Why wife of Scientology leader was 'banished' - 2014-02-20
The leader of Scientology, David Miscavige, banished his devoted wife to a secretive base after she defied his orders and reshuffled his staff while he was out of town, sources have claimed. The revelations come after actress and Scientologist Leah Remini sensationally filed a missing person's report last year, claiming that Shelly Miscavige had been missing since 2007.
Police later said they had spoken with Shelly - but questions remained about what had caused her sudden and lengthy disappearance from the public stage she had once confidently graced.
Now Vanity Fair has spoken with sources who have given new insights into David Miscavige's fiery temper, his wife's desire to appease him despite her own loneliness and her ultimate banishment.
