Phil Spector Files for Divorce ... My Wife's Killing Me

EXCLUSIVE

Phil Spector wants a divorce because he claims his wife is bleeding him dry.

In case you didn't know, after Phil killed Lana Clarkson, he married Rachelle Short, who was 26 at the time. They married in 2006, while he was in jail and awaiting trial.

Phil says she is spending like a mad woman, and his examples are stunning. Among other things, Phil says she's bought a $350k airplane and is in the process of getting a jet. He says she bought an Aston Martin and a Ferrari. And it doesn't stop there. She's had expensive plastic surgery, buys crazy expensive jewelry and even bought her mom 2 homes.

And get this ... he says even though his current net worth is $35 million, Rachelle -- a former Jerry's Famous Deli waitress -- gives him a paltry stipend of $300 a month while he serves 19 years to life for Clarkson's murder.

The 76-year-old is asking for a divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. He also wants his daughter to control his fortune.
