Kelsey Grammer: Rumored Blonde I Was 'Smooching' Was My Daughter!

With the spotlight on him after his wife filed for divorce last week, Kelsey Grammer says he wants to put a few rumors to rest.

"For those of you who have expressed your concern, I have had a very interesting week to say the least," writes Grammer on his website.

"I would like to start out by saying that both Camille and I have sworn to avoid any public forum as we go through what is bound to be a difficult process. However, when faced with malicious and unfounded rumors, I will defend myself."

"A rumor from the 'bottom of the barrel set' has surfaced about me and a dirty blond at a restaurant in New York city," he says. "It was April and we were seen smooching at Five Napkin Burger."

"The dirty blond was my daughter Spencer, who was visiting that entire month. I do take issue with the characterization that we were smooching but surely if that were the case then even I admit it might be newsworthy in some fashion," he quips.

"Certainly, the time will come when I do see another woman," he adds. "I expect Camille to see other men. I hope people and the press will understand that we are both free to carry on with our lives. I ask that everyone remain discreet for the sake of our children; I will certainly do so."

Grammer also adds that contrary to reports, he did speak to his children on Father's Day... even if he was the one that had to call them.

"I don't know who is generating them but the truth is that I did call my kids that evening. Frankly, I was surprised that they did not call me in the morning," he admits, "but I was thousands of miles away and working that day so I didn't give it a second thought."

"I had texted Camille that morning to wish her Dad a Happy Father's Day. I hoped that might serve as a reminder. I love my kids and I miss them terribly."

"Anyway, I and two of my old buddies drove up-state to spend a little time in the mountains. We stopped for dinner and when we got to the house (which has no cell service, by the way), I called them to see how they were doing as I do almost every night, just before they go to bed."

"Apparently, Mason had been upset earlier that day because she was missing me. I spoke to her for some time and reassured her that I loved her and that I would be seeing her soon. I have spoken to her and her brother Jude every day since and had called them every day before; perhaps it was foolish of me to expect a call on Father's Day, but frankly I did."

"Lastly, Camille and I had been discussing the possibility of a separation for some time before all this happened," the former 'Frasier' star explains.

"She finally decided she should file. I respect her for this decision. I mean her no harm. I hope to have a great partnership with her in the raising of our children. I have always been proud to be their Dad; I have always been very involved in their lives. Ask anyone that knows us."

"In closing, let me say that Camille and I shared many wonderful things throughout our years together; there were just a few things that we couldn't work out."
