Abby Lee Miller is nothing if not a controversial figure. And while there have been Dance Moms rumors about the show being cancelled before — especially in the face of Miller’s pending Federal fraud sentence — it looks like the show is finally going off the air for good. Apparently, Abby Lee Miller feels manipulated and used, and she doesn’t want to come back to the show. And, the feeling is mutual amongst the show’s participants — they don’t want her back, either. So, it looks like the show is finally cancelled for good — but whose side of the story is the real one?

That’s the word according to Radar Online, whose latest round of Dance Moms rumors suggests that she feels she was manipulated, used, and abused while she was on the show. She released a statement saying that she was “proud” that she went against the producers of the show, and that she doesn’t feel she owes anyone an explanation as to why she makes the decisions that she makes when it comes to “her girls.”
“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!”

And the fallout from Abby Lee Miller quitting has reached throughout the dance studio, because the latest Dance Moms rumors from Christian Today suggests that the dancers, upon hearing that Abby Lee Miller quit the show and the ALDC, have defected to other studios.
Even the news that Abby Lee Miller may not be leaving after all wasn’t enough to convince the dancers to stay or to try to build their future with the dance company — they have moved on, it seems.
“On Instagram, dance mom Holly Frazier shared a photo of Camryn Bridges, Kalani Hilliker, Nia Sioux, and Kendall Vertes at the 8 Count Dance Academy. She captioned the photo, “An end of an era, the beginning of our future.”
