Troubling new details are emerging about the allegations against leader Keith Raniere, who authorities accuse of being a cult leader who operated a ring of sex slaves.
The cult allegedly employed former Smallville star Allison Mack to recruit women as sex slaves in Nxivm. The women were allegedly branded and told they had to keep the situation a secret or face publicly humiliation.
The full court documents, as looked over by The Daily Mail, show that investigators claim Raniere wanted the women involved to be “exceptionally thin” and that they were put on strict diets and forced to document their food consumption.
If they broke Raniere’s rules, they were allegedly “forced to wear fake cow udders over their breasts while people called them derogatory names.” They were also thgratened with being caged.

The alleged cult had the veneer of a pretty typical New Age self-help group. In the below video, you can watch alleged co-conspirators Keith Raniere and Allison Mack discuss “authenticity.”
