Kirstie Alley is speaking out following reports that she's furious with actress Leah Remini for leaving the Church of Scientology.

Former Village Voice editor and Scientology expert Tony Ortega claimed Alley was "livid" with Remini for leaving, and suggested some of Alley's recent tweets were about the former "King Of Queens" star.

On Monday, the 62-year-old actress took to Twitter to slam reports, writing:

Alley is a longtime member and ardent defender of the Church of Scientology. Just after she denied that her tweets were aimed at Remini, comes yet another report from Ortega, this time claiming that celebrity Scientologists have received orders from the church's Hollywood Celebrity Centre: "They cannot be 'in comm' with Leah Remini after we broke the news last week that she has left the church."

According to Ortega's sources, Remini has yet to be declared a "Suppressive Person," but she is considered "not in good standing," and members have been told they are not to communicate with her.
