Trial Tuesday: Jaye: Assigned to Seduce Vanguard

By Dianne Lipson

After Nicole’s cross examination was concluded on Monday, Jaye took the stand. She continued on Tuesday.

Jaye is 29 years old. She grew up in Southern California. She was an actress and model.

She took the 5-day Nxivm intensive and enjoyed it. And on a walk with India Oxenberg, she was told about a women’s-only secret society that would build character.

Jaye was excited about the chance at what was described as a mentoring program to make her into a “badass woman”.

She gave HER first collateral to learn about the secret group known as DOS.

Jaye joined DOS.

Among her collateral [she was to give more subsequently] was a video where Jaye indicated she’d been molested by her uncle. This was, in fact, true. She testified she had been molested and was still recovering from her childhood sexual abuse.

Jaye’s parents, she testified, were drug addicts when she was young. Her mother and father were both arrested and imprisoned. Jaye was raised by grandparents.

At first, Jaye thought India was going to merely be her mentor, but after joining DOS, India informed her that she was to be her slave master.

At some point, Jaye came to Albany where she met Keith Raniere at a volleyball game.  She was emotional at the sight of him and gushed at how inspiring he and the Nxivm teachings were.

Jaye wanted to develop a T-shirt business with Raniere-inspired slogans. Keith was interested.

India and her own master, Allison Mack, told Jaye she should move from California to Albany. She was making good money modeling in LA, but she came to Albany anyway.

She was encouraged by India to develop a learning relationship with Keith.  Keith took an interest in her too.

This attractive young lady, slender, a model, was considered remarkably lucky to have Keith, the wondrous mentor, take an interest in her [as a mentor] so early in her involvement in Nxivm.

In retrospect, Jaye testified, she realized she was being groomed to be his sex slave.

She was told then that the purpose of the monthly collateral [she did not know Raniere was involved at the time] was to make her bond with DOS and with her master.

Now, she believes it was simply blackmail.

There were assignments from India, “acts of care” and “acts of self-denial”. Readiness drills. Cold showers. Standing for 30 minutes in the middle of the night.  One of Jaye’s punishments was to keep a journal of her failures.

Jaye hoped Allison would help her learn about the acting business. But she went from thinking that Allison was a good person, to later believing Allison was vindictive, hurtful, and manipulative.

As a member of DOS, Jaye was expected to recruit slaves.

Jaye actually recruited a model named Val.

Val got admitted into DOS quickly. Allison personally looked after her.

Allison asked her to think about developing an app to do mass recruitment into DOS. [Some people would not necessarily have to make life-long commitments]. It was Consumer’s Buyline [with blackmail and branding]  – the more people in DOS, the more buying power they would have.

Jaye was told that her commitment would require a small tattoo. She never thought it would be a brand, with Keith’s initials.

At one point, she had to fill out a lengthy questionnaire about her sexual preferences.

At volleyball, during breaks in the action, [Keith was playing], there would be a line of people waiting to talk to him.

One day she attended volleyball without a bra and Allison scolded her for that, saying the older women were offended.

Jaye observed that everyone kissed Keith on the lips — including the men. People would give him gifts of chocolate, candy, fruit and other items.

At one volleyball event, Keith came up to her and drew a circle with his finger around her bellybutton.

Because Jaye had been sexually abused, she was upset by this.  At volleyball, Jaye said she believes she was on display for Keith.

But, Keith was showing a marked interest in helping her, he said. Teaching her.

He took her on walks and say, “Do you know that you’re special?”

Jaye was told by Allison and India how lucky she was to have this great guru taking an interest in her.

After Jaye moved to Albany, she got permission to get access to the Dropbox which contained some of Allison’s slave pod’s collateral. Seeing this, Jaye was concerned that the collateral wasn’t as safe and secure as she was told. She saw other women’s collateral and realized she wasn’t alone in being a slave.

