Where is Shelly Miscavige?

It’s the question that’s haunted Leah Remini for more than ten years. Plus in the latest episode of her A&E show Leah Remini: Scientology while the Aftermath, the ex-Scientologist switched whistle-blower, a former buddy and pen pal of Shelly’s, interviewed many of her closest confidantes whom offered valuable context for why the spouse of Scientology frontrunner David Miscavige hasn’t been seen publicly since August 2007, at her father’s funeral.

In accordance with writer Lawrence Wright’s book Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, therefore the Prison of Belief, Shelly both functioned as Miscavige’s right-hand girl along with a handler to Scientology’s biggest celebrity, Tom Cruise. And, within the second ability, Wright advertised that she supervised the auditing associated with the Mission: Impossible actor’s then-girlfriend Penelope Cruz, plus the look for Cruise’s brand new partner following their split through the Spanish actress.

The difficulties for Remini started during the 2006 wedding of Cruise and also this partner that is new Katie Holmes—a $3 million, star-studded event at a fifteenth century castle in Italy. On the list of visitors had been Brooke Shields, Giorgio Armani, Jim Carrey, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, David and Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, and other Scientologists John Travolta and Kelly Preston. The few ended up being serenaded by Andrea Bocelli, and participated in Scientology’s Double Ring ceremony, with Miscavige serving as Cruise’s man that is best. Remini had been here too, so when she started asking guests and Scientology officials at the bash why Shelly had been nowhere can be found, claims she ended up being subsequently “punished for asking where the leader’s wife was.”

Within the period 3 premiere episode of Scientology plus the Aftermath, Remini interviewed Valerie Haney, whom served 22 years into the church’s fraternal order that is religious water Org, whoever people must signal billion-year agreements, and has also been the private associate to Shelly Miscavige. Haney claims she last saw Shelly crying and entering an automobile outside “Gold Base,” the worldwide headquarters associated with Church of Scientology in Riverside County, Ca.

“What Miscavige is performing along with his spouse, hiding her and without having her anywhere around, we don’t have it. This is certainly heartless to me,” claims Haney.

Tom DeVocht, an old Church of Scientology official whom knew Shelly, adds that she confided in him that her spouse ended up being “losing it” prior to her general public disappearance.

Remini filed a missing-persons report on Shelly’s behalf in 2013, and after performing a security check, Det. Gus Villanueva claimed, “The LAPD has categorized the report as unfounded, showing that Shelly just isn’t missing,” though they declined to offer any details regarding the state they found her in, where she actually is, or if perhaps she was at the current presence of church officials.

“What matters if you ask me is that i’ve maybe not seen evidence that this girl is alive, or succeeding, and so I can provide a shit what the LAPD said because their bullshit declaration which they released, because we have actuallyn’t seen her face. I’m bullshit that is calling it,” Remini said.

Det. Kevin Becker of this LAPD’s Hollywood Division, buddy of Remini’s who’s since resigned through the force, supplied a written declaration to your frequent Beast concerning the Shelly Miscavige health check which read, in part: “I and lots of other detectives genuinely believe that the ‘investigation’ ended up being EXTREMELY defectively managed and LAPD dropped means brief about this one.”

The law firm representing the Church of Scientology, called Remini and Rinder’s claims “false,” said they haven’t provided any evidence of Shelly’s whereabouts because they don’t want to “dignify the preposterous allegations,” and alleged, “Mrs in a threatening letter to The Daily Beast, Glassman Media Group. Miscavige has not been lacking and it is residing her life to her selecting.” (They declined to give any informative data on her state that is current or whereabouts.)

“Mrs. Miscavige happens to be hitched to Mr. Miscavige for pretty much 40 years. This woman is a life-long Scientologist and it is a committed person in the ocean Organization, the Scientology spiritual purchase. While her spouse lives a general public life while the Church’s frontrunner, Mrs. Miscavige lives a personal life. My partner Rebecca Kaufman has actually met with Mrs. Miscavige,” wrote Anthony Michael Glassman of Glassman Media Group.

Remini along with her Aftermath co-host Mike Rinder, a previous executive that is senior the Church of Scientology, genuinely believe that Shelly has been held during the Church of religious Technology (CST), a heavily-fortified complex near Lake Arrowhead, California, made up of vaults housing Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s obtained works on gold music cds, and nuclear shelters. It is where Scientologists are get yourself ready for Armageddon.

“Mike and I also are pretty good that in 2005, as soon as Dave Miscavige had his blow-up up there to be a non-person,” Tony Ortega, publisher of The Underground Bunker and the leading journalist covering Scientology, told me a few years back with her, he sent her. “They allow her to away for 2 times on her father’s funeral into the summer time of 2007, and no one has seen her since. I’m good she’s still here, and I also have actually my sources stating that she’s still there.”

Rinder further claims that he had been contacted by an individual at CST whoever work would be to monitor Shelly’s whereabouts, and keeps they explored Shelly’s disappearance on Aftermath “because so many individuals reached out and demanded we execute a real asian wife show about this.”

“They think that the planet doesn’t have actually the ranking to inquire of about any of it; that no body has got the ranking to inquire about relating to this,” Rinder tells me personally. “It’s a look that is interesting the mind-set of Scientologists, and exactly how away from touch with truth they have been. If Shelly Miscavige is truly simply peachy-keen and fine, just how easy would it be on her to write a handwritten note to the planet, or to Leah? How simple would it not be on her behalf to accomplish a video clip? Scientology has a huge number of videos they released. Why there is certainlyn’t one of Shelly, if she’s therefore fine?”

“The evidence that there surely is something very wrong is perhaps not the statements made he continues by me or anybody else, the proof that there’s something fishy is in Scientology’s response. “This is the simplest part of the whole world to manage if there was clearlyn’t something strange taking place.”
