“The treatment and physical therapy has not been as successful as doctors had hoped,” a source close to Miller told RadarOnline.com. “She still can’t walk and is in a wheelchair.”
The insider claimed Miller, 52, has been “heavily working on her will.”
In Miller’s absence, teacher and choreographer Gianna Martello, who has appeared in most Dance Moms episodes, has taken over the Pittsburgh and Los Angeles studios.
“Gia is getting the studio,” the source claimed. “She’s basically the kid Abby never had. Gia will get most of what she has to carry on her legacy.”
The insider added, “She is giving her money mostly to Gia and some friends back home.”
The ALDC has been in good hands with Martello. She’s been posting dances from class and at competitions. Her students have taken home first place at various competitions.
Miller confirmed the upcoming season with a video of her new competition team.
“These kids still have to earn their Official #ALDC jackets,” she captioned the video. “I wonder who will live up to the legacy and survive the bitter Pgh cold to make the final cut? Don’t you?”
“Abby is acting very tough, but doctors are not confident it’s the right time to leave her treatment in Los Angeles to head to Pittsburgh for a TV show,” a source previously told RadarOnline.com. “She is going against doctors' wishes and going back to work.”
Miller underwent emergency surgery in April 2018 for what doctors believed was an infection of the spine.
She was later diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
