Today's Blind Items - The New Celebrity Cult

Want to rub shoulders with celebrities? Have a few hundred extra bucks a week to spend on books, conferences, "college" courses, spiritual guides. and even merchandise? Does this sound like Scientology? It kind of does. I'm not going to say anything is worse than Scientology. It is in a class all to itself. I will say that this new celebrity cult has a lot of the same money making ideas. It is all about the money. Oh, and the fame of some of the leaders of the cult. It also has some disturbing practices that are just now coming to light.

This cult pays a lot of money to certain young female celebrities to post all kinds of things about the cult on social media. They make it seem that if you come you are sure to run into them. You won't. Even if they do attend, they are kept away from the masses. What these celebrities do though is ensure that hundreds of young females come in to the cult each week. Do these celebrities know what happens to these young female members that come? Well, this celebrity offspring who yachts knows for sure what happens, but doesn't seem to care. This A-/B+ list singer/actress also knows what is up. This A+ list mostly movie actor knows exactly what is going on because he has been on the receiving end of some of the "fellowship" that the young women provide.

The young women are all put through a screening process. The first time they come and fill out as visitor card. That card contains blanks for e-mail and social media handles. If the woman is not considered attractive or does not have what seems to be a lot of disposable income, no followup is made with them and if they pursue the cult further, they are discouraged from attending. This is usually done through something that will turn them off from ever wanting to come back.

If you make the first cut, you are then encouraged to join a group which is made up of members remarkably similar to your own physical looks and age. The group is led by someone who has been trained to ask very probing questions of every member of the group. All of these sessions are recorded. At this point there is further vetting and once again some of the women are encouraged to not come back. This can be anything from having their purse stolen or someone being verbally abusive.

If you make it past that level, they are encouraged to attend other more intimate counseling sessions followed by some coursework. All through this period they are given constant positive feedback. They are shown videos of celebrities who tell them they have done the same thing and just take them deeper down this path of no return.

This is where it gets even more vile. All of the leaders of the cult are men. These men pick and choose which of these females they would like to counsel one on one. The females by this point have been told they need to serve and these leaders take a woman into a room that looks like a hotel room. There are dozens of these rooms in a building attached to the cult. There, these men have sex with the women. If a woman is hesitant at all, she is again encouraged to leave the cult. Once each new recruit has been sampled if you will, they are assigned to men who have joined the cult. These men have been picked because of their incomes and ability to spend a great deal of money on various cult programs. There is a minimum spend of about $25K a year. That entitles you to a worship companion. Yes, one of the women. You keep spending money you keep the worship companion. They are encouraged to have sex with the worship companions in one of the hotel like rooms where of course everything is recorded. This cult is big on making sure they have a lot of information to use should they need it.

That A+ list mostly movie actor spends about $500K a year so he has multiple worship companions he can choose from and is encouraged to spend time with them away from the cult. The cult wants to create families created from these couples which they think will make the cult stronger. Dozens upon dozens of these couples have married. The men are encouraged, even if married to interact with other worship companions because the money needs to keep flowing. The wives understand this apparently and are supposed to encourage their husbands to have as many worship companions as they can afford.

There are some men there who are spending close to $1M each year. The leaders of the cult are using this money to line their own pockets and to spread the cult to wealthier countries. That A-/B+ list singer/actress and the celebrity offspring have both been to Dubai and Asia where they have been worship companions to very very wealthy international members who also have private videos of their encounters. There is another A- list singer/actress who says until recently she didn't know any of this was going on. She says the only way she found out was when one of the females recruited told her a friend had been shipped overseas to be a worship companion in an Asian country. No one had heard from her in six months and the actress/singer was approached at a grocery store and asked for help.

The actress/singer spent an hour at a Whole Foods deli counter listening to this cult member who described everything she had done with men at the cult. That singer/actress has not been back since. When she threatened to talk about what happened, a security person from the cult visited her at home and she has not uttered a word about it since. A cult staffer is someone who is leaking things slowly and has provided all of this information.

Hillsong/Selena/Chris Pratt

Hailey Baldwin for the offspring

Selena\Chris Pratt\Hayley Baldwin

Hillsong

sandybrook said...

The celebrity offspring could also be Kourtney KTrash, her rating may fit better than Hayley.

haydnhorse said...

NXIVM?

filmfanb said...

Jesus, good on Anna Faris getting the fuck out of dodge

Glue said...

My first thought was Hillsong.

Or that other cult that those two weird girls joined - where it's one guy and all the women are for him? Or something like that? They call it women empowerment, but the women are merely there to service the men? I think one was the daughter of the girl from Dynasty. Don't quote me on that, I could be off on a couple of things, but that cult came to mind, as well.

joshg g said...

Is Olivia Munn going to join also?

MKL said...

I believe this, but it's still so scary. To this day, my own church and my (Christian) alma mater uses Hillsong hymns and whatnot. They're not plants, just use some of their materials. How fucked up.

Rikki Heinis said...

Yes, this is my thought as well. Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenburg is trying to free her daughter from this cult.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Singer/actress and celeb offspring must be Selena/Kendall Jenenr/Gigi Hadid.

Remember this trip? They toured many M.E. nations: http://www.eonline.com/news/609733/kendall-jenner-selena-gomez-and-gigi-hadid-enjoy-holiday-vacation-in-abu-dhabi-see-the-pics

No idea on the A+ actor or second actress/singer who tried to get out word and was silenced.

Poppymann said...

Amway!

Cail Corishev said...

They make the women leave if they hesitate at any stage, so I guess they're all consenting adults, right?

Tricia13 said...

Christina Grimmie is the singer who was simenced(Selena’s) friend

OMG Tricia... That is horrible if true.

A dumb idiot said...

Hillsong is associated with the Assemblies of God Pentecostal branch, which is also the denomination of Dream City from the other blinds. Can't be a coincidence.

cheesegrater15 said...

I hope Hillsong and $cientology destroy each other.

DDonna Tarttty said...

@Tricia13: Love your work and insights, but Grimmie was murdered (in a blood sacrifice for Selena IMHO), while the blind says "a security person from the cult visited her at home and she has not uttered a word about it since."

I suppose that could be very vague on purpose, but you'd think we'd get some kind of hint that the second actress/singer is dead.

Poor Selena Gomez. A decade ago, I watched her on Disney with my kids in that show about kid witches, and thought she was a decent comic actress for her age. What a waste she's made of her career, while still looking like she's 12 years old. I'm sure that makes her very appetizing to a certain clientele.

John the Savage said...

Christina Grimmie was never an A- list singer/actress and nothing suggests that the A- list singer/actress in this blind is anything but alive.

Tricia13 said...

True@Donna. Outside a gig she had done? I remembered the details (sad sad story...). And just remember thinking how off that kid looked(took his life as well)... thought he looked like a fanatic of some kind

Mem said...

The A- list singer/actress at the end could be Hailee Steinfeld

😂Plexus.

DDonna Tarttty said...

@Tricia13: Yes. Christina Grimmie was shot outside a venue in Orlando, FL, after a show.

Orlando is a nasty, ugly, evil place, loaded with dark occultists. The moment I heard the news I immediately figured she was sacrificed, and that her pal Selena's career would ramp up another level, which it has. Her name suits the cruel wits of satanists as well: CHRIST-ina GRIM-Mie (or "me"). Like how "Princess Di," ended up becoming "Princess Die," for example.

Her murder was also used as a platform for celebrities and media to shout for greater gun control. It served a lot of purposes.

But Grimmie had only one acting credit not playing herself, and I don't think she would qualify here as an "actress/singer." I don't the anti-cultist is/was her.

Mark said...

NXIVM fits the description better than Hillsong, but who are the various players in this BI?

Adrian Zmed said...

It is amazing how personally lost so many celebs are. Very sad. They fall prey to ponzi schemers, scam religions, sexaul assaulters and ultimately their own companions.

I wonder if their general lack of education helps create this petri dish.

Alexandria Anna said...

