Former high-level Scientologist Marty Rathbun revealed on his blog that the Church of Scientology launched an investigation into SOUTH PARK creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, via The Hollywood Reporter. Rathbun posts alleged memos from the church's Office of Special Affairs wanting to silence Parker and Stone after the airing of "Trapped in the Closet," which poked fun at the church and its top celebrity member Tom Cruise.

The memos reveal that the duo's friends were targeted for public records checks. The names include Matthew Prager (THAT'S MY BUSH!), John Stamos and his ex-wife, Rebecca Romijn and SOUTH PARK writer David Goodman. Later "special collections" were conducted, which include "covert information gathering such as trash collection, purchased phone records, hacked airline reservations [and] purchased bank records." Rathbun says the information is used to find out incriminating information about the target, however the church was frustrated they couldn't find anything on Parker and Stone.
