The Bloody and Tragic End of Scientology’s Biggest Pop Star

On April 22, the day before his death, Jakub Stepniak recorded a phone message for one of his doctors.
He is barely audible in it. He thanks his doctor for calling him and says little more than a whisper that he is with his uncle and that "the inflammation is so bad". Then he says something about trying to get in touch with another doctor. And he ends the message with one ominous final utterance: "I don't know if I'll survive until morning."
The next day, April 23, Stepniak's uncle Danny Maghen, who lived in his apartment, found Jakub unavailable. He died in his sleep.
Five years earlier, Stepniak celebrated his 25th birthday in Santa Barbara, California with his father Andrzej, a Polish economist, and two of his entertainment managers, Vikki Lizzi and MJ Lord. The occasion was recorded on video and Andrzej, smiling, holds up a poster proclaiming his son "Kuba Ka, the God".
Kuba Stepniak is originally from Poland (“Kuba” is a common abbreviation for “Jakub” in Poland), achieved local fame as an up-and-coming child who made charity events possible with major international stars around the turn of the century. Then, after some difficulties in his homeland, years later he appeared in Hollywood as an "international pop star" named Kuba Ka. He released a song with Flavor Flav that appeared on E! Network in a short-lived reality series and unironically began to call himself the "God of Pop". After a brief flirtation with Scientology ended in disaster in 2017, he renamed himself Amen Ra, an Egyptian god.
He was a chiseled, tall, handsome singer and dancer who was constantly working on a new video or album and always chasing his dream of international fame. And then, in late 2020, he suddenly developed a strange skin condition that was bleeding and in pain.

His family complains that his doctors were unable to diagnose what was wrong with him and that they made mistakes prescribing medication for him. Stepniak's mother, Tina Trozzo, an attorney, is investigating a malpractice lawsuit against Stepniak's doctors who stole $ 400,000 beyond his insurance, she claims.
It's a shocking story of Hollywood's endeavors gone wrong: Stepniak was killed by incompetent medical care in one of the world's richest and most technologically advanced cities, and ruined the burgeoning career of a future superstar who was just 30 years old.
Except that's not really the truth. The real story is more interesting - and much more disturbing.
I met Kuba Ka and his mother Tina in 2017 when he announced on Twitter that he was leaving the Church of Scientology, which had decided for a few months that Stepniak was really on the verge of becoming its new superstar.
Kuba Ka (everyone still calls him that even after changing it to Amen Ra) was a lot more humble and disarming than I expected when we talked on Skype for a couple of hours, and I liked him a lot more than I expected .
He had a childlike trust in other people and really seemed to believe that his art could help to heal the world.
I also found it charming that he had come into conflict with Scientology for asking outrageous questions. For example, he was very impressed by David Miscavige, the top leader of the organization. Most Scientologists, even those who have been in the Church for decades, never get a chance to meet Miscavige, but just weeks after Kuba Ka began his church celebrity training, he met the man twice.