You mean Hillsong Church? They're even located near where I live. It looks creepy on the surface, and even more creepy and messed up underneath. how come people want to attend these things, it's beyond me.

longtimereader said...

Poor selina, this explains her previous yachting blinds.

Don Kieballs said...

Vanity Fair did a NXIVM story regarding Edgar Bronfman (of Seagrams) and his daughters moving $150 million of his money to NXIVM. It also talks a little about the mysterious disappearance of Kristin Snyder, who allegedly was pregnat with Raniere's baby.

Mem said...

NXIVM definitely doesn't fit this better than Hillsong. If nothing else, the celebrities involved give it away. There is no A+ list actor in NXIVM as far as anyone knows, whereas Chris Pratt is Hillsong. There is no "celebrity offspring who yachts" posting things about NXIVM on social media, whereas well-known yachting celebrity offspring Hailey Baldwin does post Hillsong stuff, including photos with Carl Lentz on her Instagram.

PG Tips said...

I read about that MzFortunate. The rumour was that Kristin Kreuk had got Alison mack into NXIVM. They also brand the girls with their initials.

Although it could be Hillsong as it matches with the blind from last week about him and the new chaperones.

Beyond EMF said...

Keith Raniere, NXIVM's leader:

"There are numerous claims that Raniere allegedly used his status to manipulate women into sex, money, and more. He has also claimed to have "had people killed."

In 2010, Vanity Fair published "The Heiresses and the Cult," a detailed account of Seagram heiresses Sara and Clare Bronfman's immersion in NXIVM; the sisters reportedly gave up approximately $150 MILLION of their trust fund to help fund the alleged cult.

Women were allegedly forced to follow brutally low-calorie starvation diets and regularly asked to provide naked photos, financial information, and criminal confessions as "collateral" to prevent them from defecting.

NXIVM holds seminars and training programs for people "concerned with developing their skills," and claims to have worked with more than 16,000 people in 30 countries. Their trademarked method called "Rational Inquiry" goes for the reported cost of up to $7,500 for an intensive, multi-day workshop."

roxy said...

Hillsong.

Buzzword "fellowship" is what confirmed it for me.

I was in mega churches like Hillsong for YEARS. Like, escorted to the front row involved. Leadership training involved.

Ouiser Boudreaux said...

Mine, too. It makes me sad because a lot of the music is so good, especially around 2004-2006. Maybe back then they weren’t doing what they are allegedly doing now. I can’t really listen to the music anymore unless this is all debunked

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

Oh god the Bronfmans. They run John McCain. These creeps go all the way back to Meyer Lansky.

laganja estranja said...

don't think it's hillsong, there's men in it too. hilllsong does seem to be just as fucked up and abusive but NXIVM or whatever markets to just women and there was another blind in here about them that goes along with this.

If this is NXIVM, who's the A+ actor?

Count Jerkula said...

Do you just get the worship companion when you are at their center or does she go home with you? $25k to basically put a whore on retainer for a year is a sound investment, but not if you can only bang her in their center.

Hillsong conference 2017

Hillsong “college courses”

https://hillsong.com/college/courses/

It’s Hillsong...

LurkyLoo said...

But hasn't Chris Pratt only been a part of Hillsong for a few months? The line "That A+ list mostly movie actor spends about $500K a year so he has multiple worship companions" makes me think he's been in it a lot longer. Didn't it only start to gain traction within the celebrity community when Justin Bieber got tight with the creepy leader last year?

The Heiress said...

The actress/singer could be Vanessa Hudgens.

TeaMe said...

I'm going with Hailee Steinfeld for the actress/singer at the end. I think she's revealed in a kindness blind before, and this seems like something she'd do

Rafael said...

At least it´s not the Trump cult. These racist rednecks are so dumb. lmao

Rafael said...

I can see Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump leading this cult. They are probably satanist. Jared is a good guess to be the Antichirst.

Don Kieballs said...

I'm still sticking with NXIVM and the actor being Gerard Butler who said about becoming sover "I know some things I will take to the grave". Just a complete guess based on he has been connected to them, smokes, and has some kind of dark secrets.

