Leah Remini, for years one of the best-known members of the Church of Scientology, has left the church following alleged disputes with its management, according to reports.

The departure by the King of Queens actress, 43, was first reported by Tony Ortega, the former Village Voice editor who is working on a book about the church and writes a daily blog about it.

The New York Post also reports she is making a break from the church after facing years of "interrogations" and "thought modification" for questioning leader David Miscavige's rule.

A rep for the actress had no comment on the situation.

Meet Hollywood's newest little super band, with Leah Remini's daughter Sophia on vocals.

"She just started singing very loudly," Remini, 38, said at Saturday's Natural Resources Defense Council 20th anniversary celebration in Beverly Hills, of her 4-year-old. "She used to really not want to be listened to or looked at, and now it's like full-on concerts. [She is] like, 'Have you heard me sing this song … and 18 songs on my iPod?' "

Asked if their friend Tom Cruise's daughter Suri, who turned 3 last week, could jam with Sophia, Remini said, "Yeah, maybe one day! That would be cute. That would be adorable. I love that!" She added Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony should "get Emme and Max up in it!"
