DISGRACED former NXIVM "sex cult" member and actress Allison Mack has reportedly filed for divorce from wife Nicki Clyne.
Former Smallville star Mack is facing charges for her role in the controversial NXIVM group, which came under the spotlight in 2018 when former members made a series of shocking revelations.
According to TMZ, Mack filed for divorce from Battlestar Galactica's Nicki Clyne at Orange County Court in California on Friday.
It follows Clyne- a branded "slave master" in the controversial "sex cult" -revealing she was "proud" of everything she did in the group.
Prosecutors have alleged Mack was a high ranking member of the group and recruited women as “sex slaves” following the arrest of leader Keith Raniere.
Mack pled guilty to one count of racketeering and one count of racketeering conspiracy in April 2019.
She faces up to 40 years in prison on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy.
Her sentencing was postponed last year and a new date hasn’t been set.
But Clyne, 37 – who says she was Raniere's partner for more than 10 years – was not charged with any crime.
A self-described self-help group, NXIVM was placed under the spotlight in 2018 when former members made a series of shocking revelations about the group.
They revealed they had been forced to hand over explicit naked pictures or false accounts of abuse, had been beaten with paddles, made to starve themselves, and unwittingly branded with Raniere's initials on their groins.
Other women claimed they had been made to seduce or have sex with Raniere.
A 31-year-old woman testified in court as to how she was blindfolded and tied down to a table while Raneiere watched another woman perform a sex act on her.
Raniere was sentenced to 120 years in prison in October after he was convicted last June on seven felonies, including sex trafficking, forced labor and racketeering.
Raniere – who followers called "Vanguard" – was also found guilty of acts of extortion, identity theft and the production, and possession of child pornography.
He was arrested in Mexico in March 2018 and brought back to the US where he was arraigned in Texas, tried in New York in 2019, and is due to be sentenced on Tuesday.
