Phil Collins Sells Miami Beach Mansion: Phil Collins can breathe a sigh of relief. His ex-wife’s armed occupation of her coastal mansion in Miami is over. Not only that, but the home he sold contains a lot of outrageous memories for private equity billionaire Orlando Bravo and his wife Katy for over $ 39 million.
It officially ends the legal drama with his ex-wife Orion Bates and her new husband. The couple was living in the mansion without Collins’s permission. They even went on to employ armed guards to secure their illegal occupation of property.
Miami Beach, Florida
The 11-bedroom, 10-bathroom mansion is located at 5800 North Bay Road, Miami Beach, Florida. In 2015, Collins paid $ 33 million for the house. The previous owner was Jennifer Lopez. The Mediterranean Revival style house was built in 1929. It is spread over 1.2 acres with 184 feet of private waterfront, a pool, dock and 6,000 gallons of coke pond.
As previously mentioned, Collins’ ex-wife and her new husband were basically squatting at the mansion for several months. He was not allowed by Collins to live there. He was concerned about the possible loss from his career by theft or theft of expensive souvenirs that were kept in the estate. Their lawyers filed a case of unlawful detention and forced entry against the couple in October. Orion had attempted to convince the court that Collins had verbally promised her 50% ownership of the house. She was not successful in this attempt.
Orion and her husband
Orion and her husband, who left her after a month in Las Vegas after she and Collins broke up, bought a $ 5.5 million waterfront home in Fort Lauderdale in January. Her divorce agreement with Collins was about $ 47 million when they divorced in 2008. Orion and Phil were back together in 2016. He is a jewelery designer with his own shop in Miami’s design district.

After a degree in economics and political science from Brown University in 1982, he worked as an analyst in Morgan’s mergers and acquisitions division. Stanley.
Because he was fluent in Spanish, he had access to full-level clients. In 1983, after a year of being underground, he worked on the acquisition of Puerto Rican grocery chain Pueblo Extra International by Venezuelan billionaire Gustavo Cisneros. This experience opened her eyes to the shopping world and confirmed that she was not interested in being a banker.
Bravo then led Stanford to a double JD and an MBA. When he graduated in 1998, he looked for a job at cold-calling financial firms for months. Then, his resume caught the eye of Carl Thomas, founder of Cressey, Rour, a Chicago private equity firm, Golder Thoma. They killed it.
