Jim Carrey’s Late Lover Reveals Actor’s Dark Secrets In Shocking Video

The footage could spell trouble in Carrey’s wrongful death lawsuit.

Jim Carrey Wrongful Death Lawsuit Cathriona White Video

A blockbuster secret video of Jim Carrey‘s tragic ex-girlfriend telling all about his twisted double life has emerged as a critical piece of evidence in an ugly wrongful death lawsuit.

The video — viewed by RadarOnline.com — paints the Liar, Liar star as a depressed, drug crazed, orgy indulging lothario who gave his lover, Cathriona White, multiple sexually transmitted diseases!

Cathriona, 30, took a fatal overdose of pills in Sept. 2015 — a cocktail of drugs supplied to her by Carrey who obtained them using the fake name Arthur King, according to a lawsuit filed by the woman’s estranged husband Mark Burton.

Burton has sued Carrey, 54, claiming he tried to cover up his “complicity in Cathriona’s death” after the fact with a “bogus text message” in which he pretended that “he had misplaced the drugs.”

But in secretly recorded conversations with a close friend, Irish-born Cathriona admitted her marriage to Burton was one of convenience to allow her to live in the United States, Radar has learned.

“He’s like my friend for years,” she said. “He said, ‘I’m sick of you being in this situation’ [without immigration eligibility] so I’m going to help you.’ We were in Vegas and we went and got married. Then he dropped me at the bus station.”

Cathriona’s confession from beyond the grave would seem to support Carrey whose lawyer blasted the lawsuit as an “outlandish shakedown.”

“My client will not pay money to end this opportunist’s transparent shakedown lawsuit,” attorney Martin Singer told Radar.

“Mr. Carrey has suffered a great deal in the last year with the suicide of the woman he dearly loved, and it is outrageous that he should be subjected to this predatory lawsuit.”

Stunningly, Burton also alleged Carrey gave Cathriona multiple sexual transmitted diseases, including herpes and gonorrhea!

In a undated letter intended for Carrey, Cathriona confessed she was “disrespected, degraded” and “called a whore” after the actor refused to own up to passing on the diseases.

“I wanted an apology, to be acknowledged and to respected enough to take responsibility,” the makeup artist allegedly scrawled.

While the video could save Carrey in the lawsuit, it has also unmasked the true depravity of the comic, Radar has learned.

In the video, Cathriona described Carrey’s off-the-wall behavior and cocaine use — a drug she called “sugar.”

“He roller-coasters a lot. . .over Christmas I guess sugar f***ed him up,” she said. “It really f***s with him, makes him really depressed.

“Then he started smoking pot, and then he kept eating more sugar, and then he was just like having these breakdowns, like meltdowns.”

She concluded: “It’s like 50 shades of grey, 50 f***ing million shades of Jim — and I’m 50 f***ing million shades of f***ed up because of it!”

Tom Cruise Spied On Ex Nicole Kidman’s Friend Russell Crowe, Feared Cheating

The paranoid actor ordered fellow Scientologists to tap his calls.

Tom Cruise and his Scientology allies were infamously rumored to have wiretapped Nicole Kidman after their nasty split in 2001. But now, a shocking new tell-all about the religion is claiming the paranoid actor also spied on his ex-wife’s friend, Russell Crowe.

In Steve Cannane‘s book Fair Game: The Incredible Untold Story of Scientology in Australia, the journalist alleges that the 54-year-old father wanted to dig into the then up-and-coming star’s relationship to Kidman and pry inside his personal life.

Cruise “wanted to find out more about the conversations she was having with her long-term friend,” former Scientologist Marty Rathbun told Cannane in the book. “We got in a big background number on Crowe. We went and investigated him to find out everything about him right down to the doctor who delivered him.”

Masterminded by Cruise, the church began a full-blown “surveillance operation” on Crowe, now 52, who was rising to fame for his Oscar-winning role in Gladiator.

Despite the scheming superstar’s suspicions, “there was no evidence that Crowe was being anything other than a good friend” to Kidman, Cannane wrote.

Rathbun, who claimed he knew about the content of the calls and even briefed Scientology leader David Miscavige on the matter, insisted the conversations were innocent.

“In my personal opinion, there was nothing to warrant any concern,” he assured Cannane.

As Radar previously reported, Cruise and Scientology also allegedly destroyed Kidman’s relationship with her older children, Bella, 23, and Connor, 21.

