Maggie Gyllenhaal and Leah Remini are not in a feud involving Scientology, despite a completely made-up report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this fake news.

Remini has been an outspoken critic of the controversial religion since leaving the Church in 2013. The actress created and hosts the A&E docuseries, “Scientology and the Aftermath,” which aims to expose allegedly harmful practices within the organization. Despite Gyllenhaal not being a Scientologist, a new RadarOnline headline blares, “Nasty Feud Explodes! Maggie Declares War On Leah Over Scientology Bashing.” The accompanying story claims the actress has many celebrity friends who follow the religion, so she’s not happy about Remini attacking their beliefs.

A supposed “source” tells the repeatedly discredited site, “Maggie and Leah used to be close but they’ve had an epic fall-out. The problem, is that Maggie grew up with a lot of people who were raised in the Church and is still friends with some of them like Michael Pena and Giovanni Ribisi.” The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to say Remini’s A&E show “is really car-wreck television for her.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us there’s no feud between the two actresses. This is simply a non-issue designed to stir up nonexistent drama. In fact, Gossip Cop previously called out RadarOnline’s sister publication, Star, for creating a fake rift between Gyllenhaal and her famous brother Jake.

This also isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has had to bust an outlet for concocting a phony report surrounding Remini’s departure from Scientology. Back when the actress was a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars,” the National Enquirer wrongly reported she warned producers not to book Kirstie Alley on the show because of her ties to the Church. This latest article is more nonsense.
