‘Dance Moms’ Fight: Kelly Hyland Arrested, Allegedly Attacked Abby Lee Miller
Kelly Hyland allegedly snapped at Dance Moms most outspoken choreographer, Abby Lee Miller of Abby Lee Dance Company, but it wasn’t just a typical studio tiff!
“Abby was searching for new talent and Kelly was getting p****d off that her kids were being overlooked,” TMZ reported. “When Abby dared to bring a potential pint-sized star by the studio … Kelly freaked out.”
Kelly used to be a dancer at Abby’s studio — she was one of the company’s original members — but her daughters Brooke, 15, and Paige, 13, have since become stars of the troupe.
“Kelly began screaming at Abby and then Kelly allegedly grabbed Abby’s hair and it became a full-on cat fight,” eyewitnesses told TMZ.
