In the Air Tonight: Phil Collins Headed to the Cleaners

Don't be too surprised if Phil "Sussudio" Collins heads into the stu-stu-studio to make a new album soon - maybe another Disney soundtrack a la


- or calls up his old Genesis mates for an encore to last year's "farewell" tour. Its 13-date North American leg skipped Houston anyway, so that would be cool - I always did like "Land of Confusion."

Collins, 57, has agreed to pay third wife Orianne Cevey £25 million - or around $46 million - in what UK Web site Digital Spy calls Britain's biggest-ever celebrity divorce settlement: "He is now estimated to be paying nearly a third of his rumored £140 million fortune ($260 million) to his former partners." The couple married in 1999 and have two children.

Genesis, "Land of Confusion" - this freaks me out every time I watch it.

Collins agreed to a £17 million ($31 million, using the current exchange rate) settlement with second wife Jill Tavelman in 1994. Rocks Off did a little digging and found some more rock-star divorce dirt after the jump.
