Elliana Walmsley Has a Dark Side in the Family, In One Way | Celeb$fortune & Net Worth

Energetic, bubbly, realist, optimist, dancer, influencer, introvert, and extrovert! Elliana Kathryn Walmsley, aka Elliana Walmsley, is a bit of everything and does not mind that she doesn't fit into a specific category. Born on 23 June 2007, Elliana is an American actor, dancer, YouTuber, and social media star who rose to fame after appearing in Lifetime's reality show Dance Moms.

Walmsley made a name for herself when she was crowned with Miss Petite Dance America at the age of just eight. Elliana, who managed to be called one of America’s most flexible and talented dancers, has a big crush on Leonardo DiCaprio and dreams to be his dance partner one day.

Apart from being a celebrity dancer, Walmsley is a member of Piper Rockelle’s Best Friends gang which also involves Lev Cameron, Jentzen Ramirez, Jenna Davis, and Emily Dobson. It may surprise many but Walmsley hates to brag about her talent and achievements which is also the reason why her teachers and classmates at school never knew of her talent and awards before Dance Moms.

Family Background: Is Elliana Walmsley Adopted?

Born to a dancer mother, Yolanda Walmsley, and father, Kevin Walmsley, in Boulder, Colorado, Elliana is not an adopted child like many people think she is. In fact, she has two elder brothers named Jakeob Walmsley and Luke Walmsley.

The rumors of Elliana being adopted sparked after the news of her mother, Yolanda being abusive towards her children came forward. Well, Yolanda has been accused of being abusive even since the mother-daughter duo was in the Dance Moms.

Elliana's Brother Luke Accused Yolanda of Being Abusive, But She Instead Alleged That Luke Molested Her

While Elliana Walmsley looks at her mother Yolanda Walmsley as her role model, her brother Luke Walmsley has been accusing their mother of abusing them. Luke first started exposing his mother in 2020, uploading videos on his TikTok and Instagram pages where Yolanda is seen being verbally and physically abusive.

Luke accused Yolanda of beating him and his sibling after being heavily drunk and high on drugs. He further revealed that he was kicked out of the house at the age of only 15. Besides, a report of Yolanda being arrested for domestic violence went viral on the internet in 2020 as well.

Unlike her brother, Elliana defended her mother saying Luke was telling a lie and claimed Yolanda never raised a finger on her or her sibling. Instead, she blamed Luke for molesting her several times and even took her innocence when she was just five. Even though the dancer did not go deep into the abuse for "legal reasons", she did reveal that the abuse traumatized her and that it still makes her cry thinking about it.

Elliana further explained the behavior of her mother in the video shared by Luke saying that her brother was throwing cups and other stuff and Yolanda was just protecting her. The 14-year-old also revealed that Luke has been in jail several times for his actions.

Elliana Walmsley Was Born to Dance

Dancing has been in the blood of the Walmsley family which may also be the reason why Elliana Walmsley had a passion for dancing just at the tender age of 18 months (Surprising, right?). She first learned ballet at the renowned dance academy, Joffrey Ballet, and then studied at Master Ballet Academy in Scottsdale, Michelle Latimer Dance Academy in Colorado, EDGE Performing Arts Center, and The Millennium Dance Complex, both of the latter two in Los Angeles.

Elliana again returned to Dance Moms in season eight to join Abby's new dance company. She has also competed on Dancing With The Stars Juniors as well as the annual national dance competition The Dance Awards two times in the years 2017 and 2020.

Elliana Walmsley Knew Her Relationship With Boyfriend Jentzen Ramirez Was Not Going To Last Long. Is Piper Rockelle The Real Reason Behind Their Split?

Elliana Walmsley and Jentzen Ramirez were one of the most loved couples of the Piper gang, named just The Squad. Since the day Walmsley joined the squad, Ramirez had a thing for her and it did not go unnoticed by the fans. Jentzen initially started to call her "crush", and when they made their relationship official in late 2020, the fans just lost it.

The couple was head over heel for one another and did not leave any chance to show off their affection be it on Instagram or on YouTuber. However, Walmsley still thought that their middle school relationship might not last long but wanted to enjoy the love until it did.

And true to her intuitions, their relationship lasted for over a year before the couple decided to split their ways. As they did not reveal the further details of their breakup, there came many speculations, one being Ramirez's love for Piper Rockelle. The latter is still in a relationship with Lev Cameron though.

What's more, Jentzen even revealed that he and Rockelle had feelings for a very long time in a YouTube video but it was just a prank, as is most of these videos they make. Besides, the ex-lovers are still good friends and claim to have no hard feelings for one another. After all, they do make videos with 'ex-boyfriend'/'ex-girlfriend' in their title quite often. Of course, crushes and breakups tend to happen in The Squad, more pronounced since Ramirez's controversial breakup saga with Sophie Fergi when she was a part of the group as well.
