Leah Remini left the Church of Scientology in July 2013, but the fall-out is far from over! In an exclusive interview with Radaronline.com, her sister claimed that she's still experiencing harrassment that she believes is linked to the church.

Nicole Remini-Wiskow, Leah's 47-year-old sister, claims that when the King Of Queens star first left the Church of Scientology in 2013, she experienced harassment she believes stemmed from the controversial organization.

"The church was calling me like crazy," she told Radar. "When Leah was first declared a suppressive person they called me everyday. I would hang up and then they would call me right back."

Remini-Wiskow alleged that the church even called her then-15-year-old daughter, until she threatened legal action.

Undeterred, Remini, 45, released her tell-all book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology in early November. And strange incidents began occurring once again.

"All of my social media got hacked," Remini-Wiskow told Radar. "That was the weirdest thing that had ever happened to me."

Remini-Wiskow only heard of the hack after friends who had seen the odd posts texted her.

"They turned my profile picture into a penis," she claimed.

Although she has no proof that Church of Scientology was behind the cyber attack, the oldest Remini sister said she feels that the timing was too close to be a coincidence.

"The timing of it was questionable," she said. "It was the day we were doing press for Leah's book, Troublemaker."

A church rep told Radar, "This is false. It never happened. This is just another in a series of publicity stunts for Leah Remini’s book."

Now, Remini-Wiskow lives in Minneapolis with her family, far from the drama she has experienced.

And she told Radar that things have definitely quieted down, for her and for her sister.

"I was on the phone with her yesterday," she said. "She didn't complain about anything."

Remini's DWTS partner Tony Dovolani recently claimed he'd experience harrassment from the church, but a Scientology rep said, "This is nuts. It never happened. Like we have said before, this is just another publicity stunt for her book."
