The feds aren't impressed with Abby Lee Miller's moves.

The Dance Moms star has been charged with hiding $775,000 worth of income gained from her Lifetime reality show and spinoff projects during her Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Federal prosecutors in Pittsburgh announced the bankruptcy fraud indictment Tuesday against the reality headmistress, whose real name is Abigale Lee Miller.

According to the 20-count indictment, Miller, 50, filed a petition to reorganize her dance studio in 2010, and then allegedly devised a plan to defraud the bankruptcy court by lying about money she earned from her TV deals and Masterclass studio sessions and apparel and merchandise sales between 2012 and 2013.

The indictment also alleges that Miller secretly created bank accounts to hide that income, which totaled more than $755,000 and, as a result, gained better terms to restructure her debt.

"Criminal prosecution is appropriate when debtors corrupt the bankruptcy process through deceit and lies before the court," said U.S. Attorney David J. Hickton in a statement.

If convicted, Miller faces up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,000 for each count of the indictment. Miller has referenced shooting Season 6 of Dance Moms on her Instagram account over the past month.

USA TODAY has reached out to Lifetime for comment.
