Farewell to Phil Collins

Farewell to Phil Collins: who are the three women in his life?

Accompanied by his mythical group Genesis, Phil Collins said goodbye to music. On this occasion, Here invites you to come back to the women who shared the life of the famous drummer.

A page in the history of music has been turned. On Saturday, March 26, the group Genesis gave its final concert at the O2 Arena in London. After fifty years of making the crowds dance on I can’t dance, Land of Confusion, Follow you follow me, and other hits that have become cults, the band has decided to bow out and gives a farewell to Phil Collins. For many months, doubt hovered over the participation of Phil Collins, drummer, and leader of the group. Because at 71, the artist has many health problems. “ You could say that I am in a way handicapped ”, even conceded the interpreter of Against All Odds in an interview granted to the BBC, he could no longer play the drums.

Yet he was there for the last meeting of the Genesis group with its public. Although considerably thinner and weaker, the father of five even got up from the chair that had been set up for him on the stage. A moment of great emotion for all fans of Phil Collins, which is an opportunity to reflect on the life of the artist. Especially on the women who shared it.

Phil Collins has been married three times

The first woman to have been the wife of Phil Collins is none other than Andrea Bertorelli, a Canadian environmental activist whom the singer married in 1975. Together, they had a son, Simon, born in 1976. On his side, she was already the mother of a little Joely, born in 1972. Between them, things ended because of a sordid history of infidelity. It is in reference to her that the song In the air tonight would have been written. But Andrea Bertorelli, affirms that it is he who would have deceived her. She also confided that their marriage had ended due to her anger toward her husband.

Subsequently, in 1984, Phil Collins married actress Jill Tavelman, the mother of his daughter Lily, born in 1989. Once again singled out for infidelity, the artist separated in 1996, the date of their divorce. Finally, he had a very tumultuous last story with Orianne Cevey, who became his third and last wife in 1999. Separated for the first time and then patched up, the parents of Nicholas and Matthew put a definitive end to their union in the summer of 2019. The beginning of a real war between the two exes. In the press, the businesswoman indeed spoke at length about the dubious hygiene of her ex-husband… before squatting his house! A period that was not easy for the artist, was already greatly weakened.
