  • Scientology “minders” followed John Travolta every single day for TWO YEARS when his faith in the pseudo-religion “wobbled” after his teenage son’s death in 2009. Jett Travolta, who had autism, died suddenly on a vacation in the Bahamas after suffering a seizure. Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, didn’t publicly acknowledge Jett’s autism until after his death. “I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t had the support of Scientology. I don’t think I could have got through it,” he told the UK’s Telegraph. “They were with me every day after Jett died. They even travelled with me when I needed to get away. And for a solid two years it was like that. It was only in the second year that I started to take a break of a day or two just to see how I was doing on my own.” Er, um, okay.

  • Awhile ago, Tom Cruise sued the publishers of In Touch magazine over their claims that he “abandoned” his daughter, Suri, after his divorce from Katie Holmes. In a deposition taken this September that has just been made public, Cruise was asked numerous questions about Scientology and Katie’s fears about the “religion.” After repeatedly stating that he found the questions “offensive,” he insisted, “There is no need to protect my daughter from my religion.” When asked directly about whether Katie left him because she wanted to protect Suri from Scientology, Cruise said, “Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes.” Suri is also currently not practicing Scientology, he confirmed, but he refused to answer whether Katie is a “suppressive person.” Interesting. [Radar Online]

Jaden Smith Encourages You And Yours To Drop Out Of School

Jaden Smith clapping

“School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth,” claimed Jaden Smith, 15-year-old child actor and Scientolo-spawn, during an unsubstantiated Twitter semi-tirade over the weekend. The irony! Unfortunately, Jaden failed to clarify whether or not the late New Village Leadership Academy, founded by Will and Jada Pinkett Smith on the basis of a curriculum developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, fell under this umbrella of baseless general opinion. The school shuttered earlier this year, reportedly due to fallout once parents discovered that they were paying $23,000 a year for their spoiled Hollywood kids to be, well, brainwashed. Perhaps Leah Remini could clear this one up for us? A more comprehensive take on Jaden’s wi$dom… Keep reading »

Is Laura Prepon Leaving "OITNB" Because Scientology Hates The Gays?

By now you’ve probably heard the news that Laura Prepon is leaving “Orange is the New Black” midway through season two of the Netflix hit. It’s an odd move for the actress, who hasn’t exactly had a lot of work since her career-making gig on “That ’70s Show” ended. Why would she want to leave such a successful and talked about new show, especially when her role as Piper’s drug-dealing ex has become increasingly more significant? Well, some speculate that her decision may have something to do with her being a Scientologist. Prepon has been a member of the Church of Scientology since she began dating Chris Masterson (brother of her “That ’70s Show” costar Danny Masterson), who was raised in the Church. Keep reading »

Another Ex-Scientologist Reveals She Auditioned To Be Tom Cruise’s Wife

Tom Cruise dodged all sorts of reports that before marrying Katie Holmes he “auditioned” women to be his wife. That he rented out space in a Scientology center and mislead many women into thinking they were auditioning for a film when in reality, he was trying to skip over the whole “dating thing” right into “Imma wife you” mode.

It’s been rumored that Erika Christensen, Scarlett Johansson, and Jessica Alba auditioned for the role of Mrs. Cruise. Recently, actress Nazanin Boniadi told Vanity Fair that she auditioned for Cruise in 2004. They “dated” for about 2 months before Tom moved on. Ms. Boniadi (aka Nora from “How I Met Your Mother”) was basically punished by the “Church” of Scientology for being dumped by Cruise and left the organization. Read more at Evil Beet Gossip…

Kirstie Alley Is Reportedly Really Mad At Leah Remini For Ditching Scientology

As we told you last week, the Church of Scientology has another famous defector! Leah Remini, best known for her role on “King of Queens,” has officially left the cult that she has been a member of for over 25 years, after reportedly becoming unhappy with church leadership and their policy of disconnection (in which members are encouraged/forced to cut off contact with people who have fallen out of favor), and enduring years of interrogations because she dared complain.

Losing another famous member — after recent defections by Katie Holmes and director Paul Haggis, not to mention countless former high-level executives who allege abuse in the Sea Org, the Church’s religious order — is the latest in a string of bad PR for the Church, and they are reportedly going into crisis mode. According to Tony Ortega, who runs the amazing Scientology intel blog The Underground Bunker, following Remini’s defection, a meeting was called at the home of her (now former) friend Melinda Brownstone to discuss just what to do about the situation. Among the attendees? Famous Scientologist Kirstie Alley, who tweeted about where she was, possibly to catch Remini’s attention. That same day, Alley also tweeted not-so-cryptic messages like, “When faced w malicious gossip I take a moment to experience the loss of the person I thought was my friend… Then I say fuck em…” and “the sweetest poison is often served with a smile…beware syrup.” Ugh, when will people like Kirstie Alley (and Tom Cruise and John Travolta, the list goes on) realize that where there’s smoke, there’s fire?
