Today, I’m doing Dionne Warwick Part Two, and I’m glad I did.

 

Bankruptcy

Warwick declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy in New Jersey on March 21, 2013. Due tothe reported mismanagement of her business affairs, she lists liabilities thatinclude nearly $7 million owed to the Internal Revenue Service for the years 1991to 1999 and more than $3 million in business taxes owed to the state ofCalifornia. Unable to work out an agreement with tax officials, she and her attorney decided that declaring bankruptcy would be the best course of action.

 

Relations

Warwick‘s sister Dee Dee Warwick also had a successful singing career, scoring several notable R&B hits, including the original version of I‘m Gonna Make YouLove Me and I Want To Be With You, from the Broadway version of the musicalGolden Boy. She also recorded the original version of the song You‘re NoGood, which later became an R&B hit for the late Betty Everett and also a # 1 Pop smash for Linda Ronstadt.
