Second woman testifies Spector terrified her with guns

first_imgShe said he first approached her with a rifle, and then he picked up a pistol and “he put it all over me, yelling things.” Ogden pointed to various parts of her face to indicate where the gun was pointed. “It was like he was taken over by something. It wasn’t Phillip. … It was a high-pitched screaming voice and the F-word was in there everywhere and `b—-,”‘ the witness said, becoming tearful. “I said, `Phillip, please let me go. Put the gun down,”‘ she testified. Ogden testified that she was terrified. “What am I going to do? He’s going to kill me,” she said she thought. At that point, she said, Spector ordered her up to his bedroom. “Did he try to be intimate?” asked Deputy District Attorney Pat Dixon. “Yes he did,” Ogden replied. “He did it by gunpoint. He wanted to rape me,” she said. Ogden said Spector tried to have sex with her and it was “icky.” “I had never had a sexual relationship with him,” she said. “Did you that night?” asked Dixon. “He tried,” she said. The next morning, Ogden said, she awoke to hear Spector singing in the shower “like nothing had happened.” She said Spector never apologized or talked about what happened. Earlier in the trial, former Spector girlfriend Dorothy Melvin testified that he threatened her with a gun and hit her on the head when she tried to leave his Pasadena home. She said she called police after fleeing but didn’t press charges.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A woman who became close to Phil Spector in the 1980s testified Monday that after being sweet and attentive, he suddenly turned “demonic,” put a gun to her face when she tried to leave at the end of a party, forced her at gunpoint to enter his bedroom and disrobe, and then tried to have sex with her. Dianne Ogden, a veteran music-talent coordinator, was the second woman called by the prosecution to support its case that the famed record producer’s pattern of threatening women with guns led to the killing of actress Lana Clarkson, who was shot through the mouth at Spector’s suburban Alhambra mansion on Feb. 3, 2003. Ogden told of a 1989 incident in which she said Spector seemed to undergo a personality change as she put her purse over her shoulder and tried to leave a Spector mansion in Pasadena after a party. “He was screaming at me – the F-word,” she said. “He wasn’t my Phil, not the man I loved. It wasn’t him. He was demonic. It scared the hell out of me.” last_img
