More information is being revealed about why Leah Remini quit the Church of Scientology. According to Fox News, the "King of Queens" actress has reportedly threatened to call police after no one in the Church would answer her questions surrounding the whereabouts of Church of Scientology, David Miscavige's wife, Shelly. According to reports Shelly hasn't been seen in public since 2007.
After Remini started asking questions about the leader's wife she was hauled in for interrogation. Her suspicion reportedly began in 2006 at the wedding of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. The high profile wedding was attended by many celebrities including Miscavige. His wife, however, was not there.
"Notably absent, however, was Miscavige's wife Shelly. Remini dared to ask about it - and loudly," Tony Ortega, former editor of Village Voice who has written about Scientology since 2005 said. "When she asked about it she was told to shut up, as if the question itself was out of line. That did not sit well with the actress, who is known for speaking her mind. When she returned from Italy she did what Scientologists are told not do when they see something that they consider against the churches rules - she wrote a "Knowledge Report."
According to sources who Ortega spoke to, the report criticized Miscavige, his assistant, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and other people considered as higher-ups in the Church. After all the media attention Remini released a statement last night thanking the media and fans for all their support.
"I wish to share my sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the overwhelming positive response I have received from the media, my colleagues and fans from around the world. I am truly grateful and thankful for all your support."
The actress isn't the only celebrity who has left the Church of Scientology. In 2009 Filmmaker Paul Haggis left saying in an interview with "Rock Center's" Harry Smith that he was "ashamed of my own stupidity, of how I could have been purposely blind for so many years."
Katie Holmes also made a public exit after divorcing husband Tom Cruise. Nicole Kidman also left but said in an interview that she wasn't going to publicly talk about her decision because she has two kids who are Scientologists. Other celebrities who have left include Jerry Seinfeld, Lisa Marie Presley and Jason Beghe.
