Dionne Warwick, the Grammy winning performer who had a string of mega hits throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s, has filed for bankruptcy, claiming debts of $10.7 million, RadarOnline.comis reporting.

The 72-year-old filed last week in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newark, listing just $25,500 in assets, and claiming the grand total of $10 a month after covering her expenses, according to the New York Daily News.


The bulk of Warwick’s staggering debt stems from unpaid taxes — and her publicist, Kevin Sasaki, has blamed “negligent and gross financial mismanagement” for his client’s credit Armageddon — explaining that the debt comes from penalties and interest on back taxes that have since been settled.

In addition to owing the IRS, Warwick is also in the hole to a former manager for $500,000 and has credit card debt of around $20,000.


The singer, whose hits include the classics, Do You Know the Way to San Jose?I Say A Little Prayer and Walk On By, lists her average monthly income as $20,950 and outgoings as $20,940 — with assets of two pairs of diamond earrings, two fur coats, furniture, clothes, artwork and a measly $1,000 in cash.
