    Dionne Warwick files for bankruptcy: Singer owes over $10 million, has just $25K in assets

    After 50 years in show biz, the singer said all she had to show for it was $1,000 cash; assorted pieces of decades-old furniture; clothes; artwork and paintings; two fur coats, and two pairs of diamond earrings.

    The vast majority of her debt is $10.2 million in tax claims from the IRS and the state of California. She also owes a former manager about $500,000, and ran up a $20,000 Visa card debt, court papers showed.

    Her publicist, Kevin Sasaki, blamed “negligent and gross financial mismanagement” during the 1980s and 1990s for her current financial woes.
    The enormous tax debt came from penalties and interest on back taxes where the principal has since been paid off, he said.

    Warwick, the East Orange, N.J.-born cousin of diva Whitney Houston, burst into the pop charts with a string of ‘60s hits including “Walk On By,” “I Say A Little Prayer” and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose?”

    She listed her average monthly income as $20,950, and her typical monthly expenses as $20,940 — leaving Warwick with just $10 each month.

    She hasn't done anything in years and still makes 20K a month! She can't figure out a way to live on even half of that?

    i dont buy into the "broke" or "poverty" thing.
    IMO its just a way to get out of paying for stuff
