Dionne Warwick Files for Bankruptcy

March 26, 2013

Entertainment icon Dionne Warwick has filed for bankruptcy, claiming she owes 10 million dollars but has assets of only 25,000 dollars, according to celebrity news TMZ on Tuesday.

The singer, whose hits include Walk On By, Do You Know the Way to San Jose and Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, said she earns almost 21,000 dollars a month, but spends all but 10 dollars. Her expenditures include 5,000 dollars in housekeeping and 4,000 dollars on a personal assistant.

Warwick, 72, a 5-time Grammy winner, owed most of her debt to tax authorities, the report said.
