New York: Diane Passage, the wife of alleged Ponzi schemer Kenneth Starr, was a stripper at strip club Scores some years ago, it has emerged.

Passage used to work at an advertising agency by day and danced for money by night in a bid to support her son as a single mom, reports a news daily.

This was before she married Starr, more than 30 years her senior, and reinvented herself as a socialite film and music producer.

Passage, who performed under the name "Chase" at Scores, is now organising a nationwide pole-dancing contest.
