Smallville alum Allison Mack will not testify in court against NXIVM sex cult leader Keith Raniere, according to a recent report.
Even though the case against NXIVM leader Keith Raniere has been winding to the moment that Smallville star Allison Mack was going to testify against him, it seems that it won’t be happening now. Even though Allison Mack is considered one of the leader’s most trusted people in the ‘DOS’ sex cult, the prosecution didn’t list her as a witness to cross-examine at the stand against Raniere. It seems that the prosecution has enough witnesses to wrap up questioning this week.
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. Allison Mack has already 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 is currently under house arrest in her parents’ home in Los Alamitos, California. 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.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
