Phil Collins has sensationally revealed that he is back with his third wife Orianne Cevey, six years after paying her £25million in their divorce – at the time Britain’s biggest ever settlement.
The reunion comes after their highly-publicised divorce in 2008 – and after Orianne married investment banker Charles Mejjati.
The 64-year-old rocker has admitted that he is surprised ‘nobody has noticed’ his reconciliation with Orianne, 42, after living with her for six months in Miami.
The Swiss translator, philanthropist and jewellery designer was left using a wheelchair after she was partially paralysed due to complications with a 2014 surgery to treat a slipped disc in her neck, but she is now walking again after rehabilitation.
Speaking to Billboard, he said: ‘I’m back with my third wife – I haven’t really talked about it. We’ve been together for a while, and nobody’s noticed.’
Collins moved back to America last year from his home in Switzerland to be closer to the couple’s two sons – Matthew, 14, and Nicholas, 10 – after problems with alcoholism, which stemmed from the divorce.
The pair tied the knot in 1999 in a lavish three-day ceremony that cost £300,000, and included guests such as Elton John and Eric Clapton.
Collins was previously married twice before and has spent a staggering £42million on his divorces, Dailymail reports.Do you ever witness anything interesting or exciting?
