The King of Queens alum left the controversial religion in 2013, and ever since then, she's been "under constant threat and assault by the Defendants as a result of her public departure from Scientology," she claimed.
In the paperwork, her attorney stated Remini "has been stalked, surveilled, harassed, threatened and intimidated," and they also alleged she's "the victim of intentional malicious and fraudulent rumors" via social media accounts controlled by the church that "exist solely to intimidate and spread misinformation."
