Where did Nicki Clyne get the money to buy house for the sex slaves?

Nicki Clyne now commanding slaves and working at cafe in NYC

Nicki Clyne sent the photo above out on social media. It looks a lot like prison garb. Prison is where Nicki Clyne – the former Battlestar Gallactica actress – may be headed.
Recently, Nicki married Allison Mack, I believe, in order to remain in the USA [She is Canadian].
The Feds – who charged her spouse Allison with sex trafficking and forced labor – might like to trace how Seagram’s heiress Clare Bronfman paid Nicki before she got married to Allison via laundering money from the USA to Canada to Clyne at a pay rate of $15 per hour.
A beautiful and talented actress, Clyne got into cult leader Keith Raniere’s clutches and became a branded slave of the alleged crime cult.
Her marriage to Allison is likely an illegal fake marriage and her work to recruit other women might put her in the hot seat next to Allison.
The conditions of Allison Mack’s $5 million bail includes that she not speak to anyone connected to NXIVM except through her lawyers.
Nicki is also her spouse. The supposition is that Allison and Nicki cannot communicate – except through back channels – if at all. But the smart money is on the bet that Allison has defected and hence is no longer in the sex-slaver cult as her lawyers try to work out a plea deal for her – which will undoubtedly include testifying against her former slave master Keith Raniere.
According to sources, Nicki is working at Plantmade Café on 2nd Street in New York City, eking out a modest living and, with Allison gone, running the slaves pods Allison once controlled.  It is not known if Plantmade is being used as a front for the cult and a recruitment locale since many attractive women patronize the vegan-based eatery.
Seagram’s heiress Clare Bronfman is now in charge of the entire NXIVM operation. NXIVM members are said to be in mortal fear she may be arrested – which  would cripple NXIVM instantly since Bronfman runs the cult and funds its operations.
The fact is that NXIVM slaves have to be constantly commanded, which is a task Allison assumed until she was arrested.  While Clyne is good at managing the daily duties of the slaves, she is destitute and could not continue operations without Bronfman’s support. Which means, of course, that Clare is now responsible for ensuring that Raniere’s sex-slave operation stays up-and-running until its master returns.

  • Looks like Plantmade Cafe in NYC closed in Spring 2019. “The whole block, 2nd Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets, is pretty much owned by vegan celebrity chef and restaurateur Matthew Kenney, who’s been a leader of the plant-based food movement for decades.” https://guestofaguest.com/new-york/restaurants/is-this-the-most-vegan-friendly-block-in-new-york

  • Now, that I’ve read the frank report I’m so totally into the twists and turns of this on going investigation. I live on 2nd ave. Really close to where India and Niki work at PlantMade I walk by all the time. It’s next to my fave gelato spot. Reading this, makes me want to go in there and order a chai and charred bagel with cashew cream cheese and then just ask. “Hey, why are you still in a cult?”

  • In pondering thee relationship between Mack and Clyne a decent immigration attorney could make a plausible argument that they qualify as a married couple.
    They’ve been long time friends and have lived together for some time.
    That’s the way many marriages are formed.
    Immigration official;s often ask the couple separately details of their life together and if the results match closely the marriage is considered valid.
    Does this photo look like a married couple?

  • I think NC needs a good slap up the side of the head. I feel like telling her…wake up dumbass! Paying for courses that talks about crap, Diets of 500 cal, sleep deprivation, getting a brand of his initials on your pubic area, being part of a harem of women who sleep with a greasy, hairy schlub of a man isn’t intelligent. It’s straight up dumb. The only one who is getting any benefits is keiths penis and his bank account. The guy is a dirty, schlub like Jim Jones or David Koresh. Time to wake the hell up. And no one is buying your act that you aren’t part of this group. You can delete comments on your instagram and ban people in the hope that people will assume your not in a cult but everyone knows you are in a cult. Forever online articles will say you married Allison Mack, defrauded the GOV and sucked from the teet of Raniere. That’s a great legacy. Not! Wake up!

