Camille Grammer was threatened by her boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos‘ baby mama and ex-girlfriend, Lisa Chynoweth during a crucial time in her custody battle with ex-hubby, Kelsey Grammer, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Dimitri was being video deposed in an ongoing custody dispute with Lisa, the mother of his five-year-old son, Marcus, when he was asked to listen to a tape recorded phone call between Camille and Lisa. During the tape recording, Camille says, “If you go to the press, I have lawyers that are beyond what you can imagine and they will pull stuff on you and you will be so mortified about your life and your family and what you have done. You don’t want to do that to Marcus.”
However, our sources tell us that the phone call actually lasted for four hours, and Camille had no knowledge that it was being recorded. “Lisa is the one that called Camille about a month and a half ago and she had a laundry list of issues she needed to address. Camille was very gracious in the beginning of the conversation and just let Lisa talk. Camille had a lot going on in her life because she was still in a custody dispute with Kelsey,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.
“Towards the end of the conversation, Lisa told Camille that the press had been calling her and brought up Camille’s children. Lisa knew about the custody battle and threatened to insert herself into that situation. Camille was provoked and reacted as any mother that loves her children would, period. Camille didn’t threaten Dimitri’s son, Marcus, she was simply saying that no child should have to deal with the fallout of their parents feuding.”
In the video, Dimitri, wearing a black hoody and white t-shirt, is asked if he recognizes Camille’s voice when he hears it and responds yes, and after listening to it asks, “Is there a reason I have to listen to all of this?”
Lisa’s attorney asks Dimitri if he thinks it’s ok that Camille threatens his ex and his son, and he replies, “I’m not going to answer that because I didn’t hear the rest of the conversation and I don’t want to hear the whole conversation…I didn’t hear a threat and I don’t know what that conversation was about and it was a little snippet and that has absolutely nothing to do with this…I didn’t hear a threat, it sounded more like a rebuttal.”
“Dimitri wasn’t with Camille when the phone call was made and they both find it extremely interesting that only a snippet of the conversation was recorded,” the insider says. “Lisa didn’t record the portions of the phone call when Camille praised what a great dad Dmitri was and what an amazing little boy they were raising. Lisa purposefully recorded when she had provoked Camille and attempted to use it against her. How did the deposition end up on YouTube? The lawyers involved are the only ones that have access to that information.”
One thing is certain, out of all of this drama: “Dimitri and Camille have never been closer and more in love. Camille has handled herself with true class and Dimitri is so grateful to have her in his life. Neither one of them thought they were ever going to find true love again and be able to trust someone with their heart. They are a fantastic couple and are rock solid,” the source reveals.
