Scientology leader David Miscavige’s dad is writing a tell-all book with a great title. According to Slate, Ronald Miscavige, Sr. is likely planning on exposing a lot of information about the Church Of Scientology and about his son, who has led the church since the 1980s. Though Ronald Miscavige was once a member of the church, he recently left. He and his son don’t have much of a relationship anymore — and now there’s going to be a book.
The book is titled If He Dies, He Dies, which is a quote that David allegedly said about his father. It happened a while back when David allegedly hired investigators to spy on his dad. When it was reported back to him that his dad may be suffering a heart attack, David reportedly unleashed a fairly heartless response. And those words are now being put to good use.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, David Miscavige was accused of using “Scientology funds” to spy on his dad at the time.
News of Scientology leader David Miscavige’s dad’s tell-all has gotten a response from the church already.
“Mr. Miscavige has always taken care of his father and continues to do so. Beyond that, as a matter of policy, neither the Church nor Mr. Miscavige comments on members of his family. The Church knows nothing beyond media reports about any purported book.”
“As for the purported emergency incident involving an investigator and the second-hand account of an alleged conversation containing a despicably false quote, Mr. Miscavige’s attorney, Michael Lee Hertzberg, is on record stating that Mr. Miscavige does not know the investigator, has never heard of the investigator, has never met the investigator, has never spoken to the investigator, never hired the investigator and never directed any investigations by him.”
“So let me be clear: No such conversation with Mr. Miscavige ever took place and any claim that one did is provable bullsh*t.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the book is going to offer people a “rare look” into the Church of Scientology. The timing is curious, of course, because of the documentary Going Clear, which recently aired on HBO. Many people are fascinated by Scientology, and although a lot of people don’t agree with the church’s teachings, they do find the whole belief system rather interesting.
Scientology leader David Miscavige’s dad’s tell-all has been years in the making.
