Blog: The Newly Bankrupt James Stunt Defends Scientology Leader David Miscavige - 2019-06-07
Bankrupt billionaire James Stunt has published a bizarre YouTube video vigorously defending Scientology Cult leader David Miscavige. Stunt begins his video by denying rumors that he is a Scientologist. He repeats this several times in the video. He then claims that Scientology has hundreds of thousands of followers. Even as he defends Miscavige, Stunt states that if one was conned by Scientology then there are no refunds in life and, "you're the mug that got taken." As reported by the Daily Mail, Mr. Stunt's assets were frozen by a court order in February 2019:
The gold bullion magnate ex-husband of Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone, with whom he has three children, has had his assets frozen under 'proceeds of crime' rules, the Daily Mail can reveal. At a court hearing, secret until now, a judge also slapped a £1,000-a-week spending limit on Stunt, 37, who is described as 'the Alleged Offender'.
James Stunt is the avowed enemy of Daily Mail owner Lord Rothermere. The Daily Mail has been unsparing in exposing the depredations of David Miscavige and Scientology. This may be purely coincidental, but the fact that Stunt and Scientology have a common enemy is worth noting.
