Kelsey Grammer Seeks Sole Custody Of Children He Had With Camille

LOS ANGELES  (CBS) — Former “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer wants sole physical custody of his two children with former wife Camille Grammer.

The 56-year-old actor filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court regarding their 9-year-old daughter Mason and son Jude, 6.

He wrote that he is agreeable to joint legal custody with his 42-year-old ex- wife. He did not give any reasons in his declaration for why he wants sole physical custody.

The children currently live in Los Angeles with their mother, who has reportedly signed on for a second season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

The actor recently remarried and is currently working in Chicago.

For the summer months, he is asking that Camille Grammer have custody of the children during July and for him to have them for August.

He is requesting custody of the boy and girl during the Thanksgiving holiday period and to have them again during the second half of their school winter break, according to the court papers filed Friday.

A hearing on the requests is scheduled June 27 before Judge Maren Nelson.
