Will Smith still denies he has become a member of the Church Of Scientology, but there are new stories again today that say otherwise. Radar magazine has a new cover story saying Will and his wife Jada, along with Kimora Lee Simmons, are all new members, and set to be the celebrity face in hopes of gaining more African American members. MSNBC says…
In the piece, the magazine said, “The Church has also set its sights on African Americans, opening up a center in Harlem in 2003 and making a strong play for Hollywood supercouple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett.”Despite a fervent denial from Smith’s rep—“I can tell you with 100 percent certainty this is not true”—sources close to Smith earlier told this column that the actor definitely is becoming a member of the religion. “He’s been getting more and more involved (in Scientology),” said one source. “And it isn’t just him, it’s definitely Jada, too.”
Back in January, the New York Daily News reported that Smith was distributing Scientology propaganda to the crew on his movie "Hancock", so it's pretty clear that he is a member. It's also clear the a scientology church in Harlem is a fantastic idea. People there are receptive to rich white coming in with ideas about how to change them. I like to call it, "Harlem – Where The Smiles Are Always Free".
