Ron Miscavige has written an exposé on life inside Scientology, and his creepy son, David Miscavige’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.

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.

This isn’t the first exposé by a Miscavige family member—David’s niece, Jenna, released her own version of events back in 2013.

Leah Remini  Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop, Slamming Scientology (And We Love Her For It)

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.

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?

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.

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.

WHAT'S TRENDING

Tom Cruise and David Miscavige’s Super Creepy Scientology Bromance

Cruise's bromance with Scientology leader David Miscavige is every bit as bizarre and creepy as you would imagine.

Like, super super, spying on your best friend, kinda creepy.

Ron Miscavige Pens Scientology Exposé On Creepy Son's Rise To Power

The Daily Mail spoke with a bunch of former Scientologists—including ex-head of security Gary Morehead; Miscavige's former-personal chef, Sinar Parman; ex-Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder; and L.Ron Hubbard's great grandson, Jamie DeWolf.

Between them they offer up a fascinating glimpse into the tight-knit relationship of Cruise and the 55-year-old “church" leader.

Leah Remini Can't Stop, Won't Stop, Slamming Scientology (And We Love Her For It)

The two have been firm friends for the past three decades—Miscavige acted as Cruise's best man when he married Nicole Kidman, and then again, when he wed Katie Holmes—and, it seems they're pretty much inseparable during the extended periods of time Cruise spends hunkered down at Gold Base, Scientology's International headquarters, in Riverside County, California.

So, how do the two men while away the hours, when they're free from the seemingly endless tedium of Scientology dictates? Well, according to Parman, Miscavige (who he refers to as “DM") and Cruise like to engage in some kind of testosterone-fueled, macho man competitive bromance, complete with their own weird language.

Church Of Scientology Accused Of Bullying And Intimidating A Clearwater Cinema

“DM and Tom would socialize all the time," Parman says. “They would just hang around with each other in the evenings, go out to the lounge where there's more comfortable chairs. DM's got this huge cigar humidor in the lounge, which is just a pretense for Cruise. They'd be smoking away.

“I offered DM a cigar when Cruise wasn't there and he said, 'I don't even like those things, you can still smell them three days later.'

“It was a bromance—cigar-smoking, playing tennis, doing exercise together, out macho-ing each other. He even got DM parachuting with him, there's a big place in Perris, CA where they did it. It was who could outdo the other.

Laura Prepon's Scientology Interview Is Suitably Batshit Fucking Crazy

“Tom would come out with all this stuff. He would talk to DM in this crazy way, his mannerisms were just unreal, all this tech speak," Parman continues. “He would speak like the inner culture of Scientology, that's the way you speak if you're a complete Sci fanatic. He would pride himself on speaking in those buzz words."

Then there are the boys trips to Vegas, where the two like to blow off steam by gambling at the tables….often winning BIG.

“They'd go out gambling because I saw the big rolls of cash that were sitting on the table up at the Officers' Lounge in the Star of California," Morehead shares. “I knew that they had just come back [from Vegas] and I asked about what was all that cash, and was told by Tom's steward, 'Yes, that's what Dave and Tom brought back, they just won that.'

“There were two rolls—really huge fat rolls—so fat you couldn't hold them in your hands. A significant amount of cash, as they were $100 bills.

John Travolta Defends 'Beautiful' Church Of Scientology

“I understood it to be about thirty or forty thousand dollars each. I was told that one was Dave's and one was Tom's and it was what they won in Vegas. I was shocked they even went. It was shortly after Days of Thunder.

“Dave would go and have fun with Tom, it was really odd. I thought, 'It's gambling, you know, here we are in a church, that's weird.' But if anyone can break the rules, Number One and Two can. It's a real bromance between them. They do everything together—exercise and cigar smoke together."

Juliette Lewis Defends Scientology, Says Tom Cruise Is Victim Of Big Pharma

They are so close in fact—and this is where it gets really creepy—that Miscavige appears to be unable to deal with not knowing what's going on with Cruise at all and every single minute—and, to that aim, Morehead claims the church leader ordered him to rig up a secret camera in Cruise “auditing room" so he could spy on his bromance buddy.

“I know that there were two camera systems for Cruise—one was a camera he did know about‚—a JVC camera on a tripod—which made him believe that was it," Morehead says.

