We've definitely seen the Dance Moms stars come and go over the years, but one we can't particularly shake is Chloe Lukasiak. The reality star left the Lifetime series in 2014 — but many fans are still wondering: why did Chloe leave Dance Moms? She answers this and everything else you want to know in her book, Girl on Pointe: Chloe’s Guide to Taking on the World — due out in January 2018 — and also opened up to People about her abrupt departure.
“The reason for leaving the show was my old teacher mocked my eye very bluntly; I was dealing with some serious health issues. [My exit] was very abrupt and I didn’t expect to leave obviously. But after that happened my mom and I just kind of talked about it and it didn’t seem right to go back,” she said of her former coach Abby Lee Miller.

“It didn’t feel like it was a good environment for me to be in anymore. I don’t regret what I did at all. I’m very happy I left when I did. I think it only would’ve gotten way worse. I don’t think that would’ve been good for my mom [Christi] or me, for our mental state. Everything happens for a reason so I was glad I left.”
Chloe's mother, Christi, seemingly echoed these claims during a previous interview with The Morning Show in Australia. She explained, “As things got progressively worse, I think you can see I definitely changed as the series went on. At the end, I just said it’s time to be done. I think that we were just sort of watching and seeing what was best for Chloe and when it was time we knew it, and we moved on.”