Don Kieballs said...

I'm stuck with clicking on images today, so please forgive the typos

OKC Teacher said...

@Poppymann AM WAY! LOL (total cult, IMO)
@A dumb idiot I got the two mixed up bc I fell down that rabbit hole, last Sunday
Assembly of God-Church of God, Pentecostal Holiness Churches are HUGE and involved in nearly everything, not just a little, either
Oral Roberts University seems to have a lot of famous Alumni for a school with such a controversial history. (I mean, unless it dovetails with your beliefs, it doesn’t seem to offer much in regards to well respected programs & degrees). Someone mentioned Richard Roberts yesterday, he & his wife have a whole lot of messy history with misappropriation of funds.

Hillsong, Dream City...Evangelical, Chrismatic, with NO Big Governing Body-with its pesky rules, standards & procedures. Churches with Mission/Outreach Programs to meet the unique needs of its members & communities
Churches with a lot of cash income and Non-Exempt Tax Status
Churches with well off members, tithing 10% of gross income, donations for other needs
Churches with Social Media savvy younger members, well versed in attracting younger members with influence & disposable income
I’ve been around these type of Churches & their members, my whole life. Good hearted, honest people with good intentions. Unfortunately, evil people see an opportunity to exploit & abuse their trust

one_eyed_bob said...

Hillsong has a lot of problems but not what enty is describing. They have a child abuse scandal from 40 years ago and they seem to use the non-profits to enrich the founding family. I'm sure there are other problems but there is no systematic sexual exploitation of young women encouraged by leadership. If you look at their board it is not all men and the co-leading pastor is a woman. That fact alone means this cannot be Hillsong.

John the Savage said...

If this is NXIVM, who are the 4 celebs?

An A+ list actor
An A-/B+ list singer/actress who dabbled in the worlds oldest profession
A celebrity offspring yachter
An A- list singer /actress with a conscience

Don Kieballs said...

Names someone at some point attached to NXIVM. I don't know if any of them were actually part of it:
Grace Parks, Kristanna Lokken, Luis Miguel. Jennifer Anniston, Gerard Butler, Rosario Dawson, Carolina Kurkova

Jesslives said...

Oh god. When I was a Jesus freak, after high school, I went to Hillsong College in Australia for a year. This is all so Fucking vile.

Carolyn said...

This Sun article below pretty much mirrors the blind FWIW. It sure sounds like the blind is about NXIVM. It also makes sense that info is leaking now that there's an investigation afoot. The leader, Keith Raniere, has also now fled the country.

Unknown said...

I don't believe this is Hillsong. They preach a prosperity gospel (If you only have enough faith, God will make you rich...). They are based out of Australia as well. Their positive message type of teaching is why so many celebs flock to them. They are very different from Orthodox Christianity, but I strongly doubt they are the cult described in this blind. They make all sorts of income from tithes and music licensing. No need to blackmail people.

jessorella said...

Are any of the women who got “knocked out” of one of the levels (especially the later ones) going to talk? If hundreds are being funnelled through then there’s got to be a chance that some of them will start to talk...? Side note: so bummed that Chris Pratt is turning out to be a dick. I thought he was one of the nice guys.

Halloweenie said...

It's hillsong. But they were founded by a prolific child molester in Australia who was protected by the higher up men in the church so it's to be expected, really . But many of the Trump humpers that have invaded this site as of late are also conservative Christians who are blatantly amusing hypocrites.So they refuse to believe it. I'm patiently waiting for one of them to magically bring this back to Clinton so I have have yet another good laugh Lol. ��

Tricia13 said...

So is Trudeau, if by means of lameness,ineffectuality, and overall -pretense =Satan.
He gets my vote!

Whodat said...

Yeah, I don’t really know how true this is. I know a couple of people (several being females) that attend Hillsong Church and have been for a while. I’ve never heard anything even remotely close to it, nor have I ever gotten the idea from them that there’s anything remotely nefarious going on. One girl specifically works at the Hillsong Church and there’s no shot in helllll that this is going on

KristyKreme17 said...

