Phil Collins will take back control of his beachfront Miami mansion from ex-wife Orianne Cevey in January, 2021, according to his attorney.
Collins has been fighting for the property which Cevey is allegedly occupying with her new husband, the Miami Herald previously reported.
According to attorney Jeffrey D. Fisher, Cevey and her new husband have now agreed to leave by mid-January next year, claiming in a statement to the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six that: “Mr. and Mrs. Bates’ plan to hold Phil Collins’ house as hostage to leverage a settlement during a protracted court case was upended by the new judge’s bold decision to complete the injunction hearing next week”.
He added: “With the delay tactic failing, they agreed to vacate by mid-January and to allow Phil’s realtor to market and sell the property between now and the date they leave.”
Fisher also said Collins’ memorabilia, such as his Alamo artefacts and music collection, will be removed from the residence, and she will maintain a 50 per cent interest in the mansion, according to the publication.
“We have no doubt that it too will come to a quick and conclusive end once the judge hears the true facts about what occurred,” Fisher noted in his statement.
The warring ex-couple, who have two teenage sons, were married for nine years before splitting in 2008, a divorce that cost the rocker more than $46 million (£35 million). However, they reconciled in 2016 before separating again earlier this year, after which Cevey married businessman Bates in August.
