Mackenzie claims the only reason she agreed to work with the music company was because Abby encouraged her to.
She says the 50-year-old reality star basically pushed her into the record deal, hyping up the company's credentials.
The disgraced dance teacher is currently serving a 366-day prison sentence for bankruptcy fraud.
After signing on the dotted line though, the aspiring singer claims she discovered the company didn't meet expectations.
