A FORMER lover of Prince Andrew Koo Stark will be the first to launch a phone-hacking claim against News Corporation in the US courts, it was claimed today.
Officers from London's Metropolitan Police have reportedly informed the 55-year-old actress and photographer she may have been another victim of the News of the World.
Ms Stark has instructed expert lawyer Mark Lewis, who won £3 million for Milly Dowler's family from the Murdoch empire.
Her advisers believe her voicemails were targeted while she was in America, taking the scandal across the Atlantic for the first time.
This could potentially be hugely damaging to Rupert Murdoch's reputation in the States.
Stark hit the headlines after she began an 18-month relationship with Prince Andrew following his return from the Falklands in 1982.
A scandal blew-up around an soft porn film called Emily which the actress had appeared in.
