‘Dance Moms’ Update: Abby Lee Miller Quits, Claims To Be Disrespected By Showrunners
Abby Lee Miller recently announced her resignation to "Dance Moms." In her Instagram, she dance instructor blames showrunners for disrespecting, manipulating and using her.
Last Sunday, Miller posted on Instagram in all caps that she will no longer take part in "Dance Moms." She wrote that in the last six years, or seven seasons, she has continuously asked, begged and demanded creative credit for all the ideas, routines that won awards and for themes and costumes. However, her pleas seem to have fallen on deaf ears.
Miller continued to write that she is proud that she has gone against the idea of the producer once again. She has entered a command performance of one of her favorite numbers titled "Where Have All The Children Gone?" along with three beautiful solos in "Dance Moms."
Miller said that she does not have a problem working with any of the children in "Dance Moms." She, in fact, loves kids and has dedicated her life to making them successful. However, her problem is the way she has been treated. "I just have a problem with being manipulated, disrespected, and used, day in and day out by men who never took a dance lesson in their lives," she continued to write in her Instagram post. She also added that they treat women like dirt.
Lifetime has not yet issued an official statement about Miller's announcement about her resignation in "Dance Moms." This news comes in the midst of a bankruptcy fraud case filed against the dance coach.
In October 2015, Miller was charged to have attempted to hide $775,000 in secret bank accounts from 2012 to 2013. According to US Magazine, the money involved was reported to be income from various talent fees and projects from "Dance Mom" and "Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition." She was also accused of putting money worth $120,000 in plastic bags and asking her friends to hide them in their luggage.
