Hotel Says Spector Stiffed Them

6/18/2008 9:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Phil SpectorAn L.A. hotel is suing Phil Spector, his wife Rachelle and his agent, claiming they walked out on their more than $100k hotel bill during his murder trial.

In the suit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites says they reserved rooms for the music producer's lawyers and expert witnesses during the trial. After seven months of trial, the hotel alleges, Spector had racked up a bill to the tune of more than $104,000.

The hotel says when they sent a letter demanding to get paid, Spector refused to pay, instead demanding a serious discount.

it sounds like a typical business
practice and an oversight;

if a " guest " stays for an extended period of time,
they thereafter become a " tenant " and should
receive a substantial discount from the daily rate.

the $100 grand outstanding is more than likely
the " perceived " discount on the spector's behalf;
choosing NOT to pay the last bill in the 7th month.

quite obviously, they must have paid for the
seven months concurrently during their stay;

then didn't pay the last amounts with the hopes of
an understanding they would be getting it dismissed.

in reflection, if it was you or i, we would be
paying day by day applied against a credit card....

TMZ, I hope you get sued for showing the credit card info, including the cardholder name, address, phone number and account number. Anyone could do anything they want with that info.

Why did the hotel not require credit card payment day-to-day like anyone else would have to pay? They deserve to be stiffed for letting it go this long.

He sould receive a discount and this matter should/could have been handled more discreeetly. Many people of Mr Spector's stature have had issues with hotels and their billing practices. Payment will be rendered, but, perhaps not to the hotel's liking.

I hope no one is surprised. He stiffed the Groups he's worked with, his Ex-Wife, never helped his Sons, stiffed many lawyers and is trying to sue one now and stiffed several assistence's. Why should this be a surprise to anyone. He'll stiff his current wife too if he gets the chance. He's running out of money so he'll still the Clarkson's too.

This little creep thnks he can do whatever he wants,,and he tries. He is a little murdering creep. Yes MZ BONNIE, someone of his stature: A lowlife thief and killer, we should all be discrete for him, would not want to upset him. Maybe he should pay his bills.

mz. bonnie & maxds;

you're both so right;

these types of businessmen have made
livelihood from these standard practices.

i had a rockstar friend who signed on to a clothing
label and spent the time heavily promoting it.

after it was all said and done, the clothing line siad,
" nothing personal, you'll have to sue us for the $800 grand.

by the time you retain counsel, drag it out through the courts for over a year,
you will gladly take the $75 grand were offering you now to walk away......
