Actor Kelsey Grammer’s third wife, Camille Grammer (formerly Camille Donatacci) filed for divorce in a Los Angeles court last week, citing the no-fault grounds of irreconcilable differences. She asked the court for joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their daughter Mason,age 8, and son Jude, age 5, as well as spousal support.
The divorce petition was filed by Camille’s divorce attorney, Neal Hersh. Hersh has previously represented Kim Basinger, Brad Pitt, Pamela Anderson, Eddie Cibrian, Halle Berry and other celebs in their divorces.
Kelsey is currently in New York appearing on Broadway in the musical La Cage Aux Folles, and was recently nominated for a Tony Award. Camille, a former Playboy model, is rumored to be starring on Bravo’s upcoming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Rumors indicate that, since Kelsey went to New York for La Cage, he has been disengaged from Camille and the children – instead wrapped up in his New York life and friends. The couple have been married since August 1997. Their two children were both born via a surrogate.
Kelsey has two other children from previous relationships. His daughter Spencer is 26 and was born to Kelsey and his first wife, Doreen Alderman. His 18-year-old daughter Greer was born during his marriage to Leigh-Anne Cushany – but her mother is Barrie Bucker, not Cushany.
