NXIVM: Witness describes Keith Raniere's gaslighting to keep her enslaved - 2019-05-30
Dianne Lipson says the testimony from former Nxivm slave Daniela has turned gut-wrenching. Here's her latest report, starting with Wednesday's afternoon session…
Wednesday afternoon's testimony was the most harrowing I've heard yet in this case. But more on that later.
The afternoon started with discussion of Kristin Keeffe's pregnancy. Daniela noticed that Kristin's belly looked swollen. She asked Keith if Kristin was pregnant, and Keith said no. One day Kristin couldn't be found, and she was discovered in a pool of blood. She was brought to the hospital. Daniela took the call from the hospital, informing her that Kristin was pregnant. Kristin ended up having the baby. Only a small circle of people knew that it was Kristen and Keith's baby. A cover story was crafted about the baby's origins. This was to protect Keith's image as a celibate living a monk-like existence. Daniela had interaction with the little boy, Gaelen. She babysat, sometimes overnight if Kristen was out of town. Cami also had interaction with the boy as a nanny in Rainbow Cultural Garden. Very few times did Daniela see Keith interact with Gaelen.
