Kelsey Grammer gave his new bride a million dollars cash as a wedding gift

Kelsey Grammer wants to show his new bride, 29 year-old British flight attendant Kayte Walsh, that he’s serious about his commitment to her. He married Kayte without a prenup despite the fact that he’s going through what will go down as one of the most expensive divorces in celebrity history. Now there’s news that he gave Kayte a little present in the form of a million dollars cash in her bank account to do with as she wishes. This story is in In Touch, but I would bet it’s true. Kelsey loves to throw money around.

Kelsey, 56, and Kayte, 29, tied the knot on February 25 in New York, and according to a friend, Kelsey, who earned many millions during his years on the top-rated Frasier, deposited $1 million in her bank account as a wedding present. “Kelsey wanted to do something extravagant for Kayte,” the friend explains. “He’s loaded, so it was a drop in the bucket for him.” Another insider says not to be surprised if the couple are also expecting a baby soon, even though he already has three other kids – two with ex-wife Camille. “Kelsey would love nothing more than to have another child.”

That’s pretty generous of Kelsey considering that Kayte probably doesn’t have to pay for a damn thing while she’s with him. That gold digger really scored with this one. This reminds me that when Ivana Trump was married to Donald and running some of his businesses she had to “get by” charging everything on credit cards since her salary was just a dollar a year. (Ivana received over $25 million in the divorce plus property, spousal support and child support.)

Kayte sadly suffered a miscarriage early in her relationship with Kelsey. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear she was pregnant again. Although I have no love for this couple I hope it works out for her. If it does, Kelsey will be welcoming a child that’s younger than his own grandchild. His oldest child, daughter Spencer, 27, is pregnant. Spencer just got married February 11 at City Hall in New York City.

    Nothing says I love you like cold, hard cash.

  2. Jackson says:

    Yeah, she gets a million dollars, but she still has to wake up to THAT grinding on top of her every morning. Not enough.

  3. Dorothy#1 says:

    I don’t understand why men like Kelsey go for younger women. Her youth just makes him seems even OLDER!!!

    Oh and I would probably hit that for a million dollars! LOL

  4. OtherChris says:

    Those boots are pirate boots, which is appropriate given that she’s about to steal all his money.

  5. Elj says:

    Ewwww @ Jackson. Thanks for that image.

  6. meme says:

    I honestly have a soft spot for Kelsey (one of my personal favorite talents), so it feels good to see him so happy. Congrats!

  7. Hakura says:

    Giving a woman ‘cash’ as a wedding present… Sounds more like when someone pays a prostitute…

    @Elj“Ewwww @ Jackson. Thanks for that image.”

    I’m with you, on that one. x_x

  8. lucy2 says:

    Get therapy, Kelsey. It’s a lot cheaper than all these brides and divorces.

  9. Quest says:

    My sediments exactly…only the price was not predetermined prior to the arrangements.

    It’s like just close your eyes and think about the million bucks while we screw

  10. Delta Juliet says:

    He really wants more children? Isn’t he ignoring the ones he already has? Or am I thinking of another deadbeat?

  11. nanster says:

    As I have said previously, why do these actors (like Charlie Sheen and Kelsey Grammar) keep getting married???? Why don’t they just live with someone – like the rest of us do! Don’t they realize that it never works and that it’s very expensive to end a marriage? I wish I could find one of these suckers to marry me!

  12. Hautie says:

    I will say this about Camille, she kept Kelsey updated. He was always groomed. Hair dyed blonde with a good cut. Impeccably dress. It is easy to look past age when you keep yourself highly groomed.

    He has looked all ratty and old since he decided he needed a new 20 year old.

  13. bros says:

    there have been blind items about him marrying another beard, so this isnt surprising. its a down payment on services.

  14. RHONYC says:

    although chick got a buttah-face, her legs look like they’re in diesel shape, seriously. :-)

  15. skinanny says:

    you must be kidding, they all look happy the first year, after the shock of a mil in your bank account wears off, and you have to actually sleep with the guy, the mil starts to shrink….

  16. cara says:

    GODDAMN! Why did I try to be all “moral” and sh*t when I was younger and hotter! Sh*t!

    Morals or money…..hmmmmmmmmmmmm

  17. original kate says:

    …and there’s the reason she married him.

  18. Sunnyjyl says:

    @Cara, Haha! I’m with you. I was SO HOT in the day. I wasted it on true love. What were we thinking?

  19. Xx says:

    Gross. Looks like his grandaughter

  20. RHONYC says:

    @ skinanny

    …the mil starts to shrink….


    along with his d-…well you know the rest. :lol:

  21. kmn says:

    I feel bad for Kelsey’s daughter. I would be soo skeeved out if my dad married someone two years older than me! Eww

  22. DetRiotgirl says:

    @Cara and Sunny I’m 26, so my “hot” expiration date is coming up fast.

    Hmmm… I better tell my boyfriend that we have to go on a five year hiatus while I marry a millionaire. Then, after the costly divorce, I’ll get back with him. But, not marry him. I’m not dumb. I’m not going to do all that gold digging to risk possibly losing it in a divorce with someone who never had to wake up next to a mummified celebrity! My nightmares, my money! Lol

  23. Jules says:

    They both know what they signed up for and the pics look like they’re both pretty happy about it! A cash present is nice, if she invests it well she could become wealthy in her own right.
    Her gift to him could be too pry those bright white sneakers off Kelsey.

  24. Hakura says:

    @Hautie“He has looked all ratty and old since he decided he needed a new 20 year old.

    You’d really think it’d have been the other way around… That he’d be trying harder to look younger to impress this younger woman. Unless he’s realized he doesn’t stand a chance of ever impressing her, & has given up.

    I’ve said it before, & I’ll say it again. Once she blows this mil, & tires of having to put up a front marriage, she’s going to leave his ass broke as Lindsay’s weave, because the moron didn’t do a prenup.

  25. REALIST says:

    Tack-y! But then, she looks pretty happy about it.

  26. arock says:

    damn right shes smiling, smiling like a fox.

  27. cprincess says:

    I think this girl seems really sweet and not some gold digger….Camille on the other hand….
    Kelsey Grammer has a ton of issues but when you hear about the tragedy he’s had in his life,it makes me want to root for him…

  28. truthzbetta says:

    Men who pay for sex are so pathetic. As are the chicks who accept.

    Once upon a time Hollywood tried to make you think Robert Redford would have to pay a million dollars to sleep with Demi Moore.

    This is more what the real thing looks like. Dumb and Dumber.

  29. Emily says:

    $1 million doesn’t sound like a romantic wedding present to me. It makes her sound like a whore, though. Literally.
