Now she’s sorry.
Nxivm sex-cult “slave master” Allison Mack apologized “to those who have been harmed by my actions,” in a letter filed in Brooklyn Federal Court ahead of her June 30 sentencing.
Calling her devotion to deranged Nxivm leader Keith Raniere “the biggest mistake and greatest regret of my life,” Mack groveled, “I am sorry to those of you that I brought into Nxivm. I am sorry I ever exposed you to the nefarious and emotionally abusive schemes of a twisted man.”
The former “Smallville” actress served as a top member in Raniere’s depraved group — in which women were branded like animals with his initials and blackmailed into having sex with him.
Mack, 38, pleaded guilty in April 2019 to racketeering and racketeering conspiracy charges, including extortion and forced labor. Each charge carries a prison sentence of up to 20 years.
She’s been on home confinement as she awaits her sentencing, which was delayed for months.
“This period of isolation has been the most devastating, but transformative time of my life,” she wrote in the letter filed on Friday.
She credited her home confinement with providing the “strength I needed to confront the darkest parts of myself and come to terms with the pain my actions have inflicted on so many people I love.”
“It is now of paramount importance to me to say, from the bottom of my heart, I am so sorry… I threw myself into the teachings of Keith Rainire [sic] with everything I had.”
Mack apologized to the friends and loved ones who “fought hard to show me the truth about Nxivm and Keith.”
“I pushed you away and silenced myself toward you when you were trying to save my life. … I lied to you, again and again, in order to protect the delusion I was so deeply committed to believing.”
“The list of those harmed by the collateral damage of my destructive choices continues to grow as I become more and more aware of how my choices have affected those around me,” she wrote, adding, “I am grateful that I have made it through this process alive and that I stopped when I was.”
