NXIVM victim says they had to sign loyalty contracts

The New York Post reports a 31-year-old actress identified only as Nicole - who is an ex-member of the organisation - testified that Mack, who has admitted to being a Nxivm recruiter, put India on a 500-calorie-a-day diet for more than a year, in an effort to get her down to 107 pounds - what she alleged Raniere determined would be India's ideal weight.

Prosecutors allege that there was a secret all-female sub-group of Nxivm called DOS in which women were allegedly forced to participate in a sex cult and be sexually subservient to Raniere. To make matters worse, according to Nicole's testimony, India was forced to stay on this starvation diet for month and months.

Jay - the alleged former slave of Nvixm member India Oxenberg, the daughter of ex-TV "Dynasty" star Catherine Oxenberg - said this was the moment she realized, "I need to get the f- -k out of here".

"Allison was having her try and get down to a certain weight", Nicole testified. She had already lost some weight, and - first of all, she looked good whatever weight she's at, but I was like you're good here, but Allison said that she needed to get down to 107 because she had picked - like, set her word to that, so she had to keep - she had to be on 500 calories a day until she got down to 107. "But it was just - it was tough, it was tough on her".

The former slave said Mack told her, "Me and India have been talking".

Raniere, who is facing a range of criminal charges including sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy, is similarly on trial in NY, although he has pleaded not guilty to charges.

"I knew India was on a restricted diet of between 500 to 900 calories, but I had no idea it was down to 500 calories for a year", said Oxenberg.

"It's so many layers of disgust".

'This is going to help you get rid of all your sexual-abuse trauma, ' the witness quoted Mack as telling her, according to the New York Post. "The layers of sadism and cruelty are endless".
