JoJo Siwa Slams Former Dance Moms Co-Star Brooke Hyland For Shading Abby Lee Miller!

JoJo Siwa isn’t going to tolerate any Abby Lee Miller slander!

The 17-year-old Dance Moms alum is speaking out following her former co-star Brooke Hyland‘s since-deleted TikTok video, where she threw shade at their former instructor and made it clear there’s no love lost between them these days…

In the clip, which can be viewed (below), Hyland tells her followers she has “a new friend suggestion” on Facebook before zooming in to show Miller’s name — and then the camera cuts to her face cringing with disgust!

Yikes!

Fans of the show will recall the 53-year-old reality TV titan was known for being quite hard on her dancers and pushing them to their limits with her no-nonsense attitude. The 22-year-old and her sister Paige severed ties with the competitive dance studio and the series altogether after their mom Kelly Hyland got into a physical altercation with Abby Lee. The 2014 incident led to a string of nasty lawsuits against Miller for emotional distress, breach of contract, defamation, and assault, which was eventually settled in 2015. But yeah… the animosity here is still alive and well!

Despite what happened and Miller’s polarizing reputation, Siwa stepped up to bat for her, commenting in response to the shady clip:

“It’s one thing to just not add her back. It’s another to post it…”

No surprise here — the teen who’s all about glitter, happiness, and fun wants us to lead with kindness!

In a recent interview with Us Weekly, JoJo opened up about her ongoing relationship with Abby Lee and said its “really sad that a lot of the people don’t talk to her anymore.”

“The same thing with a lot of the producers from Dance Moms. It’s just sad because Abby really is a good person. Even though you see her yelling and screaming at children on TV, like Abby made seven stars. I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for her. Maddie and Mackenzie wouldn’t be where they are today without Abby.”

She continued to advocate for the controversial instructor, adding:

“She’s gone through it in these last years, and she doesn’t have that many people. It’s just sad. I try to be there for everybody, you know? There’s enough love!”

It might be easy for JoJo to say given the clear difference in her relationship to Abby Lee but do U think she has a point here, Perezcious readers?? Or, is Brooke totally within her right to throw some arguably deserved shade at the woman who messed with her family?

Sound OFF (below) in the comments!

The REAL Story Behind That Ugly Fight Between Kim & Kourtney Kardashian On KUWTK!

This was one of the craziest spats we’ve ever seen on Keeping Up With The Kardashians!

In case you hadn’t been anticipating it like we have, last night brought us the season 18 premiere of the long-standing E! reality TV show — and with it came one of the more controversial (and physically violent) moments in the history of the series!

The drama went down between Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West, sisters at odds (as always) over work ethic, and who puts more time in to help run the family businesses. Only this time, as KKW called out her older sis for her supposed laziness, Kourt didn’t take it sitting down. No, like, she literally got in Kim’s face and got physical! Oh, boy!!!

The whole thing started when Kourt got double-booked, agreeing to shoot for KUWTK on the same day as a home-tour shoot with Architectural Digest. Overwhelmed by the scheduling, at one point, the Poosh founder let out her frustrations in front of little sis Khloé Kardashian, saying that she was sick of getting made up for the camera and adding:

“I’m being torn in a lot of different directions. And, after being off for a month, it just gives me anxiety knowing that I’m going to be having no real privacy. There’s probably going to be 40 people in my house today … and I’m f**king over glam. I honestly don’t want to film like, ever again.”

Uh-oh.

That declaration sent Khlo off into her own sour mood; after all, as the Good American founder herself noted, Kourtney had the option to leave completely after a rocky end to season 17, but she chose to come back for another year. And since she came back…

The sisters snapped at each other through much of the episode, until Kim and Khloé eventually choose to once again confront the 40-year-old mom of three over her “negativity” and “vibes.” Kourt wasn’t having it, begging the pair to move on, but they wouldn’t; eventually, the whole thing pushed the oldest sister past her breaking point and she lashed out in a confessional about being ganged up on once again:

“Why can’t we just move on? For years, it used to be Khloé and I against Kim. And for the last, maybe, three years, it’s just been such a different dynamic where it’s Kim and Khloé against me.”

The tension came to a head at the very end, though, when the three sisters got together and tried to hash out their differences. With younger sis Kendall Jenner in attendance, Kim brought up the fact that the leggy supermodel had recently been unable to walk in a fashion show due to sickness — and pointed out that unlike Kenny, she would never miss an event due to being sick.

That set Kendall off, and in turn, Kourt got offended when Kim called her out during the mini-tirade. With tensions quickly rising, Kourtney warned Kim once, saying:

“You act like I don’t do s**t! You have this narrative in your mind. I will literally f**k you up if you mention it again. But, honestly, change the narrative in your mind. I work my f**king ass off. I will literally f**k you up!”

And from there… it was on. FIGHT!!!!

Khloé did her best to diffuse the situation as Kendall looked on, shocked, but there was no stopping Kim and Kourtney as they exchanged scratches, several slaps, and at least one closed-fist punch.

Ch-ch-check out the entire fight clip at the very end of this short recap video from last night (below):

Wow.

Wild! Absolutely wild!

Gotta hand it to these girls… purposely or not, they kicked off season 18 in style!!!

Kesha Refuses To Pay Dr. Luke Court Ordered $374,000 & Files A New Appeal In Defamation Suit

Kesha is not backing down and more than ready to continue fighting her legal battle against Dr. Luke.

