Jada Pinkett Smith made many past comments about the church of Scientologist, and now some of them are coming back to bite her.
The world hit pause when Jada sat down with her husband, Will Smith, to talk about their lives and the many rumors that are circulating on social media.
During the lengthy conversation, the actress attempted to deny the wild accusations that she was in an open marriage by saying the following: “We’ve never been Scientologists, we’ve never been swingers.”
A few months later, Jada found herself sitting with Will again — this time to talk about the lengthy affair or entanglement that she had with singer August Alsina.
Scientology reporter Tony Ortega decided to reveal the truth about Jada’s ties to the controversial church.
According to the Scientology expert, Jada has been misleading with her comments because she was a “hardcore Scientologist,” who has cut ties with the organization.
The Underground Bunker author went on to reveal that Will was not in too deep and added: “I talked to close friends of Will Smith, who said he was a ‘dabbler’ who dabbled in everything and that Jada was the hardcore Scientologist.”
Leah Remini, a former member of the church, had confirmed to The Daily Beast that Jada was indeed a passionate Scientologist who went as far as opening a school to better share her beliefs with others.
Remini, who has spoken about Tom Cruise‘s role in the church, confessed: “I know Jada’s in. I know Jada’s in. She’s been in Scientology a long time. I never saw Will [Smith] there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. They opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time.”
She went on to say: “I had to go down to the Celebrity Centre and do stuff with the E-meter, and Jada was always at the Celebrity Centre. My feeling is that Jada was really into [Scientology], and Will was sort of whatever… but he took all the courses too.”
Jada denied the claims that she ran a Scientology school by saying: “All I can say is it is not a Scientology school. Now, if you don’t trust me, and you are questioning my integrity, that’s a whole different matter. That is straight evil to think that I would bring families into that educational institution and then try to get them to convert into some religion.”
However, now, teachers, who worked at the school, have come forward to say otherwise.
Mariappan Jawaharlal, Ph.D., who worked at the now-closed school, told the media outlet: “Will and Jada gathered 20, 30 kids—including their kids, Jaden and Willow — in their old home. It was a big house where they had several rooms, almost like a Montessori.”
Jacqueline Olivier, who was a guest lecturer at the school, revealed: “They had this course supervisor who had her own Scientology charges, and so I hired a bunch of people who weren’t Scientologists. Everyone else there were Scientologists.”
Olivier went on to say: “There were pictures of L. Ron Hubbard on the walls. And in the study technology book, there was a picture of [Hubbard] and a whole mini-biography of his life, and that was the first thing [kids] had to word clear—before anything. I mean, it was total Scientology. There’s no question.”
Many believe that Jada will never address those claims fully.
