Kelsey Grammer Wants to Separate Kids

6/3/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kelsey Grammer is denying it, but TMZ has obtained black and white proof that he wants to split up his kids, taking his son to live with him in Chicago and leaving his 9-year-old daughter behind in California.

TMZ broke the story ... Camille Grammer wanted custody of the former couple's 2 kids because Kelsey wanted to split them up.  Kelsey's lawyer told us her story was "inaccurate."  But we've obtained a letter Kelsey's lawyer sent to Camille's attorney which says exactly what Camille claims.

The letter, dated April 29, 2011, says "Kelsey proposes ... Kelsey shall have primary physical custody of Jude and Camille shall have primary physical custody of Mason."  The letter says Kelsey wants to enroll 6-year-old Jude in a Chicago school.

The letter also outlines very specific terms of the custody agreement, including when each parent gets the kids on holidays.

Camille filed for primary physical custody yesterday ... and we've learned she wants custody so the kids aren't separated from each other.

As for Kelsey, his rep, Stan Rosenfield, tells TMZ, "Despite the fact that those connected with Camille Grammer seem to be hand delivering confidential documents to TMZ and other media outlets, we will continue not to make public statements about their private matters which can and apparently does beg for misinterpretation."

Rosenfield continues, "There is no valid reason to drag the Grammer children into any media spotlight."

Harvey, I watched your comments on TMZ Live. You are absolutely right about this issue of Kelsey splitting up the children. Most especially your thoughts about how the daughter is feeling...sad for her! Did you ever think that maybe this is Kelsey's way of paying less child support? And wanting only the favored child...sic but maybe true. And that Moses comparison---BOTH parents wanted the one & ONLY child.

Wow, I never thought I could be on Camille Grammar's side about anything but I finally am. You don't split up siblings like that! Just cuz the parents can't get their crap together doesn't mean the kids should suffer anymore than they have to.

Welcome too the father "It's all about ME" club, s***bag.

Maybe Daddy Lohan needs a new BFF.

Do these people stop for 5 seconds and think about what these kinds of things do to their KIDS long term?

You can't get more selfish that THIS.

This man has enough money to fly back & forth to visit BOTH his kids.

For the sake of these children, I hope their mother is reasonable & sane & can protect them from their clueless father.

Let's see... Little Jude is taken from his friends, the only home he knows, his mother, beautiful sunny Beverly Hills and put in a school in cold a** Chicago? Old Kelsey sure knows how to raise kids.

Has anyone thought, perhaps the kids decided that they wanted to live this way. The boy with the dad, the girl wants to stay with mom.

When my aunt/uncle divorced that's how it went. They (aunt/uncle) asked the kids who they wanted to live with. The son wanted to live with his dad. And the daughter wanted to live with her mom.

A lot of people are passing judgment without knowing what the kids wanted.

WHAT A JERK!!!! If "Joey" was right with all his "facts", then Kelsey just needs to go scuba diving like his half or step brothers did maybe...seriously, I feel sssooooo sorry for his children. No child should EVER feel "discarded" by their parents, even when the parents are as "sorry-assed" as he seems to be!!!

I used to like Kelsey, after what he did to Cammile and now to his daughter, I have no respect toward him at all. Granted , Camille is not exactly the wife of the year. I wonder how his new feels about this and if she still wants to have him as the father of her child.

I think you guys are being really hard on Kelsey, as a divorced single mom raising sons, who was raised by a divorced single dad herself i can name a lot of reasons why that decision makes sense. Raising boys is very difficult for a female once they reach a certain age, there are some things that a man can better relate to than a woman when it comes to dealing with sons. And as a woman who was raised by men i can tell u after about age 9 men just can't relate, i would have much rather been raised by my mom or at least an aunt. Besides that at least each parent gets at least half what they wanted so neither can feel cheated. Kelsey isn't doing anything thousands of divorced people haven't done or aren't doing today. And you people who are bashing him are really inconsiderate of his children. Kids have just as much access to these comments as adults. How do you think his daughter feels hearing people say her dad doesn't want her!?!? You don't like Kelsey, cool bash KELSEY....leave his kids out of it. THAT'S kinda low don't you think?

This is horrible .......the children should not be torn apart like this due to their father's inability to keep it in his pants. Stand your ground Camille........dont let this jerk get away with this. In the future all they will have each other when all is said and done.

I'm sorry this came out because it could be very hurtful to the daughter. It sounds like a terrible idea to separate the kids.