Despite being ordered to pay a sum of $374,000 to the music producer as part of a broader ruling against her in court for defamation, the Tik Tok singer is reportedly refusing to pay up! According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kesha is adamant about changing the judge’s decision in favor of the producer, real name Lukasz Gottwald, and has officially filed an appeal.

In the docs, she is specifically asking the higher court to look at their case and reverse the lower court’s order. The latter is referring to when Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Jennifer Schecter had previously ruled the 33-year-old singer defamed Gottwald by sending that infamous 2016 text message to Lady GaGa, in which she asserted he had raped fellow singer Katy Perry.

At the time, Judge Schecter ruled against Kesha, writing in summary (below):

“ Kesha made a false statement to Lady Gaga about Gottwald that was defamatory per se. There is no evidence whatsoever that raped Katy Perry. Moreover, publication of a false statement to even one person, here Lady Gaga, is sufficient to impose liability.”

In the newly submitted docs for her appeal, Kesha is seeking a “reversal of the Order granting in part Plaintiffs’ Motion for partial summary judgment because Plaintiffs are not entitled to judgment as a matter of law (i) that Kesha is liable for allegedly defamatory statements. Made by Mark Geragos and Sunshine Sachs, (ii) that Kesha made a false statement to Lady Gaga that constitutes a defamatory publication per se.”

It’ll be an uphill battle fighting the 46-year-old producer’s legal team who previously told ET in a statement they were hell-bent on getting justice for their client:

“Dr. Luke is pursuing this lawsuit to seek recovery for the serious harm Kesha’s false accusations of rape have caused Dr. Luke, his family and his business. Today’s important decision by the Court in Dr. Luke’s lawsuit brings him closer to the justice that he seeks. First, the Court has now ruled that Kesha made a false and defamatory accusation about Dr. Luke when she baselessly claimed that he raped Katy Perry. Second, the Court rejected Kesha’s attempts to invoke legal technicalities to avoid responsibility for her statements. And third, the Court also correctly held that Kesha breached her contract with Dr. Luke’s company. Dr. Luke looks forward to the trial of his case where he will prove that Kesha’s other false statements about him were equally false and defamatory.”

It’s hard to tell if the court will ultimately reverse their decision in Kesha’s favor, considering she has already suffered more than few legal setbacks. In addition to the defamation suit, there’s also the matter of the star’s allegations that her former producer had sexually assaulted her. Even with the help of an emotional deposition from GaGa in court, in which the singer said she believed Kesha, Dr. Luke’s lawyers called B.S. and insist on clearing his alleged good name.

Like we said, this is far from over. We’ll continue to update you as this story develops.

Lizzie McGuire Creator Breaks Silence About Being Fired After Hilary Duff Throws Shade At Disney!

Are we still even getting a Lizzie McGuire reboot? If so it won’t be the one Hilary Duff wanted to give us!

In January we found out Disney+ had fired showrunner Terri Minsky after only two episodes had been filmed. And yes, we noticed that was just weeks after we learned the show would feature an openly gay character…

Disney said in a statement at the time:

“Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series. After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the series.”

Reading between the lines? Seems like they’re saying the show wasn’t good enough. For showbiz speak that was remarkably unsubtle.

But was it really the quality that was bothering the company? Or the LGBTQ content??

When word came out this week that LGBT-centric YA show Love, Victor would be moving from Disney+ to Hulu because it wasn’t “family-friendly” enough, Hilary reposted the news to her Instagram Story along with the eye-rolling comment:

“sounds familiar…”

After that apparent jab at the white-gloved hand that feeds, Variety could smell the bad blood in the water. The outlet reached out to everyone involved to get a better idea of what was really going on behind the scenes. Minsky told them:

“I am so proud of the two episodes we did. Hilary has a grasp of Lizzie McGuire at 30 that needs to be seen. It’s a wonderful thing to watch. I would love the show to exist, but ideally I would love it if it could be given that treatment of going to Hulu and doing the show that we were doing. That’s the part where I am completely in the dark. It’s important to me that this show was important to people. I felt like I wanted to do a show that was worthy of that kind of devotion.”

Going to Hulu with the brave version of the show sounds good to us!

Hilary wouldn’t comment, but insiders told Variety she and Minsky were 100% on the same page with what the reboot would entail — a more “adult” version of Lizzie, something they pitched and Disney originally accepted. But Disney later decided they wanted something more like the original show, not something for viewers of the original, who have all grown up just as the star has. According to sources the star is furious with the Mouse over axing her collaborator.

Yeah, we got that from the IG Story, LOLz…

But what exactly wasn’t “family-friendly” about the new show? According to sources, executives were on set and aware of the show’s content. Is it really they were squeamish about adult material, like Lizzie’s sex life?

Or was it actually the backlash they got from conservatives about the gay character? We all know “family-friendly” is often used in Hollywood as code for GAY-FREE CONTENT.

Disney obviously wasn’t about admit to kowtowing to homophobia but they did release a new, softer statement in an attempt to reassure fans they were looking for a new showrunner and NOT cancelling the show:

“We paused production on Lizzie McGuire a few weeks ago to allow time for some creative redevelopment. Our goal is to resume production and to tell an authentic story that connects to the millions who are emotionally invested in the character, and a new generation of viewers too.”

Will Hilary be down with that? Will fans??

Because we have to tell Disney+, while their star may be contractually obligated to appear even if the show is sanitized with GayAway, viewers are not obligated to watch it.

Are YOU still excited for the Lizzie reboot??
