She can’t dance her way out of this one.
Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller has been indicted on fraud charges, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. She’s being accused of concealing her income from her performances on the show during the years of 2012 and 2013.
The 50-year-old has “been charged with bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations in hiding some $755,000,” the publication reported.
According to the report, federal agents said after reorganizing her studio in 2010, the Abby Lee Dance Studio in Penn Hills, Penn., Miller then schemed to hide her income from the reality show, its spinoff shows, and dance classes.
They also say she instructed others to hide the income, as well, in bank accounts she created.
If Miller is convicted, she could face five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count of the indictment. That could total up to $5 million, according to a report by E! News.
The outspoken reality star has appeared on Lifetime’s hit show since 2011.
