ALONG WITH THREE BEAUTIFUL SOLOS! I don't have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people's children successful! I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED – DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT! #dancemoms #season7 #ALDC #aldcalways #newbeginnings #aldcla #alllovedancecourage

The outlet notes that Dance Moms’ network, Lifetime declined to comment about Miller’s Instagram post. On the other hand, Fox News reports that an insider reveals that the instructor’s “latest temper tantrum” is nothing new for the network.

Furthermore, the insider said that Miller does this kind of rant “all the time.” The latter report notes that the network’s executives still plans to air Dance Moms Season 7 filmed episodes despite the instructor’s announcement.

Abby Lee Miller’s Fraud Case Update

Miller’s issue with Lifetime’s executives is just one of the many problems she has to face. The outlet notes that on May 8 or 9, the ALDC owner will know whether she needs to serve her sentence behind bars or not. The source notes that Miller pleaded guilty to various charges of fraud and violating currency reporting laws last June 27.

Prior to this, the publication reports that federal prosecutors want Miller to serve a couple of years in prison for her fraud charges. Miller’s lawyers noted that since their client is a first-time offender, she should get a probation for the fraud charges filed against her.
