Jada Pinkett Smith responds to Leah Remini’s claim that she’s a Scientologist

Jada Pinkett Smith is denying she is a Scientologist after former member Leah Remini claimed she was one.

Remini, whose reality show, “Scientology and the Aftermath” examines the experiences of former members leaving the controversial church, made the claim about Pinkett Smith in a Saturday interview with The Daily Beast.

“I know Jada’s in. I know Jada’s in. She’s been in Scientology a long time,” Remini said. “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.”

According to The Daily Beast, Pinkett Smith did not return multiple comment requests.

By Tuesday, however, The Huffington Post reported that the actress responded to Remini’s claims on Twitter.

Although she acknowledged she has studied Dianetics, Scientology’s main text, and Study Technology, a teaching method developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, she also said she’s studied and participated in aspects of other religions as well.

Remini has not responded to Pinkett Smith’s rebuttal. Pinkett Smith ended her Twitter thread with what some may interpret as a direct response to Remini’s claim.

“I practice human kindness, and I believe that we each have the right to determine what we are and what we are not,” she tweeted, “NO ONE ELSE can hold that power.”

Jada Pinkett-Smith Clears Up A Rumor About Her Marriage

Jada Pinkett-Smith has been hitting the media circuit promoting her movie, Girls Trip.

She appeared on the show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen along with her Girls Trip co-star, Queen Latifah.

Cohen asked her about the craziest rumor about her marriage.  She mentioned a rumor that comes and goes...you know the one about she and her superstar husband Will Smith being swingers.

She said it’s NOT true!  

But what was interesting is what she said after that.  She said, “Yo I wish”.  

Maybe that was a joke or maybe not.  Either way this is something else people can speculate about when it comes to Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

During the interview she was also asked which movie she likes least that her superstar husband has starred in. There are quite a few movies to choose from.  She said, The Legend of Bagger Vance.  

Girls Trip is out now and stars Jada, the Queen, Tiffany Haddish and Regina Hall.

Jada Pinkett Smith disputes accuracy of Tupac Shakur film

“Forgive me ... my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in ‘All Eyez on Me’ to stand as truth,” Pinkett Smith posted on Twitter.

Pinkett Smith tweeted eight times, disputing several scenes featuring her relationship with Shakur, who was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996.

"The reimagining of my relationship to Pac has been deeply hurtful," Pinkett Smith tweeted.

However, the actress did not find fault with the actors who portrayed her and Shakur -- Kat Graham and Demetrious Shipp Jr., the Los Angeles Times reported.

"You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both," she wrote.

L.T. Hutton, who produced “All Eyez on Me,” told TMZ that he was disappointed in Pinkett Smith’s criticisms. He said that he and the filmmakers took some liberties because they were trying to show who Shakur was, TMZ reported.

Hutton said that he studied Pinkett Smith’s words about Shakur in interviews, and believes she was fairly represented, TMZ reported.

Pinkett Smith ended her Twitter barrage with a tweet directed at Shakur, the Times reported.

"Happy birthday Pac, you are cradled in my heart for eternity,” she tweeted. “I love you."
