Director Martin Scorsese was sued yesterday for allegedly owing almost $600,000 in unpaid fees to jailed money manager Kenneth Starr!
A court-appointed receiver filed the action on behalf of Kenneth, who was busted for running a $59 million Ponzi scheme on his celebrity clients.
The documents claim that Scorsese agreed to pay Starr 5 percent of his income for "accounting, bookkeeping, tax and other personal management services." But he went back on the deal after Scorsese's account manager quit Starr's firm in January taking the director's business to another firm.
Scorsese's rep says his 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."
And that's that!