According to ex-Scientologist Leah ReminiBella slammed their mother , now 49, as an “SP,” or Suppressive Person, and refused to talk to her after the divorce.

can you believe that that old toad Hubster “Don’t Call Me Looney” Hubbard actually believed he found a cure for radiation sickness and that smoking actually cured cancer? Here’s a terrific explanation of how he possibly came to this conclusion

  • Avatar

    For those who are puzzled by the phrase: “MONOPOLY of radiation healing”, here is the abridged version: Early on, in the early 50s Hubbard observed that consumption of niacin makes the skin flush.

    In the 50s all kinds of wild speculations were going around about vitamins. The true causes of deficiency diseases like scurvy, kwashiorkor, rickets and the like were a recent discovery.

    So Hubbard, very impressed as we all were with the threat of nuclear annihilation, got caught up in the craze.

    He “invented” something called Dianazene and went around claiming it could handle radiation sickness. Read all about it in the book “All About Radiation” except oops you can’t, somehow it is not in the Basics and not sold by Scientology anymore. Anyway, Dianazene is mostly niacin, just like the earlier “GUK” formula.

    Why did Hubbard think it solves radiation sickness? You have to go back to the basic concept of Dianetics. In auditing you are supposed to recall or “re-experience” traumatic moments. During the process, attitudes, emotions, sensations and pains that were part of the original traumatic moment will re-appear. Auditing a broken arm, years later, suddenly you feel a pain in your arm. They call this “running out” the pain. You “run in” (turn on) the pain or whatever by recalling the moment of pain. You “run out” or relieve the pain by continuing to remember the moment until it no longer affects you.

    So, when Hubbard saw that your skin turns red when you take niacin, did he think: “Better look this up and learn about capillaries and the effects of niacin..”? Nope. Did he think “Here is a phenomenon that I don’t understand.”? Nope. He immediately just knew that the red skin was sunburn or radiation “running out”. Quite an irrational leap of faith but we are talking about Hubbard here. The same guy that thought you could give someone a toothache by reminding him of his prior lifetime as a clam.

    So now we have the idea that niacin can “run out” or cure radiation damage, sunburn, you name it. The sauna also turns your skin red, maybe that is in the mix too.

    Complete bollocks but he came to London and did a whole lecture series on it, the 1957 London Congress on Nuclear Radiation, Control and Health. While the book compiled from this congress is no longer available, you can buy the actual lectures for a mere $175 in most major languages. To be fair the congress is not exclusively about niacin, some of it is about various other woo-woo procedures he thought could handle radiation sickness.

    For his whole life he never backed down from this ridiculous logic. When the Purification Rundown came out he said it “proofs one up” against radiation and that Scientologists who have done Purification would be more likely to survive a nuclear exchange. All because of the “niacin flush”.

    But it gets even stupider. In the 50s there was a confusion between the words “nicotonic acid” (niacin) and nicotine, the active component in cigarette smoke. Some even said that you could absorb niacin by smoking. This is why Hubbard said that smoking could cure cancer, and that the main reason for cancer was not enough smoking. Who knows, maybe Hubbard was getting red in the face from so much smoking and decided he was “running out” a sunburn or something.

    So it is that niacin became part of the Purification Rundown. You take enough to get a red skin, then when the effect starts to fade you take more until you are taking 5,000 mg a day with no reaction. Why 5,000, not 10,000 or 3,000? Not explained. Would it be less for children? Also not something Hubbard thought about. This is a practice that is not based on any actual study. It has been “tested” by getting lots of people to try it. The criterion for success of the test is that the person is willing to say they benefited. I was in one of the original pilots. There was no “group of participants taking 3,000 mg” and “other group taking no niacin”. There were none of the controls and safeguards that would go with even the most cowboy style “clinical test”. There were just a bunch of people trying it and a bunch saying it was great. Since the only way to get out of doing it forever was to say it was great, I don’t think the “Success Stories” prove anything.

    But that is why Hubbard thought he was the only one who could “solve radiation”. From the chance conflation of the niacin flush with radiation burns.

