(Fox News) For Leah Remini, leaving the Church of Scientology wasn’t an easy decision to make, but she says it was something she had to do for her 9-year-old daughter, Sofia.

Remini opened up about her decision to ditch the Church, and how her life has changed since.

“[Sofia] was getting to the age where the acclimation into the Church would have to start,” Remini explained, revealing that the Church begins questioning children in a sort of audit process during at that age.

The “King of Queens” star recalled her own experiences growing up in the Church of Scientology and began to question whether or not she wanted her daughter to have the same experiences.
