Dancing for the Devil viewers left baffled after Miranda Derrick 'attends' sisters wedding despite recently slamming family

The Netflix true crime documentary hones in on the traumatic experiences of the Wilking sisters

TikTok sensation and controversial 'cult member' Miranda Derrick has left her social media followers baffled this week, after revealing that she attended the wedding of estranged sister Melanie Wilking, just days after firing shots at her whole family.

For those who aren't in the loop with the spat between the formerly close-knot duo, you've got a LOT to catch up on, being that they've been at loggerheads since 2019.

The story of their fall out has now been told, however, in Netflix's latest true-crime documentary, which tells the story of the sisters' involvement in the sinister 7M Films.

Titled Dancing For The Devil, the chilling three-parter - which landed on the streaming service last week - tells the story of a group of high-profile TikTok stars who became trapped in what many have accused of being a Los Angeles-based 'cult masquerading as management company', 7M.

Among those who allegedly became indoctrinated by the group's controversial and downright bizarre belief system were Melanie and Miranda, who previously shot to fame back after creating catchy dance clips on the video-sharing app and signed with the group in 2019.

Whilst part of the family, the pair were presided over by controversial owner Robert Shinn, who also served as pastor at the Shekinah Church, which was set up in the years prior.

After some time, however, Melanie began to suspect that there may be something more sinister going on behind the scenes, particularly after she and Miranda were encouraged to cut off all contact with her own family.

As a result, Melanie returned home, only for Miranda to remain with the mysterious group.

In the years that followed - and as is the focal point of the documentary - former members of the group have since accused Robert of sexual, emotional and financial abuse - which he denies.

The series ends by explaining that Shinn - who declined to appear - had denied all allegations made against him and has not faced any formal criminal charges.

Instead, he has filed defamation and libel lawsuits against ex-members, three of whom joined a cross-complaint accusing 'Shinn, his wife, their entities and other affiliated individuals' of 'fraud, forced labor and human trafficking, as well as Robert of sexual battery'.

Others, however, were left wondering where TikTok star Miranda - as well as the other members of 7M - is now, and where her relationship with her estranged family currently stands.

Earlier this week, however, she broke her silence on the matter with a shock statement released on social media.

As well as slamming the docu-series as 'one-sided', Miranda claimed that she and her family simply 'don't see eye-to-eye', despite older sister Melanie having claimed in the program that they've had painfully limited contact with her over the years.

Amongst numerous other controversial claims, the dancer told her followers: "My family don't honor the space I've asked for and I saw a different side of them I've never seen before.

"Honestly, it made me mad, frustrated and annoyed that they were being so overbearing and chaotic."

Naturally, therefore, millions of Miranda's followers have been left utterly blindsided today to discover that she this week attended the wedding of her reportedly estranged sister.

Taking to Instagram, she shared a snap in a black gown captioned: "Had such a great time at my sister’s wedding".

By the sounds of things, however, followers of their feud aren't quite convinced by the sisters' apparently friendly relationships.

"Soooo what’s with the Netflix show?," one hit out in the comments.

Another went on: "But u didn’t even go ?? Girl we watched the documentary"

"Huh that's funny... cause in the documentary it says that you weren't at her wedding... Interesting" added a third.

Earlier this week, a spokesperson for Miranda, her husband James, 7M and Robert also denied the allegations featured in the Netflix doc, putting the Wilkings’ claims down to a family disagreement.

"Miranda Derrick is a successful businesswoman and a loving wife and daughter who cares very much about her family," a statement said.

"While the recent portrayals of Dr. Robert Shinn and 7M Films have been wildly offensive and riddled with inaccuracies, those false claims will not deter 7M from supporting Miranda in whichever endeavors she chooses to pursue next."

Hannah Shinn, Robert's wife, has also shared a statement with Tyla.

It reads: "The Netflix docuseries is a slanderous work of fiction, born from a failed extortion attempt, and invented for the sole purpose of gaining fame and fortune.

"Two years ago, Melanie Lee Goldman, Priscylla Leigh aka Elisha Priscylla Leigh and their co-conspirators launched a concerted smear campaign to defame Robert Shinn, his family, and his business associates after Mr. Shinn did not capitulate to Ms. Leigh’s extortion demands.

"Despite sworn statements from co-conspirators that confirm the scheme by Ms. Goldman and Ms. Leigh to disseminate widespread lies, Netflix recklessly provided a global platform to peddle a false narrative that is at the center of ongoing litigation.

"We will continue to pursue all legal remedies available to stop the spread of salacious lies and expect to be fully vindicated in court."