  • Nicki Clyne is going full on “CATCH ME IF YOU CAN” to the authorities. The only problem is if she spent a just a weekend in jail, she would crack like Allison did. Honestly Nicki needs to be arrested. She was complicit and knows a lot more than most. It might also snap her back to her senses so she can realize that things aren’t going to get better for her or the cult and it’s time to get out. You’d think with all the news media happening right now these women would get out of this and offer info to the FBI. Most are young and stupid / brainwashed though.

  • Do you think it’s just a green card marriage or to ensure either woman cannot be compelled to testify against her spouse? Spousal privilege, etc.

    • Green card marriage. NXIVM throughout its checkered history has seen this as a solution to keep their foreign born members in the USA.

  • The cultists and the starstruck are all in full motion with their “she’s a victim!” nonsense for all these cute little girls. They are not.

    She offered herself and others sexually to those who agreed to enroll (and wrote the big check) in the Executive Success Programs.
    We know what that is called. They are whores and they are extortionists, plain and simple. So let’s prosecute.

  • K. Thanks Frank!

    Hopefully there will be a superseding indictment with more charges somewhere down the line…

  • Breaking News or maybe it is not – Rainbow Cultural Garden Miami is shut down by the state of Florida – http://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/alejandro-sanzs-wifes-miami-school-closed-by-state-tied-to-nxivm-sex-cult-founder-10295903

    Also tonight on 20/20 Elizabeth Vargas revisits NXIVM this time focusing on what Allison Mack’s arrest means 10 PM

    We are awaiting confirmation that Rainbow LA and NYC are also defunct. By all accounts the operator of NYC Rainbow is a sweet person. She no longer lists Rainbow on her social media profile.

    Rainbow in Halfmoon/Clifton Park operates out of NXIVM members homes it appears including Rosa Laura Junco’s home on Englemore. It is unknown where the Boone children were taught or the older kids (Porter children and Damon Brink’s son were schooled )

  • The international reporting of this hasn’t hit the child exploitation yet but if it does the stigma will never be removed. It wasn’t until a poster on Reddit posted a picture of the actual charges that I thought “whoa!”. A quick Google and I found this site.

    It’s interesting to say the least. We live under social law so we know the boundaries and if we exceed them we face consequences.

    Let’s see what happens.

    BTW the branding is soo weird kram backwards is mark. Ironic and really simple from supposed guru.

    • VanDouche is not patient. I know people who are so much more patient and sincere in it.

      How patient is someone who goes around lying to women about being “the one” while fucking other women behind their back? His patience is a manipulative fraud.

      The notion that he appeared calm and collected in a courtroom is unsurprising to me. The aura of confidence in unsettling situations is what attracts many people to sociopaths. They feel frustration (of not getting what they want) but they rarely feel sense of nervous agitation. If one did a PET-scan on Raniere’s brain and looked at his amygdala, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was smaller than normal and/or less active. This is not the only indicator of a sociopath and it’s not necessarily an indicator, but there is correlation there.

      • The elite at NXIVM knew that this time would come.
        That is why they were trying to line up fall guys to take the heat off of Raniere.

        But people with true foresight would understand that NXIVM was always bound to fail just like Raniere’s other Pyramid scheme the Consumers’ Buy Line.
        And the fall will be bitter for everyone ensnared in the NXIVM Net.

        If I were in the NXIVM elite I would prepare for civil suits by the ex-slaves who were branded by Mack and abused by Raniere.
        Bill Cosby had to pay out 3 million dollars to pay off just one of the women he drugged and abused.

        Imagine if the victims of NXIVM sued the leaders of that group.
        The Bronfmans
        The Salzmans
        and Allison Mack.

        I’ll bet the tort attorneys in New York are already busy.

  • I do suspect the recent comments between Shadowstate1958 and the sudden onslaught of large numbers of unreasonable and illogical trolls was a contrived situation. How much do you want to bet they are all the same group of trolls collaborating with each other to create controversy?

  • Very brief attempt by Inside Edition to interview India on the street. Just about worth a watch if you’re interested in her:

  • I have to tell you, I’m rather shocked that Nicki Clyne would post a picture of herself in an ill-fitting jumpsuit–it’s almost as if she is mocking prisoners, which is not a smart thing to do because she might be arrested soon. Not smart at all — does she not have any sense of self-preservation?

