King of Queens star Leah Remini vs. the Church of Scientology

by

Just a few years ago, Leah Remini, the King of Queens sitcom star, was one of the Church of Scientology’ most high-profile evangelists.

Now she’s all but accusing the movement of foul play, filing a missing-persons report for ShellyMiscavige, the wife of Church leader David Miscavige. Pointing out that Shelly hasn’t appeared in public in six years, Remini, 43, asked the Los Angeles Police Department to look into her disappearance.

The LAPD announced the report was unfounded and that they’d contacted Mrs. Miscavige, but the Church seemed rattled enough to release a statement calling the report “nothing more than a publicity stunt for Ms. Remini.” Well, it worked.
