Phil is believed to have received the text in July shortly before Orianne walked down the aisle in August to guitarist Thomas Bates.

The In The Air Tonight hitmaker and Orianne married back in 1999, but split in 2006, before getting divorced two years later.

They share sons Nicholas, 19, and Mathew, 15.

In 2015 the couple decided to give their romance another chance, although they never remarried.

Phil joked at the time that he had not asked the eye-watering £25 million divorce settlement back that his ex received in 2008.

Phil has since learnt that her trip to California was to marry Thomas.

Friends of the popular star who is worth £130million, have claimed that he doesn’t want to pay out anymore money.     

Phil said at the time they gave their marriage another go: “We went back because we realised we had made a mistake. 

“A lot of people don’t have that chance, or don’t give themselves that chance. 

“Our young sons Matthew and Nicholas are like a dog with two tails. I mean, they’re just so happy. 

“They’ve got their mum and dad back together, so it’s a good place to be at the moment.”

Orianne moved to Miami back in 2011 with her second husband Mejjati into a £7 million mansion where they welcomed a son together.

Phil flew out to Miami to support her in her recovery from her back surgery as her marriage to Mejjati broke down.  

The rockstar has also suffered his own health woes and has walked with a stick since he dislocated vertebrae in his neck while performing in the Genesis reunion tour in 2007.