    Great post today as usual Rod. I always enjoy your Sunday columns. Your find on the “H.A.S.U.K. Atomic Energy Healing Division Emergency Station” was fascinating. One of the reasons the FDA raided Scientology in 1962 was because Hubbard was selling “Dianazene” a pill he claimed could “run out” radiation:

    Dianazene runs out radiation – or what appears to be radiation. It also proofs a person against radiation to some degree. It also turns on and runs out incipient cancer. I have seen it run out skin cancer. A man who didn’t have much liability to skin cancer (only had a few moles) took Dianazene. His whole jaw turned into a raw mass of cancer. He kept on taking Dianazene and it disappeared after a while. I was looking at a case of cancer that might have happened. –L. Ron Hubbard, “Radiation and Scientology”, lecture of 13 April 1957

    Hubbard also claimed that cigarette smoking could run stored nuclear radiation out of the body.

    We are today the only people whose processes will actually cure or handle, in any way, shape or form, atomic energy burns … you get some guy’s case in order, and then you can cure his radiation burns with fair rapidity. More work has to be done on this, but I can tell you right now that it is the one thing that does something about it. Gives us a monopoly. More importantly, it gives us this interesting position. Just being able to cure this makes us the only civil defense agency on the face of Earth today. Think of that for a minute. Because no other agency has the knowledge or equipment to even vaguely handle it.Now, our researches are going out at once in the direction of proofing human beings against being affected by atomic radiation, which of course makes nothing out of the bomb … We can put a being, a thetan, into a position where he cannot be affected by atomic radiation.We’re trying to go further than that, much further than that because that has no salability. That’s pie in the sky as far as the public is concerned. But proofing a body against atomic radiation is quite another problem. And that problem is under study at this moment. And we have gone so far in this program that we’re already establishing the exact format, and so forth, of the publications to be called “Radiation Burns, Their Danger and Treatment,” published by the organization saying, “See your professional Scientologist and if you can’t see him at least go to a group and get some Group Processing. If you can’t do that, why, God help you.”
    — L. Ron Hubbard, “Aims and Goals of Scientology”, lecture of 14 February 1956
    Well, JS, he quit selling dianazene (mostly niacin) but never got over his whacky idea that niacin could cure radiation burns. I think it is simply because of the niacin flush, which he assumed was due to old sunburns or some such. But decades later when he put together a pile of random woo to create the Purification Rundown he threw the niacin into the mix. 5,000 mg per day.I think it is really because niacin affects the body in a noticeable way even if there is no deficiency. The only other vitamin that does that is vitamin C, and you really have to take a lot for your bowels to turn to water.

All About Radiation By a Nuclear Physicist and Medical Doctor ('Dr.' L. Ron Hubbard)

ALL ABOUT RADIATION

This book’s title,“All About Radiation”, is a bit misleading because in addition to a lot of spurious text on “radiation,” the author devotes a fair amount of space to trumpeting the wonders of Scientology. But since the author in question is L. Ron Hubbard, a healthy dose of Scientological proselytizing is to be expected. And, to be fair, Hubbard’s misguided ramblings about radiation are about as coherent as his bizarre assertions on the powers of Scientology, so the book is fairly well balanced in its incoherence.

The book’s first laugh comes when the reader realizes that the “Medical Doctor” and “Nuclear Physicist” credited with writing it are, in actuality, “Dr.” L. Ron Hubbard. In reality the science fiction writer and then-burgeoning cult leader was neither a doctor nor a nuclear physicist. Indeed, Hubbard flunked the class he took at George Washington University From the inside flap of All About Radiationthat he frequently cited as his qualification to discuss atomic matters. Perhaps he felt he made up for his academic failing by traveling into outer space without his body to examine the Van Allen Radiation Belt – another one of the writer’s many wacky claims.

All About Radiation opens with a section (“All About the Atomic Bomb”) gleaned from various other books on the subject including John Hersey’s Hiroshima. The real fun, however, doesn’t begin until the second section which is really just a bunch of transcribed Scientology lectures. It is entitled “Man’s Inhumanity to Man” by L. Ron Hubbard, C.E., Ph.D. The civil engineering and doctorate degrees, by the way, are as phony as Hubbard’s tales of galactic gallivanting. The civil engineering degree allegedly came from George Washington University, but Hubbard did not graduate from that or any institution. And the honorary doctorate for Hubbard’s “work” in Dianetics came from a diploma mill.

The foreword to this section slathers such praise on “Dr.” Hubbard’s “research,” it should be noted that the writer – Johann Tempelhoff – wrote many other Scientology documents known as “Professional Auditor’s Bulletins” or “PABs.” Here are some excerpts of the foreword’s extreme puffery:

After a period of two years in which Dr. Hubbard and a team of research Scientologists investigated brainwashing, nuclear radiation, etc., the British organization (i.e. the Hubbard Association of Scientologists International’s congress on “Nuclear Radiation and Health”) invited him to submit his findings to Scientologists in Europe, hence the Congress.

