Kreuk, alongside fellow Smallville star Allison Mack, met Raniere after the two signed up for his self-help seminar in Albany, New York. He has since been prosecuted for running a violent sex cult called NXIVM, which is pronounced "nexium" and was started in 1998.
Vulture reports Kruek has since denied the allegations she was involved in the recruiting process. In fact, she tweeted a statement denying the allegations she was involved with sex trafficking on Thursday night. When she initially got involved, she thought NXIVM was a self-help organization.
The organization also had chapters all over the United States as well as Canada and Mexico. Raniere has also denied the allegations.
The women in the cult were vulnerable to humiliating acts, including losing weight to have sex with Raniere. They were also "branded" by having a symbol seared on their skin.
Canadian actress Sarah Edmondson, who shared her experience with NXIVM with the New York Times, voiced her support publicly for Kruek.
