In her own words, Brandy is not down with the Scientology cult:
R&B star BRANDY has turned her back on Scientology after turning to the controversial religion following her fatal car crash in December 2006. The singer was eventually cleared of wrongdoing a year after the freeway pile-up, which claimed the life of a fellow motorist, but she admits the accident left her seeking spiritual help.
And when one friend suggested she look into Scientology, Brandy considered joining the faith, which boasts Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Lisa-Marie Presley among it’s high-profile members.
She says, “Someone said, ‘There are these classes that you can take that can better you as a person.’
“I’m like, ‘OK, I’ll go check it out, but that’s all I did, go check it out. I’m not a Scientologist.”
We’re glad to hear that ole gal chose to back away from the Hollyweird cult, but dammit if she couldn’t have hung in there long enough to get her network on and get a job or some sh*t.
