Leah Remini Says Katie Holmes Left Scientology to Protect Suri

Leah Remini is opening up about Katie Holmes and how she now understands why the actress had to leave Scientology.

The 45-year-old actress’ new interview on Good Morning America comes a couple of days after Katie released a statement apologizing for upsetting Leah in the past.

“At the time, I was fighting with her,” Leah said. “Now, I know really what she was going through.”

Katie left the church when she divorced her ex-husband Tom Cruise back in 2012 after six years of marriage. Leah left Scientology in 2013.

“I had no idea she was going through probably a lot more and looking back now and seeing her and Suri out there in the world, and her being able to be with her daughter and live her life, I’m touched by it because I know now she did what she did leaving because she had to protect her daughter,” Leah added.
