The controversies surrounding the Church of Scientology have been in the headlines for years. However, since Leah Remini left the organization, she has exposed the members as no one has done before.
The actress has used multiple platforms, such as documentaries, podcasts, and interviews to speak about the scandals and the active members, including Tom Cruise.
Remini did not leave any stones unturned when she is revealing some of the dark experiences that she has had while she was part of the Church of Scientology.
The star, who is at war with the new religious movement, eagerly exposed its famous members for their wild antics.
The bad publicity has damaged the organization, and it has forced the leaders to put in place a drastic rule to protect themselves.
According to Us Weekly, the rule is rather simple — do not speak. Longtime and important believers like Kirstie Alley, John Travolta, and Cruise are told to remain silent despite being scrutinized by the media for backing the controversial church.
A source had this to say about the way celebrity members are asked to behave: “Of course, these famous names are well aware of the scrutiny and scandals around them. But they basically have to sit back in silence.”
Additionally, the A-listers trust and fear their leader, David Miscavige, so that they will stay mum despite the eye-popping allegations.
The insider added: “David’s word is all-powerful. And the risk of speaking out is too great.” The fact that celebrity members cannot react to the stories being leaked might be good news for Remini, who still has a lot to get off her chest.
The church most famous former member recently dropped these bombshells about Cruise: “Although I believe there was a time when Tom was a decent and kindhearted person, he has morphed himself into David Miscavige and is completely dedicated to Scientology’s mission to ‘clear’ planet Earth — which means making 80 percent of the world’s population into Scientologists.”
She added: “I think it’s time for people to start waking up to the real facts here. Tom has, for years, manipulated his image to be the good guy.”
She went on to say: “This is a man who has not even seen his own daughter in years. That this guy can be running around and having people think he’s this super-nice guy, I don’t get it. But that’s the Hollywood-bulls–t game people play.”
This situation has turned Remini into a very popular voice in the media landscape.
