For years, rumors have swirled that Jada Pinkett Smith, 46, and her husband, Will Smith, 48, are members of the Church of Scientology. According to Leah Remini, who left the controversial church in 2013, those reports are true.
“Jada’s… been in Scientology a long time,” Leah, 47, recently said, adding that while she never saw Will at the church’s Celebrity Centre in LA, Jada was there “all the time.” She even pointed out how they funded a “Scientology school” in Calabasas, Calif., which closed in 2013. (The pair have insisted that their New Village Leadership Academy was secular, though the school used Scientology’s “Study Technology” and was staffed by some church members.) Jada did not respond to In Touch’s request for comment.
Recently, it seems like the Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath star has been picking fights with celebs. In Touch previously reported that Leah slammed Scientologist Elisabeth Moss for walking out on her TCA acceptance speech. She said at the time, “I don’t hold anything against Elisabeth Moss — other than she’s continuing to support a group that is abusive and destroying families.”
Leah is certainly not finished talking about celebrities and Scientology. “Leah’s on a mission,” a source says. “Everyone should watch out.”
