Today's Blind Items - The Standoff

Usually when you break away from this group, your life becomes hell. If you are a big name and you break away, you will get trashed and your life becomes hell. Whether it is people stalking you or calling at all hours of the day and night or leaking damaging stories, they do it all. They do this each and every time, without fail. Except once. There is an actor who was an A list television actor. After reaching that peak, things slowed down. He was still getting gigs, but not the big ones he was previously able to land. He had a ton of personal things going on and his exes had things to say and they didn't put him in a very nice light.

While all of that was going on, he discovered something about the group that made him want to get away. He told them he was leaving, but before he did, he let them in on a little secret. He had in his possession a document they never wanted to see the light of day. So, they made a deal. He doesn't talk about them and they don't talk about him. He also made a life for himself where he is in control of his living situation and protection. So far, it has gone really well and both sides have kept their agreement. Or have they?

Apparently the group knows they can't go to court or accuse him of stealing whatever it is because he would just release it. So, they have been doing their best to find a way to steal it. The thing is, they don't know where it is, so apparently have planted bugs in some of his friend's homes and in one of his places of business in hopes of learning the location. Three bugs were found when an electrician doing some rewiring of the place of business which led to the discovery of the others.

If it's $cio Jason Lee fits best of anyone who left it.

J said...

If it's Johnny Depp, those bugs are just regular roaches and pubecrabs and stuff.

Brayson87 said...

Does he have the golden plates? 🀣

E said...

E whatever it is must be a big, big secret and I don't know of another secret or mystery they are hiding, except where Shelley disappeared to.

Do Tell said...

GiGi Hadid might be a juror in Harvey Weinstein's trial, says TMZ. BAHAHAHAHAHAHA

E said...

@sandy unless it's an illegal use of their Church proceeds--or maybe documented proof they rent their labor to outside sources for a hefty sum, which would be a clear violation of labor laws

Sd Auntie said...

Must be really evil. Enslavement!,Prostitution and Shelley is dead. Giving the Catholics, mormons and all others a run for the money. Good job! Time to get another identity, turn in the evidence and go on the run.

Hmmm...Well, this screams scientology to me. I guess J Lee makes the most sense for the actor, though I think he's better known for movies than for TV. For his TV acting specifically, he was probably A list due to My Name Is Earl.

Not sure what kind of document he'd have that would give him leverage over the cult. He wouldn't have access to anything about Shelly--most scientologists who haven't been part of upper level management don't even know who she is. I'm going to bet it's something related to the cult's financial shell games. Lee used to use OG scientologists Wiseman & Burke as his wealth managers. They are shady motherfuckers who advocate for offshore banking. The state of California once issued them a cease and desist order for not being properly certified. They manage, or have managed, a lot of the scilon celeb financial portfolios.

Erin said...

I also find it really funny that Jason Lee is planning to release a limited edition book of photos he took while on a cruise ship in 2011--to be titled, appropriately enough, Cruise Ship. I mean, they can't be photos of scientology's Freewinds, but I still find it amusingly ironic. And maybe an intentional jab? I don't know.

Monkeyweather said...

Video, Shelley Miscavige would be my guess

JD said...

I don't think I like the Jason Lee answer. He didn't have a lot of big roles. My Name is Early was kind of his moment. I mean, I guess those Alvin and Chipmunk movies may have been bigger with some audiences than they were with me. He also doesn't have a slew of exe's to trash talk him

I'm a huge fan and glad to hear he's left, but the clues don't really add up.

MissDavie said...

I think Erin has it. Jason Lee and proof of shady financial dealings that could really hurt the Church in the only thing they care about, their bank account.
He has no more idea where Shelley is than we do. He wasn't that high up even during the height of My Name is Earl.

JD said...

Could be Seinfeld? I really just did a 10 second google search for actors who left scio.

hunter said...

Everyone knows Shelley is in The Hole.

It's probably far more serious than Shelley, more maybe a document on how to scam members out of more money by re-releasing the OT levels (which happened).

Christopher has been inactive since 2014 and Lee still is working somewhat. I’m just looking at the words that were used “was getting work”

gauloise said...

jason beghe?

He has been super outspoken and fearless about them

Maybe a document about that woman who died in Florida because they wouldnt let her go to the hospital? Lisa MacPherson?

