“She’s blown off like that before,” the Candy Apples Dance Center owner told Radar. “She has a baby hissy fit and then she goes back, so who knows if she’s really leaving.”
Nesbitt-Stein added how Miller’s decision to leave has to do with not having artistic freedom.
“She’s upset because she wants to be the voice of what they’re doing and production has their own agenda,” she claimed. “We all know she’s a huge spoiled brat!”
Although Nesbitt-Stein is unaware if this is the end of Dance Moms, she would step in for Miller if asked.
“If they came to me and it was at the right moment, sure,” she said. “I would never say never. No one has approached me on that.”
But Nesbitt-Stein isn’t the only one slamming Miller, 50, as student Kendall Vertes said in an Instagram live video of her former dance teacher’s departure, “Abby is crazy! She has a mind of her own.”
Miller broke the news yesterday evening when she captioned a photo of her remaining Junior Elite Competition Team, “I will no longer take part in Dance Moms. For the past six years/seven seasons I have asked, begged and even demanded creative credit for all the ideas, award winning routines, themes and costuming – To no avail!”
Miller added, “I don’t have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people’s children successful. I just have a problem with being manipulated, disrespected and used day in and day out by men who never took a dance lesson in their lives and treat women like dirt!”
Miller quit the show after members Nia Sioux, Kendall Vertes, Kalani Hilliker and Cameron Bridges left the ALDC to compete at 8 Count Dance Academy with former member Chloe Lukasiak.
Vertes explained of why they left the team, “Abby didn’t want to work with us.”
Brynn Rumfallo, Lilliana Ketchman, Elliana Walmsley and Maesi Caes remained with Miller, as they won first place at Fierce National Dance Competition over the weekend.
Her shocking departure comes only weeks before she is expected to learn her fate in court. Miller pled guilty to not reporting an international monetary transaction and one count of concealing bankruptcy assets in June 2016.
She faces up to 30 months in prison when she’s sentenced on May 8th.
