He’s Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’

He produced albums for the Beatles, Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton, among others. He sat at the studio controls when hits such as "Imagine," "You've Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'" and "To Know Him Is To Love Him" were recorded. And he created the Wall of Sound that dominated much of the 1960s music of girl groups and pop bands. Phil Spector occupied the rarefied air of music genius -- until he committed murder in 2003.

These days the eccentric 76-year-old is housed in a California prison about 100 miles southeast of Santa Rosa. The facility provides medical care to the state's prisoners suffering serious physical and mental health problems. It isn't a place known for generating family law news, but then again, with Phil Spector as a guest, anything is possible.

While Spector's age, declining health and imprisonment suggest that he would live out his days quietly, the fallen icon is not about to fade away. He recently filed for divorce from his third wife, Rachelle Spector, 35.

The pair married back in 2006, shortly before he was charged with the murder of actress Lana Clarkson in his mansion.

Spector says Rachelle -- four decades his junior -- is blowing through his $35 million fortune, spending wildly on luxury cars, planes, jewelry and homes. He also claims that she doles out a mere $300 per month to him while he serves his 19-year sentence.

Her attorney characterizes the divorce filing claims as "heartbreakingly bizarre" and says his client has done the best she could under the circumstances to care for her imprisoned husband.
