Kreuk reportedly joined the group in 2005 and recruited Mack shortly after, reported the New York Post. Sources alleged the actresses were used to recruit sex slaves for alleged cult leader Keith Raniere’s #Nxivm subgroup called “The Vow,” in which women were reportedly routinely degraded, blackmailed, and sexually abused. A former publicist for Nxivm claimed the group used underage girls as sex slaves for Raniere, and that the girls were branded with his and Mack’s initials — and that the branding was Mack’s idea.
Kreuk tweeted that she enrolled in a Nxivm course to overcome her shyness, adding, “I left about five years ago and had minimal contact with those still involved. The accusations that I was in the ‘inner circle’ or recruited women as ‘sex slaves’ are blatantly false. During my time, I never experienced any illegal or nefarious activity.”
Another former member concurred with Kreuk. “For the record, @MsKristinKreuk was never in the inner circle of NXIVM. She never recruited sex slaves and has been out since 2013 before s**t got weird. She is a lovely person who should not be dragged into this mess.”
