Tragic Details About Kelsey Grammer Have Finally Become Clear

Frasier may be one of the biggest sitcoms of all time, but the off-screen life of the show's star hasn't always been a hit. Suffering the loss of those closest to him, fighting to overcome addiction, and struggling to pass on his legacy, this is Kelsey Grammer's tragic real-life story.
In 1968, when Grammer was just 13 years old, a man broke into his father's home and shot him to death. Grammer told E!,
"[The assailant] lit a ring of fire around his house and as my father came down to investigate what was going on, he […] shot him several times and […] dad died."
Unfortunately, there would be little justice for the family. According to People magazine, the killer was "found not guilty by reason of insanity."
Grammer later found a father figure in his TV dad, Martin Crane, played by English actor John Mahoney.
"We're not leaving you at home, you're coming with us, wouldn't be any fun without you. Oh really dad? I was so hoping that you would say that."
Even years after Frasier wrapped, the two remained friends - until Mahoney's passing in 2018. Grammer mourned the loss, tweeting, quote, "He was my father. I loved him."

  • I’m glad that he has been able to piece his life together. It has been a rough one for him. I love the show Frasier it’s my favorite show. I used to watch it with my mom, and whenever I watch it it always reminds me of her.

  • Amidst all the heartbreak and tragedy in his life, I truly hope he finds the Life-giver...Jesus Christ. For in this world every human will have tribulation (of varying degrees and sorts), but we can take heart that Jesus has overcome the world. I'll be praying to that end Kelsey...

  • He seems to be an incredible individual. I can't imagine the amount of devastation this man has endured with people losing their lives around him so frequently, and not by natural causes. Most people would wallow , and for good reason, but this man learned lessons from his experiences and picked himself up and moved on, and became a very successful person. How ironic that he played a Psychiatrist in his series.

  • I always enjoyed watching Mr. Grammer. Years ago when I read of his loses I actually could feel his pain & unfortunately also felt him distancing himself. I thought at the time ; do we ever really overcome tragedy in life ? Do we ever get to living free when the ones we love have been taken from us? I believe throughout our course in life we find ourselves out of nowhere, falling to our knees crying uncontrollably. Afterwards, God carries us.
