NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country singer Lorrie Morgan has filed for bankruptcy for primarily business related debts.
Morgan filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in federal court in Nashville, Tenn., on Wednesday, listing her estimated liabilities ranging between $1 million to $10 million. The bankruptcy filing showed her with assets of $500,000 to $1 million.
The 49-year-old singer released a statement calling the bankruptcy "an unfortunate yet necessary part of the restructuring of my business."
