If Wesley Snipes thought this b*tch was gonna help his shiny black azz, he’s got another thing coming. The wife of controversy laden lawyer Ken Starr says Wesley sent some private d*cks to uncover evidence that might help exonerate him from the tax evasion charges that will likely send him to the bing for 3 years.
The pole-dancer wife of accused Ponzi schemer Ken Starr claims private eyes for Wesley Snipes have been stalking her in a bid to find evidence to clear the actor of tax charges.
Diane Passage tells us that two detectives working for Snipes — a former client of Starr, who testified against the actor — followed her from her Upper East Side building dubbed “The Ponzi Palace,” also home to Andrew Madoff.
The buxom brunette said the investigators contacted her lawyer saying they wanted her to help clear Snipes, who faces a three-year prison sentence for tax evasion.
Passage told us, “I was leaving, and I noticed two men trailing behind me. They stood out because they were wearing dark suits on a 90-degree day. They followed me for a block and a half, then I lost them because they were sweating so much.
“They contacted my doorman and my attorney, and said they wanted information that might help Snipes. He was a client [of Starr] in 2000 but before I met my husband. I have nothing to do with his taxes.”
Passage said she was “very worried” about Starr, who was busted for allegedly running a $60 million Ponzi scheme on clients like Uma Thurman and Martin Scorsese.
“Ken’s health is not great at all,” Passage said, adding that Starr had suffered after his brothers failed to bail him out by offering their houses as collateral. “One brother agreed and the other one didn’t. It has been very frustrating,” she said.
“My bank accounts have been frozen, so it is difficult. I’m talking with pay-per-view TV about a pole-dancing competition. I ran one last year and it will soon be screened on a Romanian sports network.”
Snipes is appealing a 2008 conviction for failing to pay $12 million in taxes. He wants a retrial arguing the jury should have been told Starr, a prosecution witness against him, was being investigated.
Sounds to me like someone is using Wesley’s misfortune as an opportunity to get back on the pole and make some money. She hit him with the Ponzi scheme… damn, shorty just made-off.
