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."

First Kelsey screws around on their Mom leaves her and the family for a woman half his age and now on top of a broken family he wants to break up the kids. Kelsey Grammer is a poor excuse for a Dad and a man.

Wow. I wasn't a big fan of Camille's, but this might push me over the edge. Kelsey clearly has more mental issues than is obvious to the public. This guy is messed up. I nevere thought I would say this, but I hope Camille wipes the floor with him.

He did leave his wife and kids for a younger tramp.
He should not get custody at all.

Okay, Kelsey tells his wife Camille to be on the show "Real Housewives...." Next thing you know, he leaves her, divorces her, remarries, and his new wife that he has known for what 15 minutes is pregnant. Now he wants to split up the two children that he didn't care one bit about after he left their mother? Sounds to me like he is having one huge midlife crisis that seems to be lasting over 10 years. Grow up Kelsey, get a job, and apparently a vasectomy.

Kelsey once again you prove that you are the most selfish bastard on the planet. I did not think you could possibly sink any lower then you already have in the divorce until now. You are not doing what is best for your kids you are doing what you think is best for you. Here is a clue impregnate your young wife again and start a new family and leave your children where they have grown up with a sense of security. You selfish prick. I used to be a fan now I cant stand your selfish self serving self!! douche bag is the words that come to mind...

You can feel so alone when your parents split up, and it can be comforting to have a sibling when your are in that situation. You have another person who shares that loss of family, as you have known it since birth. Someone to talk to by just walking into their room or giving them a hug. I think it would be devastating to those children to split them up.

What an awful thing it would be to know that your father didn't love you as much as your sibling. His poor daughter!

HA! And that my friends is what a publicist with a mouthful of CROW says in response to the truth proving them a LIE!

You didn't have all that dignity and privacy for the kids on your mind when you DENIED THE STORY in the press and called Camille a liar did ya!? You bunch of two-faced bastards.
Kelsey Grammer is nothing but a puke chunk. He knows he can still buy off the six year old. That's the only reason why he's doing that. The older one knows what he's REALLY like. She's got eyes and ears to know what kind of a parent her father is. The little one's still kept closeted from the adult crap that filters down to children of a marriage. My father tried that same crap with my youngest brother. Though since he was the youngest and he hadn't ruined him yet and turned him against him that he could still brainwash him. We (the other siblings) were older and knew his game, so he had no emotional control over us anymore. Translation: he had no use for us anymore.

Klesey's already proven what kind of man he is by publically running around with no pride whatsoever with a new girlfriend getting her knocked up all before the divorce was even final. Begging to hurry the end of his marriage up so he could sprint down the isle again with a newer model. Didn't even have the balls to tell his wife he was leaving her. Let his damn publicist do it. He's a spineless coward and a miserable piece of crap. No child should ever have THAT for a fatherly role model, ESPECIALLY a son.

And his rep's having the nerve to sit back and play press up one side and down the other when it's convenient for them. Using TMZ and other media outlets to call Camille a liar but when she proves them wrong, then they come out with their noses in the air making statements that they're above talking to TMZ about such things and they have nothing to say. I'LL JUST BET YOU DON'T!

Camille, I hope you get sole custody of both of your children. Don't let that manipulative piece of garbage that calls himself a father near them. You take care of those kids and do what they need. You're doing the best thing and I hope with all my heart you come out of this winning. You have all my respect.

Kelsey. You make me sick!

Love your children more that you hate your ex!

If the kids are old enough they are usually asked where they want to live. A family lawyer usually takes them in a separate room and asked where they want to live. You people are all guessing that this was not the case. Mason probably asked to live with his father. I have 2 kids and that's exactly what happened. We asked them what they wanted to do. So don't assume that Kelsey is the bad guy here without having all the facts.
