Pellicano Trial Exclusive Audio: Hear Ken Starr's Call

Below is the exclusive audio of a phone call between Anthony Pellicano and Ken Starr. Ken Starr (no relation to the former special prosecutor) was Sly Stallone's former business manager. When Mr. Stallone sued him on Feb. 14, 2002, Starr retained Bert Fields, who recommended that he hire Anthony Pellicano. That month, prosecutors say, Mr. Pellicano wiretapped Mr. Stallone. The played the following recording in court (read about the day in court) in which Ken Starr asked Pellicano to go after Sly. In this tape, Pellicano says "Bert is like my blood." And all kinds of other good things about going after Sly.

It sounds personal...

Highlights:
Pellicano has no idea who Mort Zuckerman is, who has recently parted ways with Starr, after Starr says his name.
