Early life

To be sure I'd never leave her, [my wife] Leigh-Anne... had to convince me that I was nothing—unattractive, untalented, undeserving of love, and incapable of being loved by anyone but her. The way she achieved this was to break me down with verbal abuse.

These were the verbal tools, but she had more. She'd spit in my face. Slap me. Punch me. Kick me. Break glasses over my head. Break windows. Tear up pictures of my loved ones. Threaten to kill me, kill herself. Cut my balls off. Chop me up. Put a bullet in my head.[11]

Kelsey Grammer at AllExperts (1355 words)
Kelsey Grammer was born in the small house behind the bar, and after the marriage failed Sally fled back to her family home in New Jersey where she gave birth to her baby daughter.
Kelsey, who was 20 at the time and enrolled in the Juilliard acting program, stopped attending classes and was asked to leave, citing a lack of focus.
Grammer claims she was abusive and that, after talk of divorce, she attempted suicide by overdosing on Tylenol and wine, which resulted in the miscarriage of their child.
Kelsey Grammer: Biography and Much More from Answers.com (3092 words)
Actor Kelsey Grammer is, of course, synonymous with the character of psychologist Dr. Frasier Crane, the pompous, effete snob he portrayed on the TV sitcom Cheers and later on its wildly successful spin-off Frasier.
For better or worse, leading actor Kelsey Grammer's name will probably forever be associated with the pompous, garrulous, and self-absorbed but lovable psychiatrist Frasier Crane, a character Grammer has played on television since he first appeared on the NBC sitcom Cheers, in 1984, as a love interest for Shelley Long.
In the mid-'90s Grammer was accused of statutory rape by the parents of his child’s 15-year-old babysitter, but a New Jersey grand jury declined to indict due to lack of physical evidence.
