Smallville Alum Allison Mack Accused Of Being A Sex Cult Leader"s Right Hand Woman — Details Here!

What would Superman think about this?? Back in October, The New York Times wrote about a secret sisterhood who've been accused of branding, starving, and beating members — especially when they don't recruit "slaves" for their organization.

Back in October, The New York Times wrote about a secret sisterhood who've been accused of branding, starving, and beating members -- especially when they don't recruit "slaves" for their organization. Whoa. Related: Charlie Sheen Accused Of Raping Corey Haim The group, which is referred to as DOS, is allegedly for the highest ranking females in the self-help group NXIVM. NXIVM may seem like an average self-help organization, but to those who've escaped the organization, it's a cult where members have been brainwashed to follow founder Keith Rainere and his teachings. In fact, as we previously reported, Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg has spoken out against the group as they've allegedly brainwashed her daughter, India. To make matters worse, it's since been revealed that an "Emmy Award-winning actress" is a "key recruiter" for DOS. While early reports didn't name the actress, DailyMail.com has revealed that Smallville actress Allison Mack is the powerhouse aiding Rainere. Frank Parlato, a former spokesperson for the group, has also gone into detail about Mack's role in the controversial organization. Per The Frank Report, Parlato claims Allison created DOS in an attempt to birth an international organization that'd be a "force for good and a female force against evil." However, the sorority is riddled with twisted hazing rituals as only the most loyal NXIVM female members are allowed to apply for DOS. To qualify, applicants must turn over any damning material -- such as bank statement and/or pornographic material. Related: Corey Feldman Names One Of His Sexual Abusers Although the organization claims they collect this material to prove "trust" among the women, ex-members allege the higher ups use this information to keep them quiet. Supposedly, DOS works as a master-slave hierarchy, with Rainere and Mack at the top. Now, despite being Keith's immediate subordinated, Allison allegedly has many slaves of her own in the group. It's said the women involved are kept on a 500 to 800 calorie a day diet since the leader feels fat "interferes" with his energy levels. Not to mention, Mack introduced corporeal punishment to the group in order ensure fast responses from "slaves." Once female participants are deemed worthy, they are forced to strip at an initiation ceremony and are then branded with a symbol featuring Rainere and Mack's initials. There's a sex component to this group as Keith has allegedly created his own harem. The report states: "[Mack] has assumed the top position in the harem... Miss Mack has proven capable in the recruitment department replacing many aging harem members with younger, more nubile women." Man, oh man. NXIVM has certainly downplayed Parlato's outlandish allegations as they've noted previously in a statement: "The allegations relayed in the story are built upon sources, some of which are under criminal investigation or already indicted, who act as a coordinated group. We will explore any and all legal remedies to correct these lies." In case you were unaware, Frank has been wrapped up in a legal battle with Raniere and two other members as they've claimed Parlato has defrauded them. Nonetheless, the TV starlet hasn't denied her association with the group as she has openly talked about her work with Raniere on her personal website. Huh. Hopefully, the truth about this organization comes to light sooner rather than later!! [Image via Instagram.].....»»

VOTE: Armie Hammer Apologizes To Casey Affleck — But Does Affleck Deserve It??

Even before he was being called a beneficiary of white privilege in an article that eventually led him to delete his Twitter account, Armie Hammer was courting controversy. In one interview, he spoke about the unfair "double standard" in how his Birth Of A Nation director Nate Parker and Manchester By The Sea star Casey Affleck [...] Even before he was being called a beneficiary of white privilege in an article that eventually led him to delete his Twitter account, Armie Hammer was courting controversy. In one interview, he spoke about the unfair "double standard" in how his Birth Of A Nation director Nate Parker and Manchester By The Sea star Casey Affleck were treated by the media and the industry. With Nate in "director's jail" and Casey having a Best Actor Oscar on his shelf, it's easy to see his point. Video: Timothee Chalamet Calls His Sexual Chemistry With Armie The 'Random Luck Of The Universe' However, the two men were accused of very different things as Armie took the time to explain in a lengthy apology to Affleck for the comparison. The Call Me By Your Name star released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, where his original interview appeared, saying: "I would like to sincerely apologize to Casey and his family for my recent comments about him in my THR interview. Without knowing the facts about the civil lawsuits at issue (which I now understand were settled), I misspoke. I conflated sexual harassment cases with a criminal case involving sexual assault charges. The cases in which Casey was involved were not criminal and instead involved civil claims from his 2010 movie I'm Still Here. While intending to make a social comment about double standards in general, I mistakenly compared reports of prior, public civil allegations that never proceeded to trial with a criminal case that was fully tried. I understand now that this was a poor comparison, which I deeply regret making." There definitely is a difference between the two charges, and the way they were resolved. However, does that mean the observation of the double standard was incorrect? Yes, considering the charges were different, one would certainly expect Parker and Affleck to suffer proportional levels of public admonishment. But that isn't what happened. One got denounced, the other was given the biggest honor in Hollywood. We guess what we're asking is, do YOU think Casey Affleck deserved this apology?? [Image via Adriana M. Barraza/WENN.].....»»

