Rumor has it that a Kelsey Grammer Father’s Day gaffe led to the break-up of his marriage to Camille Donatacci Grammer. Not so, says the former ‘Frasier’ star. Grammer slams the malicious rumors. Read about it below and see photos and a video.
Veteran actor Kelsey Grammer announced on his twitter page that he and his wife of almost 13-years are divorcing. Grammer’s third wife, Camille Donatacci Grammer, filed for divorce citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. The celebrity website TMZ then reported that the break-up was precipitated because the actor didn’t fly home or call his kids on Father’s Day. Since that rumor has been circulating, Grammer has come out to slam what he calls ‘malicious’ rumors about his divorce.
Camille’s lawyer, Neal Hersh, filed for the divorce on behalf of his client. She is asking for joint legal custody and primary physical custody of the couple’s two minor children. The couple’s children are Mason, 8-years-old and Jude, 5-years-old. Kelsey and Camille Grammer were married in August 1997.
Camille Donatacci Grammer is scheduled to be in the cast of the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ next season. She is 41-years-old and a former Playboy model and dancer.
Kelsey Grammer, 55-years-old, said that the couple have been discussing separation for some time and that he did call his kids on Father’s Day. He said he calls them most nights at 11:00 p.m. (ET) which is 8:00 p.m. in Los Angeles, just before the children go to bed. He went on to say that he was surprised they didn’t call him to wish him a happy Father’s Day that morning, but didn’t think much of it because he is currently working in New York City and was working that day.
Grammer said, ‘Gossip and the rumor mill always thrive during times like these, as in the Father’s Day story. Whatever might be said, I ask that you take the ‘high road.’ I intend to do the same.’
So Grammer slams a malicious rumor that the Kelsey Grammer Father’s Day gaffe even happened, much less led to his wife filing for divorce.
