A former member of Britain’s Got Talent 2012 singers the Jive Aces have claimed they attempted to “brainwash” him into Scientology.
In an interview with The Sun today, guitarist Johnny Gunner says that the other members forced him out of the band after he refused to join their religion.
“I thought I was in danger. I was in the band to play music not be part of a secret religion,” he told the newspaper. “It got to the stage where they said join us or leave. They were a strange bunch.”
The band has made no secret about their beliefs, with singer Ian Clarkson saying: “Scientology has helped me and the band creatively. If anyone asks, I suggest people read L Ron Hubbard. There’s no brainwashing.”
A spokesperson for the band also hit out Johnny’s claims, saying: “Johnny Gunner left in 1989. The band did not become Scientologists until 1991.”
The group will find out on Saturday if they’ve made the BGT live shows.
