Jailed celebrity Ponzi-scheming money manager Ken Starr is being divorced by his former Scores stripper wife, Diane Passage, the New York Post's Page Six has exclusively learned.

While Starr is serving a 7½-year federal prison sentence, Passage is seeking counsel from a divorce lawyer. Sources say the busty brunette -- who quipped to Page Six in October that she was on the lookout for a new companion and, "Billionaire is the new millionaire" -- plans to file for divorce from Starr next month.

When we asked if she was asking for a divorce, Passage -- one of Starr's most valued assets -- told us last night in an e-mail, "It is true but I can't comment any further."

Scheming accountant Starr was convicted in March of bilking $33 million from clients including Al Pacino, Uma Thurman, Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Martin Scorsese and Lauren Bacall, in part to keep Passage in diamonds and expensive furs.

Starr is behind bars in upstate Otisville, but Passage isn't willing to wait until his release. A source tells Page Six, "She has tried to hang in as much as she can and be supportive. But she's fed up."
