The truth comes out! Dance Moms star Chloe Lukasiak revealed a lot of surprising things about the reality show during a tell-all video on YouTube. One big question she answered for fans is why she got “kicked out” of her old studio, and cut ties with Abby Lee Miller.
“I might take this out of the video because I might get sued for saying this,” the 17-year-old nervously said before answering the question. “The beginning of season 4, I got kicked out of the dance studio. I was still on the show, and my former dance teacher couldn’t kick me off the show because she didn’t have that power or ability,” she continued.
“I got kicked out of the studio because to be part of her studio you had to sign a contract,” the blonde beauty disclosed. “A few of the main reasons I, well my mom, wouldn’t sign is because it said stuff like you couldn’t gain or lose five to 10 pounds … You couldn’t do anything to your hair, you couldn’t do piercings or tattoos, which of course [at] 12-years-old I’m not doing any of that.”
The dancer then cleared the air by further explaining that she took the decision into her own hands. “I don’t know if I would say I got kicked out more so that I chose to leave because I knew what would happen if I didn’t sign the contract,” she confessed. “But, I wasn’t willing to agree to all of those terms.”
“She also wanted 10 percent of the money I made and I wasn’t willing to agree to that,” the teen star added. “That’s when the real issues started happening and it became really awkward between some of my old dance friends … [and] my old dance teachers and [me].” Sadly, she also admitted, “season 4 was probably the hardest for me to go through.”
The reality starlet also discussed why she left the series for two and a half seasons. “My former dance teacher made fun of a medical condition I have,” she said. When the performer was 14, she told fans she was diagnosed with silent sinus syndrome, a condition that causes facial asymmetry which affected her eye.
“Some might say it’s not that serious what she said, which I would disagree,” the teen continued. “If you know anything about Dance Moms, you probably know I was my former dance teacher’s least favorite student. She was really rough on me that year.”
The dance guru continued to say that she overheard her former teacher “making fun” of her which resulted in her exit off the show. “As much respect as I have for her as a dance teacher and as a person and, of course with everything she’s going through right now. What she did was horrible,” Chloe completed the story.
It looks like all is not fair in love and dance.