Here’s what the 31-year-old Call Me By Your Name actor had to share: On Nate Parker and Casey Affleck‘s sexual misconduct allegations: ““Nate had the stuff in his past, which is heinous and tough to get beyond. I get that. But that was when he was 18 and now he’s in director jail. At the same time, the guy who went and won an Academy Award has three cases of sexual assault against him. And [Parker] had one incident — which was heinous and atrocious — but his entire life is affected in the worst possible way. And the other guy won the highest award you can get as an actor. It just doesn’t make sense, you know? I’m not saying Nate should not have been in trouble. I’m saying that they got in different levels of trouble. And that’s the disparity. It’s like there are two standards for how to deal with someone who has this kind of issue in their past, you know?” On sexual abuse in Hollywood: “It’s been permissible for too long for people in positions of power to abuse, and for the powerless to be expected to just take it. The system seems to be shaken, and thank God.” For more from Armie, visit HollywoodReporter.com......»»

Kelly Cutrone Says Russell Simmons Tried To Rape Her As The Mogul Continues To Deny Allegations With Polygraph Tests!

Another woman comes forward… In a Page Six report published on Thursday, America's Next Top Model star Kelly Cutrone says Russell Simmons tried to rape her in 1991. According to The Hills alum, when she was 26, she bumped into the Def Jam co-founder at a party where he invited her to his apartment. Although she declined, [...] Another woman comes forward... In a Page Six report published on Thursday, America's Next Top Model star Kelly Cutrone says Russell Simmons tried to rape her in 1991. According to The Hills alum, when she was 26, she bumped into the Def Jam co-founder at a party where he invited her to his apartment. Although she declined, she agreed to go with the mogul to his friend's place. Related: Louis C.K. Breaks His Silence: 'These Stories Are True' However, the People's Revolution founder believes Simmons actually took her back to his apartment, where the alleged assault occurred. Cutrone recalls: "He pushed me into his apartment and then he threw me down on the floor and literally tried to grab… take my clothes off of me... And I started kicking him really, really hard, screaming, telling him to get the fuck off of me. And that I would have him killed if he ever fucking laid a hand on me... I actually think I told him I would call Page Six! I was a publicist! I think I told him I would call Page Six and have him murdered." After the alleged attack, the publicist immediately left the residence. "[Simmons] was just really shaken up and I fucking split. I remember running out the door and getting a cab and all I remember was that I got in a cab and I remember a feeling — which was so crazy — of, 'Oh my god. Somebody just tried to rape me. What do I do?' And then the energy of going to the police and pressing charges against him was overwhelming to me... Then what would happen afterward — and this would happen years afterward — I'd be at a table and Russell fucking Simmons would come up to the table and then people would be like, 'Kelly, do you know Russell?,' and I'd be like, 'Yes, I know Russell — he tried to rape me.'" While Simmons has yet to directly address Cutrone's claims, he has responded to the numerous accusations against him by saying: "I vehemently deny all these allegations. These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual." In addition to the New York Times and Los Angeles Times reports published on Wednesday, at least 12 women have publicly accused the music exec of sexual misconduct, with some claiming rape. Unfortunately for Simmons, the police are now officially involved. According to the LA Times, an unidentified NYPD spokesperson says authorities have opened an investigation against Simmons, and are in the initial stages of contacting alleged victims. At least seven accounts allegedly happened in New York. One of the women -- Sherri Hines -- says she was contacted by officials early Thursday. In the aforementioned LA Times piece, Hines says the author raped her in his office in 1983. Simmons' attorney, Brad Rose, says his client "fully supports and will cooperate with the police inquiry and is confident of a swift resolution." Despite the overwhelming amount of claims against him, Russell is doing everything in his power to clear his name. According to an image obtained by TMZ, on Wednesday, Kimora Lee Simmons' ex reportedly passed a lie detector test where, his team says, the results allegedly prove he did not assault accuser Keri Claussen Khalighi. In 1991, Khalighi says Simmons forced her to perform oral sex on him while director Brett Ratner sat and watched. Simmons' other attorneys, Michael Sterling and E. Carlos Tanner, say their client will continue to take polygraph tests to discredit claims made by four other women. In case you missed it, prior to the polygraph news, Russell teased on Instagram early Thursday that he will "properly defend [himself]" against Khalighi's claims. He says on Friday, he will focus on "the case of [another alleged victim] Jenny Lumet," who made her accusations in a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter. [Image via Ivan Nikolov/WENN.].....»»

