Phil Collins Selling Mansion at Center of Dispute with Ex-Wife
Phil Collins has reportedly sold his Miami mansion, which is the center of a bizarre dispute with his ex-wife who reportedly has refused to vacate the residence with the man she suddenly married despite still be involved with Collins.
U.K.’s The Sun reports the mansion is currently listed as a contingent sale just days after the deadline Collins’ ex-wife Orianne Cevey was ordered to leave.
The drama around Collins’ Miami mansion is something out of a soap opera. Back in October, Collins attempted to kick Cevey out of the mansion after she suddenly remarried in August while in Las Vegas. Collins and Cevey were married from 1999 to 2008. Their divorce resulted in Cevey receiving a massive settlement just shy of $47 million.
Cevey remarried but divorced that husband in 2016 and got back together with Collins. Cevey’s marriage in August was seemingly out of nowhere and that she told Collins “she was just traveling to Las Vegas for business.”
Later in October, Collins filed a lawsuit against Cevey and accused her and her new husband of “an armed occupation and takeover” of the mansion after they changed alarm codes, blocked surveillance cameras and hired armed security guards to patrol the mansion’s grounds.
While it looks as though Cevey and new husband will eventually leave the Miami mansion, there appears to be a new legal challenge brewing with Cevey claimed she had an oral agreement with Collins that she would get a 50 percent stake in the mansion after she divorced the man she married following her 2008 divorce with Collins.
In other words: This drama is far from over.
