Phil Spector’s Crazy Hair Is Just the Tip Of The Iceberg

April 27th, 2007 // 7 Comments

Getting drunk and pointing his gun where he shouldn’t seems to be a favorite pastime for music producer, Phil Spector, whose murder trial began with testimony from his ex-girlfriend, Dorothy Melvin. Melvin, who was working as Joan Rivers’ manager at the time, claims that she woke up after spending the night over at Phil’s place to find him outside, drunk and pointing a firearm at her car.

“I looked out the front door and [Spector] was outside pointing a handgun at my new little green Mercedes,” said Melvin, a 50-ish brunette who formerly managed comedian Joan Rivers.

“I started screaming at him, ‘What the f— are you doing?’ He screamed back, ‘Get the f— back in the house!’ … He smacked me in the side of the head with his hand holding the gun. At that point, I knew I was in trouble,” she said of the July 1993 ordeal.

After pleading with him, and receiving another blow to the head, Melvin claims that Phil allowed her to leave. Hoping to avoid a media frenzy, she contacted police to retrieve her purse from Spector’s home, but declined to press charges.

I’m sorry, I’m still stunned at the concept that this man is capable of getting dates.

    What is even weirder is that he is attending the trial with a “wife” who he married last fall. I think it must be for appearance sake.

    I have barely followed this story since it’s been going on for so long, but that picture of Phil looks like he’s channeling the late June Alyson. Look her up if you know what she looks like :)

    Lisa! I so agree with you! I cannot understand why anyone would go near that freak, even with his music business reputation. It is beyond comprehension……What is wrong with women?? This lady obviously had a successful career in her own right – must be independant and intelligent – what up wit’ dat??????

    Phil’s people are arguing that her injury was self-inflicted and he’s complaining about how he was arrested. LOL! You can see a bit of the opening statements here:

    While I am enjoying the pageboy, I have to admit, I am really missing the bouffant. That was a doozy!
