dionne-warwick_cc_fc_web.jpgNEWARK, N.J. – Dionne Warwick claimed in a bankruptcy filing that she owes nearly $10 million in back taxes and her monthly expenses exceed $20,000.

The South Orange resident and singer of classics such as Walk On By, I Say a Little Prayer and Do You Know the Way to San Jose filed a Chapter 7 petition in U.S. bankruptcy court in New Jersey last Thursday.

The 72-year-old singer listed liabilities including nearly $7 million owed to the Internal Revenue Service for the years 1991 to 1999 and more than $3 million in business taxes owed to the state of California.

The cousin of the late Whitney Houston also listed $20,950 in monthly income from royalties, retirement income and a contract.
