‘Dance Moms’ Star Abby Lee Miller Charged with Bankruptcy Fraud, Accused of Hiding Income From Reality Show
By Holly Rasmussen
It’s been a rough week for Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller. It was announced on Tuesday that the famously strict dance instructor is getting indicted on charges of fraud, right after she was slammed in the media by Dancing with the Stars’ Maks Chmerkovskiy, who claims she’s an “awful human being.”
Abby’s legal troubles started five years ago when she filed for bankruptcy. The judge on the case, Judge Thomas Agresti, was just about ready to approve Abby’s bankruptcy reorganization when he saw her on television, appearing on her reality show, Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition, and in an ad for American Idol! This surprised the judge, since Abby had made no mention of these ventures when she was disclosing income information to the courts.
