Dance instructor Abby Lee Miller is set to appear in court next week. She faces a handful of federal charges. But will she lose her reality show as well? Has the seventh season of “Dance Moms” really been cancelled?
The sixth season of “Dance Moms” just wrapped up last month. It’s still unclear, though, if Miller and the girls will get another season.
The award winning choreographer might be preoccupied with things other than dance at the moment. According to Entertainment Tonight, Miller has a court hearing next Monday in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She faces charges of bankruptcy fraud and money laundering. She also allegedly failed to report more than $10 thousand worth of Australian currency (around AU$13.4 thousand in total).
According to Yahoo! News, Miller has released a statement to address the issue. “Events over the past several months have been extremely challenging for me, my family, my friends and most important, my students. Because of this I made the very difficult decision to close the door on this chapter of my life by accepting responsibility for mistakes I have made along the way,” she said in the statement.
Despite this, Miller’s lawyers kept mum about their court strategy for next week. It is still unclear if Miller will actually plead guilty or not. Miller instead chose to thank fans who are choosing to stick with her through this whole ordeal. “I appreciate all the wonderful messages of support I’ve received from around the world,” she said. “[I] look forward to the future and getting back to my life’s work… helping young dancers fulfill their potential.”
As for her show, if Ecumenical News is proven correct, there might be other reasons why the seventh season of “Dance Moms” might be axed. Rumors suggest there might be drama between Miller and the show’s producers and stars. However, these are yet to be confirmed.