      • I think that’s easy to say but the people who got involved in this cult genuinely thought it would be empowering and helpful. I can’t fault them for buying into the malarky because Raniere is apparently brilliant at twisting people’s thinking. I just hope everyone’s able to get help once the cult is broken up for good.

        • I took the time to watch a Youtube video where Raniere is talking to Allison Mack, 28 minutes I’ll never get back, and all the time Raniere is spouting out psychobabble.

          I asked myself how anyone could believe that this clown is a great philosopher or teacher.

          Here’s the pathetic video:

          • Not going to bother watching the video but I’d like to point out Keith wasn’t doing recruiting or entry level courses. People met him after they were hooked. Meaning he could babble as much as he wanted. His “couches” laid the groundwork and people they knew brought them through the door.

          • Well the actresses were the eye candy to entice new recruits.

            Women like Kristiana Loken
            Grace Park
            Nicki Clyne
            Kristen Kreuk
            India Oxenberg
            Sarah Edmonson
            and Allison Mack.

            BTW this same tactic of recruiting movie stars and celebrities was used by Scientology.

          • What Anonymous said. Most people who were recruited into this group trusted existing close friends or co-workers. Once they got more involved, some were enticed by VanDouche’s BS, and some thought he was creepy and stayed away from him but liked the people and relationships they shared and the seminars they participated in. When things got weirder the latter left. It’s a known fact that VanDouche tried to keep an aura of mystery around his persona and didn’t eventually try to interact with the “lessers” unless he was interested in you – meaning you had a lot of money and/or he wanted to fuck you if you were a woman. Even then he basically sent his flying monkeys after you to get that to happen. This KR Conversation BS was done relatively recently to better his and NXIVM’s image after Kristin Keeffe flew the coop. He and others probably thought it was good idea at the time forgetting that now he didn’t have the environmental control nor could they hide any slip-ups of his BS due to it being recorded. That’s the problem when you deal with someone who thinks he’s above everyone and what he thinks he says is great and he surrounds himself with a bunch of brown-noses. No one to check the obvious BS that others can see.

        • Celebrities and good looking people have been used to sell all types of products for decades. This isn’t anything new.

      • Nonsense. Much of NXIVM is just ripped off and is just an amalgamation of existing self-help tools, Scientology, religion. Do you think a guy with 2.26 GPA in college came up with all of these ideas on his own? It has an appeal to anyone who is in an emotionally vulnerable situation or wants to improve themselves.

        • Book stores are full of self-help books and their are plenty of self-help videos on the internet.

          If the victims of NXIVM want to really help themselves and extract revenge on their abusers, they should hire tort attorneys to file civil suits against the leaders of NXIVM.

          Sue Raniere
          Sue the Bronfmans
          Sue the Salzmans
          Sue Allison Mack.

          Don’t rely on prosecutors to carry the full load.

          Financially punish the abusers.

          • You oversimplify all the time. Some people don’t want to go on the self-help journey alone. We are not talking about people who have a healthy sense of self who bought into the bullshit. We’re talking about people who were slowly indoctrinated until up was down and down was up. It’s so fucking easy for you to say this without any consideration of what actually went into brainwashing this people to lose their own identity. And you could say they were fools or whatever, but honestly that’s bs.

        • After watching that clip i have to say that Keith is as repulsive as Donald Trump. The most puzzling aspect to all this is WHY any woman would consent to sex with that POS.

          • All agree with you there. I’ve been tempted to send a letter to him with something like “the only thing amazing about you, is you were able to convince attractive women to fuck you. Did they puke when if first happened because you’re fug, and an idiot.” Maybe one day.

  • http://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/alejandro-sanzs-wifes-miami-school-closed-by-state-tied-to-nxivm-sex-cult-founder-10295903

    In 2015, Raquel Perera, wife of 17-time Latin Grammy winner Alejandro Sanz, debuted a school called the Rainbow Cultural Garden in posh midtown Miami. Speaking to Univision, Perera bragged that by immersing toddlers in as many as seven languages at once, the school would revolutionize teaching. Univision credited a New York guru named Keith Raniere with developing the unusual plan.

