Their extraordinary romance with Bate which began during the pandemic was sparked by COVID pressures, she said. She said that they met in 2020 through an escort agency and discreetly tied the knot there before relocating to the Miami home that Phil Collins had purchased for himself and Orianne. The couple ended their marriage this year after filing a divorce on December 2, 2021.

The Instagram post caption which was written in french read, "We finally come to the end of this catastrophic year. Definitely one of the worst for me. Alone with my two faithful companions Billy and Tony. No husband for a long time. He was there only out of self-interest and decided to give me a hard time. What trials and betrayals. But the venom of my enemies will not make me give up. I will rise stronger and more serene from my ashes. Never again will I be fooled and tricked! I understand it all too well. I salute my dear friends who supported me in these difficult times and gave me the desire to live again, to fight and to love myself for real. I am so grateful and I love you very much and again a big thank you to my sons Nic and Matt, my mother, to Francois and Loulou, to Olivier, Karen, Gilles, Lis, Valeria, Isabella, Claudio, Stacy, Kevin, Natalia, Sergio, Sophia, Massimo, Maria, Anthea and to all of you. I wish you a very Happy New Year 2023! My half-century vintage! To all our new moments of happiness and health. To our iron friendship which endures against everything. I wish you 365 unforgettable days. I love you sincerely and with all tenderness, I embrace you. Never give up!"

She also extended her gratitude to her friends and family who were there for her thick and thin and vowed "But the venom of my enemies will not make me give up. I will rise stronger and more serene from my ashes". In the lengthy Instagram post she said a "huge thank you to my boys Nic and Matt," the boy is not addressed. She spent Christmas with her sons in Switzerland, where Collins currently resides. Those are her sons with the drummer Phil Collins. In April, she reportedly slapped her son, who was 10 at the time, over the head after he refused to give her the password to his mobile phone. He was subsequently placed in temporary emergency custody. Legal documents from the time state that following a physical altercation with the kid, she later took vodka shots until she passed out.
