People need to place themselves in her shoes.

      No one really knows what happened except her and she will bring that out in the trial

        • Oh my god you are an idiot shadowstate. Comparing Allison to a follower of Charles manson is so off the wall its hilarious. She was not involved in murder.

          Your lack of understand of cults only proves how ignorant you are.

          Allison is a victim

          keith is the villain

          learn about law

          Learn about cults

          Then come back and show some empathy

    • Yes, that’s called being sucked into a cult.

      Watch the show THE PATH ( with the guy from breaking bad ) you will then understand how cults can manipulate, threaten and change people until people they dont want to be.

      • Do you know her? Have you interacted with her? Do you just like to speculate because it makes you feel good about yourself?

      • Dear me Shadowstate you spent a lot of time here focusing on Mack. It’s unhealthy. Not a word you say is going to convict her. Allegations are allegations for a reason

        yes she may end up serving time but it won’t be because of specualtion made by you.

        Get back to work

  • I think folks need to realize one thing.

    All humans are capable of making mistakes.

    All humans are capable of falling in with the wrong crowd.

    Allison is no different. I would hate to see her swallowed by so much hate from the public that she feels that suicide is the only solution to move forward. It’s not. There is life beyond this.

    Allow the justice system to do its job and refrain from tossing mud at her. The truth will come out in due time.

    She has a heart. It beats. It hurts. It can be destroyed or supported.

    I’m not saying you need to like her but there is so much about this case that WE the people do not know.

    In time we will.

    Let him who is without sin throw the first stone.

    • Repetition says more about the repeater than the context of what they drone on and on and on about over and over and over again in the comments section of every single post.

      • Repetition is required for those with marble heads.

  • Too many people treat Ms. Mack as a delicate fragile flower of a woman incapable of harming others.
    Even as some kind of heroine.

    Nothing could be further from the truth.
    Nothing is more sexist.
    Ask any woman and if she is brutally honest she will admit that women can be as vile, deceitful and even as ruthless as any man, particularly in competition with other women over a man.

    Remember that according to accounts Ms. Mack enjoyed being called the “Madam.”
    Ms. Mack enjoyed using and abusing other women in a way that most men would never dream of.

    • Shadowstate you need to calm down and stop spreading false news. So far all we have is allegations.

      Your obsession with mack is disturbing but then again i guess when she turned you down on twitter that should have been an indication you would go off the deep end.

      Seriously you need to get a life

      • All we have is an indictment that could land Ms. Mack in prison for 15 years to life.

        We also have photos in the newspapers of women branded with the initials of Keith Raniere and Allison Mack.
        KRAM

        • Actually no. Again you have shown your ignorance of law and yet you continue to spout on this blog. This is why I am telling folks to stop listening to you as you have no idea.

          She has CHARGES that stem from ALLEGATIONS that if FOUND TO BE TRUE could result in 15 years to life.

          Big difference. “If found to be true” is the key phrase

          Until then its Innocent until proven guilty

          Go learn the law

          As for the branding. Those show Keith Raniere. In order for them to even attempt to show A M they have to flip it around ( yes with a computer not on the person ) . I’m guessing you are like those folks who see JESUS in the toast as well.

          Seriously shadowstate give up the gig and admit your creepy obsession with Mack after being jilted by her has led you to spew hate.

        • More allegations Shadowstate. I know your mother only allots you 30 mins a day for internet and most of that time is spent fapping over smallville memorabilia or copying and pasting tabloid information into blogposts but really your routine is getting old.

          • Actually a lot of the allegations come from Frank Parlato the guy who runs this blog.
            And those allegations resulted in a US indictment after an FBI investigation.

            Instead of hurling ad hominen allegations against me go through the archives of Frank’s stories and you will find a lot of the same information.

            Stop trying to spin Alison Mack into a hero.
            Her activities are reprehensible to any sane normal person.

          • Then it is incumbent upon Ms. Mack to take charge of her own life.
            She was abused only because she allowed herself to be abused.
            Keith Raniere had no power to compel Ms. Mack to remain in NXIVM.

            For a woman who likes to talk about female empowerment Allison Mack proved to be very weak willed.

