“Spirit in the Sky” Songwriter Alleges Elder Financial Abuse

Norman Greenbaum was a one-hit wonder with his 60s song “Spirit in the Sky.” Now the 68 year-old writer is embroiled in a lawsuit, in which he has counterclaimed that a former girlfriend 30 years his junior who is suing him for $1 million in palimony committed financial elder abuse by luring him on the Internet with promises of sex and romance, all for the purpose of separating him from his money.

South Carolina resident Tracy E. Outlaw (the name should have been a hint) moved in with Greenbaum as his “personal assistant”, convinced him to give her lump sums of cash, and according to her palimony lawsuit, promised to make her a one-third beneficiary of his estate, add her name to the title on his house and give her another $100,000 to remodel it. Apparently there was also a buy-out agreement whereby Outlaw would get $150,000 if the relationship failed.
