Nicki Clyne is Allison Mack’s wife, who is being divorced after defending her actress partner in her extremely scandalous sex cult case. The divorce was filed last December.


Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne anticipated a long and happy life when they married in 2017. However, all those dreams fell apart when Mack filed for divorce on December 11, 2020, in Orange County, California.

It’s being alleged that Mack exploited marriage equality by marrying the Canadian-born star to ensure Clyne would be able to remain in the US so she could continue playing her part in a cult.

The divorce occurs amid the “Smallville” actress’s tongue-wagging charges for being a part of the NXIVM sex cult. Mack, 38 in 2021, pled guilty to two counts of racketeering and racketeering conspiracy.

She made the plea in April 2019 after she was found to be the key procurer behind the NXIVM cult. Last year, the actress faced forty years of jail time for her role in the organization before her separation from her wife.


In June 2021, Mack was finally sentenced to three years in prison on charges of manipulating women into becoming sexual “slaves” for the group’s spiritual leader and founder, Keith Raniere.

The Dominus Obsequiouis Sororium (DOS) cult was said to be a secret society for the highest-ranking female members within the self-help group NXIVM. It allegedly branded its members with the initials of their leader.

Clyne was allegedly also part of the secret sorority, and it’s claimed she recruited people for the cult. NXIVM was said to be a self-improvement group that offers classes that teach people how to live successful lives.

Mack’s estranged wife has defended the alleged cult before by writing a letter denying the organization is a sex cult. She also defended Raniere’s role in the organization while admitting some things reported were true.

According to reports, Clyne was still involved with the organization. A previous “Vice” report said she was involved with an NXIVM-connected activist group that uses the names "The Forgotten Ones" and "We Are As You."

The group was allegedly formed in July 2020 and claims its goal was to achieve prison reform connected with the Black Lives Matter movement. However, their sole interest appears to be something else.


The report stated that the organization aimed to bring attention to what they see as the wrongful imprisonment of Raniere. Last year they staged dances outside the Metropolitan Detention Center where Raniere was being held.

Last October, Clyne wrote a letter to a Brooklyn federal judge ahead of Raniere’s sentencing revealing that they were “partner[‘s]” for ten years. She felt she would’ve known if the organization was created for sinister reasons.


Some people might recognize Clyne as Cally Henderson Tyrol on the Sci-Fi Channel’s reboot of “Battlestar Galactica.” The actress allegedly quit her regular “Battlestar” role “to follow Raniere.”

In 2018, journalist and blogger Frank Parlato said Clyne had been in the cult for twelve years at that time. Parlato had worked for NXIVM between 2007 and 2008, but he wasn’t a member of the New York group.


In 2002, she also appeared in an episode of “The Twilight Zone” and has featured on “The L Word.” She’s also had roles on “John Tucker Must Die,” “Dead Like Me,” and “Dark Angel.”

Mack’s wife’s most recent roles were as a voice-over artist for 2010’s “Godkiller: Walk Among Us,” and she also starred as Gail Gartner in the television show “Personal Space.”


Since Mack was out on bail, Clyne, 37, wasn’t able to speak to her for a year and a half as part of her bail conditions. The actress wasn’t allowed to speak to anyone who was affiliated with the case or NXIVM.

Besides being an actress, Clyne is also a writer, television host, and news analyst, according to her website. It also states that she works with prisoners, and advocates for free speech, among other things.
