The third time was certainly not the charm for Phil Collins, who's facing yet another pricey divorce.
After six years of marriage and two children, the musician's former wife, Swiss-born Orianne Cevey, 35, has received a $46.76 million cash payout from Collins, 57, reports Britain's Daily Mirror.
The record settlement Britain's biggest ever in a celebrity divorce tops by some $2 million what Paul McCartney gave Heather Mills earlier this year.
Collins is no stranger to expensive breakups. Second wife Jill Tavelman received $34 million after he ended their relationship by fax in 1994. In all, according to a Daily Telegraph tally, Collins's divorces have cost him $84 million nearly a third of his estimated $280 fortune. Collins and Cevey met on tour in 1994 while she was working as a translator. Their children are Nicolas, 8, and Matthew, 4.
