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."

Thank goodness. She's always been a whacko. I'm surprised he didn't ditch her a long time ago.

also...how dumb are people reading and not understanding...it's more than the fathers day bull...she had to make a decision she didn't want to do...she didn't want it...his words...meaning he screwed up in a big way...she had no choice...it will come out...it always does at some point...my guess the booze...another woman..or both...just another junkie who had a stoke of luck in acting...

FYI: Father's Day is just a day!!! You can make anyday a Father's Day. Sometimes our society makes a"DAY" a bigger deal then what it needs to be. Someone and I don't really care who should have made contact w/ the kids. (Either Camille have them call their dad or Kelsey call them.) Jude and Mason are little and it's not their responsiblity to do that yet. At this point Father's Day is more about the kids then their dad anyway.

He must be doing blow again...it would explain everything. Addicts want to be free to do whatever they want. He loves his freedom and is more interested in running around late night doing drugs then being a family man.

The point is.....he obviously didn't care to talk to his kids on Father's Day. Period. What 5 and 8 year old think to pick up the phone? Oh... it's mom's responsibility! He's had what now, 3 marriages..?..it has nothing to do with political persuasion(right, Al Gore!?)and everything to do with personal responsibility.
What are the odds he's got a girlfriend?

I saw it coming. The man has always been self involved. When it's 'cool' to have a family again, he'll try another one on.

I met KG years ago at his house as a friend of his brother.
He was a most gracious host, and he couldn't have been nicer.
I found him to be considerate - down to Earth and an all around good guy. He hasn't had an easy life - his sister was murdered and he has had a stuggle with his demons, and defeated them.
What actor ever has been picking up trash along LA's freeways one year - to later become one of TV's most well known and highest paid actors? Give him his due. Life ain't easy being him - but he is a survivor. America is all about second chances.
He earned everything he has, DESPITE his problems. No one handed him anything. Gay? So what. It's his life.

Nope, I agree with the others and I have 2 kids and 2 step children and THEY call Daddy on Fathers Day. Mom helps if they are too young. In the very least, Mom calls Dad on Fathers Day as well. Sounds like there is alot more to it than we know.
