Phil Collins, 69, had spent lockdown living with his ex-wife Orianne Cevey, 46, at his waterside Miami mansion when he had received the heartbreaking message. A court filing in the US revealed that Orianne had texted the rockstar that she had “found someone and would like to try to see if I can be happy again”.

Phil's hurt

Phil is believed to have received the text in July shortly before Orianne walked down the aisle in August to guitarist Thomas Bates.

The In The Air Tonight hitmaker and Orianne married back in 1999, but split in 2006, before getting divorced two years later.

They share sons Nicholas, 19, and Mathew, 15.

In 2015 the couple decided to give their romance another chance, although they never remarried.

Phil joked at the time that he had not asked the eye-watering £25 million divorce settlement back that his ex received in 2008.

However, on August 2, Orianne walked down the aisle in Las Vegas after telling the rocker that she was going on away on “business”.

Phil has since learnt that her trip to California was to marry Thomas.

A source told The Daily Mail: “Phil's hurt — just like anyone would be. He's only human.”
