“Everything was a surprise, and no woman wants live children as a surprise.”
In another interview with Vice, the late rock and roll icon explained,
“When I was married before [to Phil Spector], it was, “Here’s some kids, Merry Christmas.”
“I got a set of twins for Christmas! I couldn’t handle it. It was way over my head. I had an adopted son already home and then to get five-and-a-half year-old twins—it was a big box.”
After Phil Spector’s such unusual doings, Ronnie’s mother told her to leave Phil and the mansion. The late artist recalled,
“I knew, if I didn’t leave, I would die. That’s weird to say, but it’s the truth.”
She subsequently came back to her hometown in New York and resumed her musical journey. After their divorce was finalized, Phil got full custody of their kids.
