Phil Collins accepts offer to sell his £29m six-bed mansion days before cheating ex-wife’s deadline
Phil Collins has accepted an offer to sell his heartbreak mansion – days before his cheating ex-wife’s legal
deadline to quit the waterfront home. The singer’s spectacular £29.3million six-bedroom Miami Beach property
is now being listed as a “contingent” sale, meaning a deal has been struck in principle.
It comes as Phil’s ex Orianne Cevey, 46, and new toyboy husband Thomas Bates, 31, must quit the battleground
mansion for good yesterday.
The sale will finally close one chapter in the pop legend’s astonishing battle over the home – which his lawyers
allege was subject to an “armed takeover” by Cevey.
But he still faces a ferocious court fight over Orianne’s claim to half the proceeds.
Removal trucks were spotted earlier this month carting her belongings away after a judge ordered her out.
Genesis legend Phil hasn’t set foot in his mansion since last September after learning of Cevey’s secret Las Vegas
wedding to the former cover band musician.
He bought the place for £24million in 2015 and lived there with Orianne after they reconciled following their
2008 divorce. The Hello, I Must be Going! singer believed they were a couple.
Phil gave Orianne a written notice on August 6 last year to leave the mansion set on 1.2 acres by September 30.
Latest court papers reveal that was before he learned she had wed Thomas in an Elvis-themed ceremony in the
Graceland Wedding Chapel.
