What Is Phil Collins’ Net Worth?

Phil Collins has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide between his solo career and being a member of the band Genesis - and he's got a net worth to reflect it.

Born on 30th January 1951 as Phillip David Charles Collins in London, Phil Collins turned 70 on his birthday in 2021 and shows no signs of slowing down, having been on another Genesis reunion tour in late 2021.

What is Phil Collins' net worth?

Phil Collins is estimated to be worth an eye-watering $300 million (£218 million) in 2021. His career spans more than six decades and he started acting and playing the drums at the age of five.

Collins' music career really began in the 1970s when he joined the band Genesis as a drummer, later becoming the lead singer in 1975.

In the 1980s, his solo career took off, which was inspired by a combination of his marital breakdown and love of soul music. In 1985, Collins set a record by being the only artist to perform at both Live Aid concerts.

It was also during this decade that he picked up his acting career again, appearing in Miami Vice and starring in the film Buster.

Collins left Genesis in 1996 to focus on his solo career. He wrote the songs for Disney's Tarzan in 1999 and the soundtrack 'You'll Be In My Heart' won him an Oscar for best original song. Of course, he's known for his hit 1981 'In The Air Tonight.'

Collins reunited with Genesis in 2007 and has been on several reunion tours with the group since. In September 2021, fans were concerned after he admitted that he wasn't in the best of health.

Who is the richest member of Genesis?

Phil Collins is the richest member of Genesis and one of the best selling artists of all time. He's one of only three artists to sell more than 100 million records, along with Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson.

Is Phil Collins still married?

Phil Collins has been married three times. He married his first wife, Canadian-born Andrea Bertorelli in 1975. Apparently, they were childhood sweethearts. Collins had one child with Bertorelli, as well as taking on her daughter Joely (born 1972) from a previous relationship. Simon Collins was born in 1976. Collins and Bertorelli got divorced in 1980.

In 1984, Collins married his second wife, American Jill Tavelman. They have one daughter together who was born in 1989, Lily Collins, who is the star of Emily in Paris. Collins and Tavelman got divorced in 1996.

In 1999, Collins married his third wife, Orianne Cevey, who was his interpreter while on tour in Switzerland. They had two sons: Nicholas (born April 2001) and Matthew Collins (DOB unknown). Collins and Cevay got divorced in 2006 and Collins paid £25 million to Cevay, which was the largest celebrity settlement recorded in British history.

Collins has had relationships since the final divorce, but he hasn't married to anybody else.
