The court requested to delay sentencing because of a "scheduling conflict," as the government counsel was "unavailable on that date," Deadline reported.

This is one of the many breaks Miller, 50, has received. She was initially scheduled to be sentenced on October 22, 2016, but her sentencing was later postponed an additional 45 days before the most recent delay was granted.

In June, the dance teacher pled guilty to one count of not reporting an international monetary transaction and one count of concealing bankruptcy assets.

She faces up to 30 months in prison.

Prosecutors initially requested she spend five years in prison and pay $5 million in fines when she was charged with 20 counts of fraud in October 2015.

Miller may be using her additional months of freedom to vacation, as she asked the court permission to travel to Las Vegas, Nevada, Tijuana, Mexico and more locations over the summer.
