Abby Lee Miller Bankruptcy Fraud

Abby Lee Miller Will Be Released From Prison This May

Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller was sentenced to a year long prison stint back in May 2017. The reality star was indicted for concealment of bankruptcy assets and bankruptcy fraud in 2015 and she started her time behind bars in July 2017.

Dance students beware, Abby is getting out earlier than expected.

It would be a fair assessment to say that Abby Lee Miller has had a rough few years (not that I’m giving her a pass for her horrific behavior over the last decade!), but hopefully things are looking up for the Dance Moms star. We watched as she had some major meltdowns on the show (to be fair, the “ladies” she was dealing with were also the worst!), and her latest residence was less ALDC and more Orange is the New Black.

Thankfully for Abby, her time in the clink is drawing to a close. She will be released to a halfway house on February 20 after receiving a reduction in her sentence due to good behavior. Not surprisingly, the controversial reality star has some big plans for her post-prison life, including a tell-all book, some plastic surgery, and hopefully (her hope, not mine) another show on television. Lifetime, are you listening?

Abby Lee Miller‘s reign of terror is about to be unleashed on the masses once again! Abby has managed to secure early release and is getting out of prison after serving just half her time!

The former Dance Moms star was sentenced to one year and one day in prison for bankruptcy fraud, but will be released on February 20th following only six months of incarceration. Abby has been in a California women’s penitentiary, and upon release will transition to a halfway house in Van Nuys for the unknown duration. 

Abby Lee Miller Smiles Before Prison

Abby Lee Miller will self-surrender to prison and begin serving a one-year sentence for bankruptcy fraud on July 12. Instead of contrition, remorse, or humility after pleading guilty to hiding $750,000 in her bankruptcy filing, Abby continues to maintain her innocence and insist she’s a “nice Catholic girl” who was an unwitting victim of other’s financial schemes.

“It’s a little surreal. I know that I am not a criminal mastermind,” the Dance Moms star decried. “I listened to the wrong people. I trusted people.”

After her indictment in 2015 for attempting to hide $775,000 in income from bankruptcy creditors, Abby Lee Miller was sentenced yesterday to a year and a day in federal prison. This morning she sat down with Good Morning America to talk about the sentencing and what will be next for her post-prison.

What is the next chapter for the former Dance Moms star? “To be a smarter businesswoman. Also, to worry about myself. I have spent so much time and so much energy making other people’s children stars. I didn’t have any children of my own, these were my kids. And I raised them like they were my kids.” When asked if she loved those kids, she tearfully nods and says “I do.”

Just when you thought things couldn’t get more dramatic for Abby Lee Miller, the controversial reality star has tendered her resignation to the folks over at Lifetime…on social media, of course! Whatever is going to become of Dance Moms without its petty and demanding leading lady? I guess it was only a matter of time, given Abby’s legal woes and the potential prison time she’s facing on multiple bankruptcy fraud charges.

At least this way, the exit is on Abby’s terms, and as you can imagine, she is exiting stage left in a giant blaze of glory. Complaining of sexism and a power struggle over creative control, Abby is letting Lifetime have it, with a lot of caps lock, no less.

Abby Lee Miller scared

I might be in the minority with this one, but there’s just something about Abby Lee Miller that I love. I don’t think I would feel this way if I was on Dance Moms, but as an outsider who is addicted to her show, I can’t help enjoying her ridiculous antics.

Nevertheless, one thing I can’t condone is Abby joining the trend set by reality stars of hiding income and facing jail time. Abby is far from the first reality star to face this kind of issue, so that makes it especially tough to watch. Didn’t she know better!? Apparently not and now Abby is speaking out about the charges against her and her fears about the very real possibility that she will be sent to prison. The woman who has shown pretty much zero empathy for other humans is trying to tug on people’s heartstrings with her recent comments.

Abby Lee Miller to plead guilty

So, could someone finally be taking responsibility for her actions? And, if so, does this mean we’re saved from another season of Dance Moms? Would anyone really watch without the Ziegler girls anyway? So many questions, and unfortunately, we won’t be getting the answers to the latter two any time soon. However, it seems that Abby Lee Miller is finally coming clean about her little misunderstanding with the IRS

The sharp-tongued dance instructor and reality star is no stranger to controversy, from her tyrannical teaching methods to her childish feuds with her students’ mothers. Add in her often flighty, mid-2000s Britney Spears behavior complete with fast food binges, glassy eyes, and hot rollers, and some wondered if Abby wasn’t the perfect candidate for 5150 hold. Obviously by “some” I mean me.
