As most of us know, David Miscavige is the evil ruler of Scientology who has shown his brainwashed subjects that what he lacks in physical height, he makes up for in ruthlessness. Dear Wendi Deng, before you get the clit tingles for David Miscavige, you should know that yes, he’s a real-life Bond villain, but he’s nowhere close to being a billionaire. You can go ahead and cross Little Lord Davey off of your list of dream men. Besides, I doubt you want to suddenly “go missing.”
David Miscavige’s estranged father, Ron Miscavige, a former Scientologist who got into the Alien Cult of L. Ron Hubbard in the 1960s, has a tell-all book coming next month, and a ho ain’t happy about it. The ho being Ron’s son, of course. Ron book’s Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, And Me is about how he introduced David to Scientology and watched his son go from a cute, little happy boy to a diabolical and manipulative dictator who lives in opulence as some of the cult’s followers wallow in grossness at Gold Base. David is going to be on 20/20 this Friday to talk about his book, which comes out on May 3rd. And Scientology’s lawyers are trying to stop it from seeing the light of public eyes.
Tony Ortega, a journalist who has been exposing the fuckery of Scientology for years, writes on his site that David Miscavige’s lawyers have threatened to sue the book’s publishers for defamation if it’s released. In the cease and desist letter, Little Lord Davey’s lawyers claim that there’s many lies in Ron’s book. Most of these bits of info have been in other tell-alls including Going Clear:
i. That our client was never officially appointed to be L. Ron Hubbard’s successor but rather seized power by outmanoeuvring his rivals;
ii. That Gold Base is surrounded by spiked fencing pointing inwards;
iii. That working and living conditions at Gold Base were appalling and staff were not permitted to leave;
iv. That our client created “The Hole” as a means of punishing Sea Org members and that people were subjected to deprivation and violence whilst detained in “The Hole”;
v. That our client lives in lavish conditions whilst Church staff live in poor conditions;
vi. That our client’s management style is erratic and abusive;
vii. That our client hired Private Detectives to carry out surveillance on Ron Miscavige.
If a Scientologist says, “This is a lie,” you should read that as, “This is the truth!” The book’s UK publisher Silvertail has pretty much wiped their asses with that cease and desist, because they will release the book as scheduled.
Scientologist turned anti-David Miscavige warrior Leah Remini was also interviewed by 20/20, and she said that when she found out that Ron left Scientology, she tracked him down and encouraged him to write the book.
“I called him and I offered my support because I know he must have felt alone. I just wanted him to know that we were willing to take them in. There is no place for them to go unless they have family outside of the church, which is very rare. We’re all gonna speak up. You’re not gonna just bully people telling their stories.”
One part of the book that really has Scientology’s lawyers mad is the part where Ron Miscavige alleges that L. Ron Hubbard wanted a committee to run Scientology after his spirit left the planet. But David Miscavige really wanted to be the sole leader, so he busted out a coup d’etat to become the head crazy of Scientology. I hope that history repeats itself and Tom Cruise realizes that he should be the head crazy of Scientology and tries to take the crown from David Miscavige. I can’t wait to hear about how Kirstie Alley and John Travolta had to turn the hoses on Tommy and David after they got into a slap flight in garden of the Celebrity Centre.
