'Dance Moms' Star Abby Lee Miller Indicted For Bankruptcy Fraud

She is accused of concealing over $750,000.

Abby Lee Miller, choreographer and star of Lifetime's "Dance Moms," has been indicted on charges of "bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets, and false bankruptcy declarations," United States Attorney David J. Hickton of the Western District of Pennsylvania said in a statement

Miller was named as the sole defendant in the 20-count indictment, which was returned on Oct. 13. 

According to the indictment, Miller filed a Petition to Reorganize her dance studio in 2010, then concealed income earned from "Dance Moms" and related spin-off shows and from merchandise and apparel sales between 2012 and 2013.

The indictment also alleges that Miller hid her money in separate bank accounts, which she kept hidden. She also apparently instructed others to hide the information from the bankruptcy court and Trustee. The reality TV star is accused of concealing a total of approximately $755,492.85. 

Miller faces up to five years in prison and/or a fine of $250,000 for each account.