        • No one is saying she is the hero.

          We are saying allow her a fair trial without throwing speculation at her.

          You spend hours on this blog throwing out speculation because she jilted you through tweets. ( the truth is out there)

          Time to give up the gig. No one is buying your speculation.

  • I think folks need to realize one thing.

    All humans are capable of making mistakes.

  • So the sum of her parents house, her house and her retirement money is 5 mil?? Certainly well off, but not even in the 1%

    • The Cult Education Institute has a Group Information Archives on Known Cults – some are of course international but here is the link https://www.culteducation.com/group.html.

      Not to far away from Clifton Park NY, in Washington County NY town of Cambridge is a farm operated by the Twelve Tribes cult, another outpost is in Coxsackie NY down in Greene County about 30 minutes south of Albany and another in Oneonta NY where the cult operates a Yellow Deli. For those familiar with the Peacemaker bus that offers fellowship and medical care and members dance Israeli Folk dances outside the bus at Grateful Dead and Phish concerts this is the Twelve Tribes. They have recruited many a down on their luck spun out deadhead or phish phan. Twelve Tribes has been accused of child abuse and slavery also. Nationwide the Yellow Deli’s are operated by the Twelve Tribes, some of the Frank report readers may have patronized a Yellow Deli and not realized they are run by a cult.

  • Disagree entirely with this article, Frank. Allison may have “declined & fallen” as you say but the photos don’t show it. Indeed, I was thinking over night how well she looks. I believe the fact she she looks so like herself will only start the process of reforming her public image in the eyes of many. The way you have used the poor court drawing to show her “After Raniere” and gloss over that it looks nothing like her, is low journalism.

    There’s no two ways about it: Allison leaving court looks far better, far more refined and even dignified than I (and most of us I suspect) expected. So paint her however you want, Frank, but don’t state the simple inaccurate “Photos of Mack leaving court tell shocking story of her decline, pathetic fall”. Don’t tell your readers what their reaction should be.

    • And here is another example. The rest of us see someone who looks gray and shell-shocked, and you see refined and dignified. Also, if you want to tell readers what proper reactions approved by you should be, create your own blog.

        • So Frank creator of the blog is not allowed to have opinions, only the commenters are? That makes no sense.

          What does make sense is that Looper is a snowflake who overreacts and thinks Frank sharing his opinions is “telling readers what to think.”

      • Start my own blog? Not a bad idea. Or maybe I’ll go one better and start my own cult. After all, there’s a gap in the market right now…

  • Mack has been in love with Raniere since 2006. She was his loyal puppy chasing the car that took him away just a few weeks ago. Last week, she was staving her slaves and working to help get Raniere off the hook for the charges he faced.

    Mack was arrested and 3 days later she is a changed person? How can anyone believe that? Mack is an actress. And if you have watched Smallville, you know she can cry on cue and act very convincingly.

    Mack is acting. I’ve dealt with women and men who are controlled by their mates. They cannot be broken from being controlled so easily and actually, I’ve never seen one break free. When that control damages their life and the health of themself or their children, they still refuse to break free from the person who controls them.

    Mack is putting on a clinic. She is performing and many people are buying it. I’m not sure what her plan is, if she has a plan, but if she does, it could range from escape to even suicide.

    • I don’t think she’s a changed person. Allison has lived a privileged life for practically all of it. I just think she got smacked in the face hard with the possibility of 15+ years of life in prison.

      That changes a lot of people quick.

      If it is true that people like Kristin Kreuk and others tried to stage interventions for her, that means she was at least aware of their concern and doubts and it perhaps seeded some doubts in her as well. Those probably bubbled to the her frontal cortex pretty quickly as she spent a weekend in prison.

      I still think she’s got a long way to go to get out of the mind and emotional muck.

      • Sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G. Just kidding. A restraining order against you is what actually would happen.

        You don’t see inside Kreuk’s or Mack’s head. Go talk with your baby brother’s psychologist wife. Maybe she can refer you to someone. You need help. A grown man obsessed with Kreuk all these years. And move out of your mom’s basement.

