The Church of Scientology was developed by L. Ron Hubbard in the 1950s. It is a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self. Many celebrities have joined Scientology, but the organization’s strict guidelines have since caused them to abandon to the church. Here are the ten celebs who left scientology, most admitting their departure from the organization was due to it’s pressuring cult-like nature.

1. Leah Remini

Best known for playing the attractive wife opposite Kevin James in The King of Queens, Leah Remini was been a member of the Church of Scientology since she was 10-years old. Remini strongly defended her belief in scientology during a 2004 interview with CNN. Then, in 2006 Leah questioned the Church, asking for the whereabouts of Shelly Miscavige, the wife of David Miscavige, who is the current head of Scientology. There was backlash from Scientology leaders and Remini immediately left stating that she should be able to question Church doctrine. Leah also admitted that the Church forces “Church first,” but Remini believes in family first, so she felt as though Scientology was taking over her life.