Little did he know when Cuba asked if he could read Miscavige books that he had made a major faux pas. Scientology has millions of written words from books and guidelines, but everything was written by its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, who died in 1986. And while Miscavige is in total control of the organization today, he would never dream of writing a new book on Scientology "technology" alone.
Because of these and other transgressions, Cuba and the Church found that they had irreconcilable differences. A major 26th birthday party for Cuba, scheduled for March 28, 2017 at the Hollywood Celebrity Center, was canceled and the singer took it so hard that he was briefly hospitalized.
I lost sight of him most of the time at this point, but not before I heard that he had decided that he is now an Egyptian god named Amen Ra. His outfits became even more unusual, his songs even more focused on his qualities as a deity.
But it was a shock to hear that he had died last April, and that he had died so young. I turned to Tina and was stunned by what she and Uncle Danny had told me about Cuba's past few weeks.
And yet what Kuba Ka killed was more terrifying than even they seemed to suspect. It wasn't until I got the man's medical record to confirm what the family was only hinting at that I began to understand the real horror of Cuba's end.
When I was initially doing research on Cuba Ka's early life and it was difficult to wade through the vast amount of mythologies that Stepniak and his entertainment managers had published about him, I was fortunate that a Polish journalist, Borys Kossakowski, had a thorough biography of Cuba for a Polish magazine in 2015.
Kossakowski is now ending his stay in Seattle, and I called him to see if he had heard of Cuba's death. He had and was just as stunned as I was.
In his 2015 magazine article, Kossakowski stated that Stepniak was from Gdansk and made a name for himself in 2000 by organizing charity concerts to help stray dogs and cats. (According to the claim in the Santa Barbara video that he turned 25 in 2016, that would mean Stepniak would only have turned 9 when he showed up as a party planner in Poland. Kossakowski's article first suggested Kuba Ka couldn't be that young as he claims.)
Stepniak's advertising campaign in Poland ended in 2004 and he said to Kossakowski: “I am still in pain. I cannot accept what happened in Poland. "
He stated that he was partly inspired by then first lady of Poland, lawyer Jolanta Kwaśniewska, who had supported his efforts. But then, he claimed, she forced him to cancel a benefit concert for Christmas 2004 because it clashed with one of her own events. Then she is said to have said to him: "You have no place in show business."
This incident was so traumatizing, Stepniak said, that he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder for years afterwards. He moved to the United States in 2007 and tried a fresh start, focusing on getting his body in shape as he grew up. "To be honest, I'm still not feeling well," he said. "I struggle with PTSD all the time - fitness allows me not to invest energy in sadness, anger and depression."
Kossakowski asked him where the idea of ​​declaring himself the “god of pop” had come from. Stepniak replied that this came out of a conversation with Frank DiLeo, Michael Jackson's manager. (Cuba claimed that he met Jackson himself in Poland and that the singer predicted great things for him.)
DiLeo directed Jackson from 1984 to 1989 through some of Jackson's greatest achievements. For example, it was DiLeo who persuaded the gloved man to shoot the thriller video. DiLeo managed Jackson again in 2009 shortly before the death of the King of Pop. But DiLeo is perhaps even better remembered for his role as Tuddy Cicero in Martin Scorsese's 1990 gangster classic GoodFellas, who ran the taxi rank for his older brother Paulie, played by Paul Sorvino. It is DiLeo's character Tuddy who is allowed to smash Joe Pesci's skull towards the end of the film.

