Johnny Lewis Was Once A Devout Scientologist Enrolled In Church's Substance Abuse Program

| Filed under: Sad SadKaty Perry

More and more details are pouring out about Johnny Lewis' life and each is more surprising than the next.

The 28-year-old former Sons of Anarchy star was found dead in an El Lay driveway after falling or jumping from the roof. Inside the house, authorities discovered his 81-year-old landlady AND cat had been murdered.

In a truly disgusting description, sources say he actually didn't just beat the poor animal, but was "tearing it apart" in a wild, drug-induced state.

We were pretty surprised to learn that he had dated Katy Perry between 2005 and 2006, but it turns out, he was a devout Scientologist too!

His father, Michael Lewis, is in such high-standing with the Church that he actually co-wrote a movie with L. Ron Hubbard in the 80s!

Although the Church has already distanced themselves from Johnny by removing his picture and any mention of him on their website, he was an active member of the Church for years. Instead of enrolling in rehab for his drug abuse, he participated in the Scientology version called Narconon.

Back in 2004, he even spoke on behalf of the program at a substance abuse prevention event in Orange County. Unfortunately, he did not practice what he preached and was not able to prevent future abuse.

We think it's kinda effed up that the Church is just pretending Johnny wasn't a member of the congregation and trying to erase his past, but in no way believe his actions reflect poorly upon the controversial religion.

Of all the things people like to blame Scientology for, this should not be one of them.

There is only one person to be held accountable in this bizarre homicide and he has already paid the ultimate price for his actions.

    You didn't even copy and paste this story correctly. He was not enrolled in their drug addiction program, his mother was. When he spoke, he said that his mother imparted what she had learned on him which helped him avoid drugs. If you can't even copy and paste correctly, u need help

    If you dont want us to blame scientology then why bring it up? I mean, Hitler was raised a Catholic…so what?

    Don't care. He was a brown ass man with a job on 2 different tv shows that most hardworking, sober actors in Hollywood would give their left arm for. He was a spoiled ass idiot who took a woman's life for no reason & killed her cat. Pretty sick.
    I really hate how Directors & Producers keep saying how "talented" he was. I watch the show he was OKAY the guys was no Brando. I hope he rests in peace but enough on the whackadoo already.

    Scientology & the 12-Step religious AA/NA cults turned him into a HOMICIDAL MANIAC!

    IMHO Narconon is as much of a crock and the rest of Scientology with a long history of failure and deaths.

    This is a real tragedy. God Bless the poor woman and cat.
    I also want to point out that mental illness is a very overlooked sickness.
    It is more horrifying disease than any other disease out there.
    So as much as I would like to blame this person. He too is a victim to mental illness,
    which goes hand in hand with substance abuse. I am not excusing his hideous actions. Its vile. However, my brother now sits in prison for mental illness - he is not a criminal, he is ill. I have a lot of rage at how fractured out mental health system is. Lets see Gwyneth and all the other celeb blowhards STAND UP FOR MENTAL ILLNESS. My Mom had cancer and my Dad HAS it now, let me tell you, cancer is nothing next to bipolar and schizophrenia. Oh, while I'm on my rant - instead of asking hard working people who have little money for contributions to cancer, maybe Hollywood elite and ballers should ask each other to raise the funds. Nothing makes me more annoyed than seeing George Clooney, Julia Roberts and especially Goop face asking people in this economy for money. They have enough money to pay for all the rent in NYC. Angers me. Its funny, I've never seen Angelina Jolie ask the public for money, she just DOES it. Gwyneth is too ambitous and narcisstic to go out and DO the work herself. She just wants another notch in her ego. Arrghh. Sorry for the rant. Lastly, lets try to help mentally ill people by being supportive of them so they don't go off the deep end.

    Its funny, I've never seen Angelina Jolie ask the public for money, she just DOES it. Gwyneth is too self ambitous and narcissistic to go out and DO the work herself. She just wants another notch in her ego. Lastly, lets try to help mentally ill people by noticing the signs and supporting them, so they don't go off the deep end.
