The Neverending Tragedies In Kelsey Grammer’s Life

We’d all like to hope that there is a limit to how much one person has to endure, but looking at the life of legendary actor Kelsey Grammer, it seems like the limit does not exist. After kicking off his drinking problem at the young age of nine, losing multiple family members, and experiencing a rocky love life full of divorces and miscarriages, Kelsey seems to have made it out surprisingly well.

Still, there’s even more drama and tragedy in Kelsey’s life that makes it hard to believe he played such a lovable character for more than 20 years. There’s a reason why Kelsey believes his family is “cursed” and that he can talk to dead people.

Humble Roots


Grammer was born into a family of entertainers on the U.S. Virgin Islands on February 21, 1955. His mother, Sally, was a singer and actress while his father, Frank, was a musician who performed often at the coffee shop their family owned.

Even at a young age, Kelsey’s parents could tell that he had a special spark in his eye when it came to entertaining and performing. Sadly, it would take a drastic measure to get Kelsey to realize it too.
