After leaving the Church of Scientology two years ago, Leah Remini is now spilling some of its biggest secrets.
The actress makes several explosive claims about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in her book, “Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology.”
These are the craziest ones.
1. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes left their 7-month-old daughter on the bathroom floor during their wedding
Remini said she heard a baby crying during a celebrity-packed dinner before Cruise and Holmes’s wedding in 2006, and when she went to check on the noise she found “a bathroom where three women stood staring at the infant [Suri] left lying on the floor.”
2. Katie Holmes left Tom Cruise waiting at the alter for 20 minutes
It was so long that Jennifer Lopez asked Remini, “Do you think Katie is coming?”
3. Church leaders tried to recruit Jennifer Lopez during the wedding
Remini was told to invite Lopez and her then-husband Marc Anthony, but that they were separated during the wedding festivities.
“They were trying to extract me,” Remini said. “I can only assume because they wanted to make Jennifer a Scientologist. Maybe I was barring that road for them.”
4. Holmes filed an “official complaint” against Remini for her rude wedding behavior
Remini said she had to pay a six-figure fine for “ruining” Holmes’s wedding because she asked the church leader David Miscavige where his missing wife Shelly was.
She was forced to personally apologize to several guests.
5. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s adopted kids had drama with their mother
Remini claims that during a car ride to the airport she asked Connor and Bella if they had seen Kidman lately, and Bella responded, “Not if I have a choice. Our mom is a fucking SP.”
In Scientology, SP means Suppressive Person, or someone who is cut off from their friends and family who are in the church.
6. Tom Cruise criticized his assistant for giving him tea in a chipped cup
“You served me tea in a chipped mug? Do you know who gets served with a mug that’s chipped? Fucking DBs,” Remini claims Cruise said.
In the church, “DB” stands for Degraded Being and is a derogatory term.
The Church has denied all of Remini’s claims in her book.
“The Church declines to comment on Ms. Remini’s childish gossip,” it said in a statement to People.
“We keep communications between parishioners and the Church private. We will state that Ms. Remini continues to exaggerate and embellish events while spinning numerous tales that are provably false.”
