Dionne Warwick to be excused from paying debts

Dionne Warwick is set to have her debts cleared after filing for bankruptcy last year (13). The 73-year-old star was declared bankrupt at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newark, New Jersey last year after running up more than $10 million (£6.25 million) in debts due to unpaid taxes.
A bankruptcy trustee filed legal documents on Tuesday (18Mar14) 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 (£625) in cash.
