Heidi: Did Kristin Kreuk lie to the FBI?

Kristin Kreuk plays a brave lawyer on the Canadian taxpayer funded TV show Burden of Truth. Her character risks her career to protect young women.

A comment by someone using the moniker “On Jane” wrote about “Jane”, the self-professed sex slave of Allison Mack who said she was also once part of Kristin Kreuk’s Girls By Design:

“Jane was verified as a real person by Frank. This is true. However, no one knows if she really was in GBD or if anything she said is really true.  From her over dramatic writing, she comes off about as credible as Pea, with a story as credible as Ben Szemkus and his Stormy Daniels tale.”

Heidi Hutchinson responds:

So, now you concede Jane is real but we don’t know if what she says is really true. Wouldn’t that apply to just about every person on the planet?

Oh, but Jane is not credible because of her “over dramatic” writing, you say. Because her fingers were shaking? Not sure what you find over dramatic under the circumstances.

Personally, I find Jane to be very credible precisely because the first thing she typed out was a description of her state of nervousness — very appropriate to her circumstances in that moment — among many other factors.

Jane casually names people rarely spoken of publicly and describes the dynamics between them from her perspective and, perhaps, a perspective that she and perhaps others may feel is important for some of the defendants in this case, especially Allison Mack.

Jane offers many little known details that are true and readily verifiable.

Jane’s claim that she was in GBD can easily be verified; she provided not only her name but a photo. I believe FR already has researched and verified that Jane was in GBD.

The FBI and DOJ could have, better have, or likely will interview Jane and other GBD recruits who advanced to become DOS slaves.

Ultimately, Kristin Kruek, Kendra Voth, Mark Hildreth and any others who may have participated in GBD recruitment and leadership are going to have to answer to that and to what degree they knew what was really in store for the GBD recruits.

Jane describes the justification made to her to recruit the younger girls, the 12 yr. olds, that Kristin Kruek in particular targeted, was “get them while they’re on their knees (younger) and teach them to stand (own and embrace the S&M or BDSM master-slave branding thing) later on.”

What FR readers want to know, what Kristin’s fans want to know and what her employers should want to know, especially if those employers are the Canadian govt., is what Kristin herself has to say, how SHE justifies her own actions and why she publicly lies about GBD not being connected to DOS or NXIVM when it is.

Did she lie to the FBI, as well?

  • This is third hand. I trust my friend, but can’t vouch for the two sources I don’t know. My friend once knew a guy who was friends with a lawyer who briefly worked for Kreuk. Here’s what my friend was told happened many years ago.
    When Kreuk was in Toronto, she was spending less time in the cult and free of Hildreth and the flying monkeys, her head started to clear and she began to learn about the evil things she never heard of before , or ignored like she was taught. She sent a letter (not email) personally to Ranieri, asking him to explain. He never responded, but his lawyer (or thug) contacted her, threatening to sue her and expose her in the gossip rags if she went public–even though her letter never said she would go public and just asked Ranieri to explain.
    Kruek was so shaken that she didn’t contact her regular lawyers, but instead talked to this new one. And he told her, that even though the things Keith threatened to expose were only partly true (I don’t know the accusations) a scandal about this sex cult would be enough to ruin her reputation and career. Her lawyer warned her of NXIVM’s past lawsuits and advised she promise to say nothing about the cult.

    I trust my friend–but I don’t know the other sources that my friend said sometimes told dirty jokes about Kreuk like horny teenagers so this may be another joke. So make up your own mind, but it makes sense to me.

  • Anyone know if GBD is a joyful cash business, like so many of the others NX established for Keith’s con-cubines?

    Keith’s true motto: “Cash, Grass or Ass…nobody drives for free.”

    • Kreuk and Mack fronted “Juicy Peach” which was a NXIVM project aimed at “artists”. Kreuk’s friend Olivia Cheng, coached by her ex-boyfriend Mark Hildreth fronted “One Asian” which has been listed as a NXIVM shell company.

      • Thanks for that juicy info! IDK why Hildreth and Cheng aren’t taking as much heat on this as Kruek when Cheng’s pretty hot herself — and with Hildreth “coaching” her, there’s either a master-slave downline or love triangle going on.

        Guess, “One Asian,” even if it’s a cash biz, money laundering shell, just doesn’t sell tabloids as well as GBD’s underage sex slave trainees and “brandees.”

        Let’s who and what the superseding indictment brings. Maybe Kruek is cooperating and just won’t admit publically she maybe fibbed. Maybe she took a plea and ratted not only Mack but Hildreth & Cheng out and they’ll be indicted,

        Kruek’s the heroine of the story, Mack ET AL go to prison — that’s one possible ending.

  • Heidi, I agree KK has lots to answer for about GBD and other things, but not Jane’s accusations, IMO.
    But those who believe Pea is telling the truth probably believe Jane too.

    • Nope. Jane is a real, verified person in no way resembling the Anonymous Pea, who remains a mystery. I think it overly burdensome on Frank to have to chase down every commenter’s URL unless, like Jane, they offer their identity (if kept anonymous) to validate their information.

      “Jane” also expressed her fear and loathing of informing the FBI, directly. It would be very disconcerting if other eye witnesses felt the same. Especially given that the cult collected that damning collateral and used other methods to, thusly, silence or gage their victims including coercing them to take the 5th by depriving them of equal representation as their masters.

      ”Jane” doesn’t show up on a witness list or isn’t interviewed by investigators IDK that that wouldn’t be grounds for appeal.

  • IDK if KK was interviewed by the FBI or not — I thought it a safe assumption she was.

    You’ve got me wondering though, Leon, and maybe some Cannucks can answer — would the Canadian authorities be the ones to investigate Canadian citizens on this kind of thing? Or can the US authorities act in Canada or Mexico for that matter w/o permission of those Governments?

