Scorsese had agreed to pay five per cent of his income between 2006 and 2010 to Starr Investment Advisors, according to legal documents. Court-appointed receivers for the firm filed the lawsuit against Scorsese in Manhattan State Supreme Court on Thursday, July 8.

A spokesperson for Scorsese tells the New York Post the director's 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."

Incarcerated Starr has been charged with wire fraud, investment adviser fraud and money laundering amid claims he used stolen cash to buy a luxury Manhattan apartment.
