Rumours are circulating in Hollywood that this actress has LEFT the Church very quietly and without causing waves in the Scientology lake. Don’t expect her to be making a Leah Remini documentary appearance anytime soon.
So, tell me, Gossipers:
Who is our actress?

It’s a controversial story with quite a few contradictions and you’d be forgiven for being confused, but the Gossip Life can confirm that Dallas actress and Elvis Presley’s ex-wife, Priscilla, has left the Church of Scientology.
The news broke last month and was swiftly denied by Presley’s camp who claim that she is still in fact a member of the divisive religion, but I hear that Presley has indeed quit and the news story breaking on the Daily Mail disrupted her plan to keep the news quiet and exit as smoothly as possible.
Presley had reportedly told friends that she had secretly quit the religion when somebody leaked the information to the popular media outlet, the Daily Mail, causing the wife of the legendary crooner to quickly issue a denial.
Exiting Scientology is a notoriously difficult process and the church’s backlash at former members has been detailed in multiple documentaries, including Going Clear: Prison of Belief and Leah Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath on A&E.
Priscilla’s daughter, Lisa Marie, quit the Church of Scientology in 2016.
