Singer M.I.A. Attended Necker Island Secret Nxivm Retreat With Then-Husband Ben Bronfman, Allison Mack, Kristin Kreuk and Richard Branson

By Shadow State

Clare and Sara Bronfman’s nephew Ben Bronfman married the Tamil rap singer M.I.A. The two of them attended at least one Nxivm retreat hosted by Sara Bronfman-Igtet on Necker Island in 2010.

Necker Island is owned by Richard Branson who was also in attendance.

Necker Island – home of at least two secret Nxivm retreats.

Bronfman met British rapper M.I.A. in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York in 2008.  They were married and had a son, Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman, on February 13, 2009.

M.I.A, [Mathangi Arulpragasam] was born July 18th 1975 in London, England. Her father reportedly was part of the gorilla organization  The Tamil Tigers. After her father joined the militant group her family fled Sri Lanka to London.

Below are lyrics to M.I.A.’s hit song “Paper Airplanes.” They seem to espouse the Nxivm philosophy from illegal immigration, to stealing money, to having loads of sex and even a dash of poison and murder.

The song was written before she attended the Nxivm secret retreat.

John Tighe reported that at that secret gathering of Nxivm members, money laundering, illegal immigration and other crimes of the Nxivm racketeering enterprise were discussed.  There is no evidence that M.I.A. participated in any of this and there seems to be little or no evidence that M.I.A. remained with the group. It is quite likely that she merely attended it with her husband Ben Bronfman. In turn, he may have attended for no other reason than his cousin Sara has hosting the event.

After all it was a chance to mingle with such celebrities as Richard Branson, Emiliano Salinas, Allison Mack and Kristin Kreuk.


Lyrics to Paper Airplanes

fly like paper get high like planes
if you catch me at the border
I got visas in my name
if you come around here
I make them all day

I get one down in a second if you wait.

sometimes I think sitting on trains
every stop I get to on clocking
that game everyone’s a winner
were making our Fame
bonafide Hustler making my name
All I want to do is bang bang bang
and AKka Ching! And take all your money
Pirate skulls and bones
sticks and stones
and weed and bombs
running when we hit them
lethal poison for the system
No one on the corner
has swagger like us
hit me on my burner
prepaid wireless
we pack and deliver
like UPS trucks
already in hell
just pumping that gas
All I want to do is
bang bang bang bang a
nd AKAaa Ching! and take your money
M.I.A. third world democracy
yeah I got more records
than the KGB
so no funny business
Some some some
I some I murder some
I some
I let go some some some
I some
I murder some
I some I let go
All I want to do is
bang bang bang bang
and AKAaa Ching! And take your money
A talented singer – but were the words really written by her of Keith Raniere?

On another cultural note, the actress Sue Lyon, who played the title character in the Stanley Kubrick film “Lolita,” has passed away.

For those of you not into high culture, “Lolita” was the 14 year old girl molested by an adult male and was based on the book “Lolita ” which was one of Keith Raniere’s favorite books.

The book is by Vladimir Nabokov. It relates the story of a European professor, Humbert Humbert (played by James Mason in the film) who relocates to an American suburb, renting a room from lonely widow Charlotte Haze (played by Shelley Winters in the film). Humbert marries Charlotte, but only to nurture his obsession with her teenage daughter, Lolita (Sue Lyon).

After Charlotte’s sudden death, Humbert hopes to have Lolita all to himself.

Coincidentally, Sue Lyon also starred in the film “Night of the Iguana” set in Puerto Vallarta, the Mexican city where Keith Raniere was arrested in a seaside villa – and just before Raniere was ready to conduct a special recommittment ceremony which was to feature group fellatio with Allison Mack, Lauren Salzman, Nicki Clyne, Rosa Laura Junco, Monica Duran, Daniela Padilla, Camila Fernandez and Loreta Garza.

While Clare Bronfman was there [and paying for the villa] it is not known if she was invited to participate in the group worship of Raniere.


A group fellatio session was to be performed by the eight beautiful women in the circle to the handsome man in the middle.

oh man, the Lolita stuff may or may not be why the plane to pedo island was called the Lolita Express. Man, these fuckers are bold once you have a starting point, which is that they fuck children for blackmailing purposes.

Sir Richard Branson seems to be at the center of everything bad – with Allison Mack, Nxivm appears more to be a Virgin Enterprise of this sick, elite scumbag – Necker Island: time for some Seals to visit the beach I think – Human Trafficking – Extortion – Drugs – wonder if El Chapo was a friendly visitor or employee more likely.

