'Dance Moms' Star Abby Lee Miller Opens Up on ‘Rough’ Fraud Case

Despite her recent fraud charges, Abby Lee Miller enjoyed a night out at Elton John's Oscar viewing party, where she opened up about her legal issues.

The "Dance Moms” star admitted her fraud case has taken its toll on her. She was indicted on bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets, and false bankruptcy declarations in October. “It’s rough. It’s hard. My dad used to run my business and he did all the books and everything was great. It’s your family you trusted, ya know — they had your back. Every person I hired after that was just one thing after another and you hire attorneys, you hire accountants, you hire your people, who are professional… maybe they don’t do their jobs as well as they’re supposed to."

It has just been announced that “Dance Moms” will be returning. When asked about her future on the show, she responded, “I guess… I’ll have to see, but I’m not sure yet!”

Miller also confirmed that fan favorite, Maddie Ziegler and her sister Mackenzie, who have been on the show since it premiered six seasons ago, will not be returning. “I train kids, I’ve always done that… And they go on and they work professionally and my dreams are always bigger than their dreams, so I think this was bound to happen.”

Abby broke some big news on Maddie’s future. “I believe that Maddie will be either the new judge or the host of the 'So You Think You Can Dance Next Generation Show.'”

Miller added that she won’t be surprised if some of the other girls don’t return as well, “I think that, maybe, they need to learn how to treat their talent.”

Aside from the Lifetime show, the business woman also has many other projects in the works including a new show in Australia.

“Dance Moms” airs on Tuesdays on Lifetime.
