Phil Collins' ex-wife is spotted out in Miami holding hands with her new younger husband


Legendary drummer Phil Collins’ ex-wife has traded one aging musician for one less than half his age who plays guitar on some of the Rolling Stones’ biggest hits but couldn’t make it in the music business.

Orianne Cevey, 46, has started appearing in public in Miami with her new husband, 31-year-old Tom Bates, after getting married in Las Vegas on August 2 in a ceremony officiated by an Elvis Presley impersonator.

In photos obtained by DailyMail.com, Orianne and Bates were seen wakling into a medical building before stopping for lunch at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, a Miami hipster hangout that serves ‘locally sourced’ comfort food.

DailyMail.com has also dug up videos of some gigs that Bates played in bars throughout South Florida in 2015 in a duo named Two Kings.

When it comes to carrying a tune, Bates might not have the big-time experience of the 69-year-old Phil – yet, he can play.

Alongside fellow guitarist Maximillian Accetta, Bates can be seen playing professionally-sounding riffs and singing renditions of the Stones’ Wild Horses and Miss You, Tom Petty’s Breakdown and The Animals’ House of the Rising Sun.

It doesn’t appear that Genesis and Phil Collins were on the duo’s playlist.

At the time, Accetta and Bates started a company registered in Florida, Two Kings Entertainment.

‘It didn’t last long,’ Accetta said in a phone interview. ‘We were just gigging together for a few months. We had a ball but we didn’t make it.’

The lovebirds were accompanied by a bodyguard who doubled up as a chauffeur as they shopped around on Tuesday.

They headed to a nearby Yves Saint Laurent store for some shopping. 

At one point as they walked in the city, the bodyguard was spotted kneeling down in front of Orianne to tie one of her shoes.

Bates, who splits time between Los Angeles and South Florida, was wearing what appeared to be a wedding band and a custom face mask marked with the letter OC in the same font as the logo for Orianne Collins, a chain of fine jewelry stores owned and operated by the ex-wife of the singer of In The Air Tonight. 

The pair then hopped into a Bentley and rode home.  

It’s reported that Orianne has moved Bates into the lavish mansion she shared with Collins – and he’s currently trying to evict her.

In July, Bates registered another company in Florida, Flashpoint Entertainment. 

It is based in his parents’ home in Lighthouse Point, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, and the company is involved in developing video games.

Bates, meanwhile, has a criminal record that includes a September 2007 arrest for possession of alcohol by a minor when he was 18

Bates was 18 at the time in Florida. 

Underage drinking can lead to misdemeanor charges that can get sentences of one year in prison.

While the case file has been destroyed, remaining court records show Bates was arrested by Tampa Police September 28, 2007.

Bates pleaded not guilty and a month later, prosecutors dropped the case.

Court records listed Bates’ occupation as student.

When asked about Tom’s marriage to a much older woman, his 75-year-old father Douglas remained silent for a few seconds then said: ‘I’m trying to stay polite here, but I cannot make any comments.’

According to reports Collins wants to move Cevey out of his lavish Miami mansion after discovering she had remarried in Las Vegas two months ago, despite telling her ex she was traveling to Sin City on business. 

The furious eight-time Grammy winner is said to be filing an eviction lawsuit against Cevey who refuses to vacate and has changed the security codes at the home.

The Genesis frontman and Cevey, who share sons Nicholas, 19, and Matthew, 15, divorced in 2008, after he paid her a whopping $46 million settlement.

DailyMail.com previously found the official document for Cevey’s wedding which has so riled Collins, showing his ex married Bates at the celebrity friendly Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.

Designer Cevey wed Bates with Elvis impersonator Reverend Brendan Duffy officiating the intimate 20 minute service.

It’s understood the couple walked down the aisle after spending around $3,000 on an exclusive package which has Elvis impersonator Duffy singing three songs, handing them flowers and taking a raft of photos.

Duffy is famous for his links to celebrities in Vegas and recently married Lily Allen and David Harbour from Stranger Things at his famous chapel.

Genesis singer Collins originally split from Orianne in 2006 after six years of marriage, and the two reconciled 10 years later, entering a relationship again after she divorced investment banker Charles Mejjati.

Collins reportedly paid Orianne, a jewelry designer, $46.68 million in their 2008 divorce, money she is said to have mostly squandered.