Scientology, the science of knowing, came out of the same crucible as the atomic bomb. It was developed for good, not evil. For that reason Scientology has been called that branch of atomic science which deals with human ability. As its founder has been trained as one of the first nuclear physicists it can be seen why.

All About Radiation is notable for early examples of some of Hubbard’s characteristic linguistic and “health” inventions. On page 41 of the book he employs the nonsense term “thinkingness” to describe human thought. Hubbard uses this Hubbardism several more times during the course of the section. Later in the book he describes the following Scientology version of a laying on of hands:

A man came into the HASI (Hubbard Association of Scientologists International) in Phoenix. He had been driving past one of the atomic bomb explosion sites and as he went past the site at some considerable distance away, he saw the flash on the horizon. At once his face and eyes swelled and he could hardly drive into Phoenix. He was in terrible condition and felt very bad about this. So I just gave him a Scientology assist and the swelling went down immediately.

On pages 91 through 93 Hubbard boasts that Scientology is “leading” in the development of a chemical to deal with the harmful effects of radiation. The formula for this “wonder” drug dubbed “Dianazene” is as follows and should be taken, Hubbard advises, daily with milk and chocolate:

200 mg. of Nictonic Acid
10 grains of Iron Ferrous Gluconate
25 mg. of Vitamin B1
50 mg. of Vitamin B2-Riboflavin
200 to 500 mg. of Vitamin C-Ascorbic Acid
25 to 35 grains of Dicalcium Phosphate

Not only does Dianazene “run out” radiation, Hubbard states, “it also proofs a person up against radiation to a degree.” And if that weren’t enough, Hubbard adds, “it also turns on and runs out incipient cancer.” Wow.

On the far-flung (from radiation, that is) topic of combating brainwashing, Hubbard is again ahead of the curve: “Any Scientologist with an Electro-psychometer,” he brags, “can tell if somebody’s loyalty has changed.” Is this what happened to Nicole Kidman? He goes on to recommend the following: “If one suspects that one of one’s associates has been brainwashed, the best thing to do is to get hold of a Scientologist for he can handle the matter with ease.”
'Dr' L. Ron Hubbard solicits an loyalty oath from a tomato
Hubbard’s legendary paranoia and egomania converge effortlessly when he addresses the pesky Communists who supposedly felt threatened by his organization’s amazing anti-brainwashing abilities: “By the way – don’t be surprised that certain Communist elements fight Scientology and try and give us a bad name. We have undone all their tricks.” The FBI was less than impressed with Hubbard’s anti-Communist efforts.

In case any reader missed the point about the God-like nature of Scientology, All About Radiation includes the following postscript:

The interest of the Hubbard Association of Scientology International in Radiation are only these:

It creates widespread hysteria; Scientology can handle hysteria. It creates physical disabilities; Scientology can prevent or treat them.

Scientology is the principle agency that is preventing and treating people for radiation at this time.

The Radiation count of Earth has not been increased by bomb testing. The anguish of Earth has been multiplied by bomb terror. You can survive with Scientology.

There is another Scientology Cold War-era book entitled The Science of Survival (1951) that is advertised on the back of All About Radiation, but unless some kind Thetan donates an original edition to CONELRAD, it will probably go un-reviewed here.

My Personal Experience of Scientology – Part 1 / 我关于山达基教的亲身经历

 by rea59 in life

(This is a 100% factual account of what happened to one of my best friends and is my attempt to highlight some of the potential dangers of certain organisations existing in and around the world we live in.)

I would like to take this opportunity to speak about one of my best friends of a few years ago. His name was Joe and I feel that what happened to him is something that should be highlighted and laid bare in an open and broad minded fashion.

Back in 2011, Joe was a regular member of our social circle. We would meet up regularly, hang out and just do what friends normally do. Everything was fine until one day when we had the usual weekend catch-up. He arrived at the bar rather later than usual, which was unlike him. When we all enquired jokingly as to where he was, we noticed he was in a much happy mood than normal. He then proceeded to tell us that while he was shopping in Central London, he came into contact with what at first appeared to be a street salesman. After a few minutes, it was revealed that the gentleman was a member of the church of Scientology.

