Scientology critic Leah Remini claims actress Jada Pinkett Smith as member of the controversial church

Published

In an interview with the Daily Beast, actress and former Scientologist Leah Remini alleged actress Jada Pinkett Smith is a member of the controversial church.

While there have long been rumors that the wife of actor Will Smith — and star of the Matrix movies and television show Gotham — was a church member, Scientology critic Remini was the first to suggest it based upon allegedly seeing her fellow actress at the highly secure Los Angeles Celebrity Centre owned by the Church of Scientology.

Recalling an evening she spent at the home of actor Tom Cruise — the most prominent disciple of the church — Remini noted that the acting couple were also in attendance.

Asked about their connection to the church by Beast writer Marlow Stern, Remini responded that Pinkett Smith is still a member.

“I know Jada’s in. I know Jada’s in. She’s been in Scientology a long time,” Remini explained. “I never saw Will [Smith] 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.”

Stern points out that the Smith’s have been generous contributors to various Scientology charities and a school, without coming out as members, and ends by stating that he requested a comment from Pinkett Smith and had received no response.

CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter posted on Twitter a clip of the network announcing the hiring.

The network quickly received criticism for the decision, especially in light of reports that everyone who works for Trump is required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which permanently bars them from ever disparaging Trump.

Republicans are losing — even if Trump will be acquitted: Columnist Max Boot

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot walked through the ways that Republicans are completely failing in their attempt to defend President Donald Trump.

The president's trial began Tuesday with a series of votes where Republicans blocked a vote on whether to include witnesses, evidence and any information from the House investigations. It appeared that the president's team was unprepared to argue against the witnesses and evidence, instead, demanding the trial begin immediately and arguments over witnesses be dismissed.
