It has now come to light that she solicited other celebrities to join Nxivm.
Was she trying to turn Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson into sex slaves for Keith Raniere?
On Friday, Allison Mack entered a plea of “not guilty” for sex trafficking and forced labor.
See, even if you pretend that it’s “empowering,” it is in fact illegal to coerce people to have sex through blackmail and the threat of beatings.
Yes, it’s still illegal even if the initials are already branded on that woman’s body.
Mack is, of course, accused of recruiting women to join the pyramid scheme and then selecting which women would be ordered to Raniere’s bed.
And now it’s come out that she may have very brazenly tried to recruit two very familiar names over twitter:
Beloved Harry Potter star Emma Watson and sometimes controversial American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson.
“I’m a fellow actress like yourself and involved in an amazing women’s movement I think you’d dig,” Mack wrote.
Her tweet continued:
“I’d love to chat if you’re open.”
A month later, when Watson still hadn’t taken the bait, Mack wrote:
“I participate in a unique human development and women’s movement I’d love to tell you about.”
Well … it certainly is unique as far as women’s movements go.
Allison Mack also wrote to Kelly Clarkson.
With Clarkson, she used a somewhat vaguer approach, apparently hoping to dazzle the Since You’ve Been Gone singer with her “star power.”
“I heard through the grapevine that you’re a fan of Smallville.”
Smallville ran for 10 seasons. Its fan base was relatively small yet very dedicated.
“I’m a fan of yours as well! I’d love to chat sometime.”
Those are deceptive friendly words for such an ominous tweet.
While it doesn’t look like Watson or Clarkson fell for Mack’s invitation, that doesn’t make this any less bizarre.
It’s not surprising, however.
Mack was said to have quickly become one of Raniere’s favorites because he liked having a celebrity (or close enough) to recruit more people to Nxivm.
It only stands to reason that, either of her own volition or acting on Raniere’s orders, Mack would seek other celebrities with whom she might have an “in.”
Emma Watson is an outspoken feminist, so Mack clearly hoped that calling Nxivm a “women’s movement” would help to draw her in.
And since Kelly Clarkson apparently likes Smallville, well, who wouldn’t want to hear from an actor from a show that they love?
It’s not clear if she was determined to rope them into joining the sex slave cult, or was just trying to get them both in the “normal” self-help part of the organization to draw in more members.
There’s no doubt that Allison Mack was a major recruitment tool for Nxivm.
But some have called into question how much a willing participant she was in the abuse that she allegedly doled out.
We don’t know all of the evidence that the prosecution will present, but prosecutors may find themselves in a tricky situation.
If they successfully prove that the women in Raniere’s DOS program were unwilling participants and sex trafficking victims because of abuse and blackmail and brainwashing …
… Might Mack’s defense team use that to argue that she herself was also a victim?
They might also try to argue that, if Mack was capable of making her own choices, that the victims were all there of their own free will?
We’re not saying that we believe those arguments, but this is definitely a complicated case.
We’ll see how things work out.
Sit down, readers.
Stop operating all heavy machinery.
And take a very deep breath.
Because a new report is about to knock your socks off, while simultaneously causing your eyeballs to pop out of their sockets and your jaw to hit the floor.
We just want you to be fully prepared. Here we go…
… Robert Pattinson and Emma Watson may be dating!
We don’t have a ton of evidence on which to base this statement, except for an In Touch Weekly source who alleges the British superstars have been making love to each other for several weeks now.
Or at least building themselves up to said love making via a variety of romantic interactions.
“They’ve been texting and enjoying secret dinners together in LA and London,” this insider claims.
The actress and actor have known each other since 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the film in which Pattinson portrayed Cedric Diggory.
(Watson, of course, is best known for having played Hermione Granger in this beloved movie franchise.)
Why might Emma and Robert be drawn to each other?
“They share the same sense of humor and have so much in common. They’ve always had chemistry, but the timing has never been right – until now,” writes the aforementioned tabloid.
It certainly is true that Watson and Pattinson looked like they were having a blast when presenting on stage this past Sunday night at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards.
The mere sight of these young icons together has set the Internet on fire.
Watson has almost never been involved in a high profile romance.
She has been candid in the past about the challenges she faces as a very famous person in this regard, once commenting:
“It’s difficult in my dating life because anyone I get photographed with is automatically my boyfriend. So it just makes it look as if I’ve had, like, 6,000 boyfriends!”
Pattinson, conversely, dated former Twilight Saga star Kristen Stewart for many years. (Perhaps you read about it… absolutely everywhere for about four years.)
He split with the actress a long time ago, but then found himself a subject of the paparazzi during his relationship with FKA Twigs.
There was even chatter that Twigs and Pattinson were engaged, only for the romance to fall apart in October.
Since then, he’s actually been linked to Katy Perry, although most outlets say that singer is merely close friends with the handsome actor.
In other words: he’s single!
And so is Watson!
Which means this rumor may not be complete malarkey.
You may not return to a state of hyperventilation. In fact, we’ll go ahead and join you:
