UMA THURMAN 'CONFRONTED ADVISER' OVER MISSING MILLION

UMA THURMAN reportedly confronted the financial adviser accused of embezzling money from his celebrity clients when she discovered $1 million (£666,667) had allegedly gone missing from her bank account.
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 (27May10) 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 $30 million (£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, realised 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.
The extract, obtained by the New York Daily News, reads, "Starr returned to the room several times to say that (his associate) was unreachable and unavailable by phone or email, (but Thurman had already spoken to the associate, who told her) he did not know the money belonged to her and that he thought it belonged to Starr."
Starr is alleged to have taken money from another client to pay Thurman back.
He has been released on $250,000 (£166,667) bail, and told the New York Daily News, "It will be cleared up." (LR/NYDN/ZN)
