Fan-favorite ALDC dancer, Chloe Lukasiak, may soon be parting ways with the Lifetime's hit reality-TV series “Dance Moms.” Following rumors that the 13-year-old performer had quit Abby Lee Miller’s Pittsburgh studio’s elite competition team, a preview for part two of the show’s Season 4 finale hints this might her final season.
“Chloe, your routine is a hot mess right now,” Miller says to her student during rehearsals for her contemporary solo “Soarin” ahead of the team's appearance at nationals in a preview for next Tuesday's finale, a comment which appears to severely rattle the longtime "Dance Moms" star. “I can’t make you want to dance,” Chloe’s mom, Christi Lukasiak, can be heard telling the sullen teen as her teammate, Kendall Vertes, 11, looks on in a scene from “Here We Come Hollywood, Part 2.”
In typical Miller fashion, the preview shows the ALDC coach also verbally lashing out at Chloe’s mother, telling the dance mom of her daughter, “Nobody would know her name if is wasn’t for me!” Christi rebuffs the tyrannical coach’s claims, stating that it was her daughter and her teammates, Nia Frazier, 13, Maddie Ziegler, 11, and Mackenzie Ziegler, 10, who made Miller famous. “Those five kids put your fat name on the map!” she says.
Despite being present for four seasons' worth of drama between Miller and her mother, the duo’s latest spat appears to have finally cracked Chloe, who can be heard sobbing while telling her mother she is over enduring Miller’s antics. “I don’t want to deal with her anymore,” Chloe says before reaching to hug her mother. The tearful confession is followed by a shot of the mother-daughter duo walking out of the Los Angeles-based competition. “I can’t sit by and watch this woman destroy my child anymore,” Christi says.
Lukasiak last hinted at her daughter’s removal from Miller’s studio in August, posting this message to Twitter:
Definition of insanity: doing the same thing over & over and expecting different results. Time to stop the madness.

While Lifetime isn’t spoiling Chloe’s fate with the ALDC just yet, their tagline for the episode is telling. “This could be 'her' last dance,” reads the network’s preview. Part two of the “Dance Moms” Season 4 finale airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. EDT on Lifetime.
