She and her sister then spent the rest of their teenage years working regular jobs to pay off their debt to the church, eventually leaving the organization in 2013.

Two years later, she published a book, entitled “Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood And Scientology”, which achieved success and topped The New York Times Best Sellers List.
