Phil Collins just got screwed big time. After six years of marriage and two children, Phil's former wife, Swiss-born Orianne Cevey, 35, has recently received a $46.76 million cash payout from Collins. The record settlement is Britain's biggest ever in a celebrity divorce topping what Paul McCartney gave Heather Mills earlier this year by some $2 million. (read more to find out how to donate)
And this is not the first time Phil has had to give away large chunks of his Genesis cash. His second wife Jill Tavelman received $34 million after he ended their relationship by fax in 1994. I guess this guy really is a rock star.
In all, Collins's divorces have cost him $84 million – nearly a third of his estimated $280 fortune. Hot damn, Phil. That better have been some fine lovin'.
I feel so bad for Phil that I would like to officially announce Spike’s Phil Collins Fund. Every time you watch a classic Genesis or Phil Collins video, one penny will be given back to the ‘80s superstar. It should only take about 10 billion views, so get to work people!
Maybe Phil's lady had this...
Or she's one of these...
Hope Phil's not feeling this though...
