Leah Remini isn’t happy with the Church of Scientology! In fact, the House of Queens actress wants the FBI to look into the activity of the contentious organization.
While Leah was discussing her new series, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, the actress, 47, revealed her objective as one where she would expose all of the allegedly horrific details of the enterprise, including things like sexual and physical abuse.
She said to the Hollywood Reporter, “I’m talking about the FBI, the police, the Department of Justice, and the IRS. If the FBI ever wanted to get anywhere, all that’s necessary is a raid. Everybody who’s ever going to Scientology has folders, and everything they’ve ever said is contained in those folders.”
Remini’s criticism of the church has been ruthless; there’s no doubt about that.
However, the organization has come out in the past to respond.
And what did they say exactly?
In a declaration to Us Weekly in December of 2016, the church wrote, “Leah Remini is doing this show for the money, like the way she profited from her book. Also, she attempted to extort the Church by first demanding $500,000, followed by an additional $1 million, because the Church invoked its First Amendment right to respond to her false claims with the truth.”
Their statement goes on, “this shows the extent Leah Remini is willing to go to distort the truth about Scientology. For the perspective of the church and the truth about the bullies she now supports, go to www.leahreminiaftermath.com.”
Although Leah and others have come out to hate on the church, there are many prolific members who actively engage in the organization. It’s often the people who leave the church who are the most critical of Scientology, so perhaps there is another side to the story? We just have to wait and see if more details are offered in the future.
