Phil Collins’ ex-wife Orianne Cevey auctioning off $4M worth of items including singer’s memorabilia after home foreclosure

Phil Collins’ ex-wife, Orianne Cevey, is auctioning off an estimated $4 million worth of jewelry, purses, and precious items that once belonged to the “You’ll Be in My Heart” singer, Page Six can exclusively reveal.

Collins’ personal Yamaha piano, as well as his Wurlitzer Jukebox, are just a few prized possessions being auctioned off by Miami-based Kodner Auction Gallery and we’re told the lot is estimated to be worth $2,987,500 to $4,307,200.

“It pains me to part with these cherished items, but I recently downsized homes and simply do not have room for many of the items,” Cevey, 49, exclusively told Page Six on Friday.

“These are some of our most prized family possessions,” she added, explaining that the Wurlitzer jukebox was gifted to the exes by Collins’ manager when they got married in 1999.

She also shared that the Yamaha piano was their family’s and used by Collins to teach their 22-year-old son Nicholas how to play. Cevey and Collins also share 18-year-old son Matthew.

Cevey is selling the family piano Collins used to teach their son how to play.

We’re told the sentimental piano could sell for a whopping $50,000 to $100,000.

“I am also auctioning off a huge collection of Chanel,” Cevey said, adding, “I was Chanel’s number one client when I started collecting in 2001 with more than 500 pairs of Chanel shoes in my collection.”

Also heading to the auction block are several high-end couture items, including Chanel clothing, shoes, boots, and a large selection of Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry.

“This auction is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire some of the most personal and iconic items from the private collection of Phil and Orianne Collins,” Kodner Auction Gallery president Russ Kodner told us in a statement.

“These items are some of Phil Collins’ most iconic instruments and collectibles, and Orianne’s most prized possessions,” the certified gemologist added.

The auction is scheduled to take place on Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. ET and items are available for online bidding at starting on Nov. 24th.

Cevey — who was married to the Oscar winner from 1999 to 2006 — reportedly had to foreclose on her $6 million Florida home in June and struggling to sell the six-bedroom Fort Lauderdale mansion amid her bitter divorce from third husband Tom Bates. The home finally sold in August for $7.75 million.

Collins subsequently got Cevey and Bates booted from his home and they moved into the Fort Lauderdale mansion, after which things quickly soured for the pair.

Cevey announced their divorce in December 2021, blaming their failed marriage on the pandemic.

However, Bates claimed in court documents obtained by the Daily Mail, that Cevey had a “ferocious temper,” hid his possessions from him, and threatened to cut off his genitals when he asked them to be returned.

Cevey also married Charles Fouad Mejjati, with whom she shares a son, in 2008 and finalized their divorce in 2017.

After their separation, Cevey briefly reunited with Collins between 2016 and 2019 before secretly marrying Bates.

The drummer was also married to Jill Tavelman from 1984 to 1996 and they share daughter Lily Collins, 34. He and Andrea Bertorelli were married from 1975 to 1980 and they share daughter Joely, 51, and son Simon, 47.
