If he isn’t careful, she’ll take his “Tossed Salad & Scrambled Eggs” too!
Well…This gives a whole new meaning to the expression “It’s Cheaper to Keep Her.”
If Kelsey Grammer hopes to swap life with the Old Ball & Chain for a fantastic new existence with much-younger fiancee Kayte Walsh, the Frasier actor will have to relinquish ownership of a hefty part of his fortune, tattling tipsters tell TMZ.com.
Kelsey’s divorce from former Playboy model/current Bravo Real Housewife Camille Donatacci-Grammer may cost the 55-year-old actor around $50 million because the couple did not enter into a prenuptial agreement when they wed in 1997.
Camille failed for divorce last July, after she claims Kelsey walked out on her and their two young children, but during their 13 years of marriage, the couple amassed a fortune in excess of $100 million, most of which is in real estate. The couple owns homes in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles, Malibu, Hawaii, the Hamptons, New York City, and Colorado. Since there is no prenup, per California law, Camille is entitled to half of Kelsey’s fortune.
The soon-to-be former Mrs. Grammer could also take a part of the back-end profits and syndication money Kelsey earns from all of those old repeats of Cheers and Frasier. Grammer recently tried to block her access to his accounts, despite the fact that it was Camille’s head for business that helped her ex find financial success again after some cash flow troubles in the mid-90s.
The exes are still hashing out a financial settlement, but Kelsey is asking the court to grant him a divorce as soon as possible.
