Leah Remini has continued her expose of the Church of Scientology with stories about actress Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, and Tom Cruise.
As for Jada and Will, Remini told The Daily Beast Saturday, “I know Jada’s in [Scientology]. I know Jada’s in. She’s been in Scientology for a long time. I never saw Will 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.”
The Scientology Celebrity Centre was a gathering place for stars who practiced the religion. As for the school the Smith’s opened, it was the New Village Leadership Academy in the Calabasas, Calif. Neighborhood. The Smith’s were a huge part of the funding for the school. The celebrity couple maintained that it was not a religious school even though “Study Technology” was a phrase it used as a major selling point. Suri Cruise, the daughter of Tom and Katie Holmes was a student at the institution until it closed in 2013. The Smith’s are also said to have given $20,000 to HELP, a literacy campaign for the Scientology religion.
While speculation has shut down Will’s involvement in Scientology, Remini has maintained that Jada was and still is a part of the religion.
It has been rumored that Smith and her husband, Will Smith, have been part of the Church of Scientology for quite some time. And ever since Remini made the escape herself, she has been exposing the truths about the religion that reportedly includes lots of A-list celebrities.
Remini has taken to her tell-all Troublemaker, to share her experiences and the latest excerpt includes the Smiths and Tom Cruise.
Apparently Cruise hosted celebrities such as Will, Jada, and Remini at his home during the days Remini was involved in the religion. She said she was thrown for a loop when Cruise asked them to participate in a game of hide-and-seek.
“At first I thought he was joking,” Remini said in the book that was released back in 2015. “But, no, he literally wanted to play hide-and-seek with a bunch of grown-ups in what was probably close to a 7,000-square-foot house on almost three full acres of secluded land.”
Remini said her Jimmy Choo heels played as an excuse to turn down Cruise’s offer. But he wasn’t taking “no” for an answer.
“Well, good. So you’re ‘It,’ then,” he said as he tagged her and ran off in another direction.
