Ever since leaving the Church of Scientology, former King of Queens star and current Dancing with the Stars contestant Leah Remini has been letting out information about her exit little by little.
Her latest reveal is claiming that the church wants to see her “fail.”
During Monday’s new episode of the hit ABC show, the actress told her professional dancing partner Tony Dovolani during rehearsals that she’s going through a hard time in her life.
"I'm going through a personal big change for me and my family,” she said, USA Today reports. She said she has extra motivation because "the church is looking for me to fail so they can say to their parishioners, see what happens when you leave the church."
In a statement to ABC News, the church commented on Remini’s statements, saying “We know this may come as a surprise to someone as self-absorbed as Ms. Remini, but we could care less if she wins or loses on Dancing With the Stars."
