(4 August 1984 - 5 December 1996) (divorced) (1 child)
Collins met his second wife, Jill Tavelman, in 1980. They were married from 1984 to 1996. They had one daughter, Lily Collins, born in 1989. Collins openly admits that some of their divorce-related correspondence was by fax (one angry fax, sent by Collins regarding access to their daughter, was reproduced for the front cover of The Sun in 1993), but he denies that this communication took her by surprise. Since the story published in The Sun, the British media has often claimed Collins divorced his wife by fax, something Collins has denied. Collins paid Jill £17M as final settlement.
