Camille Grammer wants sole custody of children with ex-husband Kelsey

06/02/2011 by Olivia Allin

Camille Grammer of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" is seeking sole physical custody of her children with estranged ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, according to court documents obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com.

According to the paperwork, which was filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court on June 2, the reality star wants sole physical custody of their daughter Mason, 9, and son Jude, 6. Less than a month ago, on May 12, Kelsey also sought sole custody.

The papers claim that her Kelsey's filings were "done in order to create a false impression to the media and to wrongfully disparage" her.

According to the paperwork, Camille wants each party to have a month with the children in the summer instead of alternating weeks.

At the time of Kelsey's filing, a statement from Camille's lawyer called it "audacious" of Grammer to seek custody after leaving his family.

"A friend of Camille's speculated on the audaciousness of Kelsey's actions - to literally abandon his wife and children for a year, move 3,000 miles away, impregnate another woman when he was still married and then ask for custody? Camille is an amazing mother and the kids are where they belong and want - to be with her," Camille's attorney said in a statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com.

Kelsey's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com: "Any statement would be inappropriate. The filing speaks for itself."

The couple finalized their divorce in February. Kelsey, 56, and Camille, a 46-year-old former Playboy model who appears on Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," married in 1997. She filed for divorce in July 2010.

Grammer later married Kayte Walsh, a 29-year-old British flight attendant, on stage at the Longacre Theatre in New York, where the actor starred in a revival of the musical "La Cage aux Folles."

Kelsey Grammer has been married three times before. He was married to dance instructor Doreen Alderman from 1982 to 1990 and they have one daughter, Spencer, who starred in the ABC Family comedy series "Greek". Grammer and former stripper Leigh-Anne Csuhany were married from 1992 to 1993 and have no children. During this time, he had a daughter, Greer, out of wedlock.

Aside from playing the title role of a radio therapist on "Frasier", a part he originated on the 1980s series "Cheers," Kelsey Grammer also starred on the show "Hank" in 2009, played Beast in the movie "X-Men: The Last Stand" and voices the psychopath Sideshow Bob on the animated sitcom "The Simpsons".
