"Dance Moms" star Kelly Hyland has been legally FORBIDDEN from having any contact with co-star Abby Lee Miller after a nasty catfight ... which means they can't even tweet each other, TMZ has learned.

Hyland was in court this morning in NYC facing assault and harassment charges after allegedly attacking Miller -- who owns and runs the dance studio -- in a fit of jealousy back in November.

As we previously reported, sources tell us the two women had a hair-pulling brawl at the dance studio after Kelly accused Abby of slighting her young daughters.

Both women showed up at the courthouse this morning ... and so did a camera from Lifetime ... 'cause you KNOW this is going to be part of the TV show.

During the hearing, Hyland was ordered by the judge to stay away from Miller while the case is pending ... which means no talking, no phone calls and NO TWEETING at her.

#drama.

Kelly, you are a L O S E R! YOUR daughters are going to grow up so screwed up, they are going to need counseling because of YOU and your behavior and your actions! Better save your money for health care or sign them up for Obamacare NOW!

The worst thing about these moms is they don't even care about the long term effects the kids will have for being exposed to this. If your childhood memories consist of people screaming and cursing at each other all the time you're in for a ****ed up adulthood.

This is not a healthy show for youngsters e rd to watch - or adults for that matter. Abby is dangerously narcissistic and no role model for anyone. I wouldn't give much for the future for these kids, especially Melissa's.

Fattest dance teacher I have ever seen. Seriously , how in the world does she teach ? she's to fat to spin or bend, her cheeks take up her entire face. Man she makes me sick just looking at her. I hope she gets to read these comments so she will know how sick it is to see a 500 pound woman try and teach skinny dance girls. SICK.

Abbie is a bigfatnastyassbiotch. I don't blame the moms for not liking her. She is mean, evil and selfcentered.

If the cameras were there, then it's part of the show; they'll be back. It's just part of the storyline.

It is time that something was done to abby lee miller. I don't understand how Abby has not been charged with child abuse on a federal level. CPS WHERE ARE YOU!

Abby definitely instigated the fight. She and Melissa are terrible and Maddie is showing that she is becoming a spoiled brat as well. I could not believe what she said tonight, she has no compassion for her other team members! Frankly when the team dances it's the other girls that shine...not Maddie. This girl is in danger of becoming just like them, willing to lie and do anything to win!

Abby is an embarrassment to professional dancing. She is a bully to her students and their moms. She deserved everything she got and then some. Good Luck to Brooke and Paige, two beautiful talented girls who will go much farther in life without Abby Lee Miller!

Abby Lee Miller is cruel and emotionally abusive to her students and very disrespectful to her parents. As the seasons go on it gets worse and worse. She is a power hungry disgrace and should have to pay for her student's therapy bills when they get older because they will sure need it. Lifetime shoul be ashamed for exploiting this ongoing abuse.

The person who posted the previous comment obvious is oblivious to the inner workings of anything related to show business. Abby creates stars that's what she does. Sorry to say to the lay men out there the road to stardom and a successful carrer as a dancer is EXTREMELY rough in every which way , your teachers and coaches will not surgar coat corrections the student continuously ignores. Every one on the team and there mothers has had ample opportunities to get out but they say . Kelly continuously expects cushy soft talking mom and pop dance studio out of ALDC. She is insane to keep her kids with mediocre mentally in a dance studio that creats stars. I'm sorry for any mental anguish Abby suffered and Kelly deserves what ever punishment from the court and from those around her for being a consistant aggravating factor to Abby and her studio. She should have got the message a long time ago her kids don't belong in ALDC