    • “Mack has been in love with Raniere since 2006” I see. And you know this how? From insider reports, it was in 2016 that Mack become deeply involved with NXIVM, vs more casual participation. She also had a fiance. And there is no indication that she was a part of NXIVM in 2006. And the people you’ve personally observed that are controlled by their mates? Did they also get arrested and freed from a cult? In the public spotlight? Mack’s experience is beyond your experience.

      • Shadowstate no need to hide behind another false name

        We know your obsession with mack and her turning you down has made you an angry man but posting on here your hate day after day is getting old

        Time to move on

        • It’s time for you to quit defending the indefensible.
          In what universe is it acceptable for Allison Mack to brand women and turn them into slaves?

          There is the real hate.
          There is the real misogyny.
          The way Allison Mack treated her fellow women.

      • not sure about 2006, but Mack was definitely part of NXIVM in 2007 and by 2010 had moved to NY and bought a house in Halfmoon in 2011.

  • Man I used to have a restrictive eating disorder, I’m white and blonde like Allison, a little weird in the face with those surprised eyes but generally small. I couldn’t see the changes in me during those years. Even though it’s been over for a few years, my hair is still thin. I see it in her photos. I see it in myself now. I wonder what the people around me were thinking during those years of suffering 🙁

    Just because she might be cutting ties with NXIVM doesn’t mean she won’t stop restricting and overexercising (anorexia nervosa is already the deadliest mental disorder, and anorexia athletica increases likelihood of suicide even higher). I hope something clicks in her. I wouldn’t wish my internal suffering on anyone, nothing good come from it, only destruction

    • I would not say she overexercised during the time by running 5 miles a day. I guess that is still healthy if you have a healthy diet to back it up. It becomes a problem when you are on a starvation diet with low protein. It can make sense to lose some weight and a lot of people could profit from it… But she has to eat.

      Btw there have been long time studies that listed BMI vs average life expectancy and 24 to 25ish was the most healthy. They used the health checks Army recruits have to do from several western countries and had millions of test subjects, though most male. The companies who financed these studies were not very happy with the results as they were selling diet plans and lobbied for an BMI around 21 to double the potential customer group.

  • Frank wrote that Allison’s parents were part of NXIVM too. So, is that not true or did the judge not know since she’s not supposed to have contact with any of the cult?

    • I guess that it would be a question of the degree of their involvement and whether such involvement continued up through the present day (especially past last fall).

      • At the beginning of this month, Frank wrote, “Her mother and father both firmly stood by fighting for Mack’s right to be in NXIVM and ignored mine and others’ warnings about the cult. In fact, Mack’s father gave singing lessons to cult members for a fee, while his daughter was secretly branding women.” I thought he also wrote that her parents approved of Raniere and spent holidays with him and AM

    • Actually part of the condition of the bond that MACKS mother Melinda stipulated ( not the court ) was that she would only put up her house if Allison cut ties with NXIVM and didn’t speak to them again.

      Again people, you know very little except a few articles online that list allegations.

        • They were not part of NXIVM but you wouldn’t know that shadowstate as you merely regurgitate allegations made in tabloids and then stamp it as fact.

          If you actually knew the family you might know something until then go crawl back under the rock you came from

  • I like how her lawyers dressed her up to look like a little, innocent school girl. The plain clothes, the ponytail, the bangs over her forehead, the little backpack, hanging onto her lawyers as if they were her daddy. I saw right through this 35 year old little, innocent school girl. She is a MONSTER.

      • Come on, haven’t you been reading Frank Report regularly?

        He also forbade them from grooming their pubic areas.

        Vanguard liked a woman with a thick underbrush.

    • Nah, that’s just your fantasy. And what you did is called psychological projection, by the way.

      In real life, Allison hasn’t eaten or slept properly in years, has spent 4 nights in jail, in shock, unkempt, no stylist around to engineer that innocent school girl look you’re so responsive to, wearing the ill-fitting clothes her attorney was able to bring her.

      But you do you, Scott Johnson of Texas. Better yet, go back to your Amway, guns, and cows.

      • She seemed very well sedated. I really wouldn’t mind if she and her entire family returned to Deutschland, the country of her birth. She might even be safe from Clare Bronfman there.