    The State of Florida has ordered the midtown Miami school to shut down immediately after New Times brought the facility to the state’s attention. Florida officials say the school was not currently licensed to operate.

    “[The Department of Children and Families] has no tolerance for any activities that put children at risk, including operating an unlicensed child-care facility,” David Frady, a spokesperson for the department, said Thursday. “DCF initiated a child protective investigation and ordered the facility to immediately cease operations this afternoon.”

    • Her eyes look so dead. No light in there. Defiant posture as well. What can she be thinking, shows her immaturity to use social media at all when this serious shit is going down. It doesn’t communicate that she is alright, it does the opposite. It communicates that she is divorced from the reality of this nightmare. She’s quite young, isn’t she? Still time to live a good honest normal life, with family, some other career besides acting, some version of normal relationships. Maybe. If she came forward and agreed to assist in the investigation(s), telling all she knows, she might escape criminal prosecution. Civil of course is another matter. It would certainly hasten the mental and emotional recovery she will deal with whether she cooperates or not, goes to prison or not. Women’s empowerment would be seeing to it that Raniere and Bronfman and Salzman get what is due them, for what they did to others. Knowing that she holds the key to their jail cells would be empowering. Or she could resist the inevitable and wind up not only in deep trouble and misery for many long years, but then face coming out of it as an estranged social pariah, with anyone she knew in the first part of her life running like hell to get away from her.

  • Upon reflection, I realized that regardless of the outcome of the criminal prosecutions, the top leadership of Nxivm all face potential civil liability for the branding and raping of the victims.

    For example, just one of Bill Cosby’s victims received 3 million dollars in payoffs for his use of drugs to incapacitate and rape her.

    And NXIVM had about 50 victims or slaves.

    Keith Raniere, the Bronfmans, the Salzmans and Allison Mack are all vulnerable to civil suits.

    I wager some of the victims have already contacted tort attorneys.

  • As another comment mentioned, these women really are all whackos. A photo like that just goes to show these immature twits think it’s all a joke.

    I wonder if time in prison will wake them up from the fanasty reality they seem to be living in.

    • I’m sorry I wasn’t able to comment much yesterday afternoon because I had other pressing business.
      I saw that some of the commentators on here are obsessed with the notion that you and I are the same person.

      I am a white male who is almost 60 years old and I live in the Midwest.
      I saw that you are a female with two kids.
      I hope that calms down the NXIVM nit wits who think Raniere and Mack are persecuted “Saints.”

      • Shadow state- I have had to repeatedly stress to these assumption-making trolls that we are 2 separate people posting comments. However, I’m a little perplexed because I never mentioned anywhere in my comments that I have TWO children (but you’re right, I do have 2)… So are you just a good guesser, Shadow state?

        • Hi Shadowstate and Free Speech, I’m another target of the deranged unhinged trolls, and am no hillbilly, having zero connection to anyone outside of Europe or the Northeast in many generations. Interesting that that was used as an insult, along with gay, along with multiple graphic sexual descriptions. Transparently sick people out there. Never met a man named Brigid either. Nice to chat finally with the sane fellow commenters. I agree with both of you in your previous comments.

          • If either of you have seen twitter comments and youtube comments, and elsewhere, like reddit, there are far worse things being said in nearly every place online than here. This blog is downright polite (in spite of the trolling) in comparison. Frank’s post regarding ‘tone’ is more generous than he needs to be, considering how instrumental he has been in bringing the truth to light. He is absolutely correct that out here in the real world, people view this as bonkers, and the people involved as more than just scum. Mention victimized children, and the pitchforks and torches come out. The innocent and vulnerable being cruelly exploited, brutalized, damaged in any way, brings out the collective rage in society. Everyone (or so I thought until reading comments here unequivocally defending the charged) tends to unite behind that sentiment, while understanding that due process is a given. Except this isn’t a revenge call to social services during a divorce, or a neighbor warring with another, this has been investigated for a long time, with evidence seized well in advance of any arrests, so presuming there is sufficient evidence to warrant the charges is reasonable to me. Feds generally bring cases they think they will win, but obviously they were persuaded to persecute nxivm critics, which is another can of worms that I hope is also pursued vigorously. Even in prison, the toughest prison boss still adheres to the pecking order that puts child molesters at the very bottom. While fellow inmates may not grasp the ‘nuances’ (lol) of Raniere’s crimes, if they discover the nature of the charges and he is convicted of them, he is in for a different kind of justice–jailhouse justice, they call it.

