“I’m sad to give up these maintenance items, but my house has recently downsized and I simply don’t have room for many of the items,” Cevey tells Page Six.
“These are some of the most cherished family possessions,” she said, adding that the jukebox was a gift from Collins’ manager when they were married in 1999.
As for the piano, she says it was her family’s and Collins used it to teach their 22-year-old son Nicholas how to play.
The exes also share an 18-year-old son, Matthew.
“I’m also auctioning off a huge Chanel collection,” Cevey added.
“I was Chanel’s first client when I started collecting in 2001 with more than 500 pairs of Chanel shoes in my collection.”
A large collection of Chanel clothing, shoes and boots will be heading to the auction block, as well as plenty of Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery.
Kodner Auction Gallery President Russ Kodner said in a statement: “This auction is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire some of the most personal and iconic items from the private collection of Phil and Orianne Collins.
“These items are some of Phil Collins’ best-selling instruments and items, and Orianne’s most prized possessions.”
Cevey confirmed that “a large portion” of the money raised will be donated to the Never Give Up Foundation, which helps build a future for people with disabilities like Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
The auction will take place on December 6th and the items are also available for online bidding on Kodner.com, starting November 24th.
