Scientology Chairman of the Board David Miscavige (who is like 5’3”) at his wedding to his long time wife Shelly Miscavige.
Weird thing though - apparently Shelly’s only been seen once since 2004… and that was in 2007 at her dad’s funeral - with a guard watching her.
1. According to former insiders, Miscavige’s wife Shelly became suspicious of the close relationship between him and his “Communicator,” Laurisse Henley-Smith. Shortly after this, Shelley Miscavige disappeared from the Int Base. She was no longer present at meetings, and her post title, “COB Assistant,” disappeared from internal dispatches. She is thought to be on an intense behavior modification program at a remote, confidential location.
2. Following Shelly’s disappearance, Laurisse became Miscavige’s constant companion. She accompanied Miscavige to Tom Cruise’s wedding, and attended a Del Mar race with Dave, Tom and Katie, where she was photographed with her hand possessively on his shoulder.
3. At a gathering of Scientology celebrities, one celeb observed Laurisse patting Miscavige affectionately on the butt. Laurisse didn’t know she was being observed. Being a conscientious Scientologist, the celeb wrote a Knowledge Report on the incident. The handling? The celeb was ordered to Flag for Sec Checking and Ethics interviews (read “behavior modification”) to find out why she was “critical of COB.”
4. On long flights aboard Tom Cruise’s personal jet, witnesses observed Dave and Laurisse retiring to Tom’s bedroom cabin for hours on end. The cabin’s only feature? A bed.
Let’s add to this the fact that Miscavige ordered Laurisse to divorce her husband, Uwe Stuckenbrock, and Uwe was sent to the Los Angeles RPF, despite the fact that he was suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. Uwe, abandoned and forgotten by Laurisse and subject to stress and hard labor, spent years on the RPF, and eventually died there.
