Leah Remini just may be building a legal case against Scientology interfering with her Emmy Award-winning series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, which has no upcoming season on the docket at A&E. Remini believes the church was crusading to get the series canceled.
"She’s met with lawyers, as she’s considering taking legal action,” an anonymous source told Us Weekly. “She alleges she’s been spied on and followed by people working on behalf of the church.”
Remini claims the church “established a satellite location less than a mile away from the production offices in Van Nuys [L.A.] in 2017.” A spokesperson told the publication that their space opened first and that Remini's claims are "ludicrous."
"In Remini’s mind this is some kind of conspiracy against her,” the spokesperson said. “Remini’s publicity stunt is as stupid now as it was then, just like all of her other conspiracy theories.”
Remini left Scientology in 2013 and has been outspoken about the controversial religion ever since. She had said that her departure has led to celebrity practitioners literally running away from her at events.
"It's really sad to watch it, you know, because it's like I really don't mean them any harm, but I know how they feel," she said on her most recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen (clip above). "I remember how I felt when I saw people who I was taught and brainwashed into believing were the devil, and so it's sad to see them react to me that way where I'm like, 'I'm me. I don't mean you any harm. I want you to do well in life, I promise you.'"
In May, she shared that she's accepted her former brother-in-law back into her family after he, too, took his exit from Scientology.
"I know this day is hard for you: you lost your mother (Rest In Peace), and then when you left the church of Scientology, the rest of your family decided to disconnect from you," Leah wrote in a sweet Instagram photo post shared on his birthday. "But you are a part of our family now, and we feel blessed to have you. We love you!"
