Dionne Warwick Says She Most Certainly Will Not Be Performing at RFK Jr Fundraiser, Knows Nothing About It


Stories in the Daily Mail UK and more recently in claimed that famed singer Dionne Warwick would be performing at a fundraiser for Robert Kennedy Jr.

Warwick says absolutely not, and she doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

The stories claim actor Martin Sheen and opera over singer Andrea Bocelli are involved, too. They have not responded.

But Warwick is adamant. “I don’t know anything about this event. I did not agree to it and I certainly won’t be there,” she said on Twitter X.

What about the others? Sheen seems to be an unlikely choice. He’s too smart to get involved with conspiracy theorist Kennedy.

The announcement came from an organization called American Values. It’s run by a guy named Tony Lyons who owns a last resort publishing company Skyhorse Books. He’s published Kennedy’s nonsense about Dr. Anthony Fauci , and so on. Lyons made the announcement on Twitter X around December 29th. But now he’s erased all mention of it from the American Values site and Twitter account. There’s no mention of it on Kennedy’s account either.

The fundraiser, also a 70th birthday party for Kennedy, was supposed to take place on Jan. 22 in the wealthy resort town of Indian Wells, California. My guess is no one cleared it with the so-called guests, they freaked and it had to be pulled.

Stay tuned for updates. If anyone knows what’s going on, email me at