Did Kirstie Alley Cut Off Maksim Chmerkovskiy Because Of Scientology?

“But I had to set up a second camera in Tom's auditing room. That was for Dave's own personal entertainment although it was meant to be for the purpose of being professionally critiqued.

“It was Dave's little secret to look inside people's little sessions. If Tom ever wanted that tape, Dave would still have the other one.

“I started installing these secret surveillance systems—hidden camera systems where Tom and other staff had no idea they were being watched, recorded and reported.

Leah Remini's Book Offers Tantalizing Glimpse Into Tom Cruise's Bizarre Life

“Dave started discovering that you could view these cameras from anywhere as long as you had a modem. So we would set up these systems to survey our own staff and he could watch them from anywhere."

Hubbard's great-grandson, who is now a stand-up comedian, backs-up Morehead's claims, and adds a sinister twist to why Miscavige would be filming his best buddy.

“They watch Cruise like a hawk, there's no doubt, they have all his records, they know his secrets. They know all of it."

Leah Remini refuses to shut the fuck up when it comes to the cult “Church” of Scientology—and, we love her for it.

Despite the organization’s whiny butt sore little bitch reaction to her revelations about life inside the notoriously covert and media hating “church”, Remini can’t stop, and just won’t stop, slamming it.

Ron Miscavige Pens Scientology Exposé On Creepy Son’s Rise To Power

As Popdust previously reported, the 45-year-old is currently bracing herself for the inevitable backlash she’s in line for, as she gears up to release her explosive Scientology expose, detailing the alleged corrupt inner workings of the organization.

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, is set to be released November 3, and the candid tell-all promises to be a blistering take-down of the “church”, its hierarchy and leader, David Miscavige.

Laura Prepon’s Scientology Interview Is Suitably Batshit Fucking Crazy

As part of her book promotional tour, Remini sat down for a talk with 20/20—ABC has released a teaser of the interview, which airs in full this Friday—you can watch it right here on Popdust.

In the clip, the actress talks about joining Scientology as a child—her teacher mother, Vicki Marshall, brought her daughter into the “church” when she was just 9-years old—and, Remini shares that her life was drastically affected by the decision.

Scientology Acting Like Whiny Butt Sore Little Bitch Over Leah Remini

“Because Scientologists view children as spiritual beings, you’re given a lot of responsibility and your ego becomes extremely inflated,” Remini says.

She goes on to talk about how, similar to mold on cheese, before you know it, Scientology manages to creep all over and into you, ultimately ending up consuming your entire life.

“I feel that people need to understand this has been my whole life,” Remini admits, “I want [people] to understand how it happens.”

Did Kirstie Alley Cut Off Maksim Chmerkovskiy Because Of Scientology?

“As time goes on, you start to lose touch with the real world,” she says later in the clip. “The mindset becomes 'Us against them.’

“The decision to leave is you are giving up everything you have ever known and everything you have worked for your whole life.”

Juliette Lewis Defends Scientology, Says Tom Cruise Is Victim Of Big Pharma

Since defecting back in 2013, Remini has become a high profile thorn in Scientology’s side, bravely speaking out against the organization, and sharing secrets of the hideous day-to-day life within the “church.”

She previously opened up to Oprah, for an episode of Winfrey’s Where Are They Now?

I don’t think people know the amount of dedication it takes to be in this organization. I mean it was every day, three-and-a-half hours minimum, seven days a week usually. You know, I’m working most of my time, and then the other time was spent at the church, so minimal time is really spent with your family.

I was at one of these hotels in Florida, and I saw my daughter swimming for the first time while I’m reading this thing [Scientology coursework].

And a tear came down my face. And I was like, ‘What am I doing?’

Save The Date—Noah’s Ark Theme Park Opening In Kentucky July 2016!

Despite Scientology’s vehement claims to the contrary, the organization engages in many practices that are viewed as being the staple of modern day cults—including isolating members from “negative forces” outside of the “church”—or, in Scientology jargon, “suppressive persons” (SPs)

Remini discussed how unhealthy that can be for those unfortunates still inside the organization.

I didn't want to raise my daughter in the church because from what I experienced and what I saw, the church becomes everything, your mother, your father, your everything. You are dependent on the church.

