Hold the phones!
On Thursday, it was revealed that Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler is planning on leaving the Lifetime hit after season six. Whoa!
We never thought we’d see the day.
Miz Ziegler is one of the show’s original cast members alongside her sister Mackenzie and mom Melissa Gisoni. Still we shouldn’t be so floored by this departure news as the 13-year-old has gained quite a bit of fame for her work in Sia‘s music videos Chandelier and Elastic Heart.
Unfortunately, Lifetime has yet to confirm whether or not the reality TV program will return for a seventh season — but it seems that won’t affect the tiny dancer now. HA!
A source noted that Maddie has simply outgrown her role on DM and is looking to move to Hollywood to explore acting opportunities. Well that makes sense!
We can only imagine the up-and-comer’s exit from the show will not leave dance teacher Abbey Lee Miller very happy. Especially since she’s also busy dealing with 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud — we doubt losing her top dancer will go over well. Oof!
Be sure to stay tuned for any updates over Maddie’s exit from Dance Moms.