(The Central London branch of Scient0logy.)
A brief discussion later, he thought he had heard enough to be convinced to enter their premise and possibly sign up. He said the first thing he had to do before anything else was to partake in something called a “personality test” to analyse the areas of his life needing improvement. This was conducted by one of the members of the Scientology group in a private room, which involved Joe holding a device they called an “e-meter” and during questioning, the needle on the instrument would either rise or fall depending on the answer given.

Even though I knew him very well and was sure he was generally content with where he was going and the direction his life was taking, they managed to convince him using the “e-meter” results, that there were areas in his life that needed serious addressing and without it, he would not progress forward.

(The “e-meter”)
This of course led to the obligatory purchase of a few Scientology interview sessions known as “audits” and some books which cost altogether just over £100. “Auditing”, Joe went on to explain to us, was apparently the psychological removal of past memories and experiences he had collected that might be affecting his present day life. This was only to be conducted on a one-to-one basis and was strictly confidential.

So, after the breakdown of what Scientology was all about, we understood a little more about it but were still confused as to what they were trying to achieve with our friend. Were they trying to help him out or start draining him of funds? Still, he was in very high spirits after his afternoon meeting with them and was due to start his first “audit” the next day.

I rang Joe the following evening intrigued to find out what happened in this “audit”. Again, he was highly elated and very happy, perhaps too happy if such a thing actually exists? Though he did mention that because of the confidentiality agreement with them, he could not repeat what was actually said during the process. He went on to explain that this again required the use of the “e-meter” and the interviewer continuing to ask questions along similar lines of the first free “personality test”.

I mentioned beforehand that the needle of the “e-meter” would rise and fall according to his answers he gave to the various questions. The rising of the needle would identify some unresolved mental problems or issues that were then to be cleared away one by one. This was shown by the “e-meter” needle remaining static when that particular question was asked. This “audit” procedure was to be repeated as many times as possible until the needle remained static for all questions asked of Joe. Once attained, you would be known as a “clear” within Scientology.

(John Travolta, a world famous Scientologist, being “audited”.)
The alarm bells started ringing as soon as he mentioned this because each “audit” required a separate payment and this would continue on for an unspecified amount of time. The interviewer actually concluded that Joe needed quite a few “audits” to even begin to be remotely “clear”. I told him to be careful getting involved with this organisation. He acknowledged my concerns but said it seemed at least worth a try for now. He had already booked two more scheduled “audits” so I left it at that and hoped he knew what he was getting into.

Over the next week, he actually attended three more sessions and that’s when our real concerns started kicking in. He told us how they would continue asking the same exact questions over and over for hours on end. When one memory (or “engram” as they called it) was cleared away, they would ask him if he felt a mental release or saw a bright light flash from his peripheral vision. At first, Joe said absolutely not, but after a few hours of this, he actually experienced this phenomenon. Small, electrical bursts in front of him that signified to him his mental cobwebs being brushed away. We put this down to him beginning to hallucinate after all those hours of being constantly barraged by questions repeatedly over and over again. To me, a dangerous and damaging form of mind manipulation.

We also tried to warn him of proceeding with their courses, but he was already signed up for a whole load more and at a considerably heftier price. Part of his so-called treatment plan from the Scientology team was for Joe to voluntarily confess to someone all the wrongdoings he had committed in his life which were discussed during the “audit” sessions. Remember, there was nothing held back or undisclosed, it was a very frank and open process with the interviewer. So, embarrassed of possibly having to confess his most personal sins from his past to his closet friends, he unbelievably walked into our local police station and started reading out a full report of all he had ever done wrong! When Joe mentioned this to us, we could hardly believe our ears. The kindly policeman then laughed it off and said that if he finally regretted his actions, this would be considered punishment enough. The brainwashing procedure was well and truly in full swing. This situation was going downhill very fast.


(L. Ron Hubbard)
I then decided to do some personal research of my own into Scientology and came across some interesting facts. Back in 2011, it did not have as much exposure as it does today. The founder was a man called L. Ron Hubbard. He was originally a science fiction writer who wrote books about fantasy mostly. After moderate success, he developed what he called “Dianetics”, a user guide explaining the relationship between body and mind. Some of its concepts relate back to standard psychological principals whereas others seem much more far-fetched. Scientology seems to mix truth with fabrications to initially entice people to join its cause. Mr. Hubbard also served in the army for a short period but was relieved of duty apparently due to his inability to command.

