Actress Leah Remini splits from Scientology

LOS ANGELES — Actress Leah Remini is expressing appreciation to fans and others following word of her decision to leave the Church of Scientology.

In a statement, 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.

Remini has been a longtime member of the church.

She co-starred in the freshman sitcom Family Tools, which ended a brief run this week, and in the 2007-08 comedy In the Motherhood, and starred opposite Kevin James in the long-running King of Queens that aired from 1998-2007.
