Leah Remini Claims Jada Pinkett Smith is a Scientologist

Leah Remini is speaking out to make a claim that fellow actress Jada Pinkett Smith is a Scientologist.

Leah is one of the most outspoken ex-Scientologists in Hollywood and she wrote a memoir titled “Troublemaker” about her experiences in the church. She also just won and Emmy for her docu-series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Leah opened up about being at a party at Tom Cruise‘s home when she was still a Scientologist. Jada was there with husband Will Smith.

“I know Jada’s in. I know Jada’s in. She’s been in Scientology a long time,” she said. “I never saw Will [Smith] there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. They opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time.”

Leah says that Jada is still part of the church of Scientology.

“I had hoped that she had left [Scientology], but this was the tell-tale sign that she was still in,” Leah said. “She was on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live a few weeks ago promoting her film [Girls Trip], and Andy [Cohen] said to her, ‘Have you read Leah Remini’s book?’ and he was like, ‘What was that whole thing about playing tag?’ and she said, ‘Oh, she lied.’ He goes, ‘Isn’t that weird, to play tag?’ and she goes, ‘No, the kids were there.’ That was untrue. Bullsh-t. There were no kids there. I was like, okay, alright, you’re gonna do that? More power to ya.”

Leah Remini Says Scientology Wanted Her to Recruit Kevin James

Leah Remini is revealing that the Church of Scientology apparently tried to get her to recruit Kevin James, her King of Queens co-star, to the religion.

“They always tried to get me to, [asking] ‘Why is he not in? Why have you not promoted it to him?’ I was like, ‘Because he’s Catholic. He doesn’t want anything to do with it.’ They let it go after a while, but usually you’d be expected to recruit, especially with somebody you work with for nine years,” Leah told People.

Leah has documented her battle with the church after leaving in the A&E series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. The church has continuously denied her claims.

Leah is expected to reunite with Kevin on Kevin Can Wait this season.

“I got a call: ‘Do you want to do some more episodes?’ I said, ‘Yeah, of course, anything.’ They said, ‘Okay, so you’re going to be doing all the episodes.’ I was like, ‘What?! For Kevin, anything,’” Leah said. “He reached out to me and said, ‘I’m so proud of you; if you need anything, I’m here.’

Leah Remini Shares First Photos from 'Kevin Can Wait' Season 2 Set!

Leah Remini is hard at work on the upcoming second season of Kevin Can Wait and she has shared the first photos from set.

“It’s been an amazing first week on Kevin Can Wait, so blessed that I had my family with me,” Leah captioned the photos on Instagram. “Thank you to all who came out tonight, cast, crew, writers, thank you for the love!”

Kevin James is seen with a full beard in the photo. The former King of Queens co-stars are reuniting for the upcoming season of the CBS sitcom.

Leah is replacing former leading lady Erinn Hayes, who was let go after one season on the show.

“and thank you to @Casper for the gift, now my daughter and I can get cozy in our new mattress!” Leah added with another photo.

Leah Remini Says Elisabeth Moss 'Isn't Allowed' to Talk To Her Because of Scientology

Leah Remini has been very outspoken about her former church, the Church of Scientology, and now is speaking out about a fellow Emmy nominee Elisabeth Moss‘ involvement.

Elisabeth Moss believes that she can’t talk to me,” Leah told THR. “There’s a thing in Scientology called ‘acceptable truth.’ It means you only say what’s acceptable to the public. But she believes that I’m an antisocial personality — because I’ve spoken out against Scientology. So she isn’t allowed to talk to me. And me knowing that, I wouldn’t put her in the awkward position.”

Leah was asked if she would congratulate Elisabeth should she win on Emmy night. “I would, of course. I don’t hold anything against Elisabeth Moss other than she’s continuing to support a group that is abusive and destroying families….That’s for her to learn — just as I needed to learn it.”

Both Leah and Elisabeth are nominated for Emmys next month. Leah for Outstanding Informational Series or Special for A&E’s Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, and Elisabeth for her work in The Handmaid’s Tale.
