Phil Collins' Ex-wife Battles Second Husband Over House Sale


Phil Collins Genesis

Orianne Cevey, who recently reconciled with Phil, 65, has accused investment banker Charles Fouad Mejjati of fraud.

It is alleged the money man coerced her to sign a marital settlement that gave him rights to the couple's $8.4 million (£5.9 million) Miami Beach home in Florida, which Orianne bought in 2012, a year after they wed.

The celebrity jeweller was recovering from unsuccessful back surgery and was unable to walk when Charles "embarked on a campaign" to sign the marital settlement agreement, which then reportedly allowed him to purchase the home from her for just $100 (£70).

Phil Collins: 'I Was Annoying - I Know!'


Phil Collins Genesis Entertainment Weekly

The British performer is an accomplished singer and drummer, boasting a successful solo career as well as fronting band Genesis. During a chat with Entertainment Weekly, Phil was reminded of his constant presence throughout the '80s. The rocker now readily admits his behaviour may have come across as annoying.

"I realise now that my omnipresence p**sed a lot of people off," he grinned to the publication. "I realise that me being everywhere, and obviously leapfrogging projects between Genesis and myself, meant that I was in your face all the time. I was only having fun. I was just taking advantage of the opportunities that came my way."

He then jokingly apologised to the publication, who previously posted a review with the line: "I’m sure even Phil Collins knows that we’re all weary of Phil Collins."

Phil Collins Genesis

Earlier this month (Feb16), the former Genesis star revealed he had reconciled with Orianne, the mother of his two sons, who he divorced in 2008.

"I'm actually back with my third wife," he told Billboard.com. "I haven't really talked about it. We've been together for a while, and nobody's noticed."

It subsequently emerged that Orianne had started divorce proceedings in January (15) to end her union to banker Charles Fouad, who she wed following her 2008 split from Phil. She also shares a five-year-old boy with Charles and the former couple is currently in negotiations over custody and division of assets.

Phil Collins Grateful Adele Didn't Slay Him In The Press


Phil Collins Adele Genesis

The former Genesis star was one of the people the Hello singer turned to when she was making a start on the album that would become 25, but after sending him some music to work on, Adele never got back in touch.

Collins feared she'd thought better of plans to work with the Against All Odds singer, and worried she would not have nice things to say about him after he revealed they had initially planned to team up.

"She sent me a piece of music that I began working on, but then she was very difficult to find," Phil tells Billboard magazine. "She had a kid - all this stuff was happening to her, unbeknownst to me.

Phil Collins Fractured Foot In Post-surgery Fall


Phil Collins Genesis

The former Genesis star cancelled a number of engagements in October (15) after he was admitted to hospital for surgery, and he has now revealed the operation was to treat trapped nerves which left him in agony.

"I woke up one morning last October with a devastating pain all the way down my right side and I went to this doctor..." he tells BBC Breakfast. "He told me before that my back is shot, my hips are shot, it's from sitting like this for 60 years playing the drums... Bits wear out... My vertebrae were like this (out of alignment)... Trapped nerves. So without really asking he took me in for an operation, which was fantastic."

However, Collins suffered a disaster shortly after the surgery when he fell over and fractured a bone in his foot, and he has since been using a cane to help him get around.

Sting And Peter Gabriel To Embark On Joint Tour


Peter Gabriel Genesis

The Police frontman embarked on a joint world tour with Paul Simon between February, 2014 and April, 2015, and he has now organised a similar trek of North America with former Genesis star Gabriel.

The duo will perform each other's songs and share musicians on the 19-date Rock, Paper, Scissors tour. They joked they picked the title because they will be using the hand game to make decisions throughout the trek.

Sting tells The Associated Press the concept is the same as his tour with Simon, adding, "We traded songs, we traded musicians, we sang together. And the take home that people got from that was they loved it when we did things together."

Phil Collins Brands Jim Carrey Arrogant And Annoying


Phil Collins Jim Carrey Genesis

The former Genesis star admits he is irrationally irritated by the Dumb and Dumber actor and can not bear to watch him onscreen because Jim's full-on personality infuriates him.

Phil told British magazine Event, "Jim Carrey I'm not keen on. I can't watch his films because he's always 'on'. I saw him on the Ruby Wax show - his interview was over and yet he kept coming back on screen, being annoying. Someone with that much arrogance I can't handle."

The musician's remarks came after he was asked who he dislikes most in the world, and he also risked upsetting record company bosses by tearing into an industry accountant.

Jason Bonham Honoured To Be Part Of Phil Collins' Comeback


Jason Bonham Phil Collins Genesis

Health issues have prompted the Against All Odds singer to step away from the drumkit and he has drafted in rocker Jason to take his place.

"We got together for three weeks and I had an amazing time," the son of Led Zeppelin's John Bonham tells Billboard. "It was an honour to be chosen by one of my real heroes.

"Other than my dad, I would say Phil is probably my number two guy to go to. I've been a huge fan since Abacab, and then of course his solo stuff. It was like playing in front of my dad... You're playing in front of your heroes.
