Dionne Warwick has filed for bankruptcy, the New York Daily News reports, with most of her debt stemming from more than $10 million in federal and state tax claims. A publicist for the 1960s and ’70s hitmaker (“Walk on By,” “Say a Little Prayer,” etc.) blamed negligence by former managers for letting things get to this point. Sound familiar? Warwick was the host of an ambitious 2009 inauguration weekend party in Washington that went bust at the last minute, stranding scores of dressed-up ticket buyers. The singer and her publicist said in that case, too, that she was taken advantage of by unscrupulous promoters.
