Celebrities who got scammed
What happened: Thurman was taken for $1 million by financial adviser Kenneth Starr. Starr had been hired to handle various aspects of her finances, and, it was later discovered, took around $33 million from his clients to give his ex-stripper wife a rich and famous lifestyle.
But when Thurman learned of her own seven-figure loss, she confronted the slippery manager, who repaid her the very next day -- with money he took from other clients.
The conclusion: Starr clients who noticed something didn't seem right and subsequently got out early include Mike Nichols, Nora Ephron, Martin Scorsese, Al Pacino and Neil Simon. "Annie Hall" and "Jersey Boys" writer Marshall Brickman, and jeweler to the stars Jacob "The Jeweler" Arabo, were reportedly not so lucky. Starr was recently sentenced to 90 months in prison.