As part of her commands, Jaye was ordered to go on low-calorie diets. First, it was 1000, then 800, then 500-600 calories a day.  She had to measure and weigh each item of food and send pictures of the food first to get permission to eat it before she was allowed to consume it.

She had to take a 3-minute cold shower each morning. She observed that all the slaves she knew of were on a diet, and sleep deprived. Everyone, she thought, looked unhealthy.

She learned that Keith [for scientific and ethical reasons] preferred women not to shave their pubic hair. Keith said grooming was propaganda from the porn industry and violence against women.

An Assignment to Seduce Keith

She was told it was an honor and a privilege. That both Allison and India had done this fortunate act before. Jaye was assigned to seduce Keith and have him take a naked picture of her to prove she had accomplished her assignment.

Jaye was told that only the most privileged of all women ever got this happy assignment.

Jaye did not feel special. She said it was her worst nightmare. She realized this was a cult, and that they were going to force her to sleep with someone. She was told this would help with her sex abuse issues.

She was also told that Keith wasn’t involved in DOS.

Allison told Jaye that she must seduce Keith subtly [as if he did not know this was planned with Allison] but Allison added kindly to Jaye, “And I give you permission to enjoy it.”

What was Jaye thinking about Allison when she was ordered to seduce Keith?

“You fucking bitch” was her thought, she testified.

Allison was re-traumatizing her.  And clearly Jaye did not want to do this obscene act, but she pretended she would do it. From this moment on, she planned to escape DOS.

[Now what would prevent a woman from simply refusing and saying no? You guessed it: Collateral.]

Jaye was thinking about her collateral. What would they do with it if she refused to seduce Keith and leave?

After hearing her order to seduce Keith, Jaye felt the whole room was spinning. She almost blacked out.

She started Googling and found a website [Frank Report?] describing Keith having a “harem.”

Jaye even asked India – what it was like – she asked India about her experience seducing Keith.

India said that Jaye should have her own unique experience, but India said that Keith was incredibly fit and that sex with him was amazing.

Jaye knew she needed to get out of Albany. But she had to play along for a while.

She devised an idea. She had permission from her DOS masters to go on a family trip. Before she left, she went into the Dropbox account and took screenshots of all the collateral. She took copies of the collateral in the Dropbox. She did this in order to protect herself in case the DOS folks tried to blackmail her.

If she failed in her assignment to seduce Keith Alan Raniere, she thought her collateral would be released. She felt trapped. But with the other women’s collateral: [Dr. Danielle Roberts, Michelle Hatchette, Nicole’s and others in Allison’s slave pod – she could have a little reverse blackmail of her own.]

Jaye went on her family vacation. Afterward, she claimed her grandmother in California was ill and she needed to stay out there for a time and not go back to Albany.

She started doing less and less DOS work.

But Allison still had her car. Jaye hoped to just walk away from DOS.  India said this was a lifetime commitment.

Allison said Jaye needed to meet with her.

Allison said, “You can do this [DOS] as hard or easy as you want. We just want to help you.”

Jaye told her to “Just back off.”

Allison said, “I feel like I failed you.”

Jaye said,  “It’s nothing personal, but you’re ‘entitled to feel that way’ (throwing the DOS lingo back at Allison).

Jaye did manage to get her car back. Allison gave her the keys but did not tell her where the car was. Jaye had to find it herself.

Jaye told Allison she had Googled Keith and search results showed a story [stories] that Keith was a pedophile [The Albany Times Union reported it first in 2012. Frank Report also had numerous stories on pedo-Keith starting in 2015].

Allison was upset. She said, ”Do you think I would follow a child molester?”

Saved From Branding

Jaye had gotten Val in DOS and she asked Val to go on a hike. During that hike, Catherine Oxenberg and Bonnie Piesse (Mark Vicente’s wife) called.

Bonnie warned her: Don’t go to the branding ceremony coming up.

Catherine warned her to get out of Albany.

