Abby Lee Miller pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud in June after being accused of attempting to hide income from her reality show. The 49-year-old also pleaded guilty to failing to report thousands of Australian dollars she brought into the United States. On Sunday, the Dance Moms star got candid about the legal drama while at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles, admitting she’s learned from her mistakes.
“You make mistakes, you move on,” she told The Insider With Yahoo. “And my biggest mistake is trusting people and worrying about their kids’ dancing instead of worrying about my business first. So, that’s what it is. Live and learn.”
Abby is scheduled to face sentencing on Oct. 11, but in the meantime, she said she’s going to focus on her students. “It’s been very stressful,” Abby said. “But I keep doing what I do. And I teach children to dance, that’s what I do. I make stars. Look at these gorgeous, beautiful girls, you know? They, I mean they were always beautiful, but you wouldn’t know their name if it wasn’t for the Abby Lee Dance Company and for the television show Dance Moms.”
