Martin Scorsese Slapped With Lawsuit by Incarcerated Accountant


Martin Scorsese


Kenneth Starr who is jailed for embezzling celebrities' money has filed a lawsuit against the director for not being paid during his service.

Martin Scorsese has been hit with a lawsuit after allegedly failing to pay $600,000 - to his jailed accountant Kenneth Starr. The "Taxi Driver" filmmaker has been accused of owing the sum for bookkeeping fees and services provided by financial adviser Starr, who was arrested in May after allegedly embezzling a massive $30 million from stars including Scorsese, Uma Thurman and Wesley Snipes.

Scorsese had agreed to pay five per cent of his income between 2006 and 2010 to Starr Investment Advisors, according to legal documents. Court-appointed receivers for the firm filed the lawsuit against Scorsese in Manhattan State Supreme Court on Thursday, July 8.

A spokesperson for Scorsese tells the New York Post the director's production company "has paid substantial fees to his former business manager's firm, and if it has been determined that there is anything still outstanding, it will be rectified."

Incarcerated Starr has been charged with wire fraud, investment adviser fraud and money laundering amid claims he used stolen cash to buy a luxury Manhattan apartment.
