After 13 years of marriage, Frasier star Kelsey Grammer and third wife Camille Donatacci are planning to divorce, the actor said on Thursday.
Kelsey made the announcement via his Twitter page.
"Hello everyone thank you for ur support and yes it's TRUE Camille and I are divorcing I ask U 2 respect our privacy," he wrote.
Kelsey confirmed that Camille "made a very difficult decision" by filing for divorce, but asked his supporters to be kind to her.
"I realize that it is human nature but I ask that you be particularly sensitive to the feelings of my wife," he added just hours after the initial announcement.
"She has been a terrific partner for many years and should not be treated with any disrespect at this time."
The couple have two children, eight-year-old daughter Mason and son Jude, five.
