Kelsey Grammer -- $50 Million Will Set Him Free

12/28/2010 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kelsey and Camille Grammer will divide up a 9-figure pot of gold, and Camille will walk away with more than $50 million ... sources connected with the divorce tell TMZ.

0910_media_removed_H#D2D7F0
As TMZ first reported,  the couple never signed a prenup, which means all earnings during the marriage are divided 50/50. 

We're told during their 13 years of marriage, the couple amassed a fortune in excess of $100,000,000.  Much of it was invested in real estate. They have homes in the Holmby Hills area of L.A., Malibu,  Hawaii, the Hamptons, New York City and Colorado.  

Our sources say when they married Kelsey was strapped for cash, but turns out Camille is savvy in the business department and taught Kelsey a thing or two along the way. One person familiar with their finances says, "They made a lot of smart decisions. They were really a good team."

Sources say the couple is working out a financial settlement, made complicated by the fact that some of the properties -- like Hawaii -- are in the toilet because of the economy.

We're told no real "Cheers" money is coming in, but "Frasier" is still a cash register and Camille gets a cut.

Camille isn't as dumb as she looks. She may have an enormous amount of insecurity issues but she is a great business manager and financeier.

G-dd-mmit Kelsey.......

She's a crazy broad and I always said she gets what she deserves. But if this is true, 50 million it is! Tear of the check!!

I hate when the most undeserving people get rewarded, but in this case that money is hers. She may be great with money but BAD WITH SOCIAL SKILLS!!!!

They made a lot of really smart investments? Camille is business savvy? They invested in REAL ESTATE, which is absolutely in the toilet! You've got to be joking. Every house they bought is worth less than they paid, and if the bulk of their fortune are these properties, I would say they have a lot less than 100 million. I think someone is going by the price they paid, not the actual value, which they should be doing. If they are going by actual value, Kesley wasn't as strapped financially as you seem to think.
Also, Camille's half won't last long when she refuses to part with the four nannies that are raising her kids, her constant trips and shopping sprees. Not to mention her regular household staff that she will never give up.
50 million doesn't last long after taxes and after living like a billionaire for a decade.
Can't wait to laugh at her broke a$$ in a couple years. She is the nastiest person ever.

I am glad she is getting half... he cheated on her for MONTHS. If he wants to be rid of her to start life anew with another blonde, then he has to pay!

He should have known better than to hook up with a known stripper and 'hooker'. she 'may' have helped with getting him (K.G.) back on his feet, but all she did was invest in herself- through him - to make money off of his back in the long run - he worked hard for that money - not her - she plays it cool, but in reality she is a cold hearted b*tch that has to 'pay' people to be her "so called" - 'friends', 'house help', 'staff', ETC. They are her 'YES' people - that kiss her ass and tell her how great she is-(which we all know she is NOT) - In the real world; no good hearted and decent folks ('people') would want her around because she is cold, calculated and callous. Shame on her for giving women a bad name, and shame on her for blinding us with her ugly face and presence on television. Camille GO AWAY! We all have had enough of you - nobody likes you and nobody wants you around this town anymore - period! take your 50 mil' and go choke on it somewhere.... beaaaatch !!!

Ugh.. Well, knowing how much of a pain in the ass Camille is, 50 million dollars is getting off easy. His 50 million and future residuals will help him and his new younger - and much prettier - wife-to-be have a great life together!

Like the poster Theresa Burke said, Camille can take the money and 'Go choke on it somewhere.' It won't buy you happiness, youth, or respect.

For Kelsey to want to remarry so soon after such a horrible marriage and divorce, that's really telling. It says that he's really happy and truly in love with this new girl. She probably loves him for who he is, and not his money (unlike Camille, who only cared about the lifestyle Kelsey could provide her.) If Kelsey feels that way, I can easily see him wanting to tie the knot with her right away!

NOT ENOUGH $$ TO WALK AWAY WITH IN TODAY's WORLD!!

What is Camille thinking? Kelsey is the work horse, she has no skills that can produce good money and the economy is scary.

50 Mill is NOT enough, Kelsey just needed a break from the nagging or to deal with his mid-life crises.

CAMILLE, STOP THE FOOLISHNESS (the DIVORCE) NOW !! and give Kelsey his space (without the divorce) and do your thing with the housewives.

Of course Kelsey has to stop this 50/50 on-going deal. Camille has invested 13 years into this to let it go so fast because of bruised EGO's etc.

Be Honest Camille have you taken Kelsey for granted? Has it mostly been about YOU?

Sad to say but your right Gloria Unread - Kelsey needs as much help as Camille. They both have children together and need to see the big picture of that. His track record is not good either, they should have never married - with out a prenup.... goes to show that Kelsey thought this marriage would last and that it was - - THEEE one and only marriage for the rest of his life.. - only to fool himself - to find out that he was a pawn in her game of life or vice a versa.... sad to say - of course she would not bring up a prenup - why would she? why throw away the gravy boat - because it looked half empty? she knew with time after his recover from drugs and alcohol he would be a good little earner again someday .... even if not - he still had money coming in from other 'old' shows....

sad to say - another "Hollywood' - 'New York' marriage tragedy.... the ones who truly hurt out of all of this is the kids - at least they have four nannies to confined in....

Wishing them the best of luck in the future, I mean the kids, not the parents.

50 Million? Wow! I don't see that she did too much to get that amount of $ out of this marriage. I don't even know if she slept with him, someone carried her children and now take care of them. I am sorry if she cannot have children, because that is not something she chooses. But, she does choose to RAISE them and care for them. Four nannies? Seriously? I know she probably rotates them for a.m. and p.m. but these are HER children. Are these children paid to be her children, as her "friends" are paid for? I just cannot stand her. SHe is so shallow and manipulative. I am against people cheating on each other, but....she would make you nutso! She seems to have major psychiatric issues. Or maybe she is crazy as a fox. I haven't figured her out yet...mayge the 50 million is my answer. LOL. I thought she wanted to come out of Kelsey's shadow???
