After months of bitter dispute, Kelsey Grammer and his ex-wife Camille Grammer have finally settled their custody issues.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the case has officially been taken off calendar. Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ … Kelsey and Camille have agreed to joint custody of their 2 kids — 10-year-old Mason and 7-year-old Jude.
We’re told the kids will both continue living in Los Angeles with Camille, but Kelsey will maintain “meaningful contact” with both of them.
The couple had reached a temporary custody agreement last July, but this one is permanent.
As for the couple’s financial dispute, sources tell us … they have almost resolved all of the money issues and it should be settled very shortly.
What on earth will they do for drama on the new season of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ if these two are getting along?! I’m kidding – I don’t even watch the show to know if they discuss Camille’s kid situation at all? It’s nice to see that they’ve finally put their personal issues aside and are focusing on the kids. I can’t imagine how hard it is for them to deal with all that stress.
‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ star Camille Donatacci Grammer says that she’s keeping ex-husband Kelsey’s last name. The reality mom says she’s doing it for her kids, despite the nasty break up of her 14-year marriage.
“Our children are Grammers and it’s easier to keep the Grammer last name because of them. There’s so much paperwork that goes with changing a name. We’re still going through [a custody battle] … it’s just easier.”
She is still claiming that Kelsey pushed her to do the reality show:
“I couldn’t understand why he would want me to be on the Housewives, because we were always such a private couple — it was to keep me preoccupied in L.A. so he could have his affair in New York.”
Camille also says that they are still working out the divorce settlement details and some custody issues. It’s so easy to tie the knot, but not so simple to untie it – especially after that many years together!
When it comes to battling custody issues with ex-wife Camille Grammer, actor Kelsey Grammer wants to take son Jude with him to Chicago and leave daughter Mason behind in California.
And TMZ obtained proof with the real papers to show it!
TMZ broke the story … Camille Grammer wanted custody of the former couple’s 2 kids because Kelsey wanted to split them up. Kelsey’s lawyer told us her story was “inaccurate.” But we’ve obtained a letter Kelsey’s lawyer sent to Camille’s attorney which says exactly what Camille claims.
The letter, dated April 29, 2011, says “Kelsey proposes … Kelsey shall have primary physical custody of Jude and Camille shall have primary physical custody of Mason.” The letter says Kelsey wants to enroll 6-year-old Jude in a Chicago school.
The letter also outlines very specific terms of the custody agreement, including when each parent gets the kids on holidays.
Camille filed for primary physical custody yesterday … and we’ve learned she wants custody so the kids aren’t separated from each other.
As for Kelsey, his rep, Stan Rosenfield, tells TMZ, “Despite the fact that those connected with Camille Grammer seem to be hand delivering confidential documents to TMZ and other media outlets, we will continue not to make public statements about their private matters which can and apparently does beg for misinterpretation.”
Rosenfield continues, “There is no valid reason to drag the Grammer children into any media spotlight.”
What do you think!?… Is it okay for Kelsey to bring Jude with him to Chicago? Or should he be more selfless and keep the siblings together?

Camille Grammer is telling her friends and making it very clear to her ex-husband, Kelsey Grammer, about one thing: the kids want her and not Kelsey!
Sources close to Camille tell TMZ … after Kelsey filed the legal papers today in L.A. County Superior Court, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star called the move “another act of creepishness and chutzpah.”
But we’re told Camille ain’t worried — because she strongly believes their 6-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter are on her side. Camille has also told friends she will “fight like hell” to keep her kids with her … “exactly where the children wish to be.”
Our sources say Camille is ADAMANT Kelsey shouldn’t get sole custody because he “abandoned his family and fathered a child out of wedlock … which speaks volumes about his parenting.”
As we previously reported, Camille had been open to the idea of shared custody before Kelsey filed the docs today — but now … the gloves are off.