      • The only real shock she is suffering from is getting arrested and being imprisoned after (and not too wisely) she devoted her life to a brilliant problem solver who would change humanity. How could a man so obviously brilliant ever be arrested? How could she be arrested just for following him? How could the teflon coating bought with the Bronfman millions have worn through so quickly?

        • If by that you mean a few years, you are correct. From insider accounts, Allison Mack’s NXIVM participation was pretty casual until 2012, when she started getting more seriously involved.

    • Tex2 (aka Scott Johnson) you continue to make your hateful remarks with little information except allegations and perception

      Go back to your sheep and guns

  • “A few years later she was nearly broke. He had fleeced her of most of her money.” — She just posted $5 million dollars worth of bail

    Boy, I wish I could lose MOST of my money to a cult and still have $5 million in assets……

    so poor. so so poor.

    • If anyone knows about bonds, please speak up.

      In the meanwhile, my impression is that you put down a percentage of the bond as collateral. Think about a mortgage. If you stop paying the mortgage, the bank will take your house because it serves as collateral for the loan. Allison’s property and her mom’s property and her retirement account are likely equal to a small portion of the bond, and they’ll lose it all if Allison doesn’t show up in court in May.

        • Ah, you have knowledge of bonds! And without googling. For once your arrest comes in useful!

          I had to google bonds and found out there are different kinds, amounts, and conditions. Not knowing the details of Mack’s bond, I didn’t want to make an incorrect assumption, nothing that’s ever worried you. Go back to your guns and sheep.

      • Usually if a person wants to make their bond, they have to have 10% of the bail, which would be $500,000, so her parents pledged their home in CA and AM put up her retirement fund–makes sense to me how that could add up to 500 thousand dollars. I just hope AM’s time in CA and away from the cult’s influence will be her saving grace and she can start to do the right thing.

        • The bond itself requires full value in collateral.
          The bond note is paid in full, generally at 10%. So the parents or whomever likely had to pay $500,000 in order, while putting up an additional $5,000,000 in collateral.

  • Mack is the small fry here and like you said, part victim/part abuser. I know what it is like to be sucked into a cult and how mind warping it is. I suspect Allison will come to fully realize how hood-winked she was, grief will set in for the mistakes she made. Is she is a monster? Perhaps. I believe she can be redeemed when deprogrammed like many others have. As for the ring leaders Raniere and Clare Bronfman? Those need to have the full weight of the law thrown at them. Cults strip people to discern good and bad. I hope Allison turns over all the evidence needed to bring this mess to a halt and justice is met out
    .

    • The feds have all the evidence and witnesses they need without her. They will let her sing like a canary and throw her a plea deal bone: instead of 50 years, we’ll give you 40 for all of your “help.”

  • Pathetic? Interesting choice of words. Would you use the same word for Elizabeth Smart? Or a rape victim? Or those with Stockholm syndrome? Give the woman a chance to defend herself? The only one who knows the truth is Mack and she will tell her side on May 3. Until then, innocent until proven guilty.

    • Her trial doesn’t start on May 3. The clock starts counting towards her RIGHT to a speedy trial on May 3. Her lawyers and the Federal prosecutors have decided to forestall that right as they bargain on a likely plea deal. This makes a ton of sense for the FBI, as they need to test the veracity of her claims against the evidence that they have already collected, and the evidence she is providing.

      She is not the one who decided to forestall her right to a speedy trial. The FBI likely required it as part of the plea negotiations in order to ensure that she is telling the truth.

      ….

      My guess is that she will eventually plead guilty to Conspiracy to Commit Sex Trafficking (a crime that doesn’t carry a mandatory minimum) and Conspiracy to Commit Forced Labor (also no mandatory minimum). Then (dependent upon her behavior while out on bond), and her veracity at trial(s) will serve a light sentence with a long parole.

        • If the prosecution wants to keep the conspiracy charges against Keith then the only way Mack can be useful is if she pleads guilty to the conspiracy charges. You need co-conspirators for a conspiracy.

          Neither conspiracy charges carry mandatory minimum sentences, so depending on her veracity, the prosecution can recommend to the court that she receive a lenient sentence.
