PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Meek Mill “I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including Jay-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time,” Meek said in a statement to TMZ. “While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive.” “To the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, I’m grateful for your commitment to justice – not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct. Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues.

It Looks Like Smallville Actress Allison Mack Tried To Introduce Emma Watson & Kelly Clarkson To Alleged Sex Cult

Scary! New unearthed tweets reveal that Smallville actress Allison Mack reached out to Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson to invite them to her controversial self-help group/alleged sex cult Nxivm. As we reported, the leader of the group, Keith Raniere, was recently slapped with sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy charges after being arrested in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico [...] Scary! New unearthed tweets reveal that Smallville actress Allison Mack reached out to Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson to invite them to her controversial self-help group/alleged sex cult Nxivm. As we reported, the leader of the group, Keith Raniere, was recently slapped with sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy charges after being arrested in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and extradited to Fort Worth, Texas. Mack allegedly helps Raniere recruit for DOS, the supposed secret inner circle of NXIVM, which has been accused of branding, starving, and beating members, especially when they don't recruit "slaves" for their organization. As such, the 35-year-old actress was arrested on Friday and charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor in conspiracy in connection with Nxivm. Related: Did Twitter Identify Stormy Daniels' Threatening Thug? Back in 2016, Mack tried to contact the Harry Potter alum about an "amazing women's movement" that she thought "she'd dig." She wrote: ".@EmWatson I'm a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women's movement I think you'd dig. I'd love to chat if you're open." After getting no response, she messaged again a month later: ".@EmWatson I participate in a unique human development & women's movement I'd love to tell you about. As a fellow actress I can relate so well to your vision and what you want to see in the world. I think we could work together. Let me know if you're willing to chat." .@EmWatson I'm a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women's movement I think you'd dig. I'd love to chat if you're open. — Allison Mack (@allisonmack) January 24, 2016 .@EmWatson well to your vision and what you want to see in the world. I think we could work together. Let me know if you're willing to chat — Allison Mack (@allisonmack) February 19, 2016 On International Women's Day of that year, she tried again: @TheCathyJensen @EmWatson Thank you for the bump up! Would love to chat with a fellow change-maker! #InternationalWomensDay — Allison Mack (@allisonmack) March 7, 2016 Three years before that, Mack tried getting in touch with the American Idol alum, trying to reel her in because of her connection to Smallville: @kelly_clarkson I heard through the grapevine that you're a fan of Smallville. I'm a fan of yours as well! I'd love to chat sometime. — Allison Mack (@allisonmack) July 20, 2013 Wow. Fortunately neither celeb responded... publicly, anyway. According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of New York, Mack was allegedly "one of the women in the first level of the pyramid immediately below Raniere." She faces a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison if convicted on all of her charges. The statement says Mack had "slaves" underneath her and "directly or implicitly required" two women "to engage in sexual activity with Raniere": "In exchange, for this, Mack received financial and other benefits from Raniere." Last reporting said Mack is engaged in plea deal negotiations, and she is due in court on May 3. We'll keep you posted. [Image via Nicky Nelson/Sheri Determan/WENN.].....»»
