Not actually as surprising as it sounds: That image above is of the leader of the Church or Scientology, David Miscavige, and his wife Shelly decked out in full Eagles gear. It comes courtesy of David’s father, Ron, and his upcoming tell-all book.
Why is this image not surprising? Because the world’s most famous and visible cult leader was born in Bucks County, raised in Willingboro, NJ, and went to high school at Marple Newtown before he dropped out. That’s the Bucks Co./South Jersey/Delco trifecta. I always wondered how that effected someone, and as it turns out, the outcome isn’t great.
There’s no other info on that image (or Miscavige’s alleged Eagles fandom) in Esquire’s excerpt from Ron’s book, but there is this: His wife Shelly, also seen in the image, “allegedly disappeared years ago. Ron says he used to send Shelly gifts and that a former staff member told him he spotted them at a facility in the San Bernadino Mountains, where Ron believes Shelly has lived since 2005.” Hope she gets Eagles games in her weird cult prison bunker.
