(Newser) Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller says she has quit the Lifetime reality series ahead of her scheduled May sentencing on federal bankruptcy fraud charges. Miller posted on Instagram on Sunday that she will no longer take part in the show. She says that she has "asked, begged, and even demanded" creative credit for her ideas for the show for six years, but hasn't received it. She writes, "I don't have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people's children successful! I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED - DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT!"

A&E Networks, which includes Lifetime, declined to comment on the post. Miller pleaded guilty in June to hiding about $775,000 from a bankruptcy court after filing for Chapter 11. She's set to be sentenced in Pittsburgh on May 8, reports the AP.
