Report: Actress Remini breaks with Scientology

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actress Leah Remini is expressing appreciation to fans and others following word of her break with the Church of Scientology.

In a statement issued Thursday by her talent agency, the former “King of Queens” star said she was grateful to the media, her colleagues and fans around the world for their “overwhelmingly positive support.”

The statement made no mention of Scientology, and the APA talent and literary agency said Remini had no further comment.

But a person familiar with Remini’s decision said the statement referred to her break with the church and public reaction to it. The person, who wasn’t authorized to comment publicly, spoke on condition of anonymity.

A message seeking comment from the Church of Scientology International in Los Angeles was not immediately returned Thursday night.
