Another Hollywood relationship bites the dust! Kelsey Grammer‘s daughter, Spencer Grammer, 34, is sadly getting divorced after six years of marriage, Us Weekly reported on Thursday, Nov. 30. Spencer’s husband, James Hesketh, is allegedly the one who filed the papers.
According to the news outlet, James listed the reason as irreconcilable differences. The two previously married in February 2011 in NYC at City Hall (the nuptials came just one day after her dad’s divorce from his third wife, Camille Grammer, was finalized). They also share a six-year-old son, Emmett Emmanual Hesketh, who was born in October 2011. James also shared in the papers that he hopes to resolve all property and custody issues in meditation.
And while Spencer and James kept their previous engagement hush-hush (she never really announced it, she only tweeted “Thank you to all for my congratulations! I’m very excited!” one month before the wedding), she has said in the past that her father approved of their relationship. “As long as you don’t have a bunch of tattoos he’s okay with it. I only date really nice guys,” she shared back in 2009. “He couldn’t possibly not like them. I have like really good taste.”
Kelsey previously welcomed Spencer with his first wife, Doreen Alderman, in October 1983 (he has six other kids with different women, too). The two were married form 1982 until 1990. In a previous interview, Spencer gushed over how much her little boy Emmett loves his grandfather. “He’s a great grandfather, but we don’t call him that,” she exclusively told Closer. “His father liked to be called by his first name, so we call him Kelsey.” She added, “My son Emmett loves him. He’s a really big fan of Toy Story 2 and my dad is one of the voices.” Here’s hoping the couple works it out for Emmett’s sake!
