What Happened to Abby From Dance Moms?

March 20, 2024

Abby Lee Miller is no stranger to controversy. The feisty dance instructor and founder of the Abby Lee Dance Company made her name on reality TV shows like Dance Moms, which followed her junior elite competition team, including Maddie Ziegler, Brooke Hyland, Nia Sioux, Chloe Lukasiak, and Paige Hyland. Her emotional outbursts and disciplinary methods often stirred up drama between her students, as well as their mothers. She even landed herself in prison after being accused of bankruptcy fraud and concealment of assets.

Following her release from prison, Abby Lee Miller has continued to push forward in both professional and personal pursuits. She returned to her Lifetime show Dance Moms in season 8, and the cast welcomed her back with open arms — despite the fact that she was still facing legal troubles. At the heart of the case was alleged bankruptcy fraud, with her undeclared income from the show and its spin-offs at the center of the allegations.

Miller also has an expanding business empire, from a dancewear line to her own beauty brand called Kare by Kalani. She also continues to do acting work, most recently starring in the coming-of-age romantic-comedy Swiped alongside Noah Centineo. Her daughter, Kalani, also stepped into the spotlight in 2021 by launching her own fashion and beauty line, Prom Girl. In addition, she's pursuing an acting career and is set to star in a upcoming Netflix film, The Dirt, opposite Matthew Lewis.
