Evil killer Phil Spector is celebrating a money victory from behind bars.

The shamed music mogul scored a cash win over ex-wife Rachelle over his spousal supports.

His lawyers managed to slash $13k a month from his payments.

Spector, 78, was originally ordered to pay his former wife Rachelle $37,500 a month in temporary spousal support and $14,419 per month to cover martial residence expenses.

His lawyers were able to successfully argue those amounts down to $33,000 a month for spousal support and $5,885 a month for the home costs.

His former wife filed an appeal shortly after accusing the judge of making an error when he ordered to lower the monthly support.

Spector pleaded with the court to deny her appeal and keep the support amount the same.

He also accused her of failing to pay over $700,000 in taxes for him.

In May the State of California appellate court came back with its decision and sided with him – confirming the lower court decision saying the judge did not make an error.

Spector filed for a divorce from Rachelle following 10 years of marriage after the couple got married while he was in jail awaiting trial on murder charges.

The famous producer is currently serving a 19-year prison sentence for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson back in 2003.

He has an estimated net worth of $35 million following a glittering career.