  • Here is a link to one of the pages of the Times Union expose on Keith Raniere that names Kreuk as a NXIVM member:


    Dated February 2012. The expose goes into detail on scumbag Raniere’s pedophilia and rape, including that of Heidi’s sister Gina. Kreuk did not leave.

    Allison Mack posted this picture of herself, Crook and Hildreth four months later to her Instagram account of them all together in New York:

    Also, a reddit user claims Kreuk showed up on her NXIVM cult course in Los Angeles in 2012, the same year:

    • Thanks for those links and remembering Gina Rose Hutchinson, January 8, 1969 – October 9 – 11, 2002. Tomorrow is her 50th birthday. 🎈

  • Has Mrs. Kreuk even been questioned by the FBI? Do we have any source that connects her and the FBI in the first place? All we had over the last year were wild accusations and nothing of substance. Now with her season 2 on the horizon, the trolls are appearing again.
    So please tell us.

    • Sounds much like the American democrat part, projecting their own corruption on everyone but themselves..

  • Excellent point, as usual, Heidi.
    I suspect she lied to the FBI exactly as much as she has lied to everybody else, even if she rationalises it as her publicist doing it for her.

    • Why do you expect she lied to the FBI, and what do you believe she lied about? You even know if they questioned her.

      Once again, you people post accusations that are made without any evidence at all. Why do you all care so much about Krueks life anyways? Do you think you know more about her than the FBI does?

  • I agree that Jane needs a closer look and it’s my hope she has contacted investigators and told her story. There can’t just be one ‘Jane’ recruited from GBD.

    I may be caught up in this story but what if the authorities are using Ms Kruek as an informant? There are so many storylines at work in trying to bring down KAR and the gang. So many in positions of power have seemingly allowed the organization to keep growing it is almost outside the realm of comprehension.

    • Go away sultanofsixstalksaday. We know it’s you. I hope it is aspergers you have because if it’s not, you are SERIOUSLY fucked up.

  • A comment from a former Girls By Design member from a Frank Report article:



    April 17, 2018 at 4:37 am

    “I was a part of GBD in 2008 when I was 17 years old. KK would have girls fill out questionnaires (usually open ended questions about your experience as a teen) on facebook, and Kendra would contact us privately if we said something that interested her. Here’s one thing I do remember– it seemed Kristen and Kendra were more interested in recruiting girls much younger in age than me, closer to middle school. I ended up leaving GBD because of that. I also remember them both posting numerous vlogs on youtube.

    I do remember at one point Kendra was much more interactive with having one on one’s with individual girls than KK was. I remember thinking that perhaps GBD was Kendra’s thing and KK was there to generate attention (at least she didn’t seem to want to get her hands dirty).

    Not sure if that information is useful, but I wanted to put it out there.”


    Here is Kristin Kook’s public lie that Girls By Design had nothing to do with NXIVM when people started correctly expressing concern. Note how she mentions the College Project, Juicy Peach and Acapella Innovations. The fact that at least one teen girl was recruited into NXIVM by Kristin Kook from Girls By Design and later became a branded sex slave is disgusting.

    “Hi All,

    We have been reading up on the latest news and concerns from many of you in regards to what GBD is all about and what our intent with the company is. We really appreciate that you share our concerns in regards to the safely of teens. Please know that GBD is not affiliated with NXIVM or the Executive Success Programs. GBD is also not a part of 10C (the college project), A cappella Innovations or Juicy Peach.

    GBD has been an independent project in the works since it was a budding idea many years ago when Kristin came to face many challenges as a young woman in her career. This project is something that we are both very proud of and invested in. Our mission is clearly stated on our coming soon page; we want to create a place where all teen girls can come together to explore, express and create (projects) and realize their potential together.

    We have found very few supportive safe places online for girls to interact and participate. It’s our goal to have a cool, fun environment where teen girls go to spend time with friends, make new friends, get involved in projects, and proudly share their accomplishments with their family and friends.

    The financial model will be a traditional internet model with no membership fees and accessible to all :).

    We both sincerely hope this clears up any concerns you may have.

    Kristin and Kendra”


    The above quote was copied and pasted from a Saratoga in Decline blog post from 2011. Read through the comments and you will find a familiar and very annoying commentator you have seen on Frank Report…


  • Has Kristin Crook been interviewed by the authorities? If she has, do they know she and Allison Mack were named in Joe O’Hara’s lawsuit? Do they know about the allegations regarding the Necker Island trip: money laundering? The press certainly don’t know. If she has been interviewed, she has probably lied through her teeth.

    Crook has probably been asked by CBC and Eone, the companies who made her liberal propaganda tax payer funded show filmed during the NXIVM shitstorm of 2017 as well as the CW Network who air it, to explain herself. She probably lied through her teeth. The Daily Beast confirmed the CW Network is shielding her from NXIVM questions.

    • Guys Anonnymous is complaining again about lying liberals, while lying through their teith is the accepted modus operandi for the Dotard and Huckabee Sanders and not a single souls is complaining. If her lie is of any importance and something worth mentioning, the world is in a pretty fine shape.

      • Responded to your silly post but Parlato is protecting you and your fellow alt leftist flowers.by censoring comments that may hurt your precious feelings.

    • Anonymous
      You post assumptions about what Kruek has said and done, without a shred of evidence.
      According to you, Kruek has PROBABLY been asked by CBC to explain herself and she has PROBABLY lied through her teeth….huh?
      By that same reasoning we can literally assume anything we want to believe is PROBABLY true….. I don’t believe that law enforcement uses PROBABLY to convict people, anonymous, I believe they use FACTS instead.
