When Phil produced The Ronettes, he went on to marry their lead singer, Ronnie in 1968. The couple had a tumultuous relationship. She accused him of tormenting her during their 4 years together by telling her she was nothing personally or professionally without him, forbidding her to leave their mansion alone, and pulling guns on her.
Spector ended up in prison for the second-degree murder of Lana Clarkson, an actress he’d met in 2003 while she was working at the House of Blues in WeHo. They went back to his mansion, where he shot her although he’d claimed it was an accidental suicide.
His first trial, in 2007, was declared a mistrial. This was due to a hung jury, but he was convicted in a 2009 retrial.
