Leah Remini continues to battle against the controversial practices of the Church of Scientology, including its recruitment of celebrities such as best pal Jennifer Lopez, per a story published by the Daily Beast.
Remini found herself at odds with the religious group, from which she separated herself in 2013, at Tom Cruise's 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes in Italy, where the leader of the church, David Miscavige, served as best man.
The actress asked others at the festivities why Miscavige's wife Shelly was noticeably absent from the ceremony (she has not been seen publicly since 2007).
Remini also alleged that church officials attempted at multiple points throughout the affair to separate her from her pal Jennifer Lopez, whom she'd been pressured to invite by the church as a possible recruitment into the religion.
"They were trying to extract me," Remini revealed in an interview with 20/20. "I can only assume because they wanted to make Jennifer a Scientologist. Maybe I was barring that road for them."
Remini, who met Lopez through her former husband Marc Anthony, says that despite the church's best efforts to the contrary, Lopez saw right through their manipulations.
