After Leah Remini left the Church of Scientology in July 2013, many questions were asked on the reason behind her departure. 'I don't want to be known as this bitter, ex-Scientologist,' she tried to explain, as per Eonline. 'I'm not trying to bash anybody, and I'm not trying to be controversial. I just want people to know the truth.'

Leah Remini said that there was a 'dozen of influencing factors' that made her leave Scientology in 2013. But the main reason was that her daughter Sofia, according to her, 'approached the age when auditing became required for acclimation into the church.'
