Of course Jada Smith was a Scientologist, says principal who ran her Scientology school - 2017-09-20
Back in the spring of 2015, your proprietor and Mike Rinder sat down with Daily Beast writer Marlow Stern as part of the publicity on Alex Gibney's film, Going Clear. During the interview, Stern said that Will Smith was a Scientologist, and the two of us both corrected him — it wasn't true.
That assertion caused a bit of a media storm, but we had really good sources on this, and we still believe it to this day — while Will Smith had dabbled in Scientology and had at one time financed a Scientology "Study Tech" elementary school, by 2015 he was no longer involved in it at all.
In a piece of our own at that time, we explained that while Will had only ever been a dabbler, it was his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who was the real dedicated Scientologist in the family.