    • Correct – I just checked and she posted that pic in October. So hopefully she does realize the seriousness of the situation.
      Question – if Keith requires his slaves to abstain from sex with other men except for him, does that mean they also must abstain from sex with other women? If so, then the marriage between Mack and Clyde cannot be real…as I believe that is one of the questions asked by immigration to determine if the marriage is fake.

      • A post here from some time ago spoke about a lot of the slaves exploreing lesbian encounters with each other with a list of “rumored” couples, Allison was rumored to be sleeping with Nicki, and I think India as well. Nicki was only rumored at the time to sleep with Allison. I think the information was said to be rumors circulating within the cult. So they might technically meet the requirements of a marriage.

        • When women are deprived of normal sexual encounters with males they frequently revert to lesbian sexual encounters.
          So I’m sure a townhouse filled with Nicki, Allison and India was a regular Orgy Island.

          Video with Nicki, Kristen Kreuk and Allison joking about “lots of blowing.”

          • Well the first gen slaves where brainwashed and fanatical. And the rest were lied to until the last moment, were social inertia would have kept them going.

            And I’m sure if any did try to back out they were reminded of their collateral. The feeling of being to deep to go any direction except deeper. Humans do strange things when they feel trapped.

          • Did you ever even bother to read Sarah Edmondson’s report on how she got into NXIVM and then DOS and why she didn’t ran screaming for the woods when they told her she would be branded? It explains it quite well.
            Most of these women got incrementally drawn into DOS by female “friends” they trusted completely and when it finally came to the DOS (or “The VOW”) initiation ceremony where they were to receive “a small tattoo” they were butt-naked (their clothes had been left behind at a different house) in a location they didn’t know. Thinking about how to get out of that situation, including running away, certainly crossed many of those women’s mind at that point, but just put yourself into their situation – naked in a unknown location and having handed over all kind of embarrassing collateral – would you run out naked and at the least expose yourself to all kinds of ridicule, if not worse? Also, Sarah’s branding was in March and March in upstate New York isn’t really the season you wanna be butt-naked outside at night, possibly far from the next place to seek shelter.
            At that moment, as painful and horrific as it may have been, getting the branding seemed to be the lesser evil. They were lured into a near perfect trap with no safe or easy way out.

            Now, all this does not apply to Allison and likely also not to her direct “slaves” (including India) who all seem to be rather completely in on this.

  • “A beautiful and talented actress”. No and No. More like an average at best looking and average at best talent.

    • I agree that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but that picture in the brown jumpsuit is not the most attractive, what with dark roots showing through and the unfortunate facial expressions. Allison Mack and Kristin Kreuk are both very pretty, Nicki Clyne, not so much..

  • Proving the marriage to be fake in order to keep Clyne in the US should be a pretty tough thing as both do not have to admit guilt. And let us be honest here. It is not very important and none of our business how these two live their lives.

    The focus should be on her running the slave pod if that is accurate. The question that remains in that case is how she does it. NXIVM was losing money fast. Nicki should not be able to run an organization that relies on blackmail and bribery with the money she makes at Plantmade, even if the restaurant was hers.

    Is it possible that this is a Bronfman scheme to thrown someone under the bus? Or is Ms Clyne simply not important enough to be saved by the big guys behind NXIVM?

    • Both?

      I have long suspected Nicki’s rank was mostly garnered through friendship with Allison. As I understand they have been close long before DOS.

      Hopefully she “runs” the remaining slaves by loosening the dietary restrictions (probably wouldn’t get away with removing them completely) and other acts that help to wake as many of them as possible. I’ve met her in person and she certainly has the charisma to overthrow Clare and Lauren if she wanted.