Brett Ratner"s Rape Accuser Opens Up In Emotional Interview After Being Hit With Defamation Lawsuit

As we previously reported, Melanie Kohler alleged the director had raped her in a Facebook post last month, which she almost immediately took down after getting a phone call from Brett's lawyer, Marty Singer. Related: Charlie Sheen Accused Of Raping Corey Haim The former assistant recalled being "shocked" over the threat of a defamation lawsuit -- which Brett has since gone forward with: "I posted on Facebook and was just starting to feel healing about it all, and about an hour and a half after I posted, my cell phone rang... I was scared and shocked." Melanie also added how her best friend at the time recalled her recounting the alleged sexual assault, and why she never went public at the time about it: "It's so embarrassing. It's so humiliating. It's not something that you ever want to relive again and it just felt like there was nothing that I could do. I didn't think the police could help me. I didn't know if anyone would be willing to go up against someone so powerful and it just was easier for me to not relive it." Now, she says she "can't get through the day without being reminded of it." The Hawaii resident hopes her going public with her story will help women feel more comfortable speaking out about someone "more powerful than you, has more money than you and when everything feels stacked against you." She continued: "If I have to risk my life and what I've worked so hard for in my life in Hawaii to be the voice that helps other women come forward, then I am prepared to do that." Her lawyer, Robbie Kaplan, also added she believes the defamation lawsuit against Melanie is just a ploy to silence women: "We're here to send a very strong message that it's not going to stop Melanie from speaking and it's not going to stop other women from speaking." And they intend to call on "at least three dozen witnesses" if it goes to court. In response, the Rush Hour 2 director's lawyer released a statement: "Brett Ratner vehemently denies the outrageous derogatory allegations that have been reported about him, and we are confident that his name will be cleared once the current media frenzy dies down and people can objectively evaluate the nature of these claims." And reacting to Robbie's staement, Singer added: "It is nonsense that the defamation lawsuit filed against Ms. Kohler is a tactic of 'trying to silence women.' No such thing is occurring."

Related: 911 Call From Aaron [...] Aaron Carter is grateful to have girlfriend Madison Parker by his side during this tough time. In fact, while speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the Fool's Gold artist couldn't stop gushing about the professional photographer. The former child star even revealed that he hopes to marry Miz Parker one day. Ooh la la! Related: 911 Call From Aaron Carter's DUI Bust Released During the latest released bit from Aaron's Monday chat with the outlet, the Aaron's Party performer noted that he just wants to "live life and be happy" alongside his main squeeze. Nick Carter's brother explained: "I wanna be married. I wanna be engaged to my beautiful girlfriend, Madison. I wanna be a good father, a good role model, a strong role model." Later in the interview, the pop star stated that he also wants "lots of babies," specifically daughters. Awwww. Madison, who joined Carter during the sit down, confirmed that they first met via Instagram. On their modern love story, Carter recalled: "She's a professional photographer and she wanted to do a shoot with me and I thought she was beautiful, so we FaceTimed for three days. When I got home to LA… I took her off to Moonshadows and I took her out to dinner." And it appears as though the camera savvy lady is VVV smitten with Hilary Duff's ex. Madison added: "I wanted to shoot him for a magazine because I was like, 'Everyone wants to know what Aaron Carter's been up to.' And so then that's how we initially met. And I told him, 'You're one of the only guys that courted me.'… He's not one of those typical L.A. guys that says, 'Oh, let's go grab a drink." Fair enough. Outside of Aaron's celebrity status, Parker fell in love with "how sweet he was." She continued: "I instantly saw that he had the biggest heart ever. That's what a lot of people don't understand or don't care to understand or take the time to understand." Madison's unconditional love clearly means the world to the 29-year-old as he claimed that being with Madison and her family is the only time where he feels "at home." And like his brother Nick, Aaron could "absolutely" see himself participating in a reality show about his life with his lady. We mean, he's already been a reality TV star thanks to the House Of Carters. Although the twosome have had "a couple offers so far," Madison revealed the idea of being on a TV show makes her "nervous." Regardless, she liked the "Bonnie and Clyde" angle her man pitched to the cameras. Well, they already have the matching mugshots. (In case you forgot, Parker was arrested alongside the hitmaker on Saturday.) At the end of the day, we're just glad to see that Aaron has someone in his corner. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

And since the rapper was cleared of any wrongdoing, he's ready to completely put this behind him. Related: Peter Jackson Confirms Mira Sorvino & Ashley Judd Were Blacklisted By The Weinsteins! Nah, we're just kidding. He's about to sue! According to his attorney, Scott Rosenblum, Nelly is planning a lawsuit because he was "a victim of deceitful allegation devoid of credibility." See the full statement provided to Entertainment Tonight, which also takes pains to also note that, yes, Nelly is a supporter of the #MeToo movement (below): "The formal close of the investigation into the false allegations made against Nelly is of course welcome -- however expected. We were confident, that what our investigation revealed from the outset of this allegation would ultimately be clear and Nelly would be vindicated. A thorough investigation did show Nelly was a victim of deceitful allegation devoid of credibility. Credible evidence did show this accuser to be deceptive. We have been in constant communication with the King County authorities and welcomed and appreciated the diligence in which the authorities proceeded. Leaving no stone unturned. Nelly recognizes the need for women who are victims of sexual assault of any kind to be heard and our existing systems changed. Nelly supports various women's advocacy groups that deal with Sexual Assault, and violence against women and is dedicated to raising awareness and furthering the conversation to bring about necessary changes. However,this type of reckless false allegation cannot be tolerated as it is an affront to the real survivors of sexual assault. Nelly has suffered very real damage to his reputation. He has incurred economic loss and painfully has watched his family suffer. As a result Nelly is planning to proceed with litigation as the first step in restoring his reputation."
