'Dance Moms' Star

My Daughter's in Therapy

Because of Abby

EXCLUSIVE

0627-abby-lee-hyland-01
"Dance Moms" instructor Abby Lee Miller so frightened her students ... one pint-sized dancer needed a shrink ... so the mom claims in a new lawsuit.

Kelly Hyland claims Miller made her daughter Paige so nervous during rehearsals ... the girl started suffering panic attacks to the point she couldn't breathe. 

Hyland says in the lawsuit producers made it even worse by shoving cameras in Paige's face during her anxiety attacks.  She says the whole thing was so traumatic, Paige had to go to a psychiatrist.

Hyland claims Miller tormented her, too ... calling her an alcoholic stage mom ... and insulting her with 8 bottles of tequila as an XMAS present.

We reached out to Miller about the lawsuit ... but all she did was brag about her new book.

She could have taken her daughter out of dance at anytime, but she wanted the camera's and fame it's her own fault.

I have absolutely no sympathy for any parent who would subject their young children to this type of treatment just to satisfy their own ego and need for fame and money. Want to know who to blame? Just take a look in the mirror!

PLEASE...What an Idiot...Fame-whore through your child.
If so concerned she should have yanked her child out as soon as she saw problems. This Mother is Unfit. Too bad
that child has to live around a nutcase.

It's almost like saying my daughter had to have an abortion after I continually kept taking her to the man that was always raping her. How dare he get her pregnant!!!
I'm sure there's a much better way to put that, but that's what came to mind. Sorry.

Why can't Child Protective Services take charge with this child and these two women. No child should be subjected to this dance teacher and no parent should be allowed to let their child be filmed like this . Disgusting parents and dance teacher. Dance teacher should spend time in jail for child abuse and the parents need parenting classes.

Ms miller was just fine for her daughters when Kelly was getting paid and they were still ok tv. Maybe if Kelly quit and pulled her kids from the program... But you know Kelly and family would still be on the show if they weren't forced out.

I hope the mom is also planning to sue herself because if she were a good mother, she would have out fame or dance aside
