[Blind Gossip] These two TV actresses are citizens of two different countries… but are both in a lot of trouble!
They are involved in an odd group that we’ve been telling you about for a long time. As a result, they are now facing some potentially serious legal consequences.
We hear that they knew that this battle was coming and took a small precaution to try to protect themselves.
They got married.
To each other.

The story of the Nxivm Cult just keeps getting stranger and stranger!
Blind Gossip told you about the Nxivm (pronounced “Nexium”) organization a year ago.
Nxivm recruited young women into their “executive success” organization, branded and starved them, and took photos of their v*ginas as “collateral” if the women ever tried to leave.
We told you that several celebrities had ties to the cult.
Allison Mack was one of the stars of Smallville.
She was recruited into Nxivm by another Smallville actress named Kristin Kreuk.
Here are Allison Mack and Kristin Kreuk.
Nicki Clyne was one of the stars of Battlestar Gallactica.
Clyne left Battlestar to work for Nxivm full time.
Needless to say, that was not a good career move.
At one point, Mack, Kreuk, and Clyne were all in the cult together, and were developing a website together.
The website was supposed to help college students and organizations achieve success. The real purpose may have been to recruit female college students to the organization.
Kreuk has supposedly left the cult since then. However, Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne are still deeply involved with the cult and with each other.
In fact, they got married!
Well, their marriage could be an immigration play.
Allison Mack was born in Germany but is an American citizen.
Nicki Clyne is a Canadian citizen.
Allison was tasked with finding a way to keep Nicki in the United States.
That meant an arranged marriage.
From The Toronto Sun:
Smallville star wed Canadian ‘slave’ so she could stay in U.S.
Accused sex cult leader and former Smallville star Allison Mack allegedly married Canadian “slave” Nicki Clyne so the actress could stay in the U.S.
In a new bombshell report, Art Voice reports Clyne — a former Battlestar Galactica star — was one of the women chasing cops in Mexico after cult leader Keith Raniere was busted for sex trafficking.
Sources inside the cult, called NXIVM, claimed Clyne was having trouble fulfilling her visa obligations.
They added that the daughter of Dynasty star Catherine Oxenberg witnessed the ceremony.
Here is a photo of Catherine Oxenberg with her daughter India. India was supposedly one of the first girls branded.
All three women are branded in their pubic area with Raniere’s initials and live together in Mack’s Albany, NY townhouse.
That photo is really creepy.
The love guru fled south of the border after an explosive report in The New York Times about the twisted happenings inside the cult.
Vanity Fair reported that the heiresses to the Bronfman booze fortune have shelled out more than $150 million to Raniere.
Raniere is now in federal custody and will be arraigned in Brooklyn on sex trafficking charges.
“The reason for the fake marriage is that Clyne is Canadian and Mack a U.S. citizen,” a source told Art Voice, adding that marriage is a common way for cult members who are foreign nationals to get around immigration rules.
Women from Canada, the United Kingdom and Mexico all took part in the scam.
Sources say Clyne and Mack’s relationship is not a romantic one. They also claim the Canadian was active in promoting sex trafficking and helped recruit new followers.
Both women are expected to be charged.
Keith Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March 2018.
Allison Mack was arrested by the FBI in New York on April 20, 2018. She was charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy.
Nicki Clyne may face similar charges.
We do not know the true nature of the Mack-Clyne marriage. Remember that this is a cult, so “normal” rules of behavior, relationships and marriage do not apply here.
The Toronto Sun story posits that the Mack-Clyne marriage is an immigration play.
However, according to U.S. law, their marriage may also legally protect them from having to testify against each other.
Did you catch the “battle” and “small” clues?
Nicki Clyne was one of the stars of Battlestar Galactica, and Allison Mack was one of the stars of Smallville.
Congratulations to Draconius25 for being first with the correct response and for doing a great job with the clues!
Blind Gossip was the first to tell you exactly a month ago that actresses Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne had secretly married.
Now, Frank Parlato, a former NXIVM member, is clarifying the reasons behind the marriage.
Parlato says that the two women were not in a romantic relationship with each other. They were married at the behest of cult leader Keith Raniere to prevent Clyne from being deported out of the United States.
Furthermore, Clyne is branded with Raniere’s initials and is Allison Mack’s “slave” in the cult.
From Fox News:
TV stars Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne married on orders from ‘cult’ leader Keith Raniere, source says
A raft of lurid details emerged when “Smallville” star Allison Mack was arrested and charged with sex trafficking last month on allegations she was acting as “slave master” in a secret sex cult.
Among them was the shocking revelation that Mack is married to “Battlestar Galactica’s” actress Nicki Clyne, and Fox News has learned their union was set up by their alleged cult leader, Keith Raniere.
Mack, who played Chloe Sullivan on the CW series “Smallville” for 10 years, and “Battlestar Galactica’s” Clyne gave up their careers in order to join the upstate New York-based, self-help organization NXIVM led by controversial co-founder Raniere.
“They were told to get married by Raniere and they jumped right into it,” Frank Parlato, NXIVM’s former publicist, told Fox News. “To them it was all for the greater good of the mission.”
Our sources said they got married on Raniere’s orders so that Clyne, a Canadian citizen, could remain in the United States.
Parlato added: “It wasn’t a romance at all.”
It is unclear when and under what circumstances Mack and Clyne met, but their paths crossed early on. Clyne played a small role as a waitress on an episode of “Smallville” during its first season, and, like “Smallville,” “Battlestar Galactica” filmed in Vancouver. Both stars were working in Canada during the same time frame on their respective series.

Your friends at Blind Gossip were the first to tell you back in 2018 that actresses Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne had secretly married as a form a legal protection.
This was confirmed a month later by several sources.
And now the couple is getting divorced!
Allison Mack Files for Divorce from Battlestar Galactica’s Nicki Clyne
Smallville’s Allison Mack — who pled guilty last year to racketeering charges and apologized for her involvement with the controversial, cult-like self-help group Nxivm — has reportedly filed for divorce from wife Nicki Clyne.
Mack, 38, filed for divorce from the Battlestar Galactica actress, 37, in Orange County, California on Friday.
The pair tied the knot in 2017, federal prosecutors said in court transcripts previously obtained by PEOPLE. At the time, Nxivm’s one-time publicist told PEOPLE the union was at the behest of Nxivm co-founder Keith Raniere.
The members did what they were told, although it still doesn’t make anything they did right.
Mack pled guilty to one count of racketeering and one count of racketeering conspiracy in April 2019.
Mack faces 15 years to life in prison, although a date has not been set for her sentencing.
Basically, since Allison Mack has now been found guilty and is going to prison, there is no compelling reason for her to remain in a fake marriage to Nicki Clyne.
