Leah Remini reportedly quitting Scientology



It's a rarity for a celebrity to openly leave Scientology, but "King of Queens" star Leah Remini might be about to do so.

Remini is making a "dramatic break" from the religion after undergoing years of "thought modification" and interrogations after she questioned the controversial leadership of David Miscavige, according to the New York Post.

A source says she "is stepping back from a regime she thinks is corrupt. She thinks no religion should tear apart a family or abuse someone under the umbrella of 'religion.'"

The Post story doesn't actually quote Remini herself but chalks that up to the fact that she is still "weighing going public." Looks like they already did that for her.
