Mimi Faust on Scientology: "They Wanted Me To Sign a Contract To Work For Them And I Refused"

We noticed a lot of people talking about a "Mimi" and Scientology tonight on Twitter, and eventually figured out all the fuss was about reality TV star Oluremi "Mimi" Faust on VH1's show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.
The rebroadcast just happened, so we got a chance to see what Mimi had to say about how the controversial church affected her life.
In a short segment that took place with a relationship counselor, Mimi explained that her mother had been deeply into Scientology, and at only 13 Mimi herself was asked to "sign a contract" but she refused to do so. At that point, she explained, her mother decided to dedicate herself to the church rather than her own kids, and Mimi has been carrying around that feeling of betrayal ever since.
After the jump, we'll explain what kind of "contract" she was talking about -- a contract for a billion years.
We're going to try to reach Faust through VH1 to see if she's interested in explaining more about her family's past. But here at the Village Voice, we're very familiar with Scientology and its practices -- we write about it just about every day.
