Before she does her time in prison in the months to come, Dance Moms alum Abby Lee Miller has been active in social media and has been making appearances on television.
One of her latest social media escapades involves her former Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC) student Maddie Ziegler. Miller posted a throwback photo taken from the day she said she introduced the Dance Moms fan-favorite to her would-be boyfriend, Jack Kelly.
In the caption for the photo, which showed a younger Maddie and Jack along with Dance Moms star Kendall Vertes among others, Abby Lee Miller said that she saw the romance coming before it even happened and before the two lovebirds even realized it.
“Came across some old pics! This was the beginning… Two Too Cute! Who would’ve [thought] it? Lol! Me!”
Maddie and Jack have been declaring their love for each other via their social media by posting a bunch of pictures of them together and sharing sweet messages. It was around early this year that the two hinted at their relationship, but did not make it official until a few months later.
Based on the post, it turns out that Abby Lee Miller had a hand in making the romance happen and the Dance Moms star believes that she may have played Cupid for them.
Some found the photo cute as it gave a glimpse of the past knowing what will happen years down the line. However, a lot of fans were also shocked by Abby Lee Miller’s post.
Others accused her of “taking credit for everything,” even the littlest ones such as Maddie Ziegler’s relationship that they deem she should leave alone. Others urged her to just “move on.”
It also came as a bigger surprise especially since there are rumors going around that Abby Lee Miller and Maddie Ziegler are not in good terms after the former did not get any mention in the latter’s newly released book, The Maddie Diaries.
Maddie Ziegler was the purported favorite student of Abby Lee Miller back when she was in Dance Moms. The dance coach’s post on Twitter about a new “favorite student” named Mackenzie Sol was understood by fans as a retort to the snub.
In an interview with People, Maddie talked about what it was like to work with Abby Lee Miller on Dance Moms, suggesting that it was not always easy.
“I learned a lot of lessons. I had the craziest time when I was with her and on that team. I’m really glad that I did move on from that, and I did learn a lot from her and we did have some fun times. But I feel like now, I’ve never been happier in my life.”
Maddie is yet to comment on Abby Lee Miller’s Instagram post, and so does her boyfriend, but the comment section has already blown up as fans debated, some defending the dance instructor and others criticizing her and accusing her of taking credit for something she has nothing to do with.
As Dance Moms fans know, Abby Lee Miller was recently sentenced to one year in prison for bankruptcy fraud. The reality star is required to report to prison in five weeks.
She has expressed her fears about being sent behind bars, but Abby Lee Miller already has something to look forward to when she gets out. The Dance Moms star revealed to E! News that she will do a new show.
“Someone’s already called me to be there to start saying shoot. We’re ready with cameras. We’re ready to go.”
Before heading to prison, Abby Lee Miller has been pampering herself. She has been watching Broadway shows, traveling, and talking about her trying time in television shows.
