Leah Remini isn’t the only one dropping shocking Scientology claims. Her good friend Tony Dovolani is claiming that members of the Church of Scientology followed him by car two years ago, when he was partnered with her during Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars.
Dovolani, 42, made the allegations to a TMZ cameraman while walking through LAX Airport on Sunday, Nov. 29.
“She informed me a lot about Scientology,” Dovolani said of Remini. “I mean, you want to read [her book] because it really opens your eyes to injustices being done.”
Dovolani, who even had Remini’s memoir — Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology — on hand, went on to reveal how he was allegedly affected by Scientology during their DWTS season in 2013. (Season 17 ended in November 2013. Remini, 45, left the Church four months earlier in July.)
“I know I was followed a few times. I think they try to find anything they can on a person and try to use it against them,” Dovolani told TMZ. “They couldn’t find anything on me because I’m a happily married dude. And I don’t do anything wrong!”
When asked if he was scared, he replied: “No. I live in a free country. I’m from Kosovo.”
A rep for the Church of Scientology told Page Six in a statement, “This is nuts. It never happened. Like we have said before, this is just another publicity stunt for her book.”
