Kelsey Grammer denies that his baby rode without a carseat despite photos of it

Remember when Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte were widely criticized for taking their then three-month old infant to a loud party at night at the Playboy Mansion, the annual Halloween party? Kelsey issued this long defensive denial including some seemingly unnecessary details about Kate’s custom being a witch or something without a hat. Well it turns out that Kate was actually dressed as Kelsey’s ex wife, Camille Grammer of RHOBH, and Kelsey was trying to deny it.

This is all a long-winded preface to this story that Kelsey Grammer and his wife, Kayte, were photographed getting into a chauffeured car without using a carseat for their infant. (You can see those photos here) Kelsey’s denial, issued through his mouthpiece, sounds just as full of unnecessary details as his last one. He says that he did get a carseat, but that he used evasive measures so the paparazzi wouldn’t see him transport the baby safely. That makes no sense. He didn’t want them to catch him putting the baby in a seat? Since when does Kelsey avoid the paparazzi?

While leaving LAX airport with wife Kayte Grammer and 4-month-old daughter Faith on Tuesday, the family appeared to be videotaped and photographed driving off without their baby girl riding in a car seat. Kayte, 31, was snapped holding Faith on her lap in the vehicle, which would be a violation of California law.

But a rep for the actor, 57, tells E! News that baby Faith was belted in a car seat before the family left the airport.

“I am not an attorney, so I cannot [comment] on any legal aspect. I just know that the original footage that aired strongly implied that they left the airport without a car seat, which was not the case,” Grammer’s rep, Stan Rosenfield, said.

“In an attempt to avoid the paparazzi, they exited through the upper level,” he explained. “Kelsey went back in and got the car seat and met them at the car. Did the car drive a few yards without the car seat? Yes. At no time does the video show them leaving the airport with the baby not in the car seat.”

This is more BS from Kelsey as usual. When my son was little like that and we were at the airport we used to bring his carseat with us. It’s possible Kelsey had the carseat in checked luggage and they had to pick it up later, but if that was the case they would have said it like that instead of giving this complicated “avoid the paparazzi” excuse. Plus I saw photos of the driver loading the back, so they probably had luggage with them at that time, which would make sense with curbside pickup.

In related news, Kelsey’s Starz show, “Boss,” has been canceled. He probably thinks it’s because he’s a Republican, right? Also, Kelsey wants to move back into one of the mansions he and Camille are selling, which she disagrees with because she thinks she won’t be able to offload it if it’s occupied. He may be having cashflow problems now, and it’s no wonder with all the estates he owns.

    That old man looks like a fool with that baby strapped to him.

    • aims says:

      He really does. He looks unnatural . He should do the world a favor and get sniped, its time.

      • Sweet Dee says:

        LOL I think you meant “snipped” but “sniped” is even better. LOL

        “Get me our best CIA sharp shooter, STAT. Just when you thought this motherf*cker wouldn’t get any worse, he leaves the airport without putting his kid in a car seat and that is the. last. straw. You’re going DOWN, Frasier!”

      • aims says:

        Lmao… i didn’t catch the typo. You’re too funny sweet

    • Birdix says:

      He is obviously a loving and involved father, which is sweet. but I haven’t followed the RH story, so perhaps that colors things…

      • aims says:

        The reason im jaded towards the guy is…. he was a bastard towards camile in the divorce. He then was fighting her for custdy of only one of the kids they had together. He only wanted his son. He has an ego that would put anyone to shame. He still bad mouths his ex whenever he can. The lists can go on. So as far as im concerned hes a real POS.

      • Sweet Dee says:

        Hmmm…I wonder if his other kids think he is a loving and involved father?

    • Bodhi says:

      I think he looks great wearing his baby. Baby wearing is & more men should do it

  2. the original bellaluna says:

    What I believe to be true is that kids these days are required by law to be in a safety-restraint seat until 65 or 70 lbs. (We have a Britax 5-70 lbs seat for Toddles.)

    About airline travel (this is relevant to me right now): If I pay for an airline seat for Toddles, his seat will be boarded with us, and he will sit in it in the plane seat (it is airline safety rated); if not, it can be checked and he will sit on my lap (which I will not do, both for his comfort/safety and my sanity).

    Is that correct?

    Additionally, hospitals have programs that GIVE or LOAN you a car-seat (because they won’t let you take Il Bebe home unless you have one properly installed). So why can’t these Hollywood types ensure that their car service has a car-seat in the vehicle?

  3. Ms Kay says:

    And the award of best parents of the year goes to…

    • sally says:

      That kid’s only 4 mos, and it’s already becoming clear she’s stuck being raised by a couple of nitwits.

    • Steph says:

      I know, and Kelsey must be in hog heaven with this dope as his wife. You know that she just feeds his ego by blindly oing whatever idiotic thing he wants. Dress up as my ex. Sure! Take the baby to the playboy mansion. Why not? F*ck the car seat. I was thinking the same thing!

  4. GossipG says:

    Grandpa babymaker…what a sick man. He hates being alone.He loves having babies..he can take care of him.He’s making a village to look after him when he gets old(ER!)

