Ronnie Spector is reacting to the death of her ex-husband Phil Spector following his passing on Saturday (Jan. 16) at the age of 81.
The iconic Ronettes singer took to social media on Sunday to remember Spector -- who was convicted of second-degree murder in 2009 -- as a "brilliant producer, but a lousy husband."
"It's a sad day for music and a sad day for me," Ronnie, 77, wrote on Instagram. "When I was working with Phil Spector, watching him create in the recording studio, I knew I was working with the very best. He was in complete control, directing everyone. So much to love about those days. Meeting him and falling in love was like a fairytale."
