Lifetime’s dance reality show Dance Moms’ future is now at stake because of recent stalking issues. Relevant sources say that a stalker tried to invade the privacy of one of the young cast members as well as the show. Will this alarming situation affect the show’s fate? Will Dance Moms Season 7 be canceled since the cast is traumatized by stalking?
Dance Moms is a hit with six successful seasons. However, the child stars of the show have faced some pretty terrifying situations lately. A few disturbing incidents that have been happening off the set are possibly even more dramatic than the show itself.
The most recent of these incidents took place in May when a man tried to break into Abby Lee Miller’s dance studio during Dance Moms Season 6.
As per the reports of local media, a 34-year-old man known as Joseph McKinstry insisted on being let inside so he could read poetry to the students. It has also been known that a Twitter account reportedly owned by McKinstry sent out dozens of friendly tweets to child star Mackenzie Ziegler before his arrest.
In September 2015, a San Diego man dubbed as Phoenix Sundown tried to dispatch suspicious packages to one of the cast members. The packages reportedly included some blankets, a coffee maker, letters and some sexually explicit material. The unidentified cast member never received the packages since police destroyed the materials with a water cannon at the post office.
They arrested Sundown who was later on sentenced to three years in prison and will have to register as a sex offender. Afterward, private security guards were hired to keep an eye on the Dance Moms stars in the studio and during competitions, conveyed cast member Chloe Lukasiak.
In an interview with Radar Online, she stated: “Our crew would go outside and deal with it. It’s creepy, it’s so scary.” Her statement might not sound healthy to many contestants who wish to appear on Dance Moms Season 7. Are they going to try to back out of the show?
A reliable source reveals that casting for Dance Moms Season 7 is in progress. There is no official word yet on exactly when the new season will premiere.
