A group of singers made famous by music mogul Phil Spector are suing the record producer for unpaid royalties.
Members of groups The Crystals, Bobbie Soxx and the Blue Jeans and The Ronettes - including Spector's ex-wife Ronnie Greenfield - 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 on 24 June (08), 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.
