New unearthed tweets reveal that Smallville actress Allison Mack reached out to Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson to invite them to her controversial self-help group/alleged sex cult Nxivm.
As we reported, the leader of the group, Keith Raniere, was recently slapped with sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy charges after being arrested in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and extradited to Fort Worth, Texas. Mack allegedly helps Raniere recruit for DOS, the supposed secret inner circle of NXIVM, which has been accused of branding, starving, and beating members, especially when they don’t recruit “slaves” for their organization.
As such, the 35-year-old actress was arrested on Friday and charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor in conspiracy in connection with Nxivm.
Back in 2016, Mack tried to contact the Harry Potter alum about an “amazing women’s movement” that she thought “she’d dig.”
“.@EmWatson I’m a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women’s movement I think you’d dig. I’d love to chat if you’re open.”
After getting no response, she messaged again a month later:
“.@EmWatson I participate in a unique human development & women’s movement I’d love to tell you about. As a fellow actress I can relate so well to your vision and what you want to see in the world. I think we could work together. Let me know if you’re willing to chat.”

On International Women’s Day of that year, she tried again:
Three years before that, Mack tried getting in touch with the American Idol alum, trying to reel her in because of her connection to Smallville:
Wow. Fortunately neither celeb responded… publicly, anyway.
According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York, Mack was allegedly “one of the women in the first level of the pyramid immediately below Raniere.” She faces a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison if convicted on all of her charges.
The statement says Mack had “slaves” underneath her and “directly or implicitly required” two women “to engage in sexual activity with Raniere”:
“In exchange, for this, Mack received financial and other benefits from Raniere.”
Last reporting said Mack is engaged in plea deal negotiations, and she is due in court on May 3. We’ll keep you posted.
