Leah Remini and Jennifer Lopez have been good friends for many years. In the beginning of their friendship Remini was still a Scientologist and then she left. Remini revealed why Lopez refused to join and how she helped her after she left. Here is everything you need to know.
Leah Remini revealed that her good friend was approached to join Scientology, but refused on her own. Remini made clear that she didn’t have to say anything to the singer making that decision.
“I didn’t save her from anything,” Remini told Daily Beast. “Jennifer is a very strong-minded female and is a seeker of spirituality. She’s Catholic—always has been—and her father is a very indoctrinated Scientologist, and has been for quite a long time. He’s achieved the confidential levels of Scientology. But Jennifer makes her own decisions.”
She continued with “Yes, I did [run interference], but she disagreed with the disconnection policy, so she wasn’t going to submit to any pressures from anybody regardless, and she was a really good friend to me through all that.”
The disconnection policy is people who leave Scientology are reportedly labeled “Suppressive Persons” and those still in the organization can no longer be in contact with them.
