Kelsey Grammer's third wife Camille, has filed for divorce citing "irreconcilable differences". It is understood the couple actually split around a month ago and that Kelsey Grammer and his estranged wife had been "discussing separation for some time" before she filed for divorce. The actor (55) confirmed his wife, Camille Donatacci (41), who is a former Playboy model and dancer, had completed paperwork to end their marriage recently. The pair wed in 1997, a year after they met at a MTV party. They have two children together Mason, nine, and six-year-old Jude. Donatacci is seeking joint legal and primary physical custody of their children.
Since the news broke there have been a number of reports about the split, but Kelsey insists it was simply a case of the pair growing apart. "Camille and I had been discussing the possibility of a separation for some time before all this happened. She finally decided she should file. I respect her for this decision... I hope to have a great partnership with her in the raising of our children," he wrote on his website.
Kelsey was taking to his blog until fairly recently to deny many of the reports concerning the split. Kelsey moved to New York earlier this year to star in Broadway production La Cage aux Folles, so he has been away from his family, who live in Los Angeles. It seems that having a long-distance relationship just didn't work and there are reports that they began suffering marital problems when he took the part in the play earlier this year.
There were many reports that he was living the single life and that Kelsey had become more and more distant from Camille. Another report stated that Kelsey had been seen having dinner with a young blonde woman in New York. But amusingly, this turned out to be his 26 year old daughter Spencer from his first marriage.
