A new report claims former Scientologist Leah Remini is planning to publicly confront Tom Cruise over the practices of the controversial religion, but the story is entirely made-up. Gossip Cop can exclusively clear up the situation.

The actress, who’s been an outspoken detractor of both Cruise and Scientology since leaving the church in 2013, hosts an A&E docuseries investigating alleged wrongdoings within the religion. The latest issue of In Touch now quotes a supposed “source” as saying Remini “has been dying to confront” Cruise and plans to do so on her TV series.

“She had planned to finally ambush him at the LA premiere of The Mummy and ask him to tell the truth about Scientology and why he hasn’t seen his daughter [Suri] in years,” says the dubious insider. “But The Mummy didn’t have a premiere in LA. Leah finds that suspicious.” The outlet’s questionable source further contends that Remini is now “looking for another opportunity for a confrontation” and even believes she can convince Cruise to help her “take down Scientology.”

Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a reliable source close to Remini, who exclusively assures us the magazine’s claims are “100 percent untrue.” The actress never attempted to accost Cruise with TV cameras at his movie premiere, nor is she plotting any other showdown with the actor. The actress certainly isn’t afraid to publicly condemn the religion, but she isn’t hunting down Cruise for a face-off.

Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to debunk a false tabloid report surrounding the religion. Gossip Cop previously debunked an OK! cover story alleging Cruise was leaving Scientology after supposedly falling in love with The Mummy co-star Annabelle Wallis. Shortly after that fabrication, we called out the National Enquirer for wrongly reporting Cruise was quitting Hollywood and moving to Scientology headquarters in Florida. This latest article is equally bogus.