Jaye decided she had to get out of the cult. She made peace with the fact that it could mean her collateral would be released. Going was more important. She accepted the fact that it could happen.

She sent the collateral of the other women she had to her ex-boyfriend. She told him to store it safely but not to look at it. [It might come in handy – and it did – for it ultimately was given to law enforcement.]

Soon after Jaye left, she got a threatening letter from an attorney from Mexico. It was in Spanish with an English translation. The letter warned her that she was facing “criminal responsibility”.

As it turned out, Jaye’s collateral was not released.

Prosecutor: Would you have provided DOS collateral if you knew Keith was in charge?

Jaye: No.

 

Stay tuned for Jaye’s cross-examination.

    Now to all you Allison Mack people who defend Pimp Mack:
    Aren’t you ashamed of defending a fiend like Allison Pimp Mack?
    A woman who exploits and manipulates other people for her own pecuniary and sexual benefit.
    Actaeon has mentioned that Mack sucked up half the tuition of every student in “The Source” acting school.
    And the evidence from Slave Jane points to Allison having sex with many of the slaves in her pod.

    “FR: You said Allison had several female slaves. Did Allison have sexual relationships with her female slaves?
    Jane: Yes.
    FR: How many slaves do you think she had?
    Jane: Mistress Ally has 12 slaves.”

    “Oh, but Allison has such a pretty smile. She can’t be evil.”

    A shark has a pretty smile too with rows of nice white gleaming teeth.

    And the salient fact of NXIVM DOS, the sex slave cult, is that many of the top women in it were also into BDSM.
    A fact that I hope to address at a later date but here is a reminder of what I have written in the past about this subject.
    Guest View: The Real NXIVM, The Real Allison Mack
    https://frankreport.com/2018/10/23/guest-view-the-real-nxivm-the-real-allison-mack/

    • Those lines about Mack saying do it subtlely do give an impression that KR may not have known what was going on – that the women were serving up for the God what they thought he would want, an offering but without his even knowing it was contrived and instead he was made to think these women actually wanted him.

      That is probably untrue given all the other evidence, but not an impossible implication from some of the evidence given.

    • Shadow: I have always sided with you on the real Allison Mack, and you’re right. The more testimony/evidence that comes out, the more you were right all along about her. I hope the judge throws the full and maximum sentence at her.

  • Unless one is a kill-able psychopath, Raniere’s plotting, fucking, demeaning, torturing and holding women and girls in contempt, becomes not only nauseating but tiring too.

  • Jaye has a strong backbone. I’m glad she escaped.

    Mack is a psychopath who needs to be locked away for as long as possible.

  • The longer this goes on, the worse it gets. The picture of Allison Mack that comes into focus during testimony is manipulative, cruel and devious. I loved her as Chloe, but Chloe was fictional and a good person. The real Allison (and Nancy and Lauren and Pam) seems just awful.
    I can’t imagine any female trusting her after hearing all this.

  • Yucko! The “assignment” is to seduce a smelly, pumpkinhead, hairy midget? That’s also limp?

    Jaye seems like the only slave with half a brain. She immediately said, “Fk this shit! Cya l8tr Bitches!”

    I like Jaye already. Pry the Smartest NXian Ever!!!

    • Yes, sensible her.
      I don’t understand why all these women wanted to be “badass”. It sounds a morally awful kind of person to be. Surely being a kind good person should be the aim – not some kind of awkward nasty difficult person.

  • I find it somewhat refreshing (in light of the other stories) that Jaye had enough self confidence to trust her own perceptions and completely see through the crazy manipulation. KR never got a chance to list her on his score card. It may have been the emotional wall she developed from past abuse that saved her from sinking further into the Nexie Nightmare. I wonder who paid the assigned penance for her departure.

    • Obviously, they all must have become close during the Circa-jerks! (Thanks for that image Niceguy!)

