"(Preston died of cancer in 2020.) I asked what Lisa meant by 'unruly,' and she described late nights with Travolta talking about what the rest of the world thought about Scientology, which the church considers a forbidden exercise," he recalled of their conversation. “'I told him about the HBO thing. He had no idea. I told him that Debbie Cook was gone. He had no idea. He has no Internet or email. He’s so sheltered. All he knows is what they tell him. He’s smart but sheltered.'"

Lisa Marie previously told Ortega the reason why she ended up being a Scientology celebrity in the first place.

“I got in right after my father died,” Lisa Marie shared at the time, referring to her famous father, Elvis Presley.

But Lisa Marie previously explained her mother's lack of participation.

“My mom’s not Clear. She takes courses and reads books, but she’s not involved,” she said. “I never finished it. I quit after three months. It was bulls**t. It was just about control. It was just a way of getting more money.”
