Actress Leah Remini gives clues about Scientology split
NEW YORK (REUTERS) - United States (US) actress Leah Remini has offered clues about why she left the Church of Scientology, telling People magazine no one is going to tell her how to think or who she can talk to.
Up until now the actress known for her role in the CBS comedy King Of Queens gave little explanation for her split after three decades with the church that lists actors John Travolta and Tom Cruise among its members.
In a statement this month after the New York Post newspaper broke the story, Remini, 43, thanked fans and colleagues for their support but did not mention the Church of Scientology.
She told People magazine at an event in California on Saturday how important family is and being able to speak openly.
