Leah Remini’s Scientology Deposition Postponed Indefinitely
Leah Remini has a few Scientology secrets that she’d like to spill but the actress will have to stay quiet for the moment. The Church’s lawyers have successfully delayed the actress’ deposition.
According to Radar Online, Remini was scheduled to give a deposition about her time with the church on October 15. The deposition has been postponed indefinitely.
Attorney Marc Wiegand said: “It was delayed by agreement to take her deposition at a later date… As of right now, the date is not set in stone.”
Monique Rathbun is suing the church of Scientology, and its leader David Miscavige, for harassment. Remini, who defected from the church, was supposed to spill secrets about how the church, and Miscavige in particular, abused its members.
Wiegand said that the Church doesn’t want Remini’s side of the story to go public.
The attorney said: “They don’t particularly want that deposition taken… But we’re entitled to discovery on matters that are relevant, and this is a relevant matter. They have a lot of lawyers involved in this case, and we have been obliged to find mutually agreeable dates to do things. Setting the dates for depositions has been a matter of discussion.”
Leah Remini may not be able to give her deposition anytime soon but she has made a few comments about the church of Scientology recently. On an episode of Dancing With The Stars, the actress said that the church was rooting for her to tail because the church wants to show its members that they will also fail if they leave Scientology.
Remini said: “The church is looking for me to fail, so they can say to their parishioners, ‘See what happens when you leave the church?'”
Leah Remini danced to Katy Perry’s “Roar” on last week’s episode. The actress said that she picked the song because she wanted to show her fans, as well as her daughter, that no one was going to keep her down.
Remini said: “The song spoke to me and about what I was going through in my life, but I really dedicated it to anybody who has been controlled or kept down. It could be a relationship; it could be anything… I want [my daughter] to see her mom make decisions and know that her family’s strong, that we’re together,” she added. “Sometimes you go through a hard time, but you’re going to make it through.”
