Agency sues Scorsese

Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese was sued yesterday for US$600,000 ($846,000) for bookkeeping costs and other services provided by jailed financial adviser Kenneth Starr.

Starr Investment Advisers managed Scorsese's money from 2006 to 2010, but The Departed director failed to pay the company's fee of 5 per cent of earned income, according to a complaint filed by company receiver Aurora Cassirer in New York State Supreme court.

Starr, 66, is accused of stealing at least US$59 million from celebrities, including Scorsese, actors Uma Thurman, Al Pacino and others.
