Phil Spector's wife Rachelle still vehemently defends her husband's innocence, but she says the new HBO movie based on Phil's trial isn't helping her case.
PICS: Candid Celeb Sightings
Phil Spector, 73, is serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life for the shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson. The David Mamet-directed HBO film (in which Al Pacino plays the former music producer) leads with the disclaimer that the story is a work of fiction, but Rachelle, 32, feels as if the story was one-sided.
"They have him as a foul-mouthed megalomaniac and they depict him as a minotaur -- like he draws people into his labyrinth and he locks them in and won't let them out," said Rachelle, who became a licensed private investigator to work on her husband's behalf. "This guy couldn't hurt a fly. He had no gunshot residue on him at all. He was wearing white, and if you're in the vicinity of an intraoral gunshot wound -- which is actually like running a semi in your mouth; it's like 5,000 pounds per square inch of pressure -- you would have blood, tissue and particles. Her two front teeth were actually ejected to the top of the stairs. There was nothing on him."

Rachelle has been with Phil for nearly a decade and continues to visit him every weekend.
"We spend five-six hours together holding hands," said Rachelle. "You're allowed one hug, one kiss. We eat and we talk and sometimes we just hold hands and try to take a nap together."
Rachelle is set to release a single, PS I Love You, as a tribute to her husband Phil. The song will be available on iTunes March 18. The HBO movie Phil Spector airs March 24.
