Leah Remini's Dramatic Break With Scientology

Leah Remini's bad Scientology experience wasn't just over "thought modification" -- according to the New York Post, she threatened to call police about the apparent disappearance of the wife of church leader David Miscavige.

As we reported yesterday, Leah innocently asked at Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's wedding, "Where'sShelly?" That apparently got her hauled in for interrogation, with questions such as, "‘Why are you asking, who are you connected to, are you going on the Internet?" Shelly Miscavige hasn't been seen in public since 2006, except to attend the funeral of her father in 2007.

When that interrogation got Leah wondering and considering whether the police should be involved, the church engaged in "Security Checking" -- basically turning her life and lives of her family members and close friends upside down in an effort to make sure they wouldn't expose its secrets. And a source says that after five years of this sort of treatment, Leah finally said, "Enough."

Remini issued a statement last night thanking her fans for their support.
