Phil Collins. A resident of the canton of Vaud, the British pop star moved to Switzerland in 1997 where he married his third wife Orianne Cevey, who is mother to his two sons. The couple announced their separation in 1999 and last year Collins announced the sale of his wife's mansion in the village of Begnins, the former residence of motor racing star Jackie Stewart. Collins has since moved to the nearby municipality of Féchy.