Admiral Minutiae,

It’s spelled “guerrilla,” not “gorilla.” You need to spend more time in the liberry. LOL

I doubt very much the lyrics were about Raniere:

This from John Tighe’s article on the Necker meeting:

“After pleasantries, cocktails and sex, attendees got down to the business at hand.”

Note the word “sex” was thrown in, with no clarification. Keith wasn’t there. So what sex did the others have? Did current couples go off to their rooms? Were new couples paired off? Was there an orgy? Did the Smallville stars demonstrate lesbian tech for the crowd? Did one lonely horney guy jerk off in the corner?
Or…was “sex” thrown in just to make the story more interesting and the meeting more nefarious? Considering how tame the photos are, it seems very unlikely that there was any interesting sex going on at Necker. We certainly never had any first hand reports posted here. Nx wasn’t a sex cult if Keith wasn’t around.

Oh, please. There was plenty of sex. Just because there are no pictures for you to beat your tiny meat to. Kreuk and Mack probably polished more knobs there than a Merry Maids convention.

None of the information from Tighe is reliable. We don’t know who his source was, and it wasn’t verified by at least one more person. I treat it as a second-hand lie until/unless proven otherwise.

There is only one Shadow State and I have been watching the movies since I saw “The Lady and the Tramp” in 1962.
‘Allison Mack calls herself a “movie obsessor”

Allison Mack
story-teller, question-asker, music-lover, theatre-goer, movie-obsessor, shakespeare-studier, globe-trotter, food-inhaler, woman of 34 and counting…

That is the only thing we have in common.

By the way old movies and TV shows are better than new movies and TV shows.
Old movies have elements like plot and character development.

Truth, Shadow State, every picture and word. I love this whole thing and have mentioned M.I.A./Mathangi, a.k.a. Maya and “Benji” here before whilst identifying the recognizable elements to the Necker Island escapades. The couple were “engaged” and had a son, seem to have never married and then moved on after a few years.

M.I.A. still works as an artist and activist, so hopefully they’ve parted without rancor. She had had a unique life long before meeting Benjamin Bronfman, and there’s a documentary about her. I haven’t watched it but might sometime.

The undercurrents around many of these Necker characters are just like an echo chamber, and there are, in chain reaction, thousands of names to be named. Some of the job titles being held by the elitist links of nepotism are amazingly bald mumbo-jumbo, and Benji is certainly no exception. Conservation and alternative energy “resources” have rarely looked quite so questionable or alienating, reading between the lines.

Ghislaine Maxwell wanted to save the oceans for elite usage and exclusivity too and also passed it off as altruism. What puke it is. The Beautiful and the Damned, and there is no “us and them,” not really.

Thank you to two writers, F. Scott Fitzgerald and R.D. Laing. Living the mystery, one resorted to too much Zelda and too much booze, and the psychiatrist’s son, Adrian, when asked about life with father, said “when people ask me what it was like to be R.D. Laing’s son, I tell them it was a crock of shit.” And then he laughed while shaking his head.

So I say shoot it on home, Shadow State. Perfection just seems like a big old illusion anyhow. It leaves no room at the inn for any paradoxes.

Still watching a whole lotta islands right now, including many in proximity to Necker, and I have to strive more to try to stay on-topic here at the Frank Report but keep moving, to see the vastness and its worldwide webs, with all too many details. These boys and girls who have bought or who lease islands are material for several ocean-going books and movies. Shall we make a list or two? And follow it consecutively with the names in the Epstein/Maxwell black books? How about an older photo of Ghislaine with former mayor Mike Bloomberg and then, throw in one of Les Wexner with Clare and Sara Bronfman’s father together, making an immense donation. Curiouser and curiouser

Aside from islands and continents, as someone who’s fascinated by aviation, there have been many air crashes lately to be examining. (One of our family was flying the Hump during WWII, as a very young officer and navigator in a B-24, so aviating and its perils has been one lifelong, lively conversation.) So many interesting air accidents with eye witnesses or not, reports often seemingly inconclusive.

Never a sparrow falls. There is nothing forgettable, not even misinformation.

So with that in mind, anyone who has birthdates, etc. for people other than Raniere, Allison Mack Crack is Wack or Clare Bronfman, the birthdates of any who were arrested or who are integral to the Nxivm/DOS storylines, please publish the info in some gossip here.

The 3 oddballs mentioned above all had easily retrievable birth data. But I’d like very much to analyze Nancy and Lauren’s astrological pieholes, so to speak.

