Things have begun to turn for former 'Dance Moms' star Abby Lee Miller. She was scheduled to report to prison on June 30, but she is not going to jail just yet. The same day she was scheduled to report, her start time was pushed back for another few days.

It was not revealed why there was a delay or why it came on the exact day she was supposed to report to prison. This was just another delay among other delays that caused the case to go on for two years.

On Wednesday, just two days before Miller was scheduled to report to prison, she posted on Instagram a picture of an x-ray of a knee injury she is being treated for.

It is unknown if that was the reason for the delay. Whatever the reason, she was able to be free during the Fourth of July holiday.

Prison sentence

In June 2016, Miller pleaded guilty to felony bankruptcy fraud. She was sentenced in May 2017 to one year and a day in federal prison. As of now, Miller is required to report to a Southern California prison sometimes around July 12. Even that day is not definite for her to start her prison sentence for 20 counts of fraud.

After Miller was sentenced, she appeared on some of the daytime talk shows to talk about her fear of going to prison. However, she concluded that she wanted to get it over with. According to reports, Miller could get out of prison much sooner than one year and a day if she demonstrates good behavior while behind bars.

Lifetime special

Since her sentencing, Miller has been traveling and promoting her company even though she knew she was headed to prison. It seems that she and her team are taking lemons and making lemonade. That's because a Lifetime special is being filmed about the former 'Dance Moms' star. It will feature how she is preparing for her time in prison.

Miller might be in prison, but she will still be on the upcoming season of 'Dance Moms' that was filmed before she quit last March. Her exit from the show will also be part of the upcoming season of 'Dance Moms' with Cheryl Burke as the instructor. Miller's exit is needed to show the transition from Miller to Burke in the second half of Season 7.

The 50-year-old dance instructor had been with the long-running reality show since it began on Lifetime on July 13, 2011. Miller said she quit because she was mistreated and not given credit for her creativity and contribution to the show. She approves of Cheryl Burke taking over as the new dance instructor, and she believes Cheryl will be treated much better than she was treated.
