A judge ruled Wednesday that Phil Collins’ ex-wife will have to sit for a deposition before she’s expected to move out of the musician’s Miami estate.
Orianne Cevey must sit for two three-hour sessions via Zoom or another telecommunications system between Dec. 10 and Jan. 21.
Cevey’s attorneys attempted to have the depositions scheduled for after Jan. 21, when she is ordered by the court to have vacated the manse over which they’re fighting.
A rep for Cevey, 46, declined to comment. A rep for Collins didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
In mid-October, the “Sussudio” crooner, 69, sued to evict Cevey and her current husband, Thomas Bates from the property. Cevey claims Collins promised her half of the $40 million estate, which Collins is desperately trying to sell.
Since then they’ve been locked in a bitter court battle, with both Cevey and Collins ultimately agreeing to have their belongings inventoried before Cevey vacates the premises with anything that might not be deemed hers.
The lawsuit took a nasty turn when Cevey claimed in legal documents that Collins was impotent and didn’t bathe for months, but her “outrageous” claims were later stricken from the suit for their lack of relevance to the estate lawsuit.
