Kelsey Grammer has asked a judge to officially end his marriage to estranged wife Camille next week (begs24Jan11), so he can wed his new fiancee.
The former Frasier star is keen to make Kayte Walsh his fourth wife and the couple is hoping to exchange vows in February (11).
However, reality TV star Camille is refusing to put their divorce battle behind them so quickly and has asked the judge to deny Grammer's request to dissolve their legal marital status while they continue to fight over finances.
Grammer has challenged the bid and filed new legal documents, arguing he's accommodated almost all of Camille's requests and wants a quickie divorce at their next court hearing on Wednesday (26Jan11).
The only outstanding condition is a $10 million (£6.6 million) bond he has been asked to put up to ensure both sides remain open and honest as they negotiate a split settlement, reports TMZ.com.
