No, Priscilla Presley didn’t leave the Church of Scientology

Priscilla Presley has not left the Scientology building.

The actress has not quit the Church of Scientology, her rep told People, refuting rumors that circulated over the weekend.

While it’s unclear exactly when Presley joined the Church, it’s rumored to have been decades ago, shortly after Elvis’ death in 1977.

Daughter Lisa Marie joined at the same time and made a name for herself in the group after opening the Literacy, Education and Ability Program in 1997, which earned her the Humanitarian Award from the World Literacy Crusade in 2002.

Lisa Marie left the Church in 2016.

Actress Leah Remini is actively speaking out against the Church of Scientology. Since leaving the church, Remini has released a book, "Troublemaker," which details her time within the organization as well as her new docu-series on A&E "Scientology and the Aftermath," which speaks to fellow defectors or "enemies" of the church, detailing horrific claims of physical and mental abuse as well as sexual abuse. As more and more people leave the Church of Scientology, more and more horror stories are coming to light. The church, of course, denies all of these allegations. Leah Remini's show airs on A&E on Tuesday at 10pm.

Inside the mysterious Church of Scientology

Actresses Katie Holmes, Nicole Kidman and Demi Moore, as well as filmmaker Paul Haggis, have left Scientology recently, though Leah Remini is the most public defector.

The “King of Queens” alum has been an outspoken critic of the Church, detailing her experiences in it in her docuseries “Scientology and the Aftermath.”

Presley’s rep did not immediately return a request for comment.
