Leah Remini wants to take ‘legal action’ against Church of Scientology


Leah Remini could be taking the Church of Scientology to court, a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Her show, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath — in which the former Scientologist seeks to expose the church — has aired for three seasons, and it even won an Emmy in 2017. And yet, “there’s been no announcement about another season,” the source reveals.

Now Remini is claiming that the organization is on a crusade of its own: to get her AE docuseries canceled. “She’s met with lawyers, as she’s considering taking legal action,” says the source. “She alleges she’s been spied on and followed by people working on behalf of the church.”

The actress, 49, even alleges that the church “established a satellite location less than a mile away from the production offices in Van Nuys [L.A.] in 2017,” adds the source.

NEW YORK – FEBRUARY 30: ‘Sting of Queens: Part One’ and ‘Sting of Queens: Part Two’– Kevin begrudgingly agrees to come out of retirement briefly to reprise an undercover assignment where he and his old rival Vanessa Cellucci (Leah Remini), once again, pose as husband and wife. Also, Donna is up for a promotion, Kendra gets accepted to law school, and Chale gets a lucrative new job, on part one of the two-part first season finale of KEVIN CAN WAIT, Monday, May 1 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) and Monday, May 8 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Scientology spokeswoman Karin Pouw denies the claims to Us, calling them “ludicrous,” adding that the church moved there “months before” Remini’s production company, Intellectual Property Corporation.

“In Remini’s mind this is some kind of conspiracy against her,” Pouw says. “Remini’s publicity stunt is as stupid now as it was then, just like all of her other conspiracy theories.”
