Frasier star Kelsey Grammer has claimed ex-wife Camille Grammer told him she wanted "out" of their marriage on the day of his mother's funeral in 2008.

The pair, who share a son and daughter, were married for 13 years before their 2011 divorce. The actor’s comments come as Kelsey has also branded Camille as "pathetic" for talking about him in the years after their split.

"Honestly, I don’t really talk about her very much, because so much of her life is spent talking about me and I just think it’s sort of pathetic," he said on In Depth with Graham Bensinger.

The 64-year-old continued: "A month after I had a heart attack my mother died — 12 years ago now — the day of my mother’s funeral, my third wife basically had an explosion about something.

"And she started telling me, ‘I’m out of this, I’m out of here. I want a divorce, blah, blah blah, which we’d had the same conversation for eight years, and it was tiresome.

"I realised at that moment that I was done with her, that I was not going to end up in this relationship for much longer. And somewhere under a year I was done."

Camille, 52, wed second husband David C. Meyer last year, while Kelsey married Kayte Walsh in 2011, with whom he shares a daughter and two sons.

The Simpsons star was first married to dance instructor Coreen Alderman between 1982 to 1990. They have one daughter, Spencer Grammer, who made Kelsey a grandfather when she gave birth to son Emmett in 2011.

He has daughter Greer, born in 1992, with hair and makeup stylist Barrie Buckner while a second marriage to Leigh-Anne Csuhany in 1992 lasted just one year.
