Dionne Warwick is set to have her debts cleared after filing for bankruptcy last year.

The 73-year-old vocalist was declared bankrupt at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newark, New Jersey last year after running up more than $10 million in debts due to unpaid taxes.

A bankruptcy trustee filed legal documents on Tuesday requesting that Warwick be excused from paying off the bill, which dates back as far as 1991.

If successful, she will also be able to keep her personal assets including furniture, artwork, diamond earrings, fur coats, and $1,000 in cash.

    I’m glad she’s getting off because she’s just too old now to try an hit the road and earn enough to pay off that debt. But I implore all other black celebrities out there to pay their taxes. It hurts to give up that money but there’s no other choice if you want to keep your assets and your freedom!

  2. after all the sweet sounds she made and the people she entertained, you’d think the people who listened to her, would do the right thing, and they did, amen
