It seems like ALDC coach and Dance Moms Season 6 star Abby Lee Miller has not gotten over Chloe Lukasiak leaving both her studio and the hit Lifetime series. On last Tuesday’s reunion special, JoJo Siwa’s mom, Jessalynn, claimed that the coach missed a few episodes, as she was upset after finding out that Lukasiak is doing well without her help.
According to the International Business Times, Abby Lee Miller was “largely affected” by Chloe Lukasiak’s blossoming career after she left Dance Moms. Jessalynn claimed that Abby took a few days off filming after she found out that Chloe was cast in Lifetime’s TV movie, Center Stage: On Pointe. At first, the ALDC coach tried to deny the accusations, insisting that she had no idea what she was doing on the days she was not around.
JoJo’s mom, however, insisted that Abby was bent out of shape because of Chloe.
“I think that was the week that you found out that Chloe, the little girl that left the team when we came, booked a movie. I think that is what sent you over the edge.”
Surprised that Siwa brought Lukasiak up, Miller tried to warn her, explaining that she is not allowed to talk about Chloe and Christi after they left Dance Moms.
“You’re not supposed to talk about that because I’m not allowed to talk about her,” she told JoJo’s mom.
Siwa, however, does not seem at all fazed by Miller. She pointed out that the Dance Moms Season 6 producers did not say anything about speaking about the former ALDC member. Could Miller be making up the rule that she cannot talk about Chloe and Christi?
Meanwhile, some of the moms do not think that Chloe’s success is the sole reason why Abby decided to miss a few episodes of Dance Moms Season 6. The publication reported that Melissa Gisoni, Jill Vertes, and Holly Frazier were unaware that Abby is still harboring ill feelings towards Chloe and Christi Lukasiak.
“All I know is Abby didn’t show up for work,” Holly said.
Chloe and Christi Lukasiak left Dance Moms following the Season 4 finale in October 2014. While there were several speculations as to why the mother and daughter left the Lifetime series, the last straw was Abby allegedly making fun Chloe’s “lazy eye.” On her now-deleted Tumblr post, Jo Anne Morales, mom to dancers McKenzie and Gavin Morales, claimed that Abby bullied Chloe non-stop with her eye and asked her to get it fixed.
“We were all so upset for Chloe and her mom! Chloe is the sweetest girl! She has a big heart [and] is always kind and respectful to me and my kids!”
Abby Lee Miller’s alleged rude comment towards Chloe Lukasiak never made it on air. Her mom, Christi, speculated that the Dance Moms producers decided to edit it out to protect her.
When she won the 2015 Teen Choice Award for Choice Dancer last August, Chloe threw a subtle shade towards Abby’s way, which many Dance Moms fans caught right away.
“To anyone who has ever been told that they can’t do it, they shouldn’t do it, or they aren’t good enough, ignore it. Do it anyways and prove them wrong,” she said.
While Chloe has not participated in as many dance competitions as before, the Dance Moms alum’s fan base seems to grow each day. She recently hit one million subscribers on her YouTube channel. Chloe also recently landed a role in the military drama Cowgirl’s Story.
