Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller is facing up to five years in prison after being indicted by a federal grand jury on 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations!
The news comes out of the dance instructor's native Pittsburgh this morning. Miller filed a petition with the court back in 2010 for the reorganization of her dance studio, but allegedly created a secret bank account in order to conceal her income after the filing. Local news station WPXI reports that the indictment alleges Miller hid income totaling $755,000 earned from her reality show, merchandise sales, and dances sessions between 2012 and 2013.
Orange could be the new black leotard for Miller. If convicted, she faces up to five years in prison, as well as a $250,000 fine for each of the 20 counts of the indictment.
Miller is only the latest reality star to find herself in hot water over hiding money. As Radar has reported, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is currently completing a 15-month prison sentence after being convicted on charges related to bankruptcy fraud. Her husband Joe will serve his 41-month sentence after her release.
