Tom Welling finally speaks about Smallville co-star Allison Mack and her NXIVM sex cult case.
In the interview with Smallvilleco-star Michael Rosenbaum‘s Inside Of You podcast, he discussed the sex cult, in which Allison allegedly sent women into NXIVM world. A brutal leader named Keith Raniere blackmailed women and forced them to become sex slaves.
Recently Keith was found guilty on seven charges, forced labor conspiracy and sex trafficking conspiracy are one of the main charges.
“I didn’t know anything about it,” Toms aid. “So, there you go. I was very surprised to read anything about it. It sounds very bizarre. Allison was always a nice person around me.”
Tom Welling added: “It’s also funny that people would think we know, or that we would have some like, really like perspective on it.”
“I always say this, if somebody said, ‘Hey your brother killed someone?’ ‘No, it’s impossible. You don’t know my brother,’” Michael replied. “Now, Allison and I were never really tight on the show like you and I were. I didn’t really know where she went off and did her own thing. But like if somebody said, ‘Oh, Allison Mack killed [somebody],’ I would go, ‘No, that’s impossible.’”
Michael then added that he feels torn between “always [having] love for Allison” and the details that are coming out about the case. “I don’t know what to say or what to…other than if it’s true, it’s a tragedy.”
In April, Allison Mack pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and racketeering charges. She will be sentenced in September.
