Former ‘Dance Moms’ Star Abby Lee Miller to Be Released From Prison After Serving Less Than Half Her Sentence

“Did you really think I was gonna spend a whole year behind bars when there are kid dancers to terrorize?!”

No doubt Abby Lee Miller is tap-dancing around the prison yard today, celebrating some very good news!

Deadline reports that the former Dance Moms star, who went to federal prison in July 2017, will be released on February 20 after serving less than half of her original “one year and one day” sentence. The site states that Abby’s getting sprung early due to good behavior.

While Abby is being released from prison early, she’s not going home just yet. Deadline reports that the reality TV villain will be sent directly to a halfway house in Van Nuys, California, for an unknown period of time.

Abby has been behind bars at a prison near Los Angeles since last summer. In October 2015, a grand jury charged Abby with 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud, concealing assets and making false bankruptcy declarations following an investigation.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Abby has made the most of her time behind bars.

“She’s lost approximately 100 pounds and is feeling great since entering the penitentiary six months ago,” the site reports. “She has already requested multiple surgeries for when she’s released, including a tummy tuck, breast lift and excess skin removal.”

(As The Ashley previously told you, Abby underwent a sleeve gastrectomy a few months before starting her prison sentence. The surgery removed nearly 80 percent of Abby’s stomach!)

Once Abby is a free woman, she will have to figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life. Her reality TV show, ‘Dance Moms’ was cancelled by Lifetime in September 2017.

  1. Baby is a vile, nasty biatch who only cared about herself. Now and then she would “act” like she cared about the girls. She doesn’t deserve any sympathy in my opinion.

  2. Awww, I like Abby Lee Miller. I can’t stand any of the “moms” on that show, but I always loved all the little girls and thought Abby loved them too. I wish her the best. She will land on her feet, for sure.

    1. Me too. I can’t wait t see her after her surgeries. She knew who the talent was and stuck w it. Maddie is an amazing little girl w tons of talent. I watched the show from day one for about 5 season or so. The moms knew how she was so her yelling at the kids is what it took and if the parents didn’t like it or think their kids wouldn’t go far then they would of left. The parents all knew Abby would teach the kids right, and she did. I stopped watching when they kept bringing in a bunch of new people. But I LOVED when her nemesis was on their.. the rotten candy apples. I didn’t like that woman, but it was funny to see them argue…

  3. I just hope she finally fixes Nia’s feet. It was like watching Fred Flintstone doing capoeira. It was wrong of her to continuously let her perform like that.
