Collins: I am better off on my own

Phil Collins has vowed to never marry again.

Despite being very happy in his relationship with newsreader Dana Tyler, the former Genesis star - who has been married three times, to Andrea Bertorelli, Jill Taverman and Orianne Cevey – has no plans to ever tie the knot again.

He said: “She’s a very sweet girl, sweet lady but I’m not going to get married again. I think I’m better off on my own.”

The 59-year-old singer – who now lives in Switzerland so that he can be near his sons Nicholas, nine, and Matthew, five, from his marriage to Orianne – also revealed he has such a good relationship with his ex-wives that he often goes out for dinner with all three of them.

He added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I’m very proud of the fact that we go out and sit at the same table. It’s what life should be like. And it often isn’t, because people take sides, Whatever happened, happened and it wasn’t one person’s fault.”

Phil’s reluctance to marry Dana could be due to his recent declaration he is still in love with Orianne.

He said: “We are very much in love with each other actually. The fact is the divorce never should have happened.”
