“Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller has been charged with hiding $775,000 worth of income from the Lifetime network reality show and spin-off projects while in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.
During her Chapter 11 bankruptcy, prosecutors found that she hid income in 2012 and 2013 earned from her TV appearances as well as from dance sessions, merchandise and apparel sales.
Ms. Miller concealed her income in order to gain very favorable terms in paying back her creditors.
The scheme and fraud was uncovered when the Bankruptcy Judge was watching television and saw Abby Lee Miller while channel surfing. Well, guess what? The Judge and Court have ordered her to put on her dancing shoes and dance her way into Court.
Abby Lee has been charged with: 2 counts of bankruptcy fraud, 5 counts of concealing assets and 13 counts of making false bankruptcy statements. Each count carries up to five (5) years in prison.
Abby Lee may just have danced her last dance; thanks to a Judge witnessing her dancing on television.
It should be well known at this point, the complete truth is always required in bankruptcy. Shame on you Abby Lee!