Based on the clues, I believe is this NXIVM cult. Did some research on them, and they’re apparently now involved with schools for children now too. God help those poor kids & these trapped women.

auntliddy said...

I wish her sucess. These cults are vile and divisive.

auntliddy said...

Are they? Or have they been so mentally turned around and brain washed? Really, i dont know, but no rational person wld agree to be subjugated like that.

Unknown said...

I agree that NXIVM seems to fit the clues better than Hillsong. But Hillsong's founder and Brian Houston's father was a horrific pedophile connected to lots of Australian government people. They're shady af. Brian Houston and Hillsong were found to have known all about it and covered it up. http://pulpitandpen.org/2016/08/11/hillsong-and-pedophilia-cover-ups-galore-down-under/

If this is true FFS go to the FBI. Or just anonymously post the shit online and put it on blast.

Xpensive Hobutt said...

Hollyville, Lifespring, whatever. All moron territory. Morons get fucked over repeatedly, and these loser destinations are among those who fuck over morons.

mary lamb said...

No rational person would allow themselves to be tattooed with a founder's initials, be starved and paddled (and that's just what we know of), but they do.

Boredtech InDenver said...

I had remembered hearing that the Church service that Bieber and Selena were attending were at "The Montage Hotel" in Beverly Hills. Looking that up, it appears that there is a second celebrity church going on in LA. Hillsong is located in downtown LA, while City Church holds it services in a luxury hotel.

Someday soon, it will be exposed. These guys sound like a bunch of dummies and today's technology will document their activites.

NotShocking said...

Wish I had a dollar for every story I found about NXIVM. Hillsong is not a cult. They are about women’s independence and empowerment through leadership, not their sexual enslavement. Go to a Hillsong website. Can’t find a single celebrity on it.

T. W. said...

This is Hillsong for sure. They offer classes and have "college" courses. I do not know if they are accredited.

NVXM or whatever it is is too secretive to offer these kinds of classes. Also, I doubt men are joining.

T. W. said...

You get the gold star! Hillsong advertises a sisterhood group and college courses. NVXM is too secretive to do something like this. I also doubt men are joining NVXM.

T. W. said...

Hillsong is no longer affiliated with Assemblies of God. According to their website they are considered an Independent Christian Church in Australia. Their statement of faith/beliefs do not match those of The Assemblies of God either.

The Assemblies of God has been warning people about cults and does clean its own house. Remember Jim Bakker anyone? Having said that I do not know if Hillsong left The Assemblies or were kicked out.

T. W. said...

They get their ears tickled. The ministry tells them what they want to hear. They can say, do, and be anything they want and still be a good person who gets into Heaven.

T. W. said...

Long-time readers of the blog know Enty will sometimes give false clues.

1. Makes guessing more difficult.

2. Protection in the event of a lawsuit.

Cee Kay said...

@NotShocking - Hillsong is clearly a cult. So you're either a part of it or you just don't care to educate yourself.

And as much as I hate to say it, in some ways this particular cult (whatever it is) is still better than $cio. At least they encourage you to leave if it becomes clear you're not going to play their games, whereas $cio just takes and takes and takes until you're dead.

OKC Teacher said...

I still think the BI is about Hillsong, but I did read that NVXM had a “Sorority” type of women’s group. You had to be invited, I think(?) I completely forgot about that detail

Rachel Patterson said...

I was going to mention 2 names. However, the Establishment are on a PR mission and home security is high in this island.

MichiganMama59 said...

All of a sudden Beiber and Gomez get back together and Beiber loses the thug life look and "is going to church". That's what I read a couple weeks ago somewhere else, but had no idea it was tied up in this kind of shit.

MichiganMama59 said...

If the Dorfmans are connected to McCain, maybe those other blinds about a politician calling these poor young victims by is daughter's name . . . .

False. Not Chris Pratt was he seen leaving with two women noted in one of the previous blinds? Nope. Didn't think so https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YjZaJsIZqCo
