Uma Thurman

The Kill Bill actress is one of a number of stars said to have been caught up in a money-making scheme perpetrated by high-profile investment banker Kenneth Starr.

Starr was arrested by New York authorities on Thursday and charged with wire fraud, investment adviser fraud and money laundering, amid claims he used cash belonging to celebrity clients including Martin Scorsese and Wesley Snipes to buy a luxurious Manhattan apartment.

He is alleged to have cheated his clients out of a staggering £20 million.

Details of the case have now emerged, and in the federal criminal complaint filed against Starr, prosecutors allege Thurman, named only as Client 2 in the paperwork, realized a large sum of money had been transferred out of her bank account and into an account belonging to an associate of the accused.

She then stormed into Starr’s office with her lawyer, and the complaint alleges he tried to stall her, saying he was unable to contact the associate.
