Legendary singer Dionne Warwick has filed for bankruptcy after discovering she owes more than US$10.2 million in taxes.

Warwick's publicist announced Monday that the I Say a Little Prayer singer cites fiscal mismanagement as the reason she owes so much, according to the Reuters news agency.

Warwick filed the bankruptcy papers March 21 in New Jersey. Most of the alleged "negligent and gross financial mismanagement" Warwick referenced occurred in the late 1980s through the 1990s.

Warwick listed her average monthly income as US$20,950, with expenses totaling US$20,940. Her publicist, Kevin Sasaki, says it is interest that Warwick is left to pay, as most of her back taxes were reportedly paid off.
