Substance abuse
Grammer began drinking at age nine[26] and became a frequent abuser of alcohol. In 1988, he was sentenced to 30 days in jail for drunk driving and cocaine possession. He was again arrested for cocaine possession in August 1990 and was sentenced to three years' probation, fined $500, and given 300 hours of community service. In January 1991, he was given an additional two years' probation for violating his original probation through additional cocaine use. In September 1996, he flipped his Dodge Viper while intoxicated and subsequently checked in to the Betty Ford Center for 30 days.


BLAME EVERYONE ELSE
Grammer suffered a heart attack on May 31, 2008. He told Jay Leno on the July 24, 2008, airing of The Tonight Show that he had to wait one and a half hours for paramedics to arrive. He was hospitalized in Hawaii after he had symptoms while paddle-boating with his wife, Camille.[28] He was released on June 4, 2008, and was listed as "resting comfortably" at his Hawaiian residence.[29] Seven weeks after his attack, Grammer told Entertainment Tonight that, although at the time his spokesman described the attack as mild, it was in fact more severe, almost leading to his death, as his heart had stopped.[30]

Grammer blamed Fox's decision to cancel his TV sitcom Back to You for his health problems, stating that "It was a very stressful time for me, and a surprise that it was cancelled. But you know, everything that doesn't kill us—which it almost did—makes us stronger!"[31]

On June 28, 2008, Grammer checked into an undisclosed New York hospital after complaints of feeling faint. His publicist said that it may have been due to a reaction to medication.

Actor Kelsey Grammer Again Ordered Arrested
Metro Digest / Local News in BriefMay 03, 1990Actor Kelsey Grammer, who was slapped with arrest warrants twice previously in connection with a 1988 drunk driving conviction, was again ordered arrested Wednesday after he missed a court appearance in Van Nuys on an unrelated drug charge.

Grammer, 35, who plays the brainy psychiatrist Frasier Crane in the "Cheers" TV series, was scheduled to appear in Van Nuys Municipal Court to prove that he was participating in a drug rehabilitation program as an alternative to standing trial for cocaine possession.

As Grammer's professional life was taking off, his personal life faltered. His first wife decided to leave him while she was delivering their daughter Spencer. He had called her from the airport to tell her he was coming in, and she said "Don't bother. I've had all the locks changed". In 1987 Grammer was charged with DUI and possession of cocaine. Following a 1988 conviction for possession of cocaine, he was put on 90 days house arrest, and then served 30 days in jail in 1991 after violating parole conditions. In his autobiography, he claims that his second wife, former stripper Leigh-Anne Cushany, was abusive. After they spoke about divorce, he wrote, she made a failed suicide attempt by overdosing on Tylenol and wine, and miscarried their child as a result.

During the middle of the 1990s he was frequently in the tabloids: he was accused of statutory rape by the parents of his child's underage babysitter, but police found no evidence to support the accusation. After publishing his autobiography, So Far... in 1995, Grammer was sued by a former girlfriend for defamation of character and invasion of privacy. In September of 1996 he flipped his car near his home, and subsequently checked in to the Betty Ford Clinic for thirty days. He has been drug- and alcohol-free since that time, he says.

Dianne,
I think most people are accepting it, (it seems like to me). But they just see a little inconsistency with some of the statements made, thats all.
Since the statements are directed to the public I think that the public wants the opportunity to comment on them.
Also, when someone has been in the public eye so long and you
have watched them in private interviews (where I have seenhim sincerely glowing about his wife)some things seem obvious to the observer.
HISBITCH: Yeah, He had his share of troubles with alcohol/drug abuse.But turned his life around,risen above,which I hope continues. Facing your demons head-on/turning your life around is admirable. People who havent struggled with those issues--which tend to be genetic--have never done that. And Kudos to THEM not abusing substances. Lets hope he doesnt pick-up that 1st drink.

