After news broke Thursday that Kelsey Grammer and wife Camille Donatacci plan to end their marriage of more than 10 years, a rep for the star is speaking out to ET.
"Kelsey and Camille value privacy," a rep for the star told ET. "They understand that private lives sometimes get played out in public but ask on this occasion that their privacy -- and the privacy of their children -- be respected."
Grammer, 55, tweeted Thursday: "Hello everyone. Thank you for [your] support and Yes it's TRUE Camille and I are Divorcing. I ask [you to] respect our privacy...."
The former "Frasier" star, who currently appears on Broadway in La Cage Aux Folles, wed Donatacci, 41, in August 1997. The union was Grammer's third marriage.
