DID BOB BLOW? Evidence that Scientology may have lost its biggest donor of all time - 2017-12-09
In case you didn't notice it, we were actually pretty gobsmacked by a photo that we showed you last week. That photo provided the first hard evidence of something we'd been hearing for quite some time — that the richest Scientologists in the world, Bob and Trish Duggan, were splitting up.
For years, the Duggans have been Scientology's biggest donors, and we looked forward to seeing the giant trophy they were given each October at a celebration of Scientology's biggest benefactors, and to see what funny "status" was invented for them. In 2016, they were named "Invictus" for what we estimated was $80 million to $90 million in giving just to the International Association of Scientologists, which doesn't count the additional millions they've given for Scientology building projects around the world.
But this year, Scientology leader David Miscavige gave out another "Invictus" trophy, but only for Trish and her kids. Bob was not in the photo.
