“I have a lovely wife and I have 4 children.”
–L. Ron Hubbard, in a filmed interview entitled “The Shrinking World of L. Ron Hubbard”, filmed in 1968 by Granada Television – England.
This was the only time Hubbard allowed an outside crew to interview him.
The fact is that Hubbard had 7 children at the time of the interview. Why is he lying about this?
1) Nibs Hubbard (L. Ron Hubbard Junior):
Nibs, third from the left, with father and friends
In July 1958 when L. Ron Hubbard gave the Clearing Course lectures, it was his son Nibs that assisted him on the podium. In the 1987 video release he can still be seen. However in the 2006 DVD release he is gone. (see link for details)
2) Katherine May Hubbard:
Born on January 15, 1936
3) Alexis Valerie Hubbard:
To Whom It May Concern
Frank Dessler acted under my direct orders and as an agent of the father in all steps he took concerning my child Alexis Valerie Hubbard. Further, he took no steps where I was not present. Sara Northrup bringing any action against Dessler is acting in the spitefulness of revenge because he would not turn against me, his employer, and assist her efforts to gain full and complete control of the Book Dianetics and ownership of the Foundation to the benefit of the Communist Party [and] her lover Miles Hollister.
