These Are the Celebrities Known For Being Involved With NXIVM
HBO’s 2020 documentary, “The Vow,” is a true-crime project at its core, taking on the chilling scandals of the NXIVM organization. Because the group recruited wealthy women, the sex cult and pyramid scheme underlying the self-help dogma of NXIVM also intersected with celebrity culture. Yes, cofounder Keith Raniere was at the center of it all, and he had a reputation for coercing women into sex and free labor for the organization. But Raniere’s second hand was none other than Allison Mack, who’s best known for her decade-long run in “Smallville” as Chloe Sullivan.
On July 5, The New York Times reported that Mack was released early from prison, serving two years of her three-year sentence. Meanwhile, Raniere is still serving his 120-year prison sentence. But Mack certainly wasn’t the only Hollywood star tied to NXIVM. Ahead, we’ve compiled a list of celebrities with links to the infamous cult.
