Former Smallville star Allison Mack may have been trying to recruit actress Alaina Huffman to join the NXIVM sex cult led by Keith Raniere by inviting her to several of the sex cult’s meetings.
It seems that Allison Mack’s NXIVM case keeps getting weirder and weirder. This time around a former fellow Smallville cast member opened up about receiving several invitations from Allison Mack to attend NXIVM’s meetings. Speaking to US Magazine, Alaina Huffman, who played Black Canary in Smallville and is nowadays promoting Netflix’s The Perfection, opened up about these NXIVM invitations that Allison Mack allegedly extended to her and why she was never able to attend to them:
“Interestingly, when I look back on it, I had been invited to several meetings, and because I had two little kids at the time, I never really had the time and our schedules never really lined up, so I never ended up attending.”
Interestingly enough, The Perfection is a film about young women abused by a cello conservatory which gave Alaina Huffman the chance to speak out about how successful women can get caught up in these types of ordeals:
“But I can see the appeal. Here was this successful young woman who was living a great life, and it was intriguing. I can see where people got recruited.”
One of the most bizarre cases in recent US legal history, the NXIVM members and Allison Mack are accused of allegedly forming and leading a sex cult ring. Some weeks ago, Allison Mack pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy and one count of racketeering (including extortion and forced labor) for her alleged time with NXIVM. Allison Mack also pleaded guilty to charges that she manipulated women into becoming sex slaves for NXIVM spiritual leader Keith Raniere. Her sentencing is set for September 11th.
Allison Mack is best known for her portrayal as Chloe Sullivan, one of young Clark Kent’s closest friends, in The CW’s Smallville some years ago. It was first discovered early last year that the former Smallville actress was involved in the NXIVM sex cult. Allison Mack was also allegedly a ring leader of the cult and headed a secret master-slave group within NXIVM called, “DOS.” In the secret group, Allison Mack branded women with her and Keith Raniere’s initials, with the women apparently being forced to comply with their assigned masters.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
