Inside Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's Scientology School for Kids - 2020-07-27
There was some healing that needed to happen. And so, in October 2018, Hollywood superstar Will Smith joined his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, for a special two-part episode of her Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk.
One year prior, The Daily Beast had published an interview with Leah Remini, the ex-Scientologist turned whistleblower who alleged that Pinkett Smith was a devoted practitioner of Scientology—a costly endeavor (reaching its highest "Operating Thetan" levels can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars) that comprises tales of intergalactic overlords, dead alien souls, "body thetans," and the curious theory that humans evolved from clams.
"I know Jada's in. I know Jada's in. She's been in Scientology a long time," Remini told me. "I never saw Will [Smith] there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. They opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time."
