Dionne Warwick's money problems mounting

Singer DIONNE WARWICK's money troubles are beginning to mount - she allegedly owes more than $2.6 million (GBP1.6 million) in back taxes to the state of California.

Earlier this year (12), the singer was hit with a federal tax lien from 2009 for just under $1 million (GBP632,751), but on Thursday (11Oct12) the state's Franchise Tax Board released a compilation of the top 500 financial delinquents, and the Walk on By hitmaker was on the list.

According to the 71 year old's publicist, Kevin Sasaki, the star recently worked out a repayment plan with financial bosses and now has the issue under control.

Warwick wasn't the only celebrity on the list - actor Steven Seagal also allegedly owes nearly $350,000 (GBP218,750), according to the Associated Press.
