PHIL Collins’s ex-wife hired a male stripper for sex and introduced him to the music superstar, saying: “This is my friend.”
Preston Thompson, 29, claims he had a 14-month affair with Orianne Cevey, 46, after she hired him from an escort agency while she was living with Phil again.
The hunky toyboy says she showered him with gifts, including a £70,000 Mercedes G-Wagon and expensive designer clothes.
She whisked him off on a private jet to the Bahamas and took him as her date to Sir Elton John’s A-list Oscars party, all behind the 69-year-old In The Air Tonight singer’s back.
Preston says she also invited him for secret visits to Phil’s £30million waterside mansion while he was out.
Orianne went on to wed amateur musician Thomas Bates, 31, in August despite continuing to live with Phil and is now battling him for millions in court.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Preston blasted: “Orianne is trying to ruin Phil’s life. He took care of her, gave her millions of dollars, and now she wants more.
“I think she still wants to live that rock star life, but Phil is done with that and has settled down. Orianne’s still young and wants to go out and party with good-looking guys.
“She has treated Phil like he is lower than dirt. She is two-faced.”
Phil and Swiss-born Orianne, who met in 1994 when she was his translator, divorced in 2008 — with the Genesis drummer and vocalist forced to hand her a British record £25million.
But the pair, who have sons Matthew, 15, and Nicholas, 19, rekindled their romance eight years later and moved into his Miami Beach mansion.
However, she is said to have hired former model and part-time stripper Preston through his “companion” agency — called Fantasy Date — in March last year.
They met at the five-star Wynn Las Vegas hotel, where Preston says they had sex after their first date.
Preston, who gets his kit off in private strip shows under the name Bradley because of his likeness to Hollywood star Bradley Cooper, told The Sun: “We hit it off right away. I was introduced to Orianne by her assistants up in a double master suite overlooking the city and was told she had been married to Phil Collins.
“She had a cane in her hand and she wasn’t really able to walk very well because she’d had surgery and she was in rehabilitation.
“We had drinks and room service. I stayed the night there with Orianne.
"She paid a couple of thousand for the companionship that night but didn’t pay me for the sex because my time was over.”
The pair began seeing each other and smitten Orianne treated Preston, who lives in Vegas, to a manicure and even insisted his facial hair was shaved a certain way.
She began lavishing him with money while posing for loved-up selfies.
Preston said: “It wasn’t just a sexual relationship, we actually enjoyed our time with each other. She would also help me out financially. She’d tell Phil she was on business and said he didn’t care.”
Orianne, who shared a Vegas penthouse with him, is also said to have claimed the Songwriters Hall of Fame star has body odour.
Preston added: “Orianne told me they weren’t really together — that it was just for the kids and she was looking for her own place.
“She said that they hadn’t had sex for so long and, although it sounds really messed up, she said that he never showers — he smells.”
And he claimed: “Orianne wanted to have sex all the time, but with younger people than Phil.”
She began buying Preston gifts, including the Mercedes G-Wagon 4×4 and a £27,000 dune buggy.
Preston was called “Mr Collins” by shop assistants.
He said: “Orianne would shower me in gifts all the time. It was all Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana and Dior. Shop assistants would say, ‘Oh Mr Collins, we’ve got this for you’. They knew my exact measurements.”
She is also said to have jetted off with him on trips to the Bahamas, Switzerland, France and the UK.
She took him to Sir Elton’s Oscars party in LA. And in October last year, he actually met Phil when he went to his Not Dead Yet tour gig in Vegas.
Preston — who has also met both of the couple’s children — added: “I was introduced to Phil as just her friend. We shook hands and it was awkward. I had a feeling maybe he knew.
“I asked her about it and she said, ‘I didn’t want to cause any problems backstage, he’s about to go on for a show. I told him you’re my friend but he knows about us’.”
That month, Preston visited Miami and twice went to Phil’s seven-bedroom home while he was absent.
He claims Orianne wanted him to move into the property, insisting it would be fine with the eight-time Grammy winner.
Preston recalled: “She was like, ‘He won’t care, I have my side of the house and he has his’. I’ve been to their house twice — but I didn’t want to stay the night there.”
I didn't want to stay the night.
He also claimed she asked him to marry her four times — the first after just two months of dating.
He added: “I didn’t want to be known as a toyboy. I turned her down again and again. She said, ‘You don’t love me, you’re just here for my money’. But I said, ‘If I was here for your money, I’d have married you the first time you asked!’”
In November last year, Orianne bought a £1.2million house for her and Preston to share in Nevada.
But he said demanding Orianne would fly into rages when he did not want to have sex with her — and was even jealous of his cat.
Their relationship came to an explosive end in May this year after he claimed he caught her cheating.
He says he found texts on Orianne’s phone from another man, who was not current husband Thomas.
Preston says he texted Phil after his break-up with Orianne to warn him but never got a reply
And he was stunned to read that she had got hitched to new lover Thomas in Vegas on August 2.
Phil left the Miami mansion but is now furious after Orianne moved her new hubby in and has refused to leave.
She is now demanding half of the home’s worth.
And Preston added: “If I was in Phil’s situation, I would feel extremely disrespected.”
A source close to Phil Collins said last night: “Phil does remember meeting Preston when he was on tour.
“Orianne introduced him outside of Phil’s dressing room as a fan who wanted to meet him."
On claims of Phil stumbling and falling, the source added: “Phil has a well-documented neurological problem. For her to mention that to Preston is hurtful and a low blow.”
