Even though there isn’t a new episode of Dance Moms this week, the latest Dance Moms spoilers don’t bode well for the new season. In fact, there is some suggestion that the show’s star, Abby Lee Miller, won’t be present on the latter part of the newest season because she’ll be in jail serving time for fraud.
Warning: this post contains spoilers. Please do not read this post if you do not wish to read Dance Moms spoilers.
According to the latest Dance Moms spoilers released by The Christian Times, Abby Lee Miller is scheduled to be sentenced for 20 counts of fraud in January of 2017. While she has already filmed nine episodes of the seventh season of her show, her sentencing in January may mean that she won’t appear in the second half of the show’s seventh season if, indeed, she’s sentenced to serve prison time instead of simply fines or probation. As it stands right now, she is looking at about five years in prison, plus fines and restitution to her victims. If she is sentenced to prison in January, however, she will have to begin serving her sentence nearly immediately.
But, according to the latest Dance Moms spoilers released by Radar Online, the new owner of the ALDC isn’t much better than the current one. Radar released exclusive documents that showed that the next proposed owner of the ALDC, dance legend Debbie Allen, has had a bunch of financial problems of her own, to the tune of more than $300,000 in back taxes owed. And, in fact, Debbie Allen’s tax problems are numerous and have plagued her for years.
“Documents obtained from the Los Angeles County Recorder’s Office reveal the IRS slapped Allen with a $35,756.66 federal tax lien in February 2015 for not paying taxes in 2011, 2012 and 2013. In February 2014, she was hit with a state tax lien for $27, 508.06 for not paying taxes in 2008, 2011 and 2012. Papers obtained from the Albany County Clerk show she was slapped with a state tax warrant for $10,085.59 in March 2011. The financial difficulties continued in California in May 2011, as she was forced to pay off a shocking $233, 151.68 federal tax lien for not paying taxes in 2008 and 2009. In January 2009, the IRS slapped her with a federal tax lien of $41,369.47 for not paying taxes in 2006.”
And this is all pretty shocking, especially considering that Abby Lee’s tax problems are just part of the reason she’s facing the trouble she’s facing today. Does this mean that the dancers won’t be interested in participating in the next season?
Even though there wasn’t a new episode of Dance Moms this week, the latest Dance Moms spoilers from Movie News Guide suggest that there’s a pretty good reason why this is so. Lifetime chose to pre-empt the new episode for the Presidential election. Lifetime, however, has assured us that there will be a new episode of Dance Moms this week, and most of the channels will return to their regularly scheduled broadcasts this week. This could prove to be beneficial to fans of the show, who may not even have much time to enjoy their show when it goes off the air.
There is, however, some silver lining to these dark clouds: Abby Lee may only get probation in January, thus keeping the show on the air.
