Abby Lee Miller’s latest trouble is the result of her past actions, and maybe not just the alleged financial ones. This according to her student and “Dance Moms” co-star Kendall Vertes.
During the show’s pre-premiere special on Tuesday, Kendall shared her true feeling on Abby’s issues in Season 6B of the Lifetime series. As previously reported, Abby was indicted on 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud, concealing assets and making false bankruptcy declarations in October, though the show didn’t directly address her legal troubles.
“I’m just gonna say one word: Karma,” Kendall told host Jai Rodriguez when the cast was asked about Abby’s “unscattered” behavior lately. “She doesn’t really have her life planned out yet. She doesn’t know what she’s gonna do.”
Kendall’s comments resulted in looks of shock across the audience’s faces. Jai followed up by pretending to welcome Abby to the stage, only to reveal he was joking, much to Kendall’s relief.
Elsewhere in the episode, Kendall, 13, also slammed her coach for failing to be a proper music manager. After spending her summer working on her music, Kendall said she’s been forced to wait for Abby’s approval to release her new album and single. Her last single, “Wear ‘Em Out,” surpassed Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” on the iTunes music video chart following its release in June 2015.
“I spent my entire summer recording the songs and its sometimes frustrating,” Kendall said, noting how her co-star Nia Sioux, who is not managed by Abby, has released several songs over the past year. “It’s really annoying when you have a manager but they don’t do anything for you and they don’t want to release your music.”
While Abby was absent from the “Girl Talk Part 3” special, she did recently open up about her legal trouble. The 49-year-old Pittsburgh coach discussed her fears surrounding her Dec. 2 court date on the Allegedly podcast Tuesday.
“I’m scared to death,” Abby said, confirming that her co-stars haven’t been there for her. “My support system used to be the moms on ‘Dance Moms’ but not anymore,” she said.
Lifetime is continuing to air “Dance Moms” as Abby’s day in court nears. Fans can tune in to new Season 6B episodes Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EDT. Find out what drama is set to occur in next week’s installment, “Kendall & Nia Face Off,” HERE!
