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.

I must side with Kelsey here: just because you dress in drag and suck a few ****s doesn't mean you can't marry a woman. 50 million sounds about right for playing the beard for most known but never talked about rump rider in Hollywood.
Hey Kelsey my flatmate use to shag your new lady. His nickname was Thor tough act to follow for any guy especially one known to be on the small side. Stick with the men far less judgmental.

There's nothing wrong with being gay just own it.

Butt plugs and woman's clothing please just come out and end this charade. Stop subjecting innocent women to your twisted deviant torture.

As to the alleged contents of that alleged tape, Warshavsky wouldn't say. Still, perhaps anxious to get back into court, IEG includes a parody of what it "imagines" such a tape might include.

This conjecture--titled "Kelsey Grammer, Butt-Plugged Mensch or Wench?"--features Grammer performing solo sex acts with himself while wearing women's clothing and includes an image of Grammer superimposed with a pink bra.

"We put this bra on Kelsey. Did he put one on himself?" the caption asks.

Camille if not already, will be banging different guys in their early 20's every night of the week. I never really knew much about her (only she had irritable bowl syndrome, I am not making up)until I saw her on the Real Housewives of Bev Hills. I can't stand her. Who has a house manager? I mean really.

Newsflash Kelsey was married when he met Camille. It's okay for her to do it but poor little wacko Camille now?
Newsflash! Camille called Faye morally corrupt? That would explain her porn scene in the Naked Dectetive! It is not soft porn either!

She should shag some young studs. Kelsey can't get it up for woman that don't look like men. I'm sure Kelsey had a house manager prior to meeting his ex-wife. Somebody had to manage his home and watch his other kids while he went on week long coke binges with 15 year old girls.

I used to defend Camille - until I saw her on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
OMG that woman is a beatch and a half.
Totally nasty.
No wonder Kelsey is divorcing her bony azz.

I don't pretend to know Camille but from what I have seen from her on Housewives I can't imagine how Kelsey stayed with her for so long. Camille is such a mean person...she is constantly making snide remarks and putting people down. I hope Camille is able to go to counseling in order to work through the issues (demoms) she is battling. I think Kelsey will be better off even if he is left pennyless.

Kelsey Grammer had a hit TV series (Frasier) and had a bit part on Cheers but the guy's not funny, not talented, not entertaining and not interesting. The fact he was able to amass over $100 million by being a not particularly good actor on cable sitcoms is funny. The fact he wasn't smart or sane enough to sign a prenup that would protect his fortune is even funnier. More power to you, Kelsey!

So she did a straight soft porn and he made movies of himself jerking his small bird while dolled up in woman's clothes using various butt plugs. Which is worse in this day and age? His one girlfriend claimed he loved wearing her panties and urinating on himself. Sorry the guy's twisted!

Actually, I think Kelsey is the financial genius here.

He must have set down with his accountant and got some projections on how much Camille would spend on plastic surgery and material things to fill her vapid empty soul and realized that he was better off giving her half his fortune now than paying for her self-absorbed overindulgences anymore.

She is a vile woman. She deserves to be alone.

I think Karma is a bitch and it came and knocked Camille on her ass. From what I've seen of her on The Housewives of Beverly Hills, she's been arrogant as HELL and tries to be the center of the show but she's just a bitch. You can see her insecurities when you watch the show. Kelsey may have to part with $50 million but he'll make it back. A few more shows in NY or a movie deal or two or even another tv series...but I think he's NY set..tried of L.A.

Karma...gotcha, Camille!

I hope that Camille with 50 millions in her pocket could pay the best psychologist in LA to work in her issues. First at all, she needs to be a good mother and not let her children been raised by her 4 nannies.

Second, she needs to find out who is Camille, besides to be Kelsey's wife. Apparently, she has not identity by herself.

Um, I will buy that he was dumb enough not to have her sign a prenump, but I call absolute BS that he was broke in '97 and that she was some sort of business sage that helped him build an empire. She was a freaking cage dancer from MTV when they met! 13 years of Frasier made him 100mil, not some dumb blonde. This reeks of her friends/legal team or whoever trying to make her look good in the press and get her a better settlement.

Say what you will about Camille (yeah she's a bit nutty like most in hollywood) but if it was not for her Frasier would've been canceled in 1995 or 1996 due to his alcoholism. This was causing too many problems with the show as he could not perform or production costs was too high due to shooting scenes over and over. Camille is the one that cleaned him up, put up with his them career failing, she is the one that talked him into setting up their own production company along with making sure he stayed sober.

Some say she used him but really she saved him along with his career and this is how he repays her. So yeah she is entitled to $50million but given her business savvy she will be fine Kelsey on the other hand will once again find himself short on cash back sliding in the whole where he belongs. Camille should ask for the production company or do not give up her half ownership since she was the one to not only get it started but made it profitable, Kelsey will only screw it up anyway.

Complain all you want about Camille, but she changed his life for the better. He was broke and a drug addict at the time they hooked up. She sobered him up and together they made a lot of money - she should get half and substantial child support for those poor kids. Both are better off without each other.

Kelsey is a pedophile. I guess in 1995 statutory rape was all the rage. After falling to convince his good friends father that he actually was in love with his 15 year old daughter who he raped Kelsey paid a large sum of money in return for the girl rescinding her chargers. Funny what fame and celebrity can do. Anyone else would be doing time for the crime. On the bright side at least it wasn't a 15 year old boy. Camille walking with a cool 50 million is God's way of karma catching up to Kelsey.

As a result of a new law, this site will provide you with access to information on more than 63,000 persons required to register in California as sex offenders. Specific home addresses are displayed on more than 33,500 offenders in the California communities; as to these persons, the site displays the last registered address reported by the offender. An additional 30,500 offenders are included on the site with listing by ZIP Code, city, and county. Information on approximately 22,000 other offenders is not included on this site, but is known to law enforcement personnel.

Kelsey Grammer - star of the Emmy-winning comedy "Frasier." In 1995, authorities in Arizona decided
not to prosecute Grammer for statutory rape, and a New Jersey grand jury declined to indict him on the
same charge.