“It was like this: We were sitting in the hotel with Frank DiLeo. He said: 'Cuba, I will make you a god.' I liked that, "said Stepniak to Kossakowski. Unfortunately for the Polish singer, DiLeo died in 2011 after this alleged conversation. Even so, most of Kuba Ka's marketing started with the idea that DiLeo selected him as his next big project after Jackson.
In 2007, DiLeo was the subject of an elaborate profile of Nashville scene writer Jack Silverman, who is himself a local musician. Silverman tells me today that DiLeo tended to get involved in unlikely projects in his later years.
“I can actually see him say something like that,” Silverman says when I asked if DiLeo had actually told an ambitious newbie that he would make him a god.
But after DiLeo's fatal heart attack, Kuba Ka would have to make it alone in Hollywood.
Cuba's career was reportedly saved by LaToya Jackson and then other managers when he created his Greek god personality and released some records that received little attention.
His fame may have peaked when he appeared in a short-lived reality series on E! Network called New Money that made fun of people who had more money than good taste. His episode aired on June 12, 2015 and showed him competing with two other "millionaires" for the title of the stickiest spendthrift of the week.
The opening lines of Cuba's segment, showing him swimming in an indoor pool, capture the feel.
Narrators show: See, the eighth wonder of Vegas, Kuba Ka!
Kuba Ka: I'm Kuba Ka. I'm 17 and I live all over the world. I'm a modern rock and roll gypsy.
Narrator: Seventeen? Hm. Math has to be different in Poland.
Cuba: I am like Poseidon, the god of the seas.
Narrator: Whatever you say, you Greek, Polish, unusual person.
The show's skepticism and mocking tone were well established from the start, with Cuba being haunted through its grand hotel suite for him to display numerous ridiculous props, including a crown that he allegedly kept on a pillow on his bed ($ 12,000 ), the suite itself ($ 15,000). Night) and a metal breastplate to wear on stage ($ 50,000).
It all comes across as a nod that the show is thoroughly in league with, including the next segment where Cuba shows off his $ 7,000 worth of Versace-tipped chopsticks to his manager - his mother Tina - Go in leather bikini bottoms and chaps on stage.
"But it's not even sexy!" she blurts out in her rather charming accented English.
The next time we see him, Cuba has swapped those spiky underwear for red underwear, which has a distinct Sean Connery-in-Zardoz flavor, and he's being wired for a stage show where he'll hover over a collection of scantily clad dancers .
What follows is a performance that only begins to describe the word “Cringe” when Cuba “sings” the text of a song that doesn't seem to go much beyond “Here we go!”. how he "dances" in the limited way while strapped to a harness. The camera also briefly captures the crowd, which is sparse.
At the height of this train wreck, a small burst of sparks suddenly emerged from the center of Cuba's breastplate.
Narrator: Cuba's fans are raging. Both.
Kuba Ka: Thank you very much!
At the end of the episode, the narrator announces that second place goes to the woman of sudden wealth whose shopping spree clears entire furniture stores, and this week's first prize goes to a flamboyant Hollywood dress designer who spends tens of thousands on clothes for the family pooch and his boyfriend proposes marriage to him in front of the camera.
Kuba Ka was third out of three places.
When I spoke to Cuba in 2017, he had spent a decade in Hollywood chasing immortality, but what drew me to him was that the Church of Scientology actually appeared to be shopping into his dream for a short while.
In a two hour Skype session, I spoke to Kuba, Tina, Uncle Danny, and two of Cuba's entertainment handlers, Vikki Lizzi and MJ Lord.
The first thing I noticed was that Cuba was surprisingly humble for someone unironically calling himself the god of pop, and he was too polite to interrupt Tina, who kept stepping in to add details from her perspective, not just as his mother, but also as a lawyer who was very protective of her only child.
We went into his background, his charity shows in Poland, and his later encounter with DiLeo, and then I asked him how he'd gotten into Scientology after several years of recording in Hollywood.
He stated that he was increasingly dissatisfied with the way Hollywood is dealing with young talent. “They sold me for photo shoots. I felt like a piece of meat, ”he said. "They would say, if you don't undress, we'll send you back to Poland."
He said he would hear things about Scientology that have a reputation for being drug free and generally oppose the better side of Hollywood.

"When I was finally there, I was the happiest person," he said. And at first so much seemed to harmonize with his own personal interests, as he was greeted “amazingly”. "They told me they could help me with all of my dreams." And he described being treated like royalty right away.
But I wondered how Scientology should know how to treat him like a celebrity when he wasn't really well known. And he explained that there was a middleman, a film producer who worked for Variety magazine. (The producer who worked on promotions for the magazine didn't respond to my inquiries about why he was directing people to the Scientology Celebrity Center.)
After this introduction, a Scientology handler named Noah Bolduc was assigned to Cuba and became her constant companion in the Church.
"I was a bit surprised that Cuba wanted to be part of this church," said Tina. “But he wasn't a little boy anymore and he deserves his freedom. My son's dreams are bigger than life. "
But as the love bombs continued, Cuba's business partners became more and more suspicious.
“I was suspicious that they were putting so much into him. I thought there must be an ulterior motive, ”said MJ Powers. And Vikki Lizzi had reasons of her own for being suspicious of Scientology after the experiences of her friend, actor Jeff Conaway, who died in 2011.
"You need someone young," Vikki spoke up, and there was some truth in that. Some Scientology celebrities are getting on in years.
"They wanted to maintain my fame," said Cuba.

The others, too, were put under pressure to take courses with Cuba and pay large sums of money to the church, which they resisted.
Meanwhile, even on an introductory level, Kuba Ka received quite astonishing treatment and special access. For example, within a few weeks he met someone most Scientologists never know: church leader David Miscavige.
"It was the closest thing to Michael Jackson," he said. “I've never met anyone who was so powerful. It was like meeting an emperor or the Pope. "
I asked Cuba what Vikki had said - that he had also had the opportunity to meet John Travolta, but had been told it would only be private in a secret room at the Celebrity Center. Cuba smiled but said he probably shouldn't say anything publicly. So we went on.
Cuba said things started to get a little awkward when he turned 26.

