Phil Spector is being sued by his ex-wife Ronnie Greenfild, also known as Ronnie Spector, lead singer with The Ronnettes, for unpaid royalties.
She is one of a group of singers made famous by music mogul – including members of The Crystals, Bobbie Soxx and the Blue Jeans and the rest of The Ronettes – who claim the troubled Wall of Sound mastermind has skipped payments they are due to receive twice a year.
The singers filed suit against Spector in New York according to documents obtained by TMZ.com.
Meanwhile, Spector stands accused of the murder of actress Lana Clarkson, who died at his California home in 2003.
His original murder trial was ruled a mistrial in September (07) when jurors couldn’t agree unanimously on a guilty verdict.
