Sofia indeed had a very comfortable upbringing.

Sofia Bella Pagan Mother Leah Left Scientology because of Her

Her parents are former active members of the Church of Scientology, especially her mom Leah’s attachment to Scientology was really great. But, the actress left the Church after a series of questionings about its management in July 2013.

In 2015, Remini opened up on her family series It’s All Relative that one of her main reasons for her departure from Scientology was her daughter. She said,

“I decided I didn’t want to raise my daughter in the church because from what I’ve experience and what I saw, the church becomes your everything. It becomes your mother, your father, your everything. You are dependent on the church.”

On 3rd November 2015, Remini also released a book called Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. It is all about her life at Church.
