  • It appears that 'Smallville' star Allison Mack was trying to recruit Emma Watson and other celebrities to join an alleged

New unearthed tweets reveal that Smallville actress Allison Mack reached out to Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson to invite them to her controversial self-help group/alleged sex cult Nxivm.

When Mack did convince women to join the group, she allegedly lead ceremonies during which the women were branded with a symbol that, "unbeknownst to them", included Raniere's initials. But authorities allege it is a pyramid-scheme cult that recruits young women to be sex slaves.

Federal officials say Mack and Raniere operated the sex cult in Albany. Both have pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking.

CNN's Dana Bash Battles WH's Kellyanne Conway over Husband's Tweets
Despite Bash repeatedly trying to insert that attacking Conway was not the point of her questioning, Conway barreled along. She continued: "There has been a different standard for me than there have been for other people".

A month later, and after getting no response, Mack chose to tweet her again.

As a part of her bond, which was secured using her Clifton Park, N.Y. home and her parents' home and retirement account, Mack must wear an ankle bracelet, undergo cyber monitoring, attend only court appearances and attorney visits, and avoid any and all contact with anyone who is associated with NXIVM. She was scheduled to appear in court later Friday.

She is said to have worked for leader Keith Raniere, convincing women to join what they called a female empowerment group from February 2016 to June 2017. She allegedly had "slaves" underneath her in the organization and "directly or implicitly required" two women "to engage in sexual activity with Raniere", according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of NY.

Raniere also denies wrongdoing.

Willie Snead leaves New Orleans for Baltimore
Eager to add a target for quarterback Joe Flacco , the Ravens on Friday offered Snead a two-year, $10.4 million contract. While he flashed talent, it wasn't enough to avoid being released by the team before seeing regular season action.

Though she was released on bail in New York, Mack will be heading to her parents' house in California, where she will be under home detention. Raniere created a secret society within NXIVM called "DOS", in which "masters" held "slaves".

"DOS stands for 'Dominus Obsequious Sororium, ' which at least one DOS slave was told by her master translates to 'Master Over the Slave Women, ' " says a complaint.

In an undated statement posted on its website, Nxivm said it was working with authorities to demonstrate Raniere's "innocence and true character".

The speculation is that Allison is cutting a plea eal with the prosecution of this case to provide information against NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere. They face a minimum 15 years in prison and could potentially receive life if convicted.
