Dance Moms’ Abby Lee Miller Finally Escapes Bankruptcy

January 14, 2014 02:00 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

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!

What do you think of Abby Lee Miller’s efforts to escape bankruptcy? Would you have guessed the Dance Moms star faced such pressing financial issues prior to the debut of her reality show? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it, so sound off in the comments section below!

    Abby needs to THANK ALL of her Moms because without their children should would not have had this opportunity! Abby is talented but the way she degrades those girls are pathetic! I don’t think Melissa would stay around if Abby would treat her girls like she treats Brooke and Paige! If Abby treated all the girls like Maddie and MacKenzie!

    I agree with Sonya & Robin. Abby should not be given air time at all. She is abusive, in your face, on tv, to the girls. She was the one all over Kelly and if I were Kelly I would have defended myself too. Abby has a lot more bulk on her than Kelly and she was gnashing her teeth in her face. Hateful. Equally – I don’t know why all the mothers don’t pull their children out. It can’t be worth what the girls go through no matter the win.

    I’ve watched this untalented bitch over the last couple of years and she is a disgrace to the dancing world. My daughter took dancing lessons from a really talented woman from England. She was a fantastic teacher = Makes Abby look sick. My two granddaughters took from the same teacher. Hang it up Abby! If I had been Kelly, I would have REALLY hit you in the face. You deserved it – I hope she wins your ridiculous lawsuit and MORE!

    I don’t think she deserved it… certainly Abby acts like a b*tch but i think deep down she loves those kids.
    Though i do think she should thank the moms and act a bit more considerate
    Also if she’d tone down on the criticism of the girls… But at least if they have haters in the future they can deal with it.
    Sometimes if you don’t tell the kids off like Abby does they can become spoilt.
    I’m saying this as some who is around the same age as those girls.
    Abby may sound harsh but a lot of the times its just making corrections and getting the girls to be the best, so they can make a future out of it.
    Though she went to far with Kelly.
    Anyway, just my opinion, thought i’d counter all the Abby hatting going on above ^^^^^
