Where is Shelly Miscavige?

It’s the relevant question that’s haunted Leah Remini for over 10 years. Plus in the episode that is latest of her A&E show Leah Remini: Scientology and also the Aftermath, the ex-Scientologist switched whistle-blower, a previous buddy and pen pal of Shelly’s, interviewed many of her closest confidantes whom supplied 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 star that is biggest, Tom Cruise. And, into the second ability, Wright advertised that she supervised the auditing associated with Mission: Impossible actor’s then-girlfriend Penelope Cruz, along with the look for Cruise’s brand new partner after their split through the Spanish actress.

The issues for Remini began at 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 fellow Scientologists John Travolta and Kelly Preston. The few ended up being serenaded by Andrea Bocelli, and took part in Scientology’s Double Ring ceremony, with Miscavige serving as Cruise’s most readily useful man. Remini had been here too, as soon as she started guests that are asking Scientology officials at the bash why Shelly ended up being nowhere can be found, claims she ended up being afterwards “punished for asking where the leader’s wife was.”

When you look at the period 3 premiere episode of Scientology in addition to Aftermath, Remini interviewed Valerie Haney, whom served 22 years within the church’s fraternal order that is religious water Org, whoever people must signal billion-year agreements, and has also been the non-public associate to Shelly Miscavige. Haney says she endure saw Shelly crying and entering an automobile outside “Gold Base,” the headquarters that is international of Church of Scientology in Riverside County, Ca.

“What Miscavige has been doing along with his spouse, hiding her and devoid of her anywhere around, we don’t obtain it. This is certainly heartless if you ask me,” claims Haney.

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

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

“What matters to me is that We have maybe not seen evidence that this girl is alive, or succeeding, and so I will give a shit exactly what the LAPD said as their bullshit declaration which they released, because We haven’t seen her face. I’m bullshit that is calling it,” Remini said.

Det. Kevin Becker of this LAPD’s Hollywood Division, a close buddy of Remini’s who’s since resigned through the force, provided a written declaration to The day-to-day Beast about the Shelly Miscavige health check which read, in part: “I and lots of other detectives think that the ‘investigation’ had been EXTREMELY defectively managed and LAPD dropped means brief with 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 hasn’t been lacking and it is residing her life to her selecting.” (They declined to offer 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 order that is religious. While her spouse lives a general general public life once the Church’s frontrunner, Mrs. Miscavige lives a life that is private. My partner Rebecca Kaufman has really met with Mrs. Miscavige,” wrote Anthony Michael Glassman of Glassman Media Group.

Remini and her Aftermath co-host Mike Rinder, a former 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, composed of vaults housing Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s gathered works on gold music cds, and nuclear shelters. It is where Scientologists are finding your way through 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 away for two times on her father’s funeral in the summertime of 2007, and no body has seen her since. I’m asian brides she’s that are positive here, and I also have 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 that people perform a show about any of it.”

“They think that the planet doesn’t have actually the ranking to inquire of relating to this; that no body gets the ranking to inquire about about any of it,” 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 actually simply peachy-keen and fine, just just how easy would it not be on her to write a handwritten note to the planet, or to Leah? How simple wouldn’t it be on her to accomplish a video clip? Scientology has tens and thousands 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 isn’t the statements made by me personally or anyone else, the evidence that there’s one thing fishy is within Scientology’s response,” he continues. “This will be the easiest part of the entire world to manage if there clearly wasn’t something strange taking place.”
