Dance Moms' Abby Lee Miller Came at Me Like a BEAST, Kelly Hyland Says in Lawsuit

by at . Comments

Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms fame is a mammoth, vicious, crazed bully who came at one of her co-stars like a rabid dog, according to a new lawsuit.

Kelly Hyland wants $5 million as a result of the fight the two got into last month during a rehearsal in NYC. It got ugly, even by Dance Moms' low standards.

Hyland claims she was upset with Abby for yelling at her two daughters, only to watch Abby jump in front of her and begin yelling and lunging wildly.

What Kelly describes next is either hilarious or scary, depending on how you look at it. She says Abby was "gnashing her teeth loudly attempting to bite [me]."

Miller, she says, presumably in an effort to make the point that she was in danger, "is a very large woman" who likely "weighs around 300 pounds or so."

As part of the legal filing, Kelly Hyland admits that she slapped Abby Lee Miller and pulled her head away during the fracas, but only in self-defense.

The footage shown on Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 7 this week backs her up for the most part, but she says producers drove her away from the scene.

Handlers put her on a plane, she believes, knowing police would issue a warrant for her arrest for not cooperating, and therefore creating a hot storyline.

Producers using tension for ratings and story manipulation? Shocking.

Hyland is suing Abby Lee Miller and the producers, alleging assault, defamation, and breach of contract, claiming she hasn't been paid since the fight went down.

She also wants $5 million in punitive damages as a result of all this.

Hyland may be reaching there, but Miller is definitely a beast in the dance studio. Just watch Dance Moms online and you'll see it every week, fights or no fights.
