david miscavige dad scientology expose Ron Miscavige Pens Scientology Exposé On Creepy Son’s Rise To Power
Oh, this is going to be good!
Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me, promises to offer "a riveting insider's look" at the controversial “church” leader and organization.
Ruthless and revealing david miscavige dad scientology expose
According to The Hollywood Reporter the publisher, St. Martin's Press, says the memoir will be:
The only book to examine the origins of Scientology’s current leader, RUTHLESS tells the revealing story of David Miscavige’s childhood and his path to the head seat of the Church of Scientology told through the eyes of his father.
Ron Miscavige’s personal, heartfelt story is a riveting insider’s look at life within the world of Scientology.
Family tradition david miscavige dad scientology expose
This isn’t the first exposé by a Miscavige family member—David’s niece, Jenna, released her own version of events back in 2013.
Titled, Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape, Jenna's book painted a sorry and disturbing picture of her life within Scientology’s elite order, Sea Org, and claimed “church” officials attempted to break-up her marriage.
The Miscaviges joined Scientology back in 1971, after the then-11-year-old David underwent a 45-minute Dianetics session which, he claims, miraculously cured his asthma and severe allergies.
The family moved to the organization’s world headquarters in Great Britain, and David quickly rose through the ranks—conducting auditing sessions by age 12, and entering the esteemed ranks of Sea Org by the tender age of 16.
Miscavige exodus david miscavige dad scientology expose
The other Miscaviges eventually became disillusioned with life inside Scientology however—David’s brother, Ron Jr. left the “church” in 2000, his daughter, Jenna, quit in 2005, and Ron Sr. exited in 2012.
Not surprisingly, given Scientology’s well documented treatment of defectors (who are branded “suppressive persons” or SPs after leaving the organization) Ron Sr. and his son David have had a somewhat contentious relationship since his exit.
How contentious? Well, how about your son allegedly hiring a private investigator to spy on you for 18 months?
Keeping an eye on dad david miscavige dad scientology expose
Ron Sr. claims he was forced to file a suspicious person report with local cops in 2013, after becoming aware that a strange man had been following his every move for over a year.
Police subsequently apprehended the man, Dwayne S. Powell, and he alleged he was being paid $10,000 a week by the “church” to conduct full time surveillance on Ron Sr.
The police report states that Powell was found in possession of several guns, thousands of rounds of ammunition, and a silencer.
Powell went on to claim that while witnessing Ron Sr. undergo what he believed to be a heart attack, he called David Miscavige, and was ordered to not intervene or assist in any way.
Scientology flaks branded Powell’s claims as "blatantly false”, because, duh! Scientology.
Shelly Miscavige mystery david miscavige dad scientology expose
Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me, hits stores May 3—no word yet on whether it will address the mystery surrounding the disappearance of David Miscavige’s wife.
Michelle Diane “Shelly” Miscavige has not been seen in public since August 2007.
Multiple reports claim Shelly disappeared after having "filled several job vacancies without her husband's permission.”
Scientology flaks have denied the reports, because, duh! Scientology—and claim, “she is not missing and devotes her time to the work of the Church of Scientology."
Oh, that totally clears that up then.
