LOS ANGELES – Dionne Warwick, one of the most recognizable pop voices of the 1960s, filed for bankruptcy last week, citing more than $10 million in tax debt dating back to 1991.
"Due to several consecutive years (the late '80s through the mid-'90s) of negligent and gross financial mismanagement, Dionne Warwick has realized the current necessity to file personal bankruptcy," Warwick publicist Kevin Sasaki said in a statement to CNN Tuesday.
Warwick, 72, made hits out of many Burt Bacharach and Hal David songs, and won five Grammys in a 50-year career. The singer is down to her last $1,000 in cash and only owns furniture and clothing worth $1,500, according to the Chapter 7 filing in New Jersey.

We tend to hold our entertainers to the highest standards in the land. We feel that they are above a lot of the issues and problems that most normal people like us go through. We find ourselves surprised when we read news of them having marital issues, family issues or problems with their children. We're really shocked when we read news of them experiencing foreclosure or other financial difficulties. Often times we can't believe that the person who has made us feel so good for so many years is having the same problems we have. How is that?
