MiMi Faust Reveals Her Mother Left Her For Scientology

MiMi Faust has been open about the fact that her mother abandoned her for her religion in the past, but never went deep into the circumstances under which she checked out of motherhood…until now.

While appearing on Leah Remini’s A&E show examining the harm done by the church of Scientology, “Leah Remini: Scientology And The Aftermath.”

On the show, MiMi revealed that her mother joined Scientology’s Sea Organization when she was only 9 years old, uprooting her from Atlanta to Los Angeles. She says she was bullied and ostracized by the other children, who called her racial slurs.

When she turned 13, church members tried to get her to sign a contract binding her to the church of Scientology forever. MiMi refused.

As a result, church members booted her into the streets without a dollar to her name. Her mother stayed behind and did nothing to help her daughter, and didn’t have any contact with her for years beyond that point. Peep the clip:

WOW. That has to be a LOT to deal with as a child. SMH.