This isn’t really a question on anybody’s lips, but just pretend that it is – why is Kelsey Grammer getting divorced?
His political views? The fact that he cut his glorious mullet off? The fact that he’s a terrible, terrible, awful father and he deserves to be locked in a cellar? No, it’s definitely not that last one. We know this because Kelsey Grammer has denied claims that his wife left him because he couldn’t be bothered to speak to his own children on Father’s Day.
In fact, Kelsey Grammer says that he did speak to his kids on Father’s Day, and that he loves both of them – Whatshername and The Fat One With The Nose or whatever they’re called – equally. Heartwarming.
It’s not really news that Kelsey Grammer is getting divorced. After all, this is his third marriage – so the story doesn’t have the shock value of Al Gore’s divorce after 40 years of marriage or the hilarity of Larry King’s millionth divorce.
But what does make it news is the way that Kelsey Grammer has decided to tell the world what a good dad he is. You see, it had been claimed that Grammer’s wife Camille walked out on him when he didn’t call his two young children on Father’s Day. But, thanks to a combination of the internet and a bizarre need to over-share every single aspect of his entire poxy life, Kelsey Grammer has come forward to deny the story. See? He’s a good dad. No, he’s a great dad. Here’s what he wrote on his website:
“The truth is I did call my kids that evening. Frankly, I was surprised that they did not call me in the morning but I was thousands of miles away and working that day so I didn’t give it a second thought. I called them to see how they were doing as I do almost every night at around the same time, 11 p.m. my time, 8 p.m. their time, just before they go to bed.”
See? Kelsey Grammer is a great… well, actually, no, he’s not a great dad, is he? He’s just essentially berated his own infant children on the internet for not calling him on Father’s Day. But never mind, this is Kelsey Grammer we’re talking about about. We’re sure he’ll find a way to prove what a brilliant dad he is soon.
What’s that? Kelsey has also come forward to say that the mysterious blonde who he was seen getting cozy with at a restaurant recently was actually his daughter from his first marriage? See? Kelsey Grammer really is an excellent father. Well, maybe more creepy than excellent, but let’s not get into semantics here.

re:127

Too late Dianne, he picked up his first drink a long time ago. By the beginning 2011, he will be on celebrity Rehab. They would love a big name to keep the show going, and it would be a pretty big payday for him. Facing your demons head on and destroying lives in the process, too bad only the good die young. Hollywood always gets free passes, just sign up for rehab, and continue the abuse that others suffer. It's the poor guy, who can't get help, who winds up under the ground.

First off, the nasty comments are completely uncalled for. Why is it that every woman is a gold digger that marries someone with money? You have no idea what you are talking about. I am a good friend of Camille and for the record Kelsey chased Camille and fell in love with a brilliant woman who helped him thru his drug addiction! Before Kelsey she was completely independent and didn't need his money. Now if you marry someone who happens to have some $$ are you not supposed to enjoy the lifestyle? I really have no patience for ignorant jealous people who attack without the correct information. Now, if you had all that money are you saying you wouldn't get botox or wear nice things, dumb ass, She's in Hollywood and the pressure to look good is overwhelming! Her hair is real! She was blessed with great hair, a great body and the she hasn't had major plastic surgery other than botox and a breast lift. I would do the same thing! If you look at old pictures from the early 90's she looks exactly the same!! I know cause I worked with her and she was and is one of the nicest, most down to earth people I've ever met who happened to get set up on a date with Kelsey thru a friend. She fell in love with him despite all the baggage he came with. So please stop the gold digging, nasty comments because if anyone is to blame it's him. She is the victim here and is devastated by her marriage ending. Money isn't everything and we all know Hollywood is full of backstabbing vicious people. Camille is a rare and true person in a sea of fake people. Watch what you say about people when you don't know the whole truth.
Oh yeah, and IBS sucks and not being able to give birth to your own children is a horrible thing that I don not wish on anyone - why would you say such a thing? Some people just suck.