Or something about child sex trafficking. They recruit them from overseas, offering their mothers US visas.

Two days after her conversation with Ribisi, Llywelyn received a one-paragraph "disconnection letter" from Lee and was labeled a Suppressive Person.[44][45]

Following his divorce from Llywelyn, Lee became engaged to actress Beth Riesgraf. Together, they have a son, Pilot Inspektor. Lee states their son's name was inspired by "He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot." by rock band Grandaddy.[46]

Lee married Ceren Alkaç in California in July 2008; a month later, Alkaç gave birth to a daughter named Casper.[46][47][48] The couple had their second child, a son named Sonny, in 2012.[49] In 2017, the couple welcomed their third child, a daughter named Alberta 'Birdy' Lee.[50] As of 2016, Lee no longer practices Scientology.[51][52] Lee currently resides in Denton, Texas with his family. He also enjoys photography, and is a co-owner of the restaurant Barley and Boar

This would have to be something to do with their finances and/or tax free status. Nothing else is anywhere as important to the scio leadership than money. Shelly's location is known and the police talked to her (supposedly). She is a non-issue legally for the church.
It could also have something to do with asbestos on their cruise ship. Huge fines for that. This would have to be some sort of traceable documentation that would cause serious financial harm to them.

texasrose said...

Are they too dumb not to get Ray Donovan on the job. He'll get it in no time.

Veritas said...

They will be looking for dumb and dumber -Meghan the Mattress and Harry the dim

AngelSleuth said...

Tom Berenger

Freebird said...

Maybe he has photos of Tom & David making out.

Astra Worthington said...

Who doesn’t periodically check their house thoroughly for hidden cameras and bugs? What kind of life are these celebs leading?

I've always liked Jason Lee, despite him giving his poor children such retarded names.
What he has could be ANYTHING. Proof they spies on Tommy Cruise, crap about their tax exempt status, where Shelley is, something about what they do to the children there, really, the guessing is endless.

Erin said...

Well, I'm still going with Jason Lee and scientology. But some of the comments here have me wondering if the document could be related to the Freewinds and human trafficking. The ship's home port is Curacao, which is a trafficking hotbed, and many Sea Org members confined to the ship are from outside the U.S. They typically have their passports confiscated by their superiors once they board. (Per exes, that's the norm. It's also completely illegal.)

That J Lee could have come into possession of damning evidence along these lines seems a stretch. But it's kinda fun to wonder if he's teasing and poking the bear with his "Cruise Ship" photos. I never liked Lee that much. But if he's got the cult by the short hairs, he'll have my admiration for the rest of this lifetime and into the next!

Simon Jenkin said...

i agree with the jason lee specualtion. my friend told me he moved to a town a few towns over from her town kinda out of the blue, and keeps to himself a lot, and aside from a bit of voice work i think the only thing he's really done since then is the jay and silent bob gig, which would've been a favour to his friend kevin smith rather than out of any need to work. if he's managed his my name is earl and chipmunks etc money well enough then i doubt he'd ever need to work again. and fair play to him, until i see concrete evidence he's a scumbag (not scio SP propaganda) i wish him well. i always liked that dude.

Craisins2017 said...

Implies it's Scientology but this all seems a bit far-fetched. Obviously you'd keep copies of any important document in different locations, including bank vaults, on a pen drive and in the cloud from a remote account set up through Tor & a VPN. I can't imagine a situation in which anyone is naΓ―ve enough to believe people keep un-backed-up very important documents.

BlindAsTheNextGuesser said...

Without getting too deep into my encounters with "The Church" it might be helpful towards understanding how there could be a loose document or documents if you visualize them as the world's most disorganized publishing company masquerading as a religion--That is essentially what they are. Scio goes back quite a few decades before modern computing, let alone current data storage, so there is probably a hell of a lot of revealing papers that even David Miscavige does not know about. I would think that he has been careful to cover his tracks since most of his years running things have coincided with modern computing, but LRH was an extremely prolific writer by sheer volume, and not shy about speaking controversial opinions so there is a good chance that whatever any potentially devastating secrets go back to the origins of Scientology and to its Founder. If Jason Lee or anyone else who fits this blind had a relationship with financial advisors from the early days of the cult, it could be a way around having to achieve OT7 or 8 or whatever gets a member to see their holiest of holy B.S.
