Former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Camille Grammer claims she suffers chronic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder since the violent attack on a hotel room by her former boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos. The ex-couple is currently on an ongoing legal battle, stemming from the said alleged assault which Dimitri countered with defamation.
According to Mail Online, the court papers cited that the 47-year-old TV personality has PTSD and her psychiatrist, Dr. Bethany Tucker, testified that she had been taking multiple medications for PTSD as well as for her anxiety. The LA-based psychiatrist also said her patient told her that she was abused by Kelsey Grammer, her former husband, physically and verbally.
In 6th of April, Dr. Tucker appeared for deposition in Dimitri's bid to prove that Camille fabricated the assault allegations, Hollywood Life reported. Camille who was also fighting for the custody of her children thinks she was verbally abuse, Dr. Tucker said in the 2012 deposition. She was married to Kelsey from 1997 to 2011 and began seeing the psychiatrist in 2005.
Perez Hilton reported that Camille accuses Dimitri of assaulting her in a hotel room in Texas in 2013, when she was still recovering from a hysterectomy surgery. After a grand jury dismissed Camille's assault case, her former boyfriend filed a defamation lawsuit against her. Camille's legal team designated Dr. Tucker as a rebuttal expert in Dimitri's defamation suit and the psychiatrist was deposed.
"She was constantly worried about her safety and if Dimitri was going to break into her house since he knew the property and knew the codes and all that sort of stuff," Dr. Tucker said on her testimony.
The alleged assault in 2013 at the ZaZa Hotel in Houston, Texas sparked an argument when Dimitri received a text from a woman in the middle of the night and Camille accused him of cheating on her. According to Camille, a violent argument ensued as Dimitri slammed her head into a furniture, grabbed her hair and repeatedly 'pulled her head into the bed and headboard.'
She reported the incident to the police and provided photographs that showed the bruises she had sustained during the struggle.