It turned out that Cuba had ideas on how Scientology could make some improvements, and it didn't go down well.
“I told him that some of the classes should be free or that people could donate whatever they wanted, even if it was only a dollar. This is how you catch up with the homeless and other needy people, ”he said. “And then they started not to like what I was saying. I thought it should be like taking people to a temple where everyone is welcome. I could see that it wasn't and it was very painful for me. I don't believe in that. I want to do things for others. ”(The Church of Scientology did not respond to requests for comment.)
By now, he said, the early honeymoon was over and he was being told more and more rules to follow if he were to rise up the ranks of Scientology.
“I told them I love their mythology, but I didn't really do it for spiritual reasons. I think you got it wrong. They wanted access to my bank account and medical records. They said I had to trust them. "
"I tried to warn him," interjected Uncle Danny. “I took a course with them 33 years ago. I knew who they were and tried to warn Cuba. Even after 33 years you are still sending me flyers! "
Cuba also had ideas on how to counter the terrible reputation of Scientology in the media. “I told them you can't just turn down Leah Remini, you should talk to her. I wanted to invite you to the event. "
Invite Leah Remini? To the Celebrity Center?
"I said to Noah, please arrange a meeting with David Miscavige so I can make suggestions for these changes," he said. And then he heard that he was becoming a problem.
"Noah said that Joy Villa made a report on me and that I am trying to be a Trojan horse to destroy the Church," he said.
Joy Villa was also an aspiring performer who had worked her way through Scientology for a number of years. At one point, she introduced herself to Cuba at the Celebrity Center and took a selfie with him.

He later said he met with Joy and her publicist, and Cuba suggested that she go to Washington, D.C. should go and try to meet the new president to expand the reach of Scientology. ("I don't really support Trump. I just mean we should try to meet with him because he's the president. I don't support anyone. I just support the United Nations and Queen Elizabeth," added Cuba with a laugh.)
“I had told her and her publicist that Scientology was too behind closed doors. Let's show the love and bring in the media, let's bring in Leah Remini. And after I told them this, Joy and her publicist said they couldn't be around me because I was too controversial and talking about reaching Trump. Then she turned around and supported Trump! "
Cuba believed his suggestion was the seed that motivated Joy to wear a "Make America Great Again" dress at the 2017 Grammy Awards, which instantly made her famous among Trump supporters. She turned it into several trips to the White House, an exploratory look at the candidacy for Congress, and she continues to work on her fame with conservatives in the book and speaking industry. (She didn't answer when I tried to ask her about Cuba's claim that he suggested supporting Trump in order to benefit Scientology.)
As the party drew near in March 2017, Cuba and Joy spoke about writing a song together that would benefit human rights, he said. And for the charity ball itself, Cuba had spoken to Joy about performing one of the songs on his new album with him.
But then he learned from Bolduc that she had submitted a "knowledge report" about him. "Joy opened our eyes to who you are, they said."
“They put him through a polygraph test. It was horrible, ”Vikki claimed.
After months of planning, the Scientologists shocked them by saying that such events were not taking place at the Celebrity Center and it was canceled.
“Could this organization really have no compassion?” Cuba asked me. Both he and Vikki said they had been followed for the past few days - Cuba recognized his stalker, whom he saw working security at the Celebrity Center. They asked us what Scientology was capable of. Were you in danger?
Shortly after our conversation, Kuba Ka was briefly hospitalized because of nervous exhaustion. The Scientology episode had left him an emotional wreck.
Then I heard from his cousin Patrick, who was emailing the family "empire", that the name Kuba Ka was retired and that we should now refer to it as Amen Ra.
Amen Ra

