LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor Kelsey Grammer said on Thursday he hopes to marry for the fourth time in February.
But his estranged wife Camille isn’t so sure, and she has filed court papers opposing a quickie divorce to their 13-year marriage.
The former “Frasier” star, said in July that he was divorcing his wife, a former Playboy model and dancer who at the time was filming reality TV show “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”.
Grammer, 55, was soon seen with new girlfriend, flight attendant Kayte Walsh, 29, who in October suffered a miscarriage and lost their baby.
In an appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman”, Grammer described Kayte as “my new girl.”
“We’re planning to get married soon,” he said, then added “Sometime in February.”
But Camille Grammer, 42, asked a Los Angeles judge to reject her husband’s request to get a quick divorce and work out a financial settlement later.
In court papers obtained on Thursday by celebrity website TMZ.com, she claimed that Grammer wanted a fast decision “solely for the reason that he intends to remarry as soon as possible.”
“I don’t believe this is a sufficient reason to prejudice my rights to the community estate,” Camille Grammer said. She estimated the value of the couple’s various homes and property at more than $120 million.
Grammer made his Broadway debut last year in a revival of musical “La Cage aux Folles” but is best known as the egotistical therapist Frasier Crane in the TV comedies “Frasier” and “Cheers”.
