Kelsey Grammer -- No Prenup!!!

7/14/2010 8:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Kelsey Grammer took a page out of Larry King's playbook, and got hitched to Camille without a prenup.

It's pretty stunning, since during the run of "Frasier" Kelsey was the highest paid actor on TV ... making $1.6 mil an episode at the end of the show's 11-year run.

As we first reported, Kelsey is asking that some of his "Frasier" money be declared his separate property.  Turns out, he was married in 1997, four years after the series launched.  So Kelsey's separate property request only covers the first 4 years.  His earnings for the remaining 7 years, as well as much of the syndication money, will be considered community property.

Going 50/50 is risky business, when you've already been married twice before. Camille is Kelsey's third wife.

Just a note for the future.

I'm a crazy person...    

As a 3rd generation native Californian who received divorce papers when my income fell from $15k a month to $1500 a month I have to beg this question: Why would ANYONE in their right mind get married in California??? ESPECIALLY celebrities of Kelsey's worth?!?! This states divorce laws are positively sickening.

I always thought he only married her to be his arm candy anyway. That's a lot to pay for using someone for their looks.

Agree with the poster that said there should be laws about how much a person can take in a divorce when one person has substantial assets and the other has zero going into the marriage. That would keep the gold diggers at bay. But, buyer beware, right? He is a smart guy; shoulda known better. BTW, just saw him in La Cages Aux Folles on Broadway this past Saturday - great show; they couldn't have done a better job - the whole cast!

A pre-nup matters very little after ten years of marriage. Most lawyers won't tell you this because they want to make money by creating pre-nups.

His lawyers are NOT dumb. The money is placed in trusts or some corporation that is protected. Like what the Gore's recently did.

Pre-nups are for the middle class - the rich don't really need them. They can be contested but corporate dealings are protected - or, at least that what his lawyers should have done if $1.5M per episode is at stake.

For the amount of money he's about to lose, he could have hired a top shelf escort every day for 11 years. Why does she get half? Could she have filled in for KG if he was sick during a taping. BTW I knew his three half brothers.
