'Scientology ruined our sex life'

2012-07-19 09:21
Los Angeles - Jason Lee's ex-wife says Scientology ruined their marriage.

Carmen Llywelyn, who was married to the former My Name Is Earl star for six years, says the church's meddling in every aspect of their relationship, including their sex lives, helped to end their union in 2001.

She explained: "Scientology broke my heart, almost more than Jason did. When you get married and you have that dynamic of family and children there is that entity, that other extra part, that is involved in so much of the intimate details that at this point in my life I couldn't imagine being a mature woman so mature that I had children and actually allow it, literally, into my bedroom.

"The church goes into your bedroom. When you're in session and you're going through the auditing process, if a question comes up or a thought comes up that has to do with your husband or an intimate sexual detail, you are required to say it.

"I don't want to get too gross, but [it would] have to do with sexual positions."

Spies everywhere

Carmen - who has seven-year-old twins Lucien and Lealy - also praised how Katie Holmes handled her split from Scientologist Tom Cruise, including using disposable cellphones to plan her escape from their marriage and claimed it was necessary because the religion has spies everywhere.

She added to Access Hollywood: "My initial feeling was that I knew it was gonna happen. You could tell that she had a plan and that was going to be her saving grace and by her just putting it all out there, I think [it] made it very difficult for them [Scientology officials] to attack her.

"People would spy on her for what they call the greater good, as a Scientologist, whether it was a family member or someone who worked for them, would have been spying.

"Scientology is all encompassing. When it comes to Scientology, people would have told on her literally, they would have lined up to tell on her." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
