Kelsey Grammer Seeks Sole Custody Of Children

Kelsey Grammer Seeks Sole Custody Of Children

Radar Online reports that Fraiser alum Kelsey Grammer has filed for sole custody of his two children with ex-wife Camille Donatacci.

According to court documents, Grammer is asking the judge to grant him joint legal, and sole physical custody of daughter Mason, 9, and son Jude, 6; a move that Donatacci, calls “insensitive.”

Since the couple’s very public divorce, which was finalized on February 10 – sixteen days before Grammer’s marriage to Kayte Walsh – Camille alleges that her ex has been uncooperative in trying to work out a custody agreement. As the primary caregiver of the children throughout their 13-year marriage, sources say that the “real housewife” was willing to commit to a partial custody arrangement…until now.

“Camille is an excellent mother, and Kelsey truly doesn’t have a leg to stand on,” says Donatacci’s BFF Alison DuBois (yes, that Alison DuBois, who was a party to the most awkward RHBH scene ever). “Good luck with that battle, Kelsey — you are going to need it,” she adds.

Kelsey’s plans for the children’s living arrangements have not been made public. The actor is currently living in Chicago, but Mason and Jude attend school in Los Angeles where they live with their mother.

When contacted by the press, Grammer’s rep declined to comment on the matter, except to say that “any statement would be inappropriate. The filing speaks for itself.”

    I guess in Kelsey’s world, you get a new wife but keep the old kids. I don’t care for either of them but he is a selfish, disgusting pig. I will never watch anything with him in it again.

    What a troll.

    Camille probably is unbalanced but she managed to still appear to be a good mom. I admit I like him BUT this is a total slime maneuver. First destroy her life as your wife and then take away the thing that matters most to her. I doubt despite his fame and money that the judge will uproot the kids anymore then already has been.

      You must be privvy to some inside information, because I’ve never publicly seen any evidence that she’s a good mom. How much mothering is there to do once the four nannies get done? By her own admission, she doesn’t wake them, feed them, bathe them, help them with their homework, or put them to bed. Maybe she shops for them? That would count, I guess.

      With that said, they do seem to always *live* with her while Kelsey is off on location, or in a play, or finding a replacement for their mother in his spare time… so for that reason alone I think he should leave them alone and let them stay with their mom.

        By his own admission HE stated she was a good mom, despite her personal issues with him. Additionally have you ever seen him with the kids by himself? I don’t really think any of us have a right to judge any of these parents by pictures or what the media says. I for one do not like Camille and in fact like Kelsey because I know his entertainment lawyer and from what i have been privvy to, he is a big humanitarian. But that being said he is kind of an a** for trying to
        publicly humiliate his wife twice now.

        Sorry he never mentioned his kids before but now because she demanded a bigger settlement he wants sole custody. Something sounds a bit too much like revenge tactics.

        She does seem to be much more involved in their lives than he ever did.

        Even the other housewives said she was a better parent than Kelsey and they hated her.

    He is a creep who cant keep his pants zipped and he wants custody? Its time to start making cheating spouses not get custody. You don’t want to be married, GET A DIVORCE FIRST!!!!
