"I never saw Will Smith there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre," she continued. "[Will and Jada Smith] opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it."

The "Scientology school" Leah is referring to is the New Village Leadership Academy, a private school largely funded by the Smith family, according to Fox News.

Will and Jada were said to have hired most of the staff, many of whom are Scientologists. The school ultimately shut down in 2003. The famous couple also reportedly donated $20,000 to Scientology's literacy program HELP.
