The singer’s ex-wife claimed she was “sad” and “unhappy” in their mansion which she likened to a “golden cage”.

“I felt like I was trapped in a golden cage,” Orianne explained. “When someone’s depressed, it’s hard to help them out.”

She continued to The Sun: “As much as you love them, why would you keep it up? After years, you get fed up. Phil didn’t take care of himself.

“You feel lonely and you feel like you don’t have anybody you can talk to. I was super-sad and super-unhappy.”

Despite the “beautiful view” at the couple’s Miami home, Orianne claimed she was miserable as the couple hardly went out together.


She said: “You have a beautiful view, but that is all you have. You have no love, nothing.”

Orianne also remarked that she had a very active social life but I was “always on my own”. has contacted Phil Collins’ representatives for comment.

Phil and Orianne had a long history together and the former couple share two sons together; Nicholas, 19, and Matthew, 15.
