The Dance Moms fight heard 'round the world is now headed to court.

On Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 7, Kelly Hyland grew sick of Abby Lee Miller mouthing off to her daughters. She threatened to leave, words were exchanged, Abby lept up, Kelly jabbed her finger in the teacher's face.

And then Abby tried to eat it.

Seriously. See for yourself here:

Now, Kelly has filed a $5 million lawsuit against Abby, claiming the Dance Moms star instigated this confrontation by lunging at her and "gnashing her teeth loudly."

"Miller is a very large woman" who Kelly believes "weighs around 300 pounds or so," it says in the legal documents as a way to show why Kelly felt threatened and helpless.

Did Kelly initiate the physical contact by slapping Abby? Yes, but only in self-defense, according to the lawsuit.

Watch Dance Moms online now to see what led up to this awesomely entertaining showdown:
