There's been an unexpected development at the very last minute in Abby Lee Miller's fraud case, with her sentencing trial cancelled.
The Dance Moms mogul is facing the very real threat of jail time after pleading guilty, but with only 24 hours to go until it was to be decided, the judge has cancelled her date in court.
Deadline reports, 'Pittsburgh-based Judge Joy Flowers Conti pushed the hearing off the schedule. “The sentencing scheduled for 2/24/2017 is cancelled. The sentencing will be rescheduled by further order of court.”'
The reasoning behind this isn't known, but the case has been delayed previously and Miller's team reportedly have requested the next earliest court date.
In an unprecedented move for a guilty party, Miller has also been cleared to leave the country to fly to the UK for work.
But given that Miller is facing up to 2 and a half years in prison, this leaves the future of Dance Moms up in the air.
She confirmed this to The Chronicle while in the UK, saying,"It’s our show, it’s my team.. While many other dance shows have different contestants and different hosts it's just us, it's the ALDC (Miller's dance company).
“I don’t know if with this network and with this show they know what to do with it. Especially the production company. They’ve never had a show go more than one season and now they have this on their hands and they don’t know what they’re doing. I need Ron Howard or somebody to step in!”
Miller also hinted that she has a plan in place for making sure her dancers get their training completed if the show does get cancelled: "There’ll always be dance and there’ll always be ALDC.”
