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!
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?
