Felon hired a private detective to ‘poison’ her pet, Toni Natalie claims in memoir.
Years before Keith Raniere was exposed as the leader of the NXIVM sex cult and found guilty of seven felonies, he spent his free time abusing his ex-girlfriend of 10 years, Toni Natalie claims in a shocking new tell-all.
In The Program: Inside the Mind of Keith Raniere and the Rise and Fall of NXIVM, out September 24, Natalie recalled what the 58-year-old was like when she met him in the 1990s and how he managed to ruin her life up until his arrest in March 2018. She also accused him of employing people to abuse and stalk her – and even killing her dog.
As Radar readers know, Raniere was found guilty on June 19 of sex trafficking and racketeering, among other dangerous crimes, and is now sitting behind bars awaiting sentencing. The cult leader’s co-defendants included Smallville actress Allison Mack, NXIVM secretary Kathy Russell, and mother-daughter duo, Nancy and Lauren Salzman, who all pleaded guilty to counts of racketeering.
