Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms fame has been sentenced to one year in prison for bankruptcy fraud.
Despite filing for bankruptcy, authorities discovered evidence that she was trying to conceal $775,000 in income from her television appearances, and other franchise-related businesses.
The 50-year-old owner and manager of Pittsburgh's Abby Lee Dance Company is expected to serve nine months in a Los Angeles-area facility followed by two years of supervised release and $160,000 in fines.
"I'm certainly ashamed to be meeting you for the first time in this manner," she told the judge before getting sentenced. "I wish you could take my class or come to one of my events and see how much I love this."
She went on to say that her father had a perfect credit score, and when she took over his dance business at 14 and ran into debt, she intended to pay everybody back, but it became more complicated than she thought.
"I didn't realise when you apply for bankruptcy, it's like signing up for more homework," she admitted.
Abby Lee reportedly has 45 days to report to prison.
