Actress Koo Stark, 63, loses multi-million pound battle with her ex to support her for life

The Sun


ACTRESS Koo Stark has lost a legal battle with her ex to support her for life.

Ms Stark, 63, said financier Warren Walker promised in 1997 to give her £50,000 a year.

Payments stopped in 1999 and Ms Stark, Prince Andrew’s ex-lover, took him to court 20 years later.

But a judge has deemed it a “non-binding agreement”.

Ms Stark, mum to Mr Walker’s daughter, said he made the promise in return for her turning down a newspaper column called “Diary of a Single Mother”.

She claimed he was in breach of his promise and another where he pledged to give her £200,000 for a home.

Mr Walker, 60, said he owed her nothing, branding her a “gold-digger”.

After a private hearing, Judge David Halpern QC threw out her claim, saying: “It would not be an exaggeration to say that the parties disagreed on almost everything.”

They even disagreed on how many times they had been engaged, he said, with Ms Stark claiming that three times they had pledged to get married.

He also said Ms Stark had been “living beyond her means for many years”.

The pair met in 1994 and lived in Knightsbridge, West London, before they split.
