Jennifer Lopez was among the thousands of people watching the "Dancing With the Stars" season 17 premiere on Monday night.

However, Lopez was watching from the live studio's audience where the singer displayed her support for "best friend" Leah Remini.

In July, Remini announced her decision to leave the Church of Scientology, later admitting that the decision cost her several friends.

Fortunately, Lopez is standing by "The King of Queens" star, and even cheered for Remini from the audience at "DWTS" on Monday, according to the Daily Mail.

The season premiere saw Remini take to the ballroom for the first time with professional dance partner Tony Dovolani. They scored 21 points for their foxtrot.

Meanwhile, the actress' departure from the Scientology cult after belonging for over 30 years was rooted in their policies.

"I lost friends," Remini admitted after leaving the church while on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

However, she added she is doing "okay," and the actress' sister revealed one remaining friend- Jennifer Lopez.

"They're best friends, and they're fine … None of her Scientology friends are sticking by her side," explained Nicole Remini Winslow to People magazine.

"I guess you really learn who your friends are," she added of the ordeal.

Back in July, Remini released a statement about her departure from Scientoloy.

"I wish to share my sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the overwhelming positive response I have received from the media, colleagues, and from fans around the world," she said.

Her reasons for leaving were unclear, but Page Six at the New York Post reported that they were based in the cult's years of "interrogations" and "thought modification."

Alternately, the Church of Scientology has stated to the media that it will not comment on the departure of any one member.
