Kelsey Grammer is sounding off regarding reports that claim a he was caught making out with another woman while still married, as well as reports that a Father's Day incident led to the breakup of his marriage.
On his website, Grammer says:
- â€œWhen faced with malicious and unfounded rumors, I will defend myself. Some comments have surfaced about Fatherâ€™s Day. I donâ€™t know who is generating them but the truth is that I did call my kids that evening.
Frankly, I was surprised that they did not call me in the morning but I was thousands of miles away and working that day so I didnâ€™t give it a second thought. I had texted Camille that morning to wish her Dad a Happy Fatherâ€™s Day. I hoped that might serve as a reminder. I love my kids and I miss them terribly.â€
As for the rumor of him kissing another woman, the actor adds:
- â€œA rumor from the â€˜bottom of the barrel setâ€™ has surfaced about me and a dirty blond at a restaurant in NYC. It was April and we were seen smooching at Five Napkin Burger. The dirty blond was my daughter Spencer, who was visiting that entire month. I do take issue with the characterization that we were smooching but surely if that were the case then even I admit it might be newsworthy in some fashion.
Certainly, the time will come when I do see another woman. I expect Camille to see other men. I hope people and the press will understand that we are both free to carry on with our lives. I ask that everyone remain discreet for the sake of our children; I will certainly do so.
Lastly, Camille and I had been discussing the possibility of a separation for some time before all this happened. She finally decided she should file,â€ he concluded. â€œI respect her for this decision. I mean her no harm. I hope to have a great partnership with her in the raising of our children. I have always been proud to be their Dad; I have always been very involved in their lives. Ask anyone that knows us.â€
Grammer and his wife Camille are currently going through a divorce after 13 years of marriage.
Yesterday, we caught a surprisingly upbeat Grammer on his way into lunch in Malibu.
So there you have it!
