Phil Collins Opens Up About Why He Cheated On His Wife

Phil Collins regrets cheating on his second wife, Jill Tevelman.

The 65-year-old rocker recently admitted to being unfaithful to his ex-wife Jill - with whom he has daughter Lily Collins - and described himself as a "b*****d" for cheating on her.

His infidelity was what ultimately led to the end of their marriage.

Speaking to Australia's Sunday Night new programme 'Sunday Night', Collins said the reason he was unfaithful to Jill was because he was following his heart "But it turned out I was being a bit of a b*****d." 

Collins has been married three times - to Andrea Bertorelli, Jill Tevelman and Orianne Cevey. The In The Air hitmaker recently rekindled his relationship with Orianne, saying ""I'm back with my third wife now, which people find strange. But to me, it's wonderful."

Collins recently opened up about his failed marriages in his new biography 'Not Dead Yet'. 

Writing, "I am disappointed I've been married three times ... I'm even more disappointed that I've been divorced three times.

"While three divorces might seem to suggest a casual attitude towards the whole idea of marriage, this couldn't be further from the truth.

"I'm a romantic who believes, hopes, that the union of marriage is something to cherish and last.

"Yet certainly that trio of divorces demonstrates a failure to co-exist happily and to understand my partners.

"It suggests a failure to become and stay, a family. It shows failure, full stop."
