Prior to her stint on Dance Moms, controversial dance instructor Abby Lee Miller was struggling to get by. The reality show arrived at the perfect time, allowing Abby Lee to crawl out of a dire financial situation within three years of filing for bankruptcy.
She may have recently been assaulted by drama mama Kelly Hyland, but Abby appears to owe a whole lot to the mother of Dance Moms favorites Brooke and Paige, not to mention all the other moms and kids featured on the show. Before she became a household name, Abby Lee was scraping the bottom of the barrel, forced to file for bankruptcy in late 2010.
Fortunately, Dance Moms appeared on the scene soon after, attracting plenty of attention for Abby Lee’s dance studio and offering the instructor a second shot at running a financially sound business. Through hard work and plenty of reality TV luck, Abby was able to slowly but surely pay off over $400,000 in debt. Her case was fully discharged at the end of 2013 and, as her lawyer recently informed TMZ, all debts are completely paid off.
This certainly has to be a relief for Abby Lee Miller, as the dance teacher can finally focus all her attention on her studio and her television series. The show has taken off since its launch during the summer of 2011 and Abby expects great things in the near future!