*Pretty please, if any of you know any of these characters’ birthdates.*

I’ve been (quietly, very quietly) studying, erecting and reading birthcharts for 54 years and really appreciate being able to look into the design of someone’s “birthprint” and its potentials and will be glad to keep quiet about any astrological analysis so as not to offend anybody who is serious about finding astrology beneath contempt.

Mainly, if anyone knows Nancy or Lauren’s dates of birth, please lemme see. Thank you if you can help. Forget about the hapless Teresa Russell, though. That would be like casting a chart for someone’s Ford Pinto.

The first I remember hearing about M.I.A. was in 2012 when she was in Madona’s Super Bowl Half Time show.
M. I. A. was specifically told by Madonna, the NFL and the NBC network not to “flip the bird” so to speak because that gesture infuriates the FCC, the network affiliates and the corporate sponsors.
So what does M. I. A. do?
She flips the bird., of course.
The NFL sued M.I.A. for her obscene gesture and they settled out of court.
I wonder if Bronfman money paid for her legal expenses.

HELLO, Shadow! I always knew you had it in you if only you’d get off your Allie wackiness long enough to get your facts straight.

Yes, NXIVM has most always been a full family affair — whether being convened — as the Bronfman’s & Oxenberg’s & their Salinas’ sponsors thusly were at Necker Island — or rent asunder as Clare once spake of — with her wise counsel, Steve “The Man” Coffee, by her side on an Albany talk radio show promoting the Dalai Lama’s 2009 visit there — while explaining why Keith Raniere had such a bad reputation, locally.

As Clare explained with Mr. Coffee’s blessing — Keith Raniere’s low esteem among the local villagers was all simple due to a “rift in a family.”

Poetic Justice would be well served were the Bronfman (and Salinas and Oxenberg and Fernandez and even the lowlier victim’s such as the Pippino or Snyder families) were to sue the bejesus out of “The Man,” Mr. Coffee, and his crooked collegues for malpractice. For starters.

And since it appears that Kevin Trowel Investigation the EDNY promised took an unexpected turn in favor of the corrupt and yet, apparently, brainwashed, a more civil corruption remedy may be called for.

My guess is Teny Gregaros must be great in the sack. Not to unlawfully delve into anyone’s private life but maybe Mr. Trowel can at least share one teeny Teny tidbit of his findings with us: How GREEK is she?

…Or maybe it’s that smooth, undercover operator with ballerina moves, Roger Kirsopp, not Teny who’s got Trowel all tongue-tied?

Heidi, If you saw what I had to say about Allison Mack, Nancy Salzman and Lauren Salzman in my letter to Judge Garaufis, you would be shocked.
I take all three women to task for their “Hard Core Criminal Behavior” and Obstruction of Justice.
And I will not take back one word of what I wrote about Allison Mack and Nancy and Lauren Salzman.

The judge probably put your letter in File 13, as you had zero interaction with NXIVM. Why do you think we would be shocked by reading your letter? Why not publish your letter here and let us decide for ourselves whether we’re “shocked” or not?

Where do you come up with Lolita as one of his favorite books? I call BS. Making crap up in your own head to pad your narrative.

‘Where do you come up with Lolita as one of his favorite books?”

Nicki Clyne’s social media.
She lists important books and authors.
All were books and authors Raniere liked and recommended.

Nicki lists Ayn Rand the philosopher and author of “Atlas Shrugged” and”The Fountainhead”.
Ayn Rand matches Raniere’s political philosophy.
She also lists “The Little Prince” by French aristocrat, writer, and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
And Nicki listed “Lolita” by Russian born American writer Vladimir Nabokov.
Nabokov wrote “Lolita” which matches Raniere’s sexual proclivities.

Did Raniere like the books and authors or did Clyne claim he did?

Not surprised that YOU would focus in on Lolita, seeing as it it involves an older man’s obsession with a younger woman.

Much the way a then fiftysomething Shadowstate was rather smitten by a late twenty something Allison Mack (playing a teenage Chloe). So “Lolita” would seem to match your sexual fantasies as much or more than Raniere’s sexual proclivities.

Your association of Nabokov with “high culture” is rather amusing, but then again you are writing at the level of one who is struggling to complete your third year at a two year community college..

Maybe M.I.A. was the actual sex-bait there to “recruit” Sir Richard, and not K.L.K. as posters have said.

Maybe NXIVM provided a buffet or smorgasbord of women for Sir Richard Branson to choose from.
A few blonde women, a Eurasian woman and a woman from South Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
