Three times married music producer Phil Spector has filed for what will probably be his last divorce, from behind bars in a California state prison, says MailOnline.

The 76 year old, who was previously married to Annette Merar of Spector’s Three and Ronnie Bennett of the Ronettes, went on to marry wife number three, Rachelle, ten years ago. Only one month after the wedding, he was found guilty of the second degree murder of actress Lana Clarkson at his Californian mansion and in 2009 he was sentenced to serve 19 years to life in prison. Since he will be at least 88 by the time he is released, it may be unlikely that he will ever experience life on the outside again.

40 year old Miss Clarkson was shot in the head at Spector’s home in 2007 with his defence team claiming that she had in fact killed herself after becoming distraught by her flagging career. The first jury was unable to come to a decision but in 2009, a second jury found him guilty.

Since being incarcerated, Spector has become concerned about the seemingly large amounts of his money being spent by 35 year old Rachelle. Although she insists that she has spent several thousands of dollars from his $35 million estate on his medical and dental bills, he has revealed that she is giving him a regular allowance of only $300 a month.

In the meantime, he says he has been told that his wife has splashed out on a number of luxury items including two homes for her mother, expensive jewellery, a Ferrari and an Aston Martin. It is claimed that she also recently spent $350,000 on an aircraft as she has a pilot’s licence, although she insists that this purchase was made so that she could visit her husband in prison more easily.

Spector has subsequently filed for divorce and asked that his daughter, Nicole Audrey Spector, whose mother was Spector’s former assistant, be placed in charge of his financial affairs in the interim.

I had a 30-minute consultation with Samantha Jago where she clearly explained all my options and followed up with a detailed email of notes. I would highly recommend if you need help to clarify where you stand and getting options for how you move forward.

I recently had a one hour pro bono consultation with Samantha Jago. I was really blown away by how much she was able to digest in such a short period of time and even more so by the report which I received shortly after.

I had applied for a free consultation and I was contacted in a very short timeframe. Thank you so much for the insightful and thorough consultation, Kevin Danagher. You made me feel at ease and you provided clear expectations with the initial info I had provided... I have now a much better understanding on my query.

We had a very useful first consultation with Amber Matheson today. Amber took the time to understand our (somewhat complicated) set-up, and offered good, understandable advice on next steps. She followed up with a very thorough email clarifying what we had discussed. Highly recommended.

I only had my initial free review with Amelia yet I already feel much more strengthened in my legal and financial position. I am currently reflecting on the steps I want to take to negotiate my desired outcome of the financial settlement but, when I am ready to use the services of a lawyer, Amelia is definitely the top on my list.

I had a zoom consultation with Lauren Moir and she was incredible. Very patient, insightful and reassuring. She also advised me based on my previous conversations with another firm and also clarified various positions I am in. Highly recommend.
