While her mother has been getting press for her efforts to extract India, it was love that finally did it, sources say.
Her mother, “Dynasty” actress Catherine Oxenberg, wrote “Captive: A Mother’s Crusade To Save Her Daughter From a Terrifying Cult.”
In interviews promoting the book, Catherine has taken credit for rescuing her “brainwashed” daughter from the clutches of Keith Raniere, who is being held in Brooklyn on federal charges of identity theft, forced labor, sex trafficking and wire fraud.
But a source at Plantmade, the East Village vegan restaurant where India worked, said, “What happens when you meet the love of your life? Boom!”
India has reportedly fallen for Patrick D’Ignazio, the handsome young chef at Double Zero, Matthew Kenney’s restaurant on Second Avenue.
Frank Parlato, the former Nxivm publicist who worked for years to expose the cult, reported: “Patrick said he would not tolerate his girlfriend taking orders from Raniere and being in a sex cult.”
According to sources, the lovebirds recently took a vacation in Italy and are on their way to go live at Catherine’s home in Malibu.
“I’m happy for her that she’s away,” one co-worker told me.
