It's final: Camille and Kelsey Grammer are divorced

February 10, 2011 |  3:16 pm

Kelsey Grammer and Camille Donatacci Grammer divorce is final. Kelsey Grammer is officially divorced from Camille Donatacci Grammer as of Thursday, though the property settlement between the sitcom actor and his newly minted real ex-wife of Beverly Hills has yet to be worked out.

Kelsey pushed through a bifurcation of the case — separating the divorce from the property deal — so that he could marry wife No. 4, Kayte Walsh, as soon as possible. That leaves in limbo, at least for now, the fate of shared assets such as the exes' house in Bridgehampton, N.Y., and other trifles in the estimated $100-million estate they accumulated during 13 years of marriage. 

Kelsey did have to post a $2.3-million bond to guarantee Camille's rights to her share of his pension, TMZ said.

Camille, 42, filed for divorce on July 1, shortly before stories surfaced about Kelsey's new stewardess girlfriend. News that Walsh was pregnant with Kelsey's child went public in August; in October they announced that she'd miscarried. Kelsey, 55, and Kayte got engaged in early December.

Though the "Frasier" actor had no comment through his rep, onetime Playboy model Camille said in a statement Thursday that she hoped she and Kelsey could "improve our communication" and co-parent their two children.

"I wish Kelsey and Kayte love and happiness in their new marriage," said "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star.
