Oh, shit – this is some karma in action. I was absolutely addicted to the first four seasons of Dance Moms, before it became painfully obvious that Maddie was the only star that show was ever going to have and Abby went all LA and it got boring as shit. However, I still keep on the fringe of the Dance Moms drama, so I was shocked/vaguely amused to hear that Abby Lee Miller has been indicted on fraud charges for allegedly concealing about $755,000 worth of assets in bankruptcy court. Whaaaat?
From The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
The star of the reality-TV show “Dance Moms” has been indicted in Pittsburgh on charges of concealing her income from her performances on the show in 2012 and 2013.
Abigale “Abby” Lee Miller, 50, formerly of Penn Hills, is charged with bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations in hiding some $755,000.
The indictment, handed up Tuesday, charges that when Ms. Miller reorganized her dance studio — the Abby Lee Dance Co. in Penn Hills — in December 2010, she schemed to defraud the bankruptcy court by hiding her income from the reality-TV, Lifetime show “Dance Moms” and related spinoffs, as well as from dance sessions and merchandise sales.
Uh oh, someone’s in trouble. Something tells me Abby may be going the Teresa Giudice route and hitting up prison sometime soon!
