Abby Lee Miller Gets Served
In the clip, Miller is outraged about getting served by an officer of the clerk while at her dance studio. “I just had an officer at the clerk serve me papers in my business,” she complains. “Nobody is going to talk to me that way. No one!”
Back in October, it was revealed that Miller is being sued for assault by former student and Dance Moms castmember, Paige Hyland. The lawsuit alleges that Miller was verbally and physically abusive towards Paige and once threw a chair at her in a moment of aggression. As a result of Miller’s antics, the suit states Paige suffered “emotional distress, anxiety, frustration, anger, humiliation, post traumatic stress and anguish.”
In the lawsuit, Paige’s mother Kelly Hyland, who also appeared on Dance Moms, claims that Miller’s theatrics were a ploy for ratings. “All of this was a part of a deliberate scheme by the producers to generate interest in the television show and strong ratings when each episode airs,” read the complaint.
The Hylands’ lawsuit also places considerable blame on Lifetime, claiming that the network paid Miller “to be abusive and bullying to her students and provoke arguments with the mothers in front of the children.”
Hyland is suing for general and punitive damages, court costs and an injunction against Miller.
Dance Moms’ season five premiere will air on Lifetime Jan. 6 at 9/8c.
