'Dance Moms' Star Sues

Abby Miller Is a 300 lb. Beast Who Tried to Bite Me

Abby Lee Miller is a huge and vicious bully who attacked one of her "Dance Moms" co-stars like a rabid dog ... this according to a new lawsuit filed by the alleged victim who's looking for at least $5 million.

Kelly Hyland just filed a lawsuit against Abby over the knock-down drag-out catfight TMZ first reported last month ... where the two women came to blows during a rehearsal in NYC.

In the suit ... Hyland, a regular on the show, claims she got fed up with Abby yelling at her 2 daughters -- but when she attempted to leave ... Abby jumped in front of her and started yelling and lunging toward her.

Hyland goes on to describe a Cujo-like attack ... claiming, in the docs, Abby was "gnashing her teeth loudly attempting to bite [me]."

Then she added this gem ...  "Miller is a very large woman" who she believes "weighs around 300 pounds or so." 

In the docs, Kelly says she slapped Abby and pulled her head away, but only in self-defense. The brawl aired -- pretty much how Kelly describes it -- this week on Lifetime.



Kelly also claims producers intentionally drove her away from the fight and put her on a plane -- knowing police would issue a warrant for her arrest ... and thereby create a juicy story line.

Hyland is suing Abby and the "Dance Moms" producers for assault, defamation, and breach of contract -- she claims she hasn't been getting paid regularly since the fight. She also wants $5 mil in punitive damages.

this is so stupid they fight every single episodes. For her to expect $5mill when she slapped Abby is so laughable. the whole nature of the show is Abby shouting at their kids then the moms starting fighting with Abby. Happens every episode. So for Kelly to act like its all new is crazy. she should be grateful she been getting big paychecks for doing nothing but sit & watch her kid at dance class!

Wow ...    

I have watched that show a few times, only to be disgusted that Abbey was a bully to the dancing children. She abuses them. With that being said, Kelly should have left long ago. As should all of the other parents and their children. There is nothing entertaining about a woman throwing her weight around, both figuratively and literally. Disgusting behavior from all of them, but if I were on a jury I would lean towards Kelly's version.

Abby is a crazy loon but Kelly is seriously unbalanced. She has gone batsh*t crazy many times on the show. Moreover, she told ABC News in January that she slapped Abby and pulled her hair because she was "provoked," and "sticking up for her kids." Now it was suddenly self-defense??? Kelly, were you lying THEN or are you lying NOW?
