Wayne Newton sued over Las Vegas home museum plans
Question of the Day
The Newton family released a statement from Geneva Clark, a partial owner of the museum, who denounced the allegations made by CSD’s manager, Steven Kennedy.
“He is wrongly accusing the Newtons and mismanaging his role of leadership,” Clark said in the statement.
Newton faced various financial woes in recent years. He filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 1992 to reorganize an estimated $20 million in debts, including a $341,000 Internal Revenue Service lien for back taxes.
In 2005, he disputed IRS claims that he and his wife owed $1.8 million in back taxes and penalties from 1997 through 2000.
More recently, sheriff’s deputies were turned away from the ranch home in February 2010 while trying to collect a $500,000 court judgment stemming from back pay owed to a former pilot. That same month, Newton’s billionaire buddy Bruton Smith tried to seize Casa de Shenandoah for repayment of a $3.35 million loan.
