After three seasons of Abby Lee Miller feuding with “Dance Moms” star mom Kelly Hyland, their longtime feud reportedly came to head recently, resulting in a cat-fight and subsequent arrest of the popular reality mom.
TMZ was the first to report Thursday that Hyland, mother to Abby Lee Dance Company elite competition dancers and fellow reality stars Brooke Hyland, 15, and Paige Hyland, 13, was arrested in November in New York following a scuffle with the infamous teacher. Reportedly, the 42-year-old dance mom was booked for “assault and harassment" but not officially charged with the crimes.
“Here's what we're told. ... Abby was searching for new talent, and Kelly was getting pissed off that her kids were being overlooked. When Abby dared to bring a potential pint-sized star by the studio, our sources say Kelly freaked out,” reads the gossip site's report.
According to source, the duo’s fight resulted in an arrest after Hyland screamed and pulled Miller’s hair. The assault was reportedly caught on video, but there is no indication as to when, or if, the alleged altercation will air on Lifetime’s hit series, “Dance Moms.” While there has yet to be any confirmed video footage of the attack, the show’s season four trailer does show Hyland attacking Miller in a fashion described in TMZ’s report.
As of Thursday afternoon, Hyland had yet to comment on the rumored reports on her official Twitter account, only sharing details of her daughters' meet-and-greet in Toronto on Jan. 25.
This isn’t the first time Hyland has lashed out against the tyrannical teacher. In July, an amateur video of was captured showing Hyland verbally attacking Miller while prepping for their annual dance concert in Pittsburgh, the home of the Abby Lee Dance Company.
“Dance Moms” premiered on Lifetime in July 2011. The series’ fourth season premiered on Jan. 1.
