You can't put a price on public humiliation, but the $30 million Kelsey Grammer's ex-wife Camille Grammer is getting should help mitigate the mortifying circumstances of their 2011 separation. TMZ is reporting that "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star has been awarded the whopping multimillion-dollar settlement. According to the site, the agreement is largely the result of a "property settlement" involving the former couple's three homes.
The amount granted accounts for half of the former "Frasier" star's $60 million in assets. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Camille is worth roughly $50 million (not bad for a former playmate), while Grammer is valued at an estimated $150 million.
The two met in 1996, the same year that Grammer entered rehab after crashing his car while intoxicated. The incident occurred after a string of arrests in the late '80s and early '90s. As TMZ notes, Grammer was broke when he met Camille, despite his earlier television success.
The Daily Mail reports that the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement.
Frequent tragedies have been cited as the reason for Grammer's destructive behavior. In 1993, People magazine reported that his father was shot and killed when he was a teen and that his sister was raped and brutally murdered when he was 20 years old. When Grammer was 25, both his half-brothers were killed in a scuba diving accident.
Camille, 44, filed for divorce in July of 2010 after 14 years of marriage. The split was quickly finalized so that Grammer, 57, could marry Kayte Walsh, a 29-year-old flight attendant, in February 2011. This marks the actor's forth marriage. The couple welcomed a daughter in July.
Despite the fact that Grammer began dating Walsh only a month after he split from Camille, the reality star says she has learned to forgive the actor.
"I have learned to forgive Kelsey and have appreciation," she told Hollywood Life in May. "Forgiveness and gratitude are so important. If you don't forgive, it will eat you up and make you sick."
