Jason Lee's Ex-Wife Confirms Everything You've Already Heard About Scientology (Except the One Thing You REALLY Want to Know)

  Jason-Lee-Chipmunks-Poster  In "Hollywood Cult Confidential," an "Enquirer Exclusive," Jason Lee's ex-wife Carmen Llewellyn spills a bowl of beans that has already been spilled.  And yet this CoS dirt is always just as fascinating as it always is.  For me it's fascinating because the Church of Scientology allegedly employs some serious "U SHUT YER PIEHOLE OR UR DED" methods to quiet any negative comments about their <strike>cult</strike> church.  

Carmen joined Scientology in 1995 after marrying Jason Lee, but defected when she and Jason divorced in 2002. Carmen claims, “Jason’s message was that if I didn’t join, I wasn’t going to be with him… so I joined, but it was like a cult, and I foolishly allowed it to take root in me.”  She goes further with her accusations and reveals that Lee was seriously physically abusive, telling the Enquirer, “He was a drunk who beat me up…he whacked me in the face and knocked me unconscious. Once, I was knocked out cold for at least 30 seconds. I had to have my jaw wired.”

Carmen also claims that Scientology was the reason behind the bitter divorce of Tom Cruise and NicoleCarmen-Llewellyn-Jason-Lee   Kidman, describing how she and Jason met the couple when they were still together, “Jason and I were talking to Tom, and we told him that we went to the CoS center in LA. He said brightly, ‘Oh yeah? Well, me and Nicole are Scientologists too! Right, Nic?’ But she turned and gave Tom the most evil look. She stared at him for about 10 seconds, and Tom looked at her like he was throwing daggers with his eyes. I interpreted her look to mean, ‘I am not a Scientologist, and I will not be a Scientologist.’ She was clearly mad at Tom for saying she was. And the next thing you know, they’re getting a divorce!”  She further explains to the Enquirer, "“At the time, the word went around all the Scientologists that ‘Nicole is an S.P. so Tom has to divorce her.’ An S.P. is a Suppressive Person, which is CoS jargon for the devil.”

Llewellyn dishes on John Travolta and Kelly Preston and says they hid their son Jett from the church, but would regularly bring their daughter Ella to church functions, adding, "I thought that was odd."  

She has quite a bit to say (but sadly she didn't address the rumors of furious gay sex and bearding), including revelations concerning the marriage and subsequent divorce of Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley, “Jason and I were talking to Lisa Marie one night and we asked her ‘Come on tell us the truth, why did you really divorce Michael Jackson?’ She said, ‘The reason I finally left him was that I didn’t want him to be in the same room as my children!’”

“Scientology threatened my spiritual health, saying that I’d lose all my friends," says Llewellyn. "I lost my manager and my career. People didn’t return my phone calls. Scientologists followed me down the street. They took pictures of my kids. They’d stake out my house, wait until we came out and follow us. They came looking for me to scare me, I was nearly suicidal.”

She now claims if she sees a Scientologist, she crosses the street.

I would, too.  Scientology scares the shit out of me.  Remember this?

Anastacia is CERTAIN that all of this is ALLEGED and has NO FACTUAL BASIS.  Anastacia is sure Scientology is wonderful.  Don't hurt me.  And Anastacia would prefer Scientologists not follow her, but wouldn't mind if you, wonderful person reading this, followed her on teh Twitteh.

Jason Lee is a Scientologist? Why didn't I know this? I'm just going to assume that every celebrity is a Scientologist from now on, unless I'm told otherwise.

Also, I'm very disappointed to hear that he's a wife-abusing monster (allegedly). He used to seem like a cool guy, in my head, but now I just want to bitch slap him with something made of iron.

TwoBusy

Stories like this are seedy and creepy and deeply, deeply fascinating. Love it.

Katie

Aww, this makes me sad. I totally always like Jason Lee. Harumph.

Stupid crazy Scientologists. I blame them for him being a shithead. Allegedly.

Jessi

Another celebrity crush, crushed. I think I was happier not knowing any of this stuff.

Muirnait

Scientology does sound pretty dodgy, but I think being a drunk, wife-beating jerk isn't Scientology's fault!

Rachel

By luring in people with serious mental illnesses and discouraging them from getting real help, Scientology contributes directly to someone being a wife-beating drunk. Allegedly.

Karen

Okay, but how does she spot a Scientologist on the street so she can cross it to get away from said Scientologist? Do they glow? Or what?

BaltimoreGal

Oh yes, a lot of people are Scientologists that you wouldn't expect!

ALLEGEDLY!

Liz Phair? Oh say it ain't so.

Anastacia

Jen, I had the same reaction re the iron. And also, you make a good point. I'm just going to assume it from now on as well. THEY HAVE BECK. Sigh. BECK. I just want to stomp or kick something. Beck? Nooooooo....

TwoBusy, I know, right? Goosebumps!

Katie, I've only seen him in the movies he made in the early 00s (never Earl or the Oscar-nominated Alvin & the Chipmunks) but he really struck me as someone who'd be cool IRL.

Jessi, that's how I felt about Beck. SADS.

Muirnait (x4), VERY good point. It's kinda chicken/egg. What crazy came first? Does Scientology create the crazy or do the crazy seek Scientology? A question for the philosopher kings, for sure.

Rachel, and you've hit the artery of my biggest problem with CoS. I'm an advocate for mental health. And they deny the existence of scientifically proven imbalances and disorders and say that it's a sign of evil or whatever. And then they deny access to the medicine that allows a person to function normally, or as normally as they can possibly be. Why would you deny a person that? I hate them for this. Seething, white-hot hatred. Because DO NOT TELL ME that I'm making up my mental illness. Fuckers. Yanno?

Karen, LOL! I know! They glow with the radioactive green hue of the Xenu!

BaltimoreGal, THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS LINK! So fascinating.

norm, I KNOW! It's depressing. And they just keep getting more and more people ensnared.

Okay, I was really surprised to see Rob Thomas on the list, so I did a little Googling. The list has to be wrong. He's very vocal about gay rights and that they should be allowed to marry. A Scientologist would never do this.
