In a preview for a 20/20 interview scheduled to air this Friday, Leah Remini alludes to just how powerful Tom Cruise is in the Church of Scientology.
Remini appears to blast Cruise in a revealing interview, saying he is one of the reasons that she severed ties with the Church of Scientology.
Remni made the difficult decision to walk away from the Church in 2013, and explains that part of her decision was connected to megastar Tom Cruise.
“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself…you are evil,” Rimini says.
Rimini’s new memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology details her 30-year association with the Church.
“I feel that people need to understand this has been my whole life,” Remini tells 20/20, “I want them to understand how it happens.”
Remini fears more nightmarish repercussions of severing her ties with the church of Scientology and says she may be about to be in the crosshairs again.
You can watch the full interview on 20/20 Friday! Until then, here is a small tease.
