Priscilla Presley Says She Has Not Quit the Church of Scientology

Actress Priscilla Presley, known for The Naked Gun trilogy and the former wife of Elvis Presley, has left the Church of Scientology after nearly 40 years in the secretive organisation.

During that time, they are asked many very personal questions, such as their sexuality.

Leah Remini, who famously left the church in 2013, took a different approach and went on to write a tell-all book, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. Although it's still unclear why Presley chose to leave, a disclosed source mentioned that she's had a hard time since her daughter, Lisa Marie, left the group in 2014.

In fact, Lisa Marie left the Church in 2014, with the source adding: ' her daughter leaving made it hard for Priscilla.

"The main motivation for them is money, property and expansion - and that's evident here".

Priscilla raised her daughter, Lisa Marie, in the controversial church which counts John Travolta and Tom Cruise among its members.

Presley - who initially joined the Church after the death of her husband, Elvis - allegedly told friends she was leaving.

Scientology, founded by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard in 1955, has been the subject of controversy for years. Some of those left quietly, like Demi Moore, Nicole Kidman, Katie Holmes and Mimi Rogers. Everyone is so scared; all the well-known people'.

Now, The Daily Mail reports that Priscilla's decision came down to the family.

The actress has frequently claimed that Scientology officials are controlling and intimidating toward members, and has accused the church of abuse and sexual misconduct. Remini has since repeatedly spoken out against Scientology, and now helms an Emmy award-winning A&E series about her and others' experiences with the church.
