According to the indictment, the dance-instructor-turned-reality-star filed a petition to reorganize her dance studio in 2010, and then made a plan to hide income she earned between 2012 and 2013 from Dance Moms, related spinoffs, “Masterclass” sessions and the sales of merchandise and apparel.
The 20-count indictment claims she made separate bank accounts to hide her income and made numerous false declarations in monthly operating reports.
