Dance MomsAbby Lee Miller, whose main claim to fame is emotionally abusing children in order to manipulate their fame hungry parents, has been indicted on charges of fraud after allegedly concealing $755,000 in income from the bankruptcy court in Pittsburgh.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports:

The star of the reality-TV show “Dance Moms” has been indicted in Pittsburgh on charges of concealing her income from her performances on the show in 2012 and 2013.

Abigale “Abby” Lee Miller, 50, formerly of Penn Hills, is charged with bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations in hiding some $755,000.

The indictment, handed up Tuesday, charges that when Ms. Miller reorganized her dance studio — the Abby Lee Dance Co. in Penn Hills — in December 2010, she schemed to defraud the bankruptcy court by hiding her income from the reality-TV, Lifetime show “Dance Moms” and related spinoffs, as well as from dance sessions and merchandise sales.
