Kelsey Grammer‘s parenting choices are under scrutiny once again.
While leaving LAX airport with wife Kayte Grammer and 4-month-old daughter Faith on Tuesday, the family appeared to be videotaped and photographed driving off without their baby girl riding in a car seat. Kayte, 31, was snapped holding Faith on her lap in the vehicle, which would be a violation of California law.
But a rep for the actor, 57, tells E! News that baby Faith was belted in a car seat before the family left the airport.
“I am not an attorney, so I cannot [comment] on any legal aspect. I just know that the original footage that aired strongly implied that they left the airport without a car seat, which was not the case,” Grammer’s rep, Stan Rosenfield, said.
“In an attempt to avoid the paparazzi, they exited through the upper level,” he explained. “Kelsey went back in and got the car seat and met them at the car. Did the car drive a few yards without the car seat? Yes. At no time does the video show them leaving the airport with the baby not in the car seat.”
Last month, Grammer defended his decision to bring his daughter to Hugh Hefner‘s Playboy mansion Halloween party, which caused quite a controversy.
“Kayte is breast-feeding and we do not have a nanny or a trusted baby-sitter at this time, so Faith goes everywhere with us,” he said in a statement to USA Today. “We enjoyed the party with a few of our friends, the baby slept as her ears were covered the entire time and we left shortly after midnight.”
