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."

But....he's the adult.. and father of those children and it's his responsibility to be a father. Who cares what holiday it was, he's living apart from them and they have to feel abandoned. Really he's done with the marriage ok, but the children now they have to deal with all the bs of living fifty percent of their time with both parents. Really people think about the whole picture.

Is everyone here stupid? The fact that he did not call his kids on Father's Day is REALLY lame. Father's Day is when kids are supposed to call their dads. It scares me how sheeple commenters are sometimes.

He is a talented actor, but his public interviews exposed an arrogant egotistical persona. He seems all wrapped up in himself, which makes for a very small package.

Kelsey has always been somewhat of a nut. I was actually surprised when he got married and had kids. Yep, the kids are suppose to call the Dad, not the other way around. I'm sure there is more to this story than we know.

Yet another Hollywood marriage bites the dust, due to the standard "irreconcilable differences." Unless the kids were too young too phone their Dad, yes, children usually do phone their fathers on Father's Day, assuming they have a close relationship, unless of course, Camille may have decided not to let them phone. Who knows?

Reposted from another site.

The announcement his wife is to be on the semi-reality show has been out for months. No correlation with the divorce. Those involved with the show informed us that Kelsey was the driving force behind his wife accepting the role,"He wanted it more than she did, he's the one who landed her the role". She wanted out prior to the start of filming and he convinced her to stay on the show. The question at hand now is - What type of man would want to subject his wife to the drama involved in one of these programs? Certainly not the nice caring warm hearted individual bearing high moral standards that he alleges to personify!
Several more likely scenarios are as follows:
1. A method of keeping his wife otherwise occupied so that he could gallivant around in NYC, shunning all family responsibilities.
2. To set his wife up for embarrassment and public attacks which comes with the territory of being part of that type of show. A good strategy for one planning a divorce in the near future perhaps.....
3. A marketing plan to promote his Broadway musical, since the Bravo cameras were reportedly filming in NYC outside and around the Longacre Theater, one could only assume Kelsey's role on the reality show. As was reported the cameras were rolling on the day of the premier. He fully knowing set his wife up for all the abuse for the free advertising, the epitome of deceit. Keep in mind the show started filming prior to the play's premier, after two bombs on the tube, the success of the show was no guarantee....
Whatever the case may be something is rotten in the Big Apple.Poor Kelsey, a desperate soul willing to forsake all others to revitalize his flagging career. Further proof that he's a card carrying member of Hollywood's Fraternal Morons of Arrogance. Bravo Kelsey for showing the world your true colors!
Keep up the good work Neo-con!!

the rumors about KS being gay will soon be confirmed, and I defend his right to bend over and catch some fast bals, he definitely can't pitch anymore, don't think she wanted to put up with this aspect of the marriage, the kids should be left out of this, father's day is for fathers who care, not abusive men who I recall likes underage women, or maybe boys now....

Camille Donatacci AKA Grammer is a whore from Long Island. She used to live in Riverbank West in NYC back in the 1995-1997 era, when she was in Playboy and everyone in the building knew she was a PAID ESCORT. She had men coming and going all day and night. It was a joke...TMZ should just go to Riverbank West 560... West 43rd ST between 10th and 11th Ave and ask the doormen. Ask the older ones who have been there for a while.

Anyway, when Kelsey was having his drunk driving accidents and alcholism issues in NJ at that time, he called Camille, As an Escort (Ahemmmm) date and she hit it big. Because he was a drunk at the time, she leeched onto him and "Helped" him get clean and then they "fell in love".
This slut hit it big and he was foolish enough to credit her with "SAVING" him.

You can put all the Rodeo Drive clothes, and great hair & makeup on a Hooker, but a Hooker is still a Hooker. She basically lived the script of "Pretty Woman" but was a beech and adorable like Julia Roberts character.

I used to live in Riverbank and also bartended at a nightclub on Long Island where this slut used to bang every doorman and bartender before she landed her big fish. She was an average Italian girl with dark brown hair and no chest until she did playboy and then like all "Hollywood WIves/Sluts" went blond and bought a set of 34Ds.

I hope he takes you to court and everyone finds out what a phony pig you are Camille.

PS Hey Camillle, you're startin to look like Joan Rivers
