radaronline: Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith have fired the head of their controversial private school The New Village Leadership Academy.
Jacqueline Olivier - the woman the famous husband and wife enlisted to set up their Calabasas campus - was axed from her $200,000 a year position via a telephone call from the Matrix actress.
"Jada phoned Jaqueline and told her that they had 'decided to go in another direction' with the school,” an insider told RadarOnline.com. “As head of the campus her position was becoming untenable as she did not agree with Study Tech and felt uncomfortable with it.” Olivier “thrashed-out” a severance package with the couple and “it’s understood that she signed a confidentiality agreement with regard to her time at the school.”
The school head and the superstar couple were said to have clashed about the school's mysterious Study Tech curriculum which was devised by Scientologist founder Ron L. Hubbard. While the school’s official website simply reads “Coming Soon!” under Head of School, RadarOnline.com has learned that Piano Foster is the new woman tapped for the role.
"They have appointed somebody else who is more 'in-line' with their thinking as to how the school should be run," the source added. Foster remained tight-lipped when asked about her famous employers or any other controversies surrounding the school.
Scientology Founder Exposed as Fake
tgdaily.com: London, UK - Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard made up his qualifications along with his religion, as shown by secret documents released to the Times.
Hubbard bought a sham college and then awarded himself a PhD from it, according to files released by the National Archives after a request by the paper under the Freedom of Information Act.
Back in 1968, Scientologists threatened to sue the British government for libel, after it banned followers from entering the country. To defend itself, the government started gathering evidence that Hubbard was a fake.
In a signed statement amongst the documents, one of Hubbard's collaborators wrote: “The position is L Ron Hubbard [and others] acquired premises somewhere in Los Angeles which they had registered as a university called Sequoia and immediately awarded each other doctorates.”
Whitehall officials followed up on this with the British Consulate in Los Angeles. They were told: "[Sequoia] is a ‘will of the wisp’ organisation which has no premises and does not really exist. It has not and never had any authority whatsoever to issue diplomas or degrees and the dean is sought by the authorities ‘for questioning’.”
The Scientologists, who number Tom Cruise amongst their numbers, have some pretty groovy beliefs. Apparently, we're all aliens who have lived before on other planets, and paying Hubbard's crew loads and loads of money will bring liberation.