  • In fact, the thought is simple: everything Raniere does is for the best!
    Good faith will be the blue light!
    And the joy will taste like nectar

  • It’s interesting to see the example of one of the women who thought to do something proactive like taking a snapshot of Allison’s DropBox of collateral – but obviously that was rare.

    Anonyme/Frenchie may be upset at what this shows about their down-to-earth Ally, but here we see more of Mack’s dark underside that other accounts have pointed to as well:

    “Jaye hoped Allison would help her learn about the acting business. But she went from thinking that Allison was a good person, to later believing Allison was vindictive, hurtful, and manipulative.”

    “Jaye was told that her commitment would require a small tattoo. She never thought it would be a brand, with Keith’s initials.”

    “Jaye did manage to get her car back. Allison gave her the keys but did not tell her where the car was. Jaye had to find it herself.”

    • Mack was deeply involved, for a long time. She was truly Raniere’s lieutenant in all this, fully committed to serving him. As facts emerge in this trial, I’m seeing her less and less as a victim. Her petty nastiness (the business with Jay’s car a perfect example) shows a real cruelty in her character. She seems to have been motivated by a real hatred of the other women. She was a smooth and practiced liar, befriending recruits in a long and intricate web of lies until she they were well trapped. That takes commitment, that takes planning. She was vicious and unrelenting, merciless in her cruelty. She’s fully as despicable as Raniere; what’s remarkable is that while he was doing this for his own gratification, it seems she got little out of it other than the pleasure of double crossing her fellow women.

  • I really like Catherine Oxenberg, but truth be told – India’s actions in DOS are not that different than Allison’s. Of course, as a mother, you want to see your child as an innocent victim – but Catherine has demonized Allison for doing pretty much the same things India has done. India was ‘indoctrinated over a long period of time’ is her reasoning – yet so was Allison! The only differences were: 1. Allison had more slaves than India 2. Allison had slaves that succumbed to the blackmail.

    Was India not charged as CC2 because her slave didn’t go through with the seduction assignment? Or was she not charged because Catherine brought a bunch of evidence to authorities? Someone, please explain!

    The impression I have gotten is that India acted like a brat towards her mother and showed favor to her stepdad Casper since he supported India’s involvement in DOS.

  • From the NY Post:

    ‘Before she left, Jay said Mack asked her, “Are you saying you think I’m an accomplice to a child molester?’’

    “Yes,” Jay said she replied.’

    There is a small but important difference from the account given above, which omits Jay’s comeback. It shows real assertiveness on Jay’s part. I like Jay, she’s fierce. She’s badass. That “Yes” is a devastating comeback, one word that tells Mack she’s a monster, she’s a phony, she’s a liar. It lets Mack know the hard, ugly truth about herself, that she’s no feminist, she’s the opposite. Mack was never empowering women, it was all a lie; she was in fact victimizing women, trapping them and delivering them to an abuser, the the perverted man who was hiding behind the curtains. It lets Mack know that she was a pimp, a betrayer.

    That “yes” put Jay in charge, shifted the power dynamic. For once it was Mack who was in tears, her world collapsing. Jay was careful, she was meticulous, she got the Dropbox evidence, and then she turned the tables. She was then able to drop the bomb. It must have been a delicious moment, taking cold, careful revenge.

    With more women like Jay, Nxivm might have imploded sooner. With more women like Jay, the world would be a better place. The world needs people who stand up for themselves, who take responsibility, who take control the way she did. The world needs guts.

    • Actaeon, i appreciate that you recognized that, “YES”. It stood out to me too as a powerful moment. Thanks for your writing.

  • Very interesting. The fact the collateral was in a drop box that others could see is really bad practice not going to be sensible even for the group itself (never mind probably breaching the law of confidentiality – they did not consent to anyone other than their specific “master” keeping it I assume). Wise of her to leave.

  • Sex with slaves who were gagging the whole time could not have been that great. Then again, I don’t think Keith cared. I would have. I would feel sick inside knowing the woman I am having sex with was only doing it through blackmail. And she was wrenching the whole time through it.
