The Kelsey Grammer divorce may be getting messy. To the tune of $50 million. That is the amount that actor Kelsey Grammer may be paying his ex-wife and reality television star Camille Grammer. The couple, married for 13 years, will be divorcing in California (a community property state) without a prenuptial agreement. The $50 million represents half of the $100 million the couple amassed during their marriage, according to The Los Angeles Times.

The latest Kelsey Grammer divorce news is that the former Frazier" star offered Camille Grammer $30 million. And she turned it down.

The bulk of the sizeable fortune the couple has amassed is from various successful real estate ventures as well as royalties from Kelsey Grammer's acting stints.

This represents the third divorce for the former "Cheers" actor who now primarily acts on Broadway and has relocated to New York City full time.

Quite the fan of marriage, Grammer is already engaged to his 4th wife because, "we are so in love and see no reason to postpone our happiness." In California, there is a 6 month waiting period before a divorce is finalized, perhaps that is a reason to postpone.

A high-stakes divorce no doubt, the Grammers have many options available to them when it comes to resolving issues dealing with finances, houses, child custody and visitation rights. In addition to discussing their issues with the court, many Hollywood couples enjoy the flexibility and secrecy that comes with working with a third party mediator.

It will be interesting to see how much of the Kelsey Grammer divorce appears in the second season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
