An impartial third party will enter Phil Collins’ Miami home to inventory items belonging to him and his ex-wife, Orianne Cevey, a judge ruled Tuesday.
Collins, 69, is suing Cevey, 46, for allegedly refusing to move out of his waterfront estate after secretly marrying a man named Thomas Bates.
Collins, who has temporarily relocated to his house in Switzerland, is seeking a temporary restraining order against the couple, who married in Las Vegas in August. He’s also looking to protect his personal belongings that remain inside the Miami house.
During the Zoom hearing, attorneys for Collins expressed concern over his collection of artifacts from the Battle at the Alamo, his music collection, his piano, his clothes and family photos.
“His clothes, his photos, all of his personal effects are there,” Collins’ attorney stated. “He didn’t move out. He went away.”
Miami-Dade County Court Judge Stephanie Silver recommended an independent party enter the house and inventory everything and said both Collins and Cevey could have representatives present to help decide what belongs to whom. Judge Silver still has to sign the court order on the matter.
In regards to Cevey residing in the home, the case is still pending.
In Collins’ lawsuit, the “In the Air Tonight” crooner claimed Cevey and Bates took control of the property “by a show of force” with armed guards who are surrounding the property. He also claimed that the new couple changed the home’s security codes.
Collins and Cevey were married from 1999-2008. They share two sons together, Nicholas, 19, and Matthew, 15.