(Dianetics, known by many as the origination of Scientology.)
Shortly afterwards, he pursued his ideology of “Dianetics” and vastly expanded it into the co-called religion of Scientology. He then took to the high seas and created the “Sea Org”, an elite circle of core members of its group and sailed to various ports promoting Scientology. Most of the ports however barred them access so they were forced to return back to the USA and Mr. Hubbard went into seclusion for a number of years.

I also read a number of other negative articles where certain members who attempted to leave the organisation were given death threats or actually physically harmed. Other examples involved members racking up huge debts to finance the long and expensive courses on offer. Something that didn’t come as a surprise to me whatsoever.  I was, to say the least, very worried about the path Joe was being led down.

This brought me to the most worrying piece of information I had found so far. The story of Xenu. This sounded more like something out of Mr. Hubbard’s science fiction novels than anything else, involving galactic federations, space leaders, humans infested with thousands of souls called “thetans” and how “auditing” is actually the process of cleansing these “thetans” from our bodies one by one. Pretty far out there, I’m sure you’d agree. But if you follow the courses they have on offer in sequential order and progress through “The Bridge to Total Freedom” as they call it, you will not come across the story of Xenu until very late in the game. In other words, when you are fully onboard with Scientology and are willing to accept almost anything they will say to you. Scary stuff indeed. Even the contract new member have to sign is for 1 billion years. Yes, you heard that right. So that when you are reincarnated after this life ends, you can pick up your studies from where you left off. To this day, I’m still not sure if Joe had read that in the small print or not, but it is most definitely there.

(Image taken from a South Park parody about Xenu, which Scientology tried to ban.)

Famous quote by L. Ron Hubbard: “Writing for a penny is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion.”

I rang Joe the next day and recited the information I had found on L. Ron Hubbard, “Dianetics”, almost everything. But he said they were briefed at the very start of every session to not read any material on the Internet or view any media concerning Scientology as the world was determined to undermine them and see their initiative fail. My warnings fell on deaf ears and he made his feeling very clear to me on the matter. I could already see the damage from this group working its way into one of my best friend’s lives at a frightening pace. His expenditure was now well over £1000 and with no end in sight.

But, from here, things would take a turn for the worse that none of us could ever have expected…

Jason Lee sports scruffy white beard as he’s seen out for the first time since revealing he’s left Scientology

He announced earlier this month that he’s left Scientology.

And Jason Lee was spotted in public for the first time since revealing he’s left the controversial religion as he stepped out in Dallas, Texas, on Monday.

The 46-year-old tried to go incognito in a straw hat and eye glasses, as he chatted to pals in a parking lot near his Texas home.

Jason was one of Scientology’s prized catches – pictured in promotional material alongside fellow stars such as John Travolta and Tom Cruise.

But earlier this month he quietly revealed that he has quit.

The star confirmed in an interview that he and wife Ceren Alkac are no longer involved with the religion.

Having relocated his family to Denton, Texas just over one year ago, the actor spoke to a local website to resolve rumours that he was there to start up a Scientology centre.

‘If Ceren and I had an idea for a business, it certainly wouldn’t happen at the cost of someone else’s,’ he told thedentonite.com.

‘And being that we don’t practise Scientology, and that we aren’t particularly interested in opening religious centres in general, we have no plans to open a Scientology centre.

‘Quite a few rumours about me/us floating around but none of it’s true. We’re not here to buy up or change or take over Denton, put some kind of personal stamp on it.

‘We’re just here like anyone else who wants to be a part of Denton’s very cool creative community, and to be involved and perhaps help where we can.’

Jason, 46, and his second wife Ceren married in 2008. They were rumoured to have split last year, with reports that his commitment to Scientology had come between them.

However it appears the two are now back together, and living with their children in Texas.

Jason was previously wed to Carmen Llywelyn between 1995 and 2001.

Last year Carmen wrote a scathing article about her experiences with Scientology for Gawker.com – blaming it for their split.

She said: ‘Jason had been a Scientologist for about five years when we met.

‘He was introduced through his ex-girlfriend, Marissa Ribisi, and her family. When I think back, I believe a part of me knew if I didn’t accept Scientology the marriage would be over before it even started.

‘Jason and I had spoken about Scientology many times. Our relationship was serious; we had just moved in together.

‘Eventually, I started to feel like he was forcing Scientology on me, past the point where I didn’t want to go any further.

‘He would never stop talking about it.

‘It became a source of contention and I realised that unless I accepted Scientology the way he did and the way he wanted me to, we would most likely cease to know each another.’