In 10 years, if I didn't want to be connected to the church anymore, my own [daughter Sofia] would be taught to disconnect from me. I didn't want to create that. I didn't think that would be healthy for her.

Sure enough, since leaving, Remini has become a pariah in social circles involving her former Scientology friends—pals like Kirstie Alley, whom she was close to for years, but is now shunned by.

Alley slammed her former friend during an interview with Howard Stern, branding her an anti-faith "bigot" who picks on Scientologists for no reason ... and declaring that Remini is now her "enemy."

Church Of Scientology Accused Of Bullying And Intimidating A Clearwater Cinema

For their part, Scientology has taken the usual tried and tested aggressive and nasty attack stance against their former member, releasing a bitchy little statement to the press:

It comes as no surprise that someone as self-absorbed as Leah Remini with an insatiable craving for attention would exploit her former religion as a publicity stunt in a pathetic attempt to get ratings for her cable show and seem relevant again.

She is rewriting history and omits that she was participating in a program to remain a Scientologist by her own choice, as she was on the verge of being expelled for her and her husband’s ethical lapses.

Wah! Wah! Wah!

It’s impossible to imagine any other supposed religion acting this way—people leave the Catholic Church, and speak out against it, all the time, but we’ve yet to read a statement from the Pope tearing them to pieces for doing so.

Travolta And Gaga—Is There A Creepy Motive To Their Friendship?

But then, Scientology ain’t your regular, run-of-the-mill “religion” as much as they like to pretend they are when it suits them....and, Scientology's creator, L Ron Hubbard definitely ain't no Jesus figure—although, we have to give major props to the failed science fiction writer for his awesome imagination, which is on full display when it comes to the utterly fantastical and ludicrous tenets of Scientology.

For those of you out there who remain blissfully unaware of what Scientology preaches, here's some of the best bits for you:

  • Earth is over-run by evil dead alien souls (“Body Thetans” in Scientology lingo) who live and roam amongst us, posing as humans.

  • Body Thetans are the result of a mass murder spree undertaken ions ago by the blood thirsty evil alien ruler Xenu—who killed millions of aliens (“Thetans” in Scientology lingo)

  • The blood thirsty evil alien ruler Xenu killed the millions of Thetans by kidnapping them, transporting them to earth in shimmering DC-8 “space-planes”, stuffing them in volcanoes around the world and then blowing them to pieces with hydrogen bombs.

  • The poor murdered Thetans’ souls (the aforementioned Body Thetans that live and roam amongst us to this day) were then captured by Xenu and his peeps, brainwashed and released out into the world—where they immediately attached themselves to the human population

  • The human population of old genetically passed on those pesky Body Thetans to their children, and their children passed them on to their children..and so on, up until present day—where, we, unenlightened non-Scientologists, remain riddled with pesky brainwashed Body Thetans, which are the cause of the vast majority of our mental and physical ailments.

  • Luckily, we can rid ourselves ("clear" in Scientology lingo) of the pesky brainwashed dead alien souls clinging to us, by paying vast sums of money to specially trained potential blackmailers Scientology “auditors”

  • The specially trained potential blackmailers Scientology “auditors” will then hook up the poor Body Thetan riddled human (“pre-clear” in Scientology lingo) to a Hubbard Electropsychometer (“E-Meter” in Scientology lingo) which consists of a plastic box type thing with some dials, wires, and a couple of empty soup can kind of things attached, which is purported to “measure changes in the electrical resistance of the pre-clear by passing a small electric current (typically in the range from 50µA to 120µA) through the pre-clear's body” via the empty soup can kind of things.

  • An average auditing session involves the pre-clear divulging all of their deepest darkest and most shameful secrets to the auditor, who tapes it all for future blackmail opportunities reference.

  • After shelling out shit loads of money and divulging every single one of their deepest darkest and most shameful secrets, the aforementioned auditing will eventually rid the pre-clear of all of their attached Body Thetans, rendering the pre-clear all nice, clean and evil dead alien soul free.

  • Scientologists who dare break any of the organization's many rules, are forced to submit themselves to a regime of physical punishment, total isolation, intense ideological indoctrination, an ongoing series of forced self-confessions, and hard labor, in some weird prison camp type scenario (the “Rehabilitation Project Force” (RPF) in Scientology lingo).

