Kelsey Grammer Slammed By Ex For Not Seeing Kids

By: Amanda Crum - November 15, 2013

Camille Grammer has had a rough couple of months; the “Real Housewives” star and former wife of actor Kelsey Grammer had invasive surgery to combat endometrial cancer just days before she was allegedly physically assaulted by her boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos. In a recent interview with Dr. Oz, Grammer says she’s doing well, but the main reason for her strength after such a trying time is that she has to be a parent to her two children, because Kelsey hasn’t been around.

“Once in a while I’ll get a little pain here and there, but I’m walking around,” she said. “I was able to go trick-or-treating with my kids and my life is moving forward and I’m feeling very well…it was just terrible ’cause, you know, right after any kind of procedure you want to be surrounded by love and you need good healing vibes and positive energy around you. Somebody’s there to take care of you and love you and – and I was physically abused and assaulted by this person and it was very traumatizing. But now, I’m working with a therapist and I’m going to be okay. I’m doing well. My ex-husband hasn’t seen the kids since July, so I’m Mom. I’m there. So I really needed to be here for them. My son doesn’t really understand it that well, but my daughter said, ‘Mom, I’m so glad you’re getting surgery ’cause then the cancer’s gonna be all gone.’ ”

Grammer was granted a restraining order against Charalambopoulos just before Halloween after he reportedly attacked her in their hotel room following an argument.

“He grabbed me by the hair, twisted it around his hand, and repeatedly pulled my head into the bed and its headboard,” Grammer said in court documents. “[He] succeeded in pulling out swaths of my hair and gave me a large, painful contusion on the side of my head. All the while, I was screaming for help. I began to believe he would kill me.”

Grammer divorced Kelsey in 2010 and the two of them have had a few public spats, but the actor hasn’t commented on the reality star’s accusations.

    I know why Kelsey divorced her……Cuz she’s a Drama Queen WAK JOB….and that last boyfriend that pulled her hair and bounced her head into the bedboard was sick of her schtuff…..although he could have just got the heck away from her instead,because SHE THRIVES on that kind of dramatic,poor-little-her kind of stuff…..Those kids KNOW who their dad is….and they don’t need a mother that teaches them that kind of > I am a Victim-type stuff< that SHE is prone to…….I've always wondered how judges can award custody to such blatant train-wreck women…..

      Are you condoning domestic violence by saying a woman wants their head bashed in the headboard? The children certainly do know who their father is, he’s the one who had an affair on their mother and doesn’t show up to see them for months at a time. And, as a person who had endometrial cancer, she qualifies to be called a victim. Any person who had any kind of cancer qualifies, although she didn’t sound as though she was complaining. Obviously, you have not had cancer, or you’d not bash another person with it.

    She sounds like a real high maintenance, whiney, pain in the (a)ss.

      Why do you say that, Jack? I didn’t hear whining in her voice, she said she was doing okay and is she a pain in the a.. because she needed to be cared for right after endometrial cancer surgery? She is a cancer survivor, raising two kids who haven’t seen their dad in several months, and was assaulted by a MAN she trusted, only a few days after having surgery for cancer. If you think she is a whiney, pain in the a.. then you must be a bully, hiding behind the computer screen to spew vile. If you get cancer, maybe you’ll remember your comments. It is a strong person who can survive it, and that isn’t whining.

    She just won’t let it go. She likes playing the victim even after her settlement of 50 million. She only married him thinking she could break into Hollywood and with all her whining he had to run for the hills and pay her off. Good for you Kelsey

      Kelsey “had to run for the hills”? He has five children with four different women, has been married four times and had two broken engagements. Seems he runs for the hills quite often.

      50 million dollars isn’t going to give those kids a relationship with their father. She is standing up to Kelsey to FORCE him to be a dad to them. Kids deserve a dad.

      How do you know, Susan, that she married him and had children just to get a Hollywood job? He paid her because he has the money to compensate for his adultery and abandoning his children. Divorce takes a while to get over, and so does endometrial cancer or any kind of cancer. If you have the perfect marriage, the perfect husband and best of health, you may not understand how a mom explains to her kids that dad is a deadbeat, and to be assaulted at a time when you have cancer. A holier than thou, person, are you Susan? You never know what the road ahead is for you. Easy to congratulate old Kelsey for his sins as a husband and neglect as a father unless you’ve had it happen to you.

    And all these thumbs down are from women who obviously agree with how she carries her self. They probably see themselves in her. Pretty sad that many nut jobs out there.

    Why would he want to see his CHILDREN? After all, they were adopted and it is OBVIOUS he doesn’t want them because he has a child of his own. What a JERK!

  • jeni

    She married him to get into Hollywood. Even a blind man can see that. Kelsey is not a “deadbeat” dad. He paid her 50 million. Deadbeat dad’s take off and do not pay a dime.
    I am a firm believer that you get what you give. She married him for fame and fortune and that is exactly what she got!
