Abby’s routine to track We On Top came after a tricky time for the star last month, when she sued a hotel she had stayed at.

HOTEL HORROR

Abby recently claimed a hefty hotel door pinned her wheelchair when in her hotel room.

The alleged incident occurred while the TV star was staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Santa Monica back in August 2020.

Abby has now filed a lawsuit for the physical and emotional damages she endured, according to TMZ.

The Lifetime alum is reportedly suing the hotel’s parent corporation for negligence, emotional distress, discrimination and false imprisonment, seeking an $8.5 million payout.

The horrific accident happened when Abby alleged she got the wheel of her wheelchair stuck on the sliding bathroom door of her hotel room, as per documents obtained by the publication.

When the dance teacher attempted to break free, the 300-lb door came crashing down trapping her in the doorway for six to twelve minutes, the docs stated.

Abby was eventually rescued by hotel staff and was taken to a nearby hospital.

HEALTH BATTLE

The dance coach was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma nearly four years ago, which left her wheelchair-bound.

According to Lymphoma Research Foundation, “Burkitt’s Lymphoma is a rare but highly aggressive (fast-growing) lymphoma.

“This disease may affect the jaw, central nervous system, bowel, kidneys, ovaries, or other organs. Burkitt lymphoma may spread to the central nervous system.”

In October 2021, Abby told HollywoodLife she was still struggling with her health.

“[During COVID I had] another surgery on my spine — my lumbar region that was the original problem years ago — and that’s why I went to that doctor because my leg was going numb when I was driving in all this LA traffic so I knew something was wrong,” Abby Lee said revealing she had Spondylolisthesis that was getting “worse and worse.” 

She opened up about going to “in-patient rehab,” and following that, underwent restorative surgery.

The TV personality also happened to break her leg in two places. Doctors ordered her not to bear weight on her legs for three months, which was also a setback for the dancing queen.

She told the outlet she plans to get out of her wheelchair and walk again.

“I need me to coach me,” she stated. “I need an Abby Lee person to whip my butt into shape and make me the best I can be.”

In a 2021 interview, Abby revealed that she learning to walk again after having an elective operation to help ease her pain and regain her mobility.  

Speaking to Daily Mail she said: ‘I want to have more independence. I want to live my life. I want to be able to jump in the shower anytime I want, anytime I feel like it. That’s a huge goal.

“People see me sitting in the chair, and I’m in make-up and hair and, “Oh, she’s doing great.”

“They don’t really see what goes on behind closed doors. It’s rough. Very rough.”

DANCE FAME

Dance Moms took over the reality TV scene back in the early 2010s and choreographer Abby was the star of the show.

The show ran for eight seasons on the Lifetime channel from 2011 to 2019 – with Abby at the helm until 2016.

In 2017 she was sentenced to a year in prison for bankruptcy fraud.

Upon her release while she was living in a halfway house, she discovered her cancer diagnosis.