  • Scientologists are entitled to physically and emotionally injure any critics or enemies of the organization, in addition to seizing dissenters’ property.

  • Contrary to both evolutionary and creationist belief, all humans actually evolved from clams

Leah Remini’s life is very likely about to get a whole lot creepier.

The 45-year-old is about to release an explosive Scientology expose, detailing the corrupt inner workings of the notoriously covert organization—and, not surprisingly, she’s bracing herself for the inevitable backlash.

Laura Prepon’s Scientology Interview Is Suitably Batshit Fucking Crazy

According to the DailyMail, Remini’s book, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, is set to be released in November, and will be a blistering take-down of the “church” and its hierarchy.

After spending 30 years as a Scientologist, Remini is only too aware of the bullying, heavy handed tactics the organization likes to employ whenever anybody dares question or criticize them, something she got a small and unpleasant taste of after she dared to leave and then speak out against them.

Church Of Scientology Accused Of Bullying And Intimidating A Clearwater Cinema

As Popdust previously reported, the “church” acted decidedly un-church like—more like a butt sore whiny little bitch in fact— after Remini chose to exercise her first amendment rights, and talk about the difficulties she experienced leaving Scientology during a conversation with friends, which aired on her reality show, Leah Remini: It’s All Relative.

“When you leave, you can leave quietly,” Remini shared. “But If you make a stink in the public world, they call you a Suppressive Person, which means the church has put a stamp on you that says you are bad. They then go to all your family and friends and say you have to disconnect from this Suppressive Person.”

“I decided I didn’t want to raise my daughter in the church because from what I’ve experienced and what I saw, the church becomes your everything,” she continued. “It becomes your mother, your father, your everything. You are dependent on the church.”

Fair enough, right? Nah, not according to those Thetan loving cult leaders "church" elders.

“It comes as no surprise that someone as self-absorbed as Leah Remini with an insatiable craving for attention would exploit her former religion as a publicity stunt in a pathetic attempt to get ratings for her cable show and seem relevant again,” Scientology shot back via a statement to the press.

“She is rewriting history and omits that she was participating in a program to remain a Scientologist by her own choice, as she was on the verge of being expelled for her and her husband’s ethical lapses.”

Whatever losers.

So, shit is likely to GO DOWN after she releases her book—which, by all accounts, sounds like Going Clear, but on steroids.

The Daily Mail reports that in the book, Remini blows the lid on all the bullying tactics the “church” is so found of (allegedly) employing, including blackmail, slave labor, intimidation, good old fashioned abuse and control over high profile celeb members, such as Tom Cruise, Juliette Lewis, Beck, John Travolta and Kirstie Alley.

Alley has already been walking the Scientology line, turning her back on her “suppressive person” former friend, calling her “repulsive” and branding her a “bigot” for daring to speak out about her own personal experience with Scientology.

Remini says she started questioning Scientology after she became disturbed by the mysterious disappearance of Shelly Miscavige—the wife of Scientology head, David Miscavige—who has not been seen in public since 2006.

She landed on the organization’s shit list sometime around Cruise’s high profile wedding to Nicole Kidman, when she made the mistake of publicly questioning Shelly Miscavige’s whereabouts.

According to Remini, shortly afterwards, she filed a “knowledge report” which included criticism of Miscavige, Cruise, and other high level Scientologists, detailing behavior by them that she believed to be inconsistent with the organization's rules.

Remini claims she was subsequently blacklisted within the church, that Scientologist friends of hers wrote damning internal reports about her that lead to an investigation into her family by the church, and that she was “subjected to years of ‘interrogations’ and ‘thought modification.’”

Well, brace yourself Leah, we have a feeling the Thetans are going to be trying to get at you a whole lot more within the next few months.

Another day, another allegation against the Church of Scientology.

This time the organization is accused of bullying a Clearwater, Florida movie theater out of playing Alex Gibney's church expose, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the cinema was forced to drop plans to screen the documentary after pressure from the organization:

Cobb Countryside 12, which had planned to play the movie, informed HBO Documentary Films in recent days that it wouldn't play Going Clear after allegedly receiving threats from the church, according to sources. It's unclear what those threats were and to whom they were directed.

