Yesterday we told you that we were looking forward to having a conversation with Jakub Stepniak, a Polish-born aspiring culture superstar who calls himself Kuba Ka, the 'God of Pop,' and who got on our radar when the Church of Scientology spent several months grooming him to be one of its vaunted celebrities.

On Tuesday, Kuba announced on Twitter that he was leaving the church just a week before he was scheduled to celebrate his birthday with an elaborate charity ball at Scientology's Hollywood Celebrity Center. We spoke with Kuba's business partner, actress Vikki Lizzi, who told us her attorney was preparing a lawsuit against the Celebrity Centre for backing out of the expensive event, and she filled us in on a lot of background on Kuba and his relationship to the church. We also found a serious Polish media interview with Kuba that helped us fill in some of his early years. (We hope you have at least reviewed yesterday's story — we think you'll get more mileage out of today's piece if you have some familiarity with the background we found on Kuba in yesterday's article.)

But what we really wanted was a conversation with the God of Pop himself, and last night we got it — two hours with Kuba Ka, his mother Tina Trozzo, as well as his business partners Vikki Lizzi and MJ Powers. Even his uncle, Danny Maghen, took part in our Skype session. (In fact, Uncle Danny was a hoot.)
