The quickie divorce Kelsey Grammer so desperately wanted from wife and business partner Camille – so he could marry again – this time to his girlfriend Kayte Walsh – has finally been granted.
The judge in Los Angeles County Superior Court signed the divorce decree only after Grammer was forced to post $2.3 million to assure Camille of adequate pension guarantees in the event his next wife takes him to the cleaners.
Although Kelsey is officially single he is planning on marrying Kayte (rhymes with mate) by the end of the month and this fact caused Camille and her legal team to seek extra security.
Kelsey and Camille still need to work out their property settlement. Because their joint estate is so huge – well over $100 million dollars – and complicated – including real estate, entertainment companies, investments, etc. – the property settlement itself will be like a major corporate breakup.
Camille’s business acumen was largely responsible for Kelsey’s growth in personal wealth during their marriage – so she deserves everything she is getting.
UPDATE: Camille just said, “I have a great many mixed feelings about today — I’m sad for what was, yet excited about the road ahead.” She adds, “What I most hope is that Kelsey and I can improve our communications and truly co-parent our two wonderful children, and I wish Kelsey and Kayte love and happiness in their new marriage.”
Nevertheless – I bet Kelsey makes Kayte sign a very solid pre-nup.
