Leah Remini is a well-known American American actress and activist who starred as Carrie Heffernan on the long-running CBS sitcom The King of Queens and as Vanessa Celluci in the CBS sitcom Kevin Can Wait, both alongside Kevin James.
Leah Remini is the daughter of Vicki Marshall and George Remini. Her father owned an asbestos removal company.
Scientology had convinced George Remini, 69, to denounce his own daughter, Leah Remini.
At 13 years old, Remini and sister Nicole were then taken to join Scientology’s Paramilitary organization called the Sea Organization, where they were forced to sign billion-year contracts and work for their room and board.
Sea Org children do not live with their parents, and children of the Sea Org are treated as adults and work around the clock.
Remini’s mother decided to take her children out of the Sea Org and return to civilian Scientology life when Remini was thirteen years old.
Remini moved to Los Angeles, California, with her mother and sisters, where she spent the remainder of her teenage years working to pay off their debt to Scientology called a Freeloader’s Debt. Remini and her family worked regular jobs to pay for Scientology services.
