Net Worth

Dionne holds more than five decades of her singing career, but her net worth is in the minus figure. As per Celebrity Net Worth, Dionne has the estimated net worth of -$10 million. 

Her life hasn't always been blissful like her songs. She was filed for bankruptcy of a massive $10 million in 2013. Sadly, the singer who used to earn more than seven digits in her peak time had only assets of $24,000 during the allegations.

During the 20th century, with her greatest hit songs and music, Dionne was counted as one of the wealthiest singers in the industry. In her career, she has received five Grammy Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame award, more than sixties singles reaching on the top list, albums selling more than 100 million copies and many more.

Now, her fortunes seem to have progressed as she has been doing a tour and concerts in many places. As of 2019, she has been touring to Las Vegas, Detroit, Atlanta, Elkhart, and Modesto.

Married, Husband

Unlike others, Dionne has a record of marrying two times with the same person. She married William Elliot, an actor of Adam-12 in 1966. But their relationship couldn't even last for a year, and they divorced in 1967.

Surprisingly, both felt the absence of one another and re-married in 1967, just after three months of their separation.

However, she and her then-husband William could not continue their fairytale romance forever. Sadly, the second marriage of them also crumbled apart and didn't turn out to be on their favor. This time, it only lasted for eight years, and they divorced from each other in 1975. 

After eight years of their separation, her ex-husband William died on 30 September 1983, and they didn't get a chance to patch up.

After William, Dionne got linked with Sascha Distel, Gianni Russo, and Philip Michael Thomas. But none of them were able to allure her heart.


In the course of her marital relationship with her late husband, Dianna and William welcomed two children, both sons. They first greeted David Leland Elliott on 18 January 1969 and embraced Damon Elliott on 21 March 1973.