  5. Dani says:

    Don’t care for him but how can they cancel Boss!!!!! It was so good!

  6. Birdix says:

    not that this makes it ok, but this happens in nyc cabs a lot. you don’t see parents there lugging around infant seats.

  7. MsGoblin says:

    I walked past him on the street in NYC last week.

    He was looking pretty grizzled.

  8. maggiegrace says:

    For some reason, they really disgust me. Call me catty, but Kayte is a hippy, plain girl.

  9. princesslizabeth says:

    As I’ve said about countless other celebs, he’s an idiot. He’s done some good acting, but his personal life is an omnishambles.

  10. KellyinSeattle says:

    Apparently he and Camille are fighting over property now.
    Look how it seems like he’s always in the lead w/ her following him, or at least reaching for him like, “Pay attention to me at least until you dump me and our bliss is gone and then we fight like idiots over everything”.

  11. LadyLupton says:

    I live in a country where car seats for babies and children are not compulsory and it’s absolutely hair-raising the things I’ve seen and head about. It’s plain irresponsible if they didn’t secure their child.

  12. Bodhi says:

    Hooray for babywearing!! It is wonderful & more men should do it. My husband wore our son in our moby & it was seriously awesome.

    I don’t give a shit about his real housewife blah blah blah drama

    • Vickyb says:

      Yay! I agree! And I’m really impressed to see them using a wrap instead of a ‘crotch dangler’ Baby Bjorn-type one – so bad for their hip development. A Moby was our first one too, and we still ‘wear’ our daughter – she’s fifteen months old 🙂

      I’ve always wondered why more celebrities don’t use slings – an easy way to keep baby safe and protected from paparazzi and over-zealous fans, and an easy way to soothe them if paparazzi and over=zealous fans get too close.

  13. Relli says:

    Kelsey is a moron but a is sitting duck for a little game my husband and i like to call; Daddy or Grandpa?

  14. emmie_a says:

    I watched a video of this incident and besides not having a car seat, Kayte was not wearing her seat belt while sitting in the backseat of a moving vehicle -and- sipping a hot drink over the baby’s head. There are just so many things that can go wrong with this picture and all of them are preventable.

    And I’m definitely being over-critical because I can’t stand Kelsey Grammar and his wife seems like a little robot.

  15. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    Is that a baby in the giant, messy bandage thing or has Kelsey found a new way to get the groceries home?

    • Bodhi says:

      Its called a Moby & he is wearing it correctly (though I might have tucked the baby’s feet in). They are very comfortable for the wearer & the baby. Babywearing is a fantastic wear for both parents to bond with the baby.

      Harsh on him for being as ass all you want, but not for wearing his child

      • Isa says:

        That’s how I feel too, Bodhi. I think the only nice thing he’s done lately is wear his baby!

      • Debbie says:

        I agree with the babywearing for fathers, but in this case, I feel sorry for the child because of who is doing the carrying.

    • Vickyb says:

      Agreed with Bodhi – he’s actually using the best kind of sling to support his baby. The more structured Baby Bjorn-style carriers are actually not so great for development and can cause hip dysplasia.

      I don’t really care about his dramas, and I haven’t kept up to date with them, but I always appreciate any man who is making the loving and caring decision to wear his child.

  17. DreamyK says:

    Lying liars who lie. What a vile man he is.

    Cue to Katye in 5 yrs and her book on living with this self righteous bastard and the crap he pulled on her and the little one(s).

    I don’t care if you drive 48 inches. It’s the law and it’s for the infants safety, not some douchewaffles convenience.

  18. Remember when Kelsey was blathering on about how sophisticated and worldly Kayte was in comparison to his other women. And it was because she was a globe-trotting stewardess

    Well Ms Picture of Sophistication who worked all those years as a Flight Attendant doesn’t know how to travel with a child and a car seat!!!!!?????!!!!!

    Think about it ……… Don’t the Flight Attendants advise passengers on getting their child safely into the airplane seat. That can mean stoing the car seat overhead if the child does not sit in the car seat the entire time

    How does a Flight Attendant no know how to travel with a car seat ?????

  19. Ok says:

    Kayte knows how to travel with a car seat alright. She was just traveling with too many different Camille the Witch costumes. With all those gowns and long blonde wigs and nose bandages she didn’t have room for a silly car seat.

  20. MrsBPitt says:

    He is vile…

  21. Tracey says:

    Doesn’t anyone notice the guy is drinking hot coffee with an infant strapped to his chest?!?!

    • Debbie says:

      Yes and I believe we all agree that he’s a moron.

    • Vickyb says:

      So?! I used to wear my baby in a sling and have a cup of coffee, especially when she was that little, her head was protected and she wasn’t moving around. Now that she’s fifteen months old I probably wouldn’t do it, but she’s a lot more ‘grabby’ now!

      He’s pretty likely to be able to successfully drink from a cup with a 1/2cm hole specifically designed for this purpose, unless he’s a COMPLETE moron. Say what you will about the way he lives his life, but I’d judge that he has the necessary motor skills to complete this task, without burning his baby.
