Kelsey Grammer Trying to Rip Custody From Camille

5/17/2011 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kelsey Grammer has just filed legal papers to get sole physical custody of the two children he had with his ex-wife Camille Grammer ... TMZ has learned.

Kelsey's lawyer filed the legal docs today in L.A. County Superior Court. 

Sources say Kelsey and Camille Grammer have been at war over the kids.  We're told the children have been having emotional difficulty dealing with Kelsey walking out and divorcing their mom.

Kelsey is asking for joint legal but sole physical custody, but it's not clear where he wants the kids to live.  Kelsey is currently in Chicago and the kids are in school in L.A.

Sources close to Camille are scoffing at Kelsey's move, saying she's been a full-time mother and he has been nothing but uncooperative in trying to work out a custody agreement.  She was willing to give him 50/50 custody, but now all bets are off.

How has she been a full time mother, when she has FOUR nannies? You aren't simply "full-time" because you don't work. I don't know why he married her to begin with. Once a porn star, always a porn star, no matter the money, houses, or airs she has!

It's just amazing. Men can *uck around on a wife, divorce her and then expect custody where the children live with him and the exwife gets visitation. Good thing when I divorced my ex wanted no part of the kids for years and still doesn't and they are 27 & 29 now. There is no way I would share my children where they lived with the ex and I got visitation. I would've taken things into my own hands. If I was her there is no way I'd let the kids live with him and be raised by his whore. I don't care if a surrogate gave birth. It's her egg. If he wanted to be there for the kids then he should have stayed married. He already has grown kids and it was no big deal to him then. Now that he is in his mid life crises he wants to pretend to be a good father. If he wants more kids he can just have them with his whore he's with now.

She didn't carry these children, she didn't care for these children - she had RHOBH go back and add footage of her interacting with the children to the show after publicity showed her lack of involvement in the children's lives during the last season.
I guess she is looking for another excuse to blame and cover for her bitchiness and unlikeability in the new season.
Once again she is using the children to garner publicity
Camille is a sad and pathetic clinger.

So did wife #3 or #4 whatever she is, find out she can't have kids so he told her, "don't worry, I'll go grab the ones I had with Camille"? He had no concern for those children when he was chasing and impregnating the latest wife, now he decides he wants everything after Camille agreed to the quick divorce so he could marry within two weeks like promised Kayte, the wife who can't spell.

From watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she has multiple nannies to take care of her 2 kids. She's left to do whatever she wants all day. From what I gathered she wasn't much of a mother to begin with so losing her kids would probably save her nanny money... all the more for shopping!!


Couldn't have said it better!

Cause judges always take kids from their mother so their dads' misstress can raise them! NOT!

So let me get this straight...he walks out on his ex, immediately marries his new ho of the month, his kids are having difficulties dealing with this hell he created and he wants to remove them from their mother? As if they aren't having enough problems? Kelsey always is and always will be the world's biggest douchbag who only thinks about himself! I guarantee this is because he doesn't want to pay support or something. There is no justification for removing the children when YOU were the one to completely turn their world upside down! Douchebag Kelsey!!

And remember people...just because she was on a reality show does not mean they didn't do some very fantastic creative editing as well. You don't see their a'whole" life on those shows. Only what they want you to see so don't go talking about her and her nannies and how she's not parenting her kids. YOU are NOT THERE and hell, everyone in HWood uses nannies. Kelsey will too and will more than likely bang that one behind this new upgraded wife as well. I just wish Kelsey would take a short jump off a tall building so we wouldn't have to deal with his crap anymore. Sucky actor, obnoxious, arrogant, and so full of what he thinks about himself. And that's just based on his own interviews!!

That incorrect!

They have 4 nannies on - RETAINER! Like a lawyer!

So, when Kelsey had to travel there would be someone available to stay with the kids when they both attended events! Oscars, Emmys, Charity, Political...


They didn't have 4 nannies there on-site 24/7!

It's not like wealthy people call a kid from church to babysit when they fly to New York to go to the TONY Awards!

He had a busy life and she attended events with her husband like most rich and famous people do!

Not only is Camille a vindictive bitch she appears to be wasted all the time.She always talks as if she is all spaced out on prescription drugs.

She always putting Kelsey down for screwing around on her,but on The Real Housewives she seemed a little too friendly with that male friend of hers.She claims innocence because she is friends with the wife too.That means sh*t! Just ask Shania Twain!

This isn't a decision any parent can make easily.
I guess we will see his reason/s for this in the coming future.

NOT GOING TO HAPPEN !! California and many States give the Mother custody from the start, the Father must prove mother is an AX Murder before any chance at custody.

ZooWatcher - the only sad and pathetic one here is you. Give me a break...all that crap you posted was just that. CRAP. Camille didn't even complete the 1st season and for sure dropped out of the 2nd. So how is that working for her and publicity? And how is she using her children for fame, when I HAVE NEVER SEEN A PICTURE OF THEM OUT? Wouldn't that be more like a Brooke M. to set up photo ops? Hmm...not one of those every published. Yet, there was Kelsey shoving his daughter in our face on TMZ over his wedding. So who pray tell will really use the children for publicity purposes? You may not like her, but I haven't seen anything that justifies her being treated this way. Yeah, a trashy, completely fake tv show doesn't count either.
