“They were like, ‘there’s someone in your life who’s actually draining you, who’s a negative force, and it’s normally the person closest to you’.

“And it’s like, ‘I think they’re trying to split my marriage up now’.

“Then you’re fully in because you’ve got no family or friends and your family and friends are the Church of Scientology.

“It took me a while to go, ‘Wait a sec, what is this?’

Three months in, Matt tried to leave, but they wanted to speak about what concerns he had.

Eventually he just didn’t go back.
