Actress Leah Remini to publish memoir after leaving Scientology: source
Actress Leah Remini, one of the most prominent celebrities to leave the Church of Scientology, is planning to publish a memoir about her life, a source close to the actress said.
It is not known how much Remini will divulge about the church in which she was raised, but the actress has received “a number of offers” from publishers, the source told Reuters late on Friday.
Remini, 43, who is best known for her role in the CBS comedy “The King of Queens,” has given little explanation on why she chose to split from the church that lists Hollywood stars Tom Cruise and John Travolta among its members.
Last month the New York Post newspaper first reported that Remini had left the church after “being subjected to years of ‘interrogations’ and ‘thought modification’ for questioning leader David Miscavige’s rule.”
The church declined to comment on news of Remini’s memoir.
To date, a handful of Scientology’s celebrity members have left the church, but none has published an insider account of their time there.
