Feshbach and Tommy Davis have been revealed to be the couple who helped Leah Remini escape the controversial organization. Remini asked Davis why the leader of Scientology David Miscavige's wife Shelly was nowhere to be found. Shelly has not been seen since 2007. Scientology officials insist she works behind the scenes for the group. When Remini asked Davis about Shelly's whereabouts, Davis told her that she “didn’t have the f**king rank” to ask about Shelly’s whereabouts. Feshbach was also revealed to be the person who wrote a complaint, called a "knowledge report," about Remini.
