Alexander Jentzsch, the 27-year-old son of Scientology president Heber Jentzsch, died last week after complaining of a fever the night before, leaving his grieving mother, Karen de la Carriere, without any closure.
For Ms de la Carriere left the Church some two years ago, and because of her decision, she said her son was forced to disconnect from her - an act which she has labelled 'savage.'
Ms de la Carriere revealed to MailOnline the tragic life of her only child, saying: ‘For two years, he was gone from my life, and a few weeks ago his life fell apart…and now he’s dead.'
She described how her son's wife was allegedly pressured to have an abortion, triggering a downward spiral that ended with his death last week.
Ms de la Carriere, who is the premiere collector for recently passed contemporary artist Thomas Kinkade, said in an emotional interview that she tried in vain to visit her son’s body at the Los Angeles County Morgue.
But even that was impossible, because she was excommunicated by the Church of Scientology and deemed an SP – a suppressive person.
She wept as she said: ‘I put in 35 years, I lived on rice and beans, the discipline and the savagery…there’s no mercy, there’s no benevolence. The Church of Scientology has no charity.’
