Report: Phil Collins Breaks Divorce Payout Record in Split From Third Wife

Phil Collins' split from his third wife has landed him at the top of the list for the biggest divorce payout by a British celebrity in legal history, according to the U.K.'s Mirror.

Collins, 57, reportedly paid Orianne Cevey, 35, $46.68 million, topping the Heather Mills-Paul McCartney divorce by $1 million.

The couple, who met while Collins was on tour, announced their separation in 2006.

Collins and Cevey, who was working as a translator at the time, had been married for six years and have two children — Nicolas, 8, and Matthew, 4.

But this isn't the first time Collins' bank account has taken a significant dip. In 1980, Collins divorced his first wife, Canadian-born Andrea Bertorelli. She reportedly ran off with their interior decorator. In 1994, Collins divorced his second wife, Jill Tavelman, paying her $34 million after he is said to have dumped her via fax.

It is estimated that Collins has paid nearly $84 million in divorce settlements to his ex-wives, according to the Mirror.

The Genesis singer recently announced he is giving touring up for good after losing some of his hearing to an ear infection.
