Like Smallville actress/ alleged sex-cult collaborator Allison Mack, India Oxenberg( above, slip) could’ve ceased up facing life imprisonment for her involvement with NXIVM.
But her mother, Catherine Oxenberg, wasn’t about to let that happen.
The Dynasty star appeared on NBC News’ Megyn Kelly TODAY Tuesday , opening up up about trying to save her daughter from the so-called “sex-slave cult” disguised as a self-help planned.
In the interrogation, the actress told Kelly she found out India was in trouble after she was tipped off by a group member, and tried everything she could to pulling her daughter away from the organization.
When involvements and calmly going to the authorities didn’t production, Oxenberg said she had no choice but to go public with her predicament — which is what she says ultimately saved the 26 -year-old.
“If you look at Allison Mack right now,[ she is] facing life imprisonment. If I hadn’t done what I had done, perhaps my daughter India would be sitting where Allison is today. And I couldn’t make that risk.”
As we reported, Mack, a high-ranking member in the group, was arrested in Mexico alongside NXIVM founder Keith Raniere on prices of sex trafficking in human beings and forced labor.
Oxenberg couldn’t be more counteracted over the arrests of these group governors, because she said going public with her daughter’s place placed a big target on her back, interpreting 😛 TAGEND
“I’m so incredibly grateful because if they hadn’t been arrested I would have had to run for my life … I received threats myself.”
The 56 -year-old was indicated that her daughter wants to stay out of the spotlight, but yielded her permission to say “she’s moving on with her life.”
Oxenberg, nonetheless, isn’t standing silent. In point, she wrote a record on the whole affliction entitled, Captive: A Mother’s Crusade to Save Her Daughter from a Terrifying Cult.
