Kelsey Grammer Was Done with Marriage

7/2/2010 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ ... Kelsey Grammer made it clear to his wife ... he didn't want to be married anymore, and his actions on Father's Day pushed Camille over the line.

Kelsey Grammer
TMZ broke the story ... Camille Grammer filed for divorce yesterday, citing "irreconcilable differences."

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... the 13-year marriage started crumbling when Kelsey moved to New York earlier this year to star in "La Cage Aux Folles" on Broadway.

Camille stayed with their two kids in L.A. and flew back and forth to visit him, but sources say it became apparent "Kelsey loved New York, his friends and his freedom more than his marriage."

We're told the tipping point for Camille was Father's Day, when Kelsey was 2,475 air miles away from his family and didn't call his kids. 

As one source said, "She doesn't know what Kelsey is doing in New York, but he's made it pretty clear he wants nothing to do with marriage anymore," adding, "She didn't see it coming."

Another self-righteous rightie all about 'family values' for everyone else, but not willing to live by them himself. Poor kids. It's one thing if your marriage isn't working, but he doesn't have the right to just get 'tired' of being a dad.

I concur with #1 and #5. Maybe Kelsey was pissed Camille didn't have the kids call him on Father's day. It is not up to him to make the call on fathers day.

You people are nuts. If these reports are true, there's a good chance the kids are feeling abandoned by their dad and confused by the whole situation. Do you really believe THEY should be the ones to suck it up, act like the adults in the situation and try to contact him? It's this sort of backwards thinking that explains why we live in a world where adults are allowed to act like spoiled children. It's simple really--it is not the job of kids to take care of their parents emotionally, whether for a manufactured retail holiday like Father's Day (and Mother's Day and all the other ridiculous 'Days' brought to us by Hallmark) or not. Abandonment is abandonment. This falls on Kelsey Grammar, not his kids.

I can't comment on any of the other items, but the mother should have helped the kids call their father on Father's Day - my father has certainly never called *me* on FD! That's just silly.

If I have a guess, this probably has something to do with her irritable bowel syndrome. The sex life just doesn't recover from that.

It's not the marriage or the kids, it's the old woman! Men age like wine; women age like milk!

Hellllloooooo?? It's the KIDS who call the father on Father's Day. Guess her bowel isn't the only things that irritable.

I love KG. His wife is obviously more interested in her own pursuit of the biz, and in so doing has shown her true colors for marrying a star...everybody wants to be a celebrity...well KG's had enough of her selfish BS...and until you hear from KG...you'd be a turd to believe anything coming out of her camp...Skanks like her always use the children to launch hurtful salvos at their husband...a guy who only made her rich and free to do anything she wants...yah...he's real nasty...man - you go KG...get out and live your life...and don't get tied down in another bomb...keep your distance from the vampires already gathering for a feeding.
Your friend,

PM.

if you consider kelsey a father, which is a stretch, he would have made it a point to be with them, I called my kids and invited them to a barbecue and I cooked, Father's Day to me is not about getting gifts or calls, it's about sharing my love with my family, the sad thing about kelsey is that he has no family, maybe he will get a call for mother's day, come out of the closet kelsey, you were and the whole cast of Frazier are gay, except for eddie, but wouldn't be surprised if kelsey made some advances, who knows what a sick mind will do
