How can a mother do this to her child?

Mimi Faust is winning at life right now, but her childhood and teen years were anything but glamorous. Mimi was abandoned and left homeless by her brainwashed mom when she was just a girl. Now that she’s a mom to Stevie J’s little girl, an entrepreneur, and a reality star, she never wants to go back to the darkness that she used to live in every day.

Born Oluremi James, Mimi Faust was the daughter of a woman who was heavily involved in the Church of Scientology. Scientology, developed by L. Ron Hubbard, is a para-religious organization that has been active since the 1950s, but it has been outed as a cult more recently. Mimi was allowed to experience the Church of Scientology for most of her childhood, but when her mother wanted to advance to a new position, young Mimi was taken away from her.
