Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini have been close friends for a long time ago and Lopez even played a huge role in Remini’s decision to leave the Church of Scientology in 2013. Now, in 2017, the two are still palls and Jennifer has not left her friend’s side in her fight against the cult.
On January 6, Remini was seen out shopping in Beverly Hills and her friend J.Lo was with her.
The BFFs were wearing casual and comfy clothing and they both pulled their hair up in top buns so it stayed out of their faces during their day out.
Before Leah Remini renounced Scientology there were rumors going around that she was trying to convert Lopez as well. “Two girls can’t hang out together?” Remini stated at the time. “What does that have to do with religion?”
As we already know today, the gossip turned out to be completely untrue, and in fact, J.Lo was what Leah needed most to finally leave the destructive environment that was Scientology.
Their friendship baffled fans for years until Remini renounced the religion and Lopez supported her a hundred percent.
A year after Leah left the Church, Jennifer Lopez revealed, while on Ellen, what had been going on.
“It was a tough moment for her. You know what I mean? It’s all she knew her whole life,” Lopez told Ellen. “We are best friends.”
The former cult member said that she never felt “so grateful” to Lopez for helping her through the tough times after she left Scientology. “She doesn’t judge,” Leah said. “She told me to keep the good things and move on with love.”
As you probably already know, Leah Remini has been at the center of everything Scientology this year, after she decided to open up about her time in the cult by publishing a book about it as well as creating a documentary series, exposing all the dark secrets of the Church.
Her friendship with Jennifer Lopez has lasted through all that despite the fact that J.Lo’s father is still part of Scientology.