Stepniak had traded one pantheon for another.
Tina Trozzo says the pandemic hit her son particularly hard. His career, which included working with musicians and performing at public events, came to a standstill like many other people.
But the pandemic had arrived in her life just a few months after another shock: the death of Cuba's father Andrzej of a heart attack on December 19, 2019 at the age of 67.
Cuba, an only child, was particularly close to his parents, and Andrzej featured frequently in his videos. His sudden death was an unexpected blow.
As the pandemic dragged on through 2020, Cuba, now redesigned Amen Ra, focused on a new album that would bring him once and for all the success he longed for. He called it Creation and put together several different teaser videos that were posted on his YouTube channel in June.
Then the contributions to the channel were stopped. And on October 17th, says Tina, the disease arrived.
Something was wrong with Cuba's skin - especially his face, but also his arms, legs and torso.
It scared and confused them, Tina and Uncle Danny tell me, and the doctors didn't seem able to figure out what caused it.
Cuba's face, which had been his trademark next to his washboard stomach, suddenly erupted in open, bleeding wounds.
After years of trading his looks (and complaining that it was all Hollywood cared about), Cuba's beauty was suddenly attacked by a terrible, mysterious disease.
Wounds opened on other wounds until Cuba's cheeks turned into a large black mass of scabs, blood, and pus. Similar vacancies appeared on the arms and legs.
Uncle Danny, who lived in his apartment on Olive Street in downtown L.A., near Cuba, said that not only was his skin damaged, but he was also suffering from persistent infection and inflammation. Cuba was bleeding and in severe pain when his doctors tried to find out what was going on.
“He did five different biopsies and no diagnosis. But he was bleeding profusely and discharge was coming from his face and body, ”says Uncle Danny.
“Uncle”, I learned, was an honor. Maghen had met the family in 2011 and quickly became very close.
“He thanked me and his mother all along for helping him. I spent five and a half months in his apartment. He was the nicest person I had ever known. I never heard him use any bad words, ”says Danny. “Tina was in Europe. His friends were gone. I drove him to the doctor and took care of him. He was always very nice to me. COVID was terrible around us then. He was alone. "
Then, in February, Cuba made another video.
He called it "Face Jihad," and even after a little over a minute, it's extremely difficult to see. It shows blood spurting from his face, his huge crusts and pools of blood on the tiles at his feet.
WARNING: Incredibly graphic footage
In the video, Cuba claims to be a victim of a neglected tropical disease and is making a documentary about it. Uncle Danny, who also attributed the diagnosis of NTD, told me that they believed Cuba went to Africa as a teenager to produce charity shows and that he must have been infected with a parasite there.
Cuba then presses her nose with her fingers and a torrent of blood splatters the camera lens. But it was parasites that caused it, his family believes.
It certainly seemed strangely fitting into the mythology of Kuba Ka. In Hollywood he had hunted immortality as the god of entertainment with his beauty and talent, but there was always something from there, whether in Poland or in this new version in Africa, that stole what was his due.
Tina described her son's ordeal and then told me something that scared me, and Uncle Danny confirmed it. Both said Cuba was furious when its attending GP revealed his diagnosis: insanity.
The family refuses to believe it, claiming that Cuba must have suffered from a tropical disease that he contracted in Africa.
But the terrible truth was all too obvious given his doctor's diagnosis.
Kuba Ka put an end to his arduous pursuit of fame for good by tearing his own face apart.
When spring came, Cuba lost its battle to the thing that devoured its skin.
“He got very weak. In his last days he could no longer walk. He was in tremendous pain. The inflammation was all over his body, ”says Cuba's mother Tina Trozzo.
“He tried to be a fighter until the end of his life. He was preparing to fly to Mass General Hospital in Boston, ”she adds.
Her husband had worked as a visiting professor there for a few years before his death, and she still had connections there. Cuba was scheduled to fly on Sunday April 25th.
“He wanted to live and be safe. Cuba fought for its life with real power. He had big plans for his life, ”explains Danny.