As Popdust previously reported, the documentary examines the many questionable methods employed by the organization, and features former Scientologists' accounts of the chilling abuse, blackmail and threats they allegedly endured while they were members.

The tried and tested usual old celebrity church members were quick to speak out against the film—with John Travolta telling the Tampa Bay Times:

I've been so happy with my [Scientology] experience in the last 40 years that I really don't have anything to say that would shed light on [a documentary] so decidedly negative, I've been brought through storms that were insurmountable, and [Scientology has] been so beautiful for me, that I can't even imagine attacking it.

Meanwhile, former Scientologists praised it, claiming the allegations of abusive treatment and practices by church elders and leader, David Miscavige, were 100 percent true and accurate.

Leah Remini, the organization's most recent high profile detractor, praised the film, calling it “brave" and detailing her own nightmarish experience, from when she joined the church age 9 up to, and after, she left two years ago at age 43.

Remini claims everything started turning sour for her following Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's wedding—after she dared to inquire as to the whereabouts of Miscavige's wife Shelly, who has not been seen in public since June 2006.

Shortly afterwards, the actress filed a "knowledge report" which included criticism of Miscavige, Cruise, and other high level Scientologists, detailing behavior by them that she believed to be inconsistent with Church rules. Remini claims she was subsequently blacklisted within the church, that Scientologist friends of hers wrote damning internal reports about her that lead to an investigation into her family by the church, and that she was “subjected to years of 'interrogations' and 'thought modification.'"

She talked about the difficulties she encountered when she left Scientology, during an episode of her reality show, Leah Remini, It's all Relative.

When you leave, you can leave quietly. But If you make a stink in the public world, they call you a Suppressive Person, which means the church has put a stamp on you that says you are bad. They then go to all your family and friends and say you have to disconnect from this Suppressive Person. I decided I didn't want to raise my daughter in the church because from what I've experienced and what I saw, the church becomes your everything. It becomes your mother, your father, your everything. You are dependent on the church.

Not surprisingly, given their tried and tested well worn modem operandi, the church slammed the documentary, calling it a “bigoted propaganda piece" with “at least one major error every two minutes."

They also took a moment to lash out spitefully at Remini:

It comes as no surprise that someone as self-absorbed as Leah Remini with an insatiable craving for attention would exploit her former religion as a publicity stunt in a pathetic attempt to get ratings for her cable show and seem relevant again. She is rewriting history and omits that she was participating in a program to remain a Scientologist by her own choice, as she was on the verge of being expelled for her and her husband's ethical lapses.

Now, here's the thing….the organization releases similarly themed and worded denials, and engages in vicious take downs of detractors each and every time anyone makes allegations, or dares to speak out against them.

Scientology Acting Like Whiny Butt Sore Little Bitch Over Leah Remini

Are we really supposed to believe that every single one of the ever growing legion of Scientology dissenters are phonies? Making up totally baseless and unfounded lies and claims? Speaking out in order to get publicity for themselves? Inventing stories for absolutely no good reason?

I mean, for a supposed religious organization they sure rack up a shit ton of "unfounded" negative stories and allegations—ranging from waging hate campaigns against former members and those who dare to displease them in some way, shape or form; imprisoning people against their will; forcibly isolating mentally ill church members and preventing them from getting psychological treatment and medications; manipulation and brain washing; forcing church members to sever all contact with any family or friends who criticize the faith; misappropriating church member's donations by using the money to provide special facilities and services to high profile celebrities; forcing low level church members to engage in physically taxing manual labour for ridiculously long hours with no financial compensation; using sensitive personal information gathered during “auditing" sessions to blackmail members who try to leave the church; medical neglect leading to the death of at least three patients in their Narcanon rehab centers; internet censorship and fraud; harassment, bullying and intimidation; sending anonymous smear letters to the families, friends and neighbors of journalists who write disparaging articles on Scientology; psychological manipulation of church members; phone tapping and spying; making false accusations to the FBI of criminal acts supposedly committed by church detractors; stealing medical records; plotting to get Scientology dissenters sectioned in mental hospitals or incarcerated in jail; wire tapping, infiltration and theft of government documents and filing multitudes of spurious lawsuits against detractors with the aim of financially ruining and wearing them down.

As the adage goes, there's no smoke without fire—Although, a more suitable one might be—eat shit, five billion flies can't be wrong.
