Settlement: The Genesis singer tried to stop his ex from suing him for half of their former Miami Beach home, but a judge has ruled the case can go ahead

Orianne’s lawyers plan to depose Phil on camera in December when he returns from his Genesis comeback tour, The Last Domino.   

She has recently made a slew of unpleasant claims in previous filings, alleging the Grammy winning musician started drinking heavily and popping prescription pills, failed to brush his teeth for months, stopped showering, became ‘depressed’, ‘abusive’ and ‘incapable of having sex’.

Her lawsuit is an attempt to obtain 50% of the house from Phil, which she claims that he verbally promised to her.
