Abby Lee Miller has announced that she is stepping away from Lifetime series, Dance Moms — and the controversial dance diva is going out with a bang!
Miller slammed production in a scathing farewell Instagram post — and her followers could almost hear her bellow in the MOSTLY CAPS rant!
“The majority of children that follow me may be fast asleep, however now is the critical time to make the following statement: I WILL NO LONGER TAKE PART IN DANCE MOMS. FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS/ SEVEN SEASONS I HAVE ASKED, BEGGED, AND EVEN DEMANDED CREATIVE CREDIT FOR ALL THE IDEAS, AWARD WINNING ROUTINES, THEMES, AND COSTUMING – TO NO AVAIL!”
Miller, 50, revealed that she did buck production direction along the way—blasting the network for what she perceived as manipulation and disrespect.
“TODAY, I WAS SO PROUD THAT I WENT AGAINST THE PRODUCER’S IDEA (ONCE AGAIN) TO ENTER A COMMAND PERFORMANCE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE NUMBERS… “WHERE HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GONE?” ALONG WITH THREE BEAUTIFUL SOLOS! I don’t have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people’s children successful! 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 AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT!”
Miller’s tirade comes in the wake of reality mom, Holly Frazier’s nod to a new beginning for Jr. Elite competition team — Nia Sioux, Kendall Vertes, Kalani Hilliker and Cameron Bridges — along with comeback alum, Chloe Lukasiak.
“An end of an era, the beginning of our future….” Holly captioned a group photo — giving a nod to Los Angeles studio, 8 Count Dance Academy.
Miller is set to be sentenced in early May, after pleading guilty for concealing international monetary transactions and concealing bankruptcy assets. Miller could ultimately face up to 30 months in prison.
