Abby Lee Miller Creates ‘Dance Moms’ Drama Facing $5M Fraud Fine & Jail: When Season 6 Debuts & Sneak Peek

"Dance Moms" Season 6 will feature even more drama from Abby Lee Miller.

Abby Lee Miller is ready to appeal to Dance Moms drama lovers even more in Season 6. From her fraud bombshell to the dance mothers mania, find out what to expect in the new season below. Dance Moms Season 6 starts in January, reported the International Business Times.

In contrast to previous seasons featuring battles for the top of the pyramid, this season of Dance Moms will focus more on Abby Lee herself and Miller’s legal battles. A sneak peek reveled the Dance Moms queen seeking pity during a telephone chat.

“My hair’s in rollers, I don’t have a bra on and I have a huge legal issue going on. I’m finished!” wailed Abby Lee.

Most episodes show Melissa Gisoni, who is the mom of rising dance star Maddie Ziegler, defending Miller. But could it be that Melissa is changing to Team Dance Mom instead of Team Abby?

“She doesn’t want to mess with me right now,” cautions Maddie’s mother in the preview. “I know so much stuff.”

In addition, Dance Moms reveals Melissa, Holly Frazier, and Jill Vertes learning that Abby faces the possibility that she could spend as much as five years in prison. That horrifying future resulted from Miller falsely declaring bankruptcy, concealing assets associated with bankruptcy, and committing fraud. Abby Lee entered a plea of not guilty.

But that’s not the only shocker on Dance Moms Season 6. One of the mothers, Jill, becomes angry about a new dancer, Brynn Rumfallo, an elite junior member.

“Are you kidding me? You never trained that kid!” argues Kendall’s mom.

Jill isn’t the only cranky dance mother. Holly, who is the mom of Nia, also is upset enough to consider switching studios.

“Debbie Allen wanted to work with our girls,” revealed Holly. “If Abby’s not prepared, there is a studio that wants us.”

The outcome of those suspenseful conversations will be revealed, at least in part, when Dance Moms Season 6 begins January 5 on Lifetime at 9 p.m. EST.

In addition to all that drama, Abby Lee is having problems with a producer of Dance Moms, according to Deadline.

Miller revealed that due to those issues, she may miss some aspects of Season 6 of Dance Moms. The revelation of the battle with a producer coincides with her legal battle, which includes 20 counts of fraud. In addition to the potential that she could spend as much as five years in jail, the Dance Moms diva is facing $5 million in fines.

As for the battle with a producer, Abby Lee revealed that drama in a recent newsletter.

“If I’ve gone missing from a few episodes in Season 6, don’t believe anything anybody says,” cautioned the Dance Moms star. “No doubt, I am fighting with a Producer.”

Miller did not indicate the name of that producer on Dance Moms, which is from Collins Avenue Productions. But she did reveal what the battle concerns.

“Cockamamie ideas,” summed up Abby Lee.

The Dance Moms queen contends that her goal is to provide her pupils with a worthy role model. But according to Abby Lee, the producer desired that she instruct a student to do something that she feels is wrong.

“When a grown man tells me he wants one of my kids to portray a pregnant teen and wear a baby bump — I have to put my foot down,” explained the dance instructor in her newsletter. “If that means not moving my foot and not working and getting fined in the process, well that’s a risk I am willing to take to protect my girls. I am always teaching principles, integrity, and values in addition to dance technique. It is important for me that the girls learn to stand up and fight for what they believe in!”

Ironically, it is Dance Moms that caused some of her legal problems, in particular the allegations that she did not reveal all her assets during the bankruptcy. A judge involved was viewing Dance Moms when he realized that nothing major regarding her profit from the show had come to his attention.
