Soap Star Sues Chiropractor

She Won't Crack My Back

'Cause I'm a Scientology Reject

12/4/2011 9:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Fairman
"Young and the Restless" star Michael Fairman has filed a lawsuit against a Scientologist chiropractor -- claiming she refused to see him and his family after he was excommunicated from the Church.

Fairman claims he was a prominent member of the Church, but became disenchanted with the way the Church was running things. Fairman claims Church leaders got fed up with him earlier this year, branded him and his wife "suppressive persons" and blacklisted the family from all things Scientology.

After Fairman was ousted, the actor claims he received a letter from the family chiropractor -- an active Scientologist -- informing him she would no longer treat the Fairman family. Fairman also claims she refused to hand over a copy of the family's medical records.

In the lawsuit, Fairman claims he MUST have been discriminated against because he's no longer with the Church -- noting that he's been a good, paying customer since 2003.

Maybe he should get another chiropractor, Enough of suing everyone because they wronged you in someway. Moving on with it.

I refuse to watch, spend money or associate with anyone who is a member of Scientology. They are not a religion but a vicious mind controlling cult who deceives their lower members and the public into believing they are out to help people when it is all about the money. I think more people should boycott the church and their celebrity members.

Scientology is a plague that should be eradicated immediately. Any so called religion based on profit and greed is not a religion but a cult. BOYCOTT ALL CELEBRITY SCIENTOLOGIST!

Look at that - another news story showing that Scientologists are vindictive, brainwashed kooks. What a shocker.
The only surprise here is that the pseudo-science scam of Scientology still has religious tax-exemption in the US. Revoke it now!

He knows how Scientology works, apparently caused enough trouble within the church to get kicked out, and now wants to force a chiropractor to what? Treat him? Because? He's used to her? There aren't any other chiropractors? No, because he's still pissed at the church. That's all. The records issue is covered by law; she either has to give him a copy, or she does not. It's nothing but a red herring to distract from his hissy fit.

exactly what LAW is the stupid scientolo-doc supposed to have broken? Dude, open the yellow pages and call someone else + end of story = move on. Oh, and kill all the lawyers.

I like his character "Murphy" on the show. There are at least two "Friends of Tom" on the show....Sharon Case and Michelle Stafford.

Please TMZ stop calling it a church. Scientology is a cult designed to make its leader tons of money and nothing more.

What year is this? It's discrimination based on religion! I hope he wins! If the chiropractor gets away with this, what's next, not treating someone because of skin colour? Discrimination of any kind needs to stop!!!

If this woman is a doctor, she is violated her oath, Hypocratic, that's more important than being Scientologist. She needs her license revoke. Healthcare is more important than a cult.

they sure do some weird stuff and have some strange ideas, If you're silly enough to believe all the alien stuff and zenu and ron hubbards fiction, then your probably perfectly suited to the cult
