Music star, Phil Collins has revealed that himself and his ex-wife, Orianne Collins, have re-united six years after their divorce. He said, although the reunion was unnoticed by the press, they have lived together in Miami for six months already. Speaking to Billboard about his alcohol addiction, the former Genesis band member said he is fine and has started a new life with his third wife, Orianne. The couple married in 1999 and had two sons, Nicholas and Matthew, together before they separated in 2006 and went ahead to finalise their divorce in 2008. After their split, Phil continued to live in their home in Switzerland, while his wife and their children relocated to Miami.
“I had retired to be with my kids in Switzerland, but then they left to go to Miami with their mum.” By his own admission, he fell into darkness, drinking too much and spending “way too much time horizontal”. “It started to be bad for my body,” Phil confessed. “I almost died. My organs were beginning to shut down.”
During the interview, the singer was also asked about why he didn’t end up appearing on Adele’s new album 25.
“She sent me a piece of music that I began working on, but then she was very difficult to find. She had a kid – all this (personal) stuff was happening to her, unbeknownst to me. I sent her an email asking, ‘Am I waiting for you, or are you waiting for me?'” he said.
“I found out she’s a bit of a ghost – (One Republic’s) Ryan Tedder told me that. You may not hear from her for a while. So nothing came of it. I was very pleased to hear (it), because she’s being asked about this with the release of her new album, that she said, ‘It was too early, and I was too scared.’ That’s better than ‘He was terrible.’ I was very grateful for her gentle way of looking at it.”
