Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Top Goss! -

Kirstie Al­ley is ex­pand­ing her prop­erty port­fo­lio in Clear­wa­ter, Florida – and her $5.7 mil­lion pur­chases are less than a kilo­me­tre from Scientology’s Flag HQ.

Kirstie, 67, bought her first man­sion, boast­ing six bed­rooms and water views, from for­mer Scien­tol­o­gist Lisa Marie Pres­ley in 2000 for $2 mil­lion be­fore sell­ing it just a year later. She bought the prop­erty back again for $2.5 mil­lion in 2008, and her son True, 25, lives in the at­tached guest house with his fam­ily.

Now it’s been re­vealed Kirstie’s qui­etly scooped up sev­eral other lo­cal prop­er­ties since 2014. Not only did she pay $1.6 mil­lion for a neigh­bour’s home, she also put down an­other $1.6 mil­lion for a huge sub­di­vi­sion slated for a gated en­clave with eight lux­ury houses – that will likely be snapped up by fel­low fol­low­ers of the con­tro­ver­sial re­li­gion.

Woman’s Day is told the “Queen of Scientology” is build­ing her king­dom in the area so she can fur­ther throw her­self into her stud­ies.

She’s fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of the church’s celeb poster-boy Tom Cruise, who has for years been do­ing all he can to ce­ment him­self as a se­nior fig­ure of the faith. But with Big Brother star Kirstie ex­pand­ing her prop­erty port­fo­lio in the area, it looks like she could be giv­ing him a run for his money!