Cuba's family continues to insist that his doctors never properly diagnosed his skin problem and that their drugs killed him.
This second claim is certainly true. Tina gave me not only Cuba's detailed autopsy report, but also the last pain reliever prescription he had received on April 22nd, the day before his death.
The autopsy revealed that Jakub Stepniak, who was actually 35 years old (not 23 (according to his E! Network claim) or 30 (based on what he told me in 2017), had died of "methadone toxicity" . There was no evidence of a parasite or other neglected tropical disease.
He had simply overdosed on an overdose of pain medication, which the coroner identified as an accident.
I sent both documents to Andrew Kolodny, a national expert on the opioid crisis and the medical director of Opioid Policy Research at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University.
(The recipe stated Cuba's age at 41, but his mother Tina assures me that this is a mistake and that he was born in 1986, not 1980.)
Kolodny examined the prescription and explained to me that Stepniak had been given methadone as well as another strong opioid for pain, a combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen, commonly known as "Norco".
I described what the family had told me about the doctor's diagnosis, and Kolodny said that "neurotic excoriation" is not an uncommon condition, especially for drug addicts who pecked at their skin. (However, as far as I knew, Cuba had never been a drug addict or drinker.)
As for the dose of the pain relievers, he said they were surprisingly strong.
"Unless he was someone very tolerant of opioids, those are very high doses," he says. "Opioids are not good drugs for chronic pain."
In the era of overprescribing opioids, it was a perfectly normal death - a 41-year-old was taking too much pain medication that had been legally administered to him.
Kuba Ka, the god of pop, was a mortal.
Tina Trozzo held a funeral for her son at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills on May 13.
Seitdem postet sie auf ihrem Facebook-Account weiterhin Bilder ihres 2019 verstorbenen Mannes Andrzej und ihres Sohnes Jakub aus den verschiedenen Stationen seiner Karriere, von der jungen polnischen Wohltätigkeitsorganisation bis hin zu Kuba Ka, dem Gott des Pop, zu seiner letzten Manifestation, Amen Ra.
„Für immer lebendig in meinem Herzen“, sagt sie über die beiden.

Als ich letzte Woche Borys Kossakowski anrief, sagte er, dass er Kubas Geschichte über die Frau des polnischen Präsidenten, die angeblich seine posttraumatische Belastungsstörung verursacht, nicht glaubte. „Es ist schwer zu glauben, dass sie tatsächlich eine Feindin für ihn sein oder sich so verhalten könnte. Aber wer weiß, was passiert ist. Und wer weiß, was mit dem Geld passiert ist“, erinnert er sich an die Benefizveranstaltungen in Polen, die Kuba kurzzeitig berühmt gemacht haben.
„Die Leute dort begannen zu erkennen, dass es nicht um die Wohltätigkeitsarbeit ging, sondern um die Schaffung der Persönlichkeit von Kuba Stepniak“, sagt er. „Mein Gefühl war, dass er sehr narzisstisch war, sehr auf sich selbst konzentriert. Und er betrachtete jede Art von Kritik als offenen Akt der Aggression gegen ihn. Es war er gegen die Welt. Du könntest sein Gefolgsmann oder sein Feind sein. Dazwischen war nichts.“
Aber er fügte hinzu, dass Stepniak in Polen wirklich sehr bekannt sei. Er war dort als sehr junger Mann ein großer Star geworden.
Kossakowski sagt, er sei sich nicht sicher, warum Kuba beschlossen hat, ihm das Interview 2015 zu gewähren. Er war der erste polnische Journalist, mit dem Kuba nach seinem Umzug in die USA sprach: „Er sagte, wie schlecht er behandelt worden sei, wie die Journalisten in Polen ihn hassten. Aber das war nicht realistisch.“
In einem Video, das er letztes Jahr gemacht hat, um die Black Lives Matter-Bewegung zu loben, sagte Kuba, dass die Kämpfe der BLM ihn an seine eigenen in Polen erinnerten, und er ließ kurz eine Beschreibung eines kriminellen Vorfalls auf den Bildschirm blitzen.
Kossakowski sagte, es handele sich um einen Überfall. Kuba war 2001 von drei Männern angegriffen worden, die ihn verprügelt hatten. In dem Video sagt Kuba, dass dies die Quelle seiner PTSD ist, nicht der Vorfall mit der Frau des Präsidenten.
Wie auch immer, Kossakowski glaubt, dass Kubas Mythenbildung über das, was sein Leben in Polen zerstört hatte, eine Geschichte war, um seine wahren Kämpfe in den USA zu vertuschen.
„Ich glaube, er ist ein Opfer dieses Amerikaners, der denkt, dass man sein kann, wer man will. Er hat das wirklich bis an die Grenze getrieben. Er wollte wirklich der Gott des Pop sein, und er wollte keinen Kontakt zur Realität haben.“
