According to recent reports, Leah Remini, who is the woman behind the A&E show “Scientology and the Aftermath” and an ex-Scientologist herself, has claimed that if she ever tried reconnecting with her old friend Katie Holmes, then it could even mean that the actress could end up losing custody of Suri Cruise.

“I thought comedy would be my life,” said Remini to told LaPalme magazine (via Us Weekly). “The people who speak on the show are champions.” She then proceeded to speak of her old friendship with Tom Cruise's ex-wife.

“But I keep wondering – why haven’t Katie Holmes or Nicole Kidman spoken out?” the 48-year-old actress questioned. “I assume they were forced to sign prohibitive documents. Trust me, Katie’s not allowed to have a meal with me and we used to be close friends. She could lose custody of Suri. It’s quite sick, really.” 

Kidman was married to Cruise from 1990 to 2001, after which, he tied the knot with Holmes in 2006, but the couple ended up separated by 2012. 12-year-old Suri is Cruise and Holmes' daughter.

Remini also claimed that people she works with on her series “are harassed constantly, especially me. Members of the church go to my mother’s restaurant, confront my little sister and my step kids in San Francisco, trying to intimidate us. These abusive scare tactics are what they call a religion.”

The third season of 'Scientology and the Aftermath', which is currently in the middle of filming, is scheduled to deal with the concept of Jehovah's Witnesses. “They are not allowed to report a rape to the police. I started to look into and found some disturbing, and yes, abusive things,” Remini explained. “That will be the subject of one of our specials. America needs to start looking at this! We’re only doomed if we get apathetic.”

“While we would prefer to ignore yet another of Leah Remini’s over-the-top rants aimed at getting attention, she, unfortunately, continues to incite waves of anti-religious hate crimes,” the Church of Scientology said in a statement to the magazine. "Ms. Remini’s incessant hate speech has required increased security and law enforcement resources spent to protect lives she puts at risk,” it continued.

“Ms. Remini’s ridiculous rants are unending and the myths and tales she and her coproducer spread are grown more bizarre by the day … They hire producers to rehash tired, preposterous myths invented and spread by the same handful of former Scientologists motivated by greed and anger.”
