A lifelong member of Scientology who worked for three years as a personal assistant at Shelly Miscavige has filed a lawsuit against the controversial religious organization.
The woman, who is identified as Jane Doe in the trial, filed a claim for damages at the Los Angeles Superior Court this week with 14 causes of action, including: imprisonment, kidnapping, defamation, defamation, human trafficking, and negligence.
Doe also provides more information about her close relationship with the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige and details about what happened in the days and months prior to her alleged disappearance.
The court's allegation alleges that Miscavige & # 39; became increasingly hostile and verbally abusive towards his wife & # 39; around 2005, and shortly thereafter Shelley was removed as her husband's assistant and Do was forced to do forced labor.
In 2006, Doe & # 39; saw witnessing a dark-colored tinted vehicle to the main building & # 39; at the Golden Base of Scientology, after which & unidentified men Shelly, who was crying and visibly distraught, dragged out of the building and dragged her into the car, & # 39; according to the lawsuit.
Shelly has not been seen in public since, and Doe has never seen her in the 10 years she has been with the organization, but Scientology spokespersons have always denied that she is missing.

Missing: Do & # 39; witness a dark-colored tinted vehicle to the main building & # 39; at Scientology & # 39; s Gold Base, at which time & # 39; unidentified men dragged Shelly out & # 39; (complaint above)
Doe spoke about meeting Shelly in an episode of the Leah Remini series Scientology and the Aftermath.
She also got a job from Remini after the actress learned about Doe & # 39; s daring escape from Gold Base in the trunk of a car.
& # 39; One of my first jobs was that I was a waitress for the top drivers of the Clearwater Flag Land Base, & # 39; said Doe.
& # 39; Dave and Shelly came to the opening and I served them, and Shelly thought, "oh my god, I love this girl and I want her to work with me."
She continued: & # 39; You know, they were the kingship of Scientology so I was honored. & # 39;
Doe says she quickly made the switch from Clearwater to Gold Base, the home base for the group's top managers.
& # 39; Shelley was sweet & # 39 ;, Doe said, but everyone else she encountered seemed & # 39; not happy and scared & # 39 ;.
However, the situation began to change in 2005 according to the complaint, which states that Miscavige & # 39; increasingly hostile and verbally abusive & # 39; was facing his wife.
& # 39; In about the third year that I worked with Shelly and David, Shelly became increasingly disagreed with David about how he ran the organization, how he treated the staff, & # 39; said Doe when she appeared on Aftermath.
Shortly thereafter, both women reportedly came out
& # 39; David Miscavige had Shelly removed from headquarters as his secretary / assistant in the Golden Base. Jane Doe, due to her connection with Shelly Miscavige, at the age of 26, was punished by being removed from her position as a steward and forced to & # 39; hole & # 39; to enter, & Doe 39 claims in her complaint.
& # 39; The Hole is a set of double-wide trailers at Gold Base where senior executives are accused of & # 39; Ethical violations & # 39; were held under strict supervision.
& # 39; Jane Doe was forbidden to have any communication with Shelly Miscavige. & # 39;
Do & # 39; spent three months in the & # 39; hole & # 39; and wash & # 39; prohibited from having any communication with Shelly & # 39 ;.
Epicenter: Shelly has not been seen in public since, and Doe has never seen her in the 10 years that she stayed with the organization (Gold Base above, where Doe had worked for Shelly)

After those three months, she & # 39; was forced to do physical and manual labor & # 39 ;, he claims in court.
When she finished her manual labor, Doe started promotional videos for the church, but in 2016 she was ready to free herself from Scientology in the process.
& # 39; Make written requests to leave to her superiors seven times. All requests were denied & # 39 ;, is the complaint.
& # 39; Jane Doe was told by her superiors that if she left, she would get cancer and die. On one occasion, Jane Doe was physically reluctant and could not leave. As a result, Jane Doe suffered mentally and considered suicide. & # 39;
Finally she got out by hiding in the suitcase of an actor she had hired and was not a Scientologist, but says she was persuaded to return.
& # 39; At the age of 37, Jane Doe returned to CSI to & # 39; & # 39 ;, trying to not lose all ties with her family. Instead of doing what was agreed, CSI continued to treat Jane Doe as a prisoner, & # 39; explains the complaint.
& # 39; Jane Doe was forced to do everything with the guidance of a & # 39; handler & # 39 ;, including the use of the bathroom, showering and sleeping. She had to interview on video in which she was forced to make false confessions and to give false positive testimonies about her experiences with CSI.
& # 39; Jane Doe was detained for three months, not three weeks, as instructed. Jane was not allowed to leave. During this time, Jane Doe's grandmother died and was not even allowed to leave for the funeral. & # 39;
Do & # 39; s lawyer Brian Kent said that this is just the first of many lawsuits that his company plans to do against the Church of Scientology.
& # 39; Scientology has been trying for decades to destroy the divisions, to cover up the long history of physical, emotional and sexual abuse of its members, including the most vulnerable members, its children, and its doctrine against those who escape and the find courage to speak & # 39 ;, Kent said.
& # 39; This is just the beginning and we will not stop until they do it. & # 39;
The Church of Scientology did not respond to a request for comment, but a member of the organization's legal team spoke to NBC News on Wednesday.
& # 39; The trial includes nothing more than unfounded allegations of all suspects & # 39 ;, said Rebecca N. Kaufman.
The lawyer also said that the filing was strewn with anti-religious lies that had been cleared out of the tabloids and accusations refuted in courts decades ago.
She continued: & # 39; We are convinced that the lawsuit will fail, & # 39; said Kaufman. & # 39; Federal courts have already established that service in the religious order of the Church of Scientology is voluntary and is protected by the First Amendment.
& # 39; In addition, the evidence will show that while serving the church, the prosecutor became free and free, traveled the world, and lived in comfortable surroundings. The church will defend itself vigorously against these unfounded accusations. & # 39;
