Nxivm members Kathy Russell and Nancy Salzman ‘wish to interact socially’

Think of it as a guilty pleasure.

Nxivm’s former bookkeeper is asking a judge to be able to spend time with the alleged sex cult’s president and co-founder — saying there’s no problem since they’ve both pleaded guilty in the case.

The Wednesday request from ex-accountant Kathy Russell says she’d like to see longtime pal Nancy Salzman before she moves south to Georgia later this year to find work.

“The two have been close for many years, and now that both have pled guilty, wish to interact socially,” write Russell’s lawyers, who say they don’t want to chaperone the grown woman while they hang out.

Both women were charged alongside Nxivm’s guru-esque leader, Keith Raniere — but pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges of visa fraud and racketeering conspiracy.

Raniere is now standing trial alone on a litany of charges, including racketeering conspiracy involving acts of possession of child pornography and sexual exploitation of a child.

A judge has yet to rule on Russell’s request.
