How rich is Phil Collins?
Phil Collins is one of the most famous musicians of today. Accordingly, it is not surprising that the Briton is worth so many millions of dollars. This fortune can certainly be put to good use by the gifted artist, who is now also a book author. After all, the singer and drummer has five children. However, his three marriages have all failed to last. Phil Collins’ estimated fortune is 300 million dollars.
The star is said to have paid almost 35 million dollars for the divorce from his third wife, Orianne Cevey, alone. The fact that he has no desire to marry again in the future should therefore surprise no one. What is astonishing is that Phil Collins was married to Orianne Cevey from 1999 – 2008. Two sons came out of this marriage. In any case, Collins could easily afford the divorce. As of 2016, the divorced couple lived together again with their two sons in Miami. It makes you wonder why they divorced. Then in 2020, a war of the roses broke out again and the couple separated again, as Orianne married businessman Thomas Bates in Las Vegas. However, she is said to continue to occupy Collins’ $40 million mansions and refuse to move out.
The family life of Phil Collins
The fact that Phil Collins is now living back with the very ex-wife who cost him so much money is probably due to his sense of family. Together with two of his sons, Matthew and Nicholas, Phil is once again living with his ex under one roof – in sunny Miami on the east coast of the USA. Together with his ex-wife, the musician founded a foundation called “Little Dreams” back in 2000. It is concerned with promoting the potential and talents of young people.
Accordingly, he and his ex-wife have much more in common than just love. Incidentally, his son Nicholas shares his love of music. Just like his father, he is a drummer. Since the “Not dead yet” tour in 2017, Nicholas Collins even appears as a drummer in the band of his world-famous father. At the same time, Mr. Papa is even said to be the second richest drummer in the world. At least, that’s what estimates from 2012 revealed, which put Phil Collins’ fortune at $250 million. Ringo Starr is the only drummer who has more money on the side.
Excerpts from the successful music career
More than 250 million records sold speak a very clear language. This British-born left-hander is undoubtedly one of the most successful musicians of all time. Phil Collins initially made a name for himself not as a solo artist, but as a member of the rock band Genesis. In the Billlboard “Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists” ranking, the American by choice made it to number 26. From 1984 to 1989 alone, he had seven number one hits, to which he added a number one award with the band Genesis.
Phil Collins’ net worth
However, his professional heights were for Phil Collins behind the scenes also repeatedly associated with private lows. The artist himself has admitted that he often had far too little time for his family. The failed marriages prove this more than clearly. His alcohol addiction also testifies to the demons that must have tormented Phil Collins deep inside.
But he has overcome this suffering in the meantime and the reconciliation with his ex-wife Orianne should have given wings to his further career. For it was only after he had left these personal lows behind that the star returned after a 6-year break from the stage together with his son Nick. Although the musician has been struggling with health limitations, he has once again toured the world in both 2017 and 2018. We look forward to seeing much more of Phil Collins.
