Piers Morgan was left without an interviewee on Wednesday night after Kelsey Grammer 'stormed out' of the CNN building.
According to Piers the actor was waiting to be interviewed on the chat show when he saw a photograph of his ex-wife Camille being prepared for broadcast.
Piers claimed he then 'ran out of the building'.
War of words: Piers Morgan labelled Kelsey Grammer 'shockingly unprofessional' after he walked out of CNN
'Kelsey Grammer was supposed to be on my show now but ran out of the building. Strange,' tweeted Piers.
'Kelsey saw a photo of his ex wife Camille in the open to our show and legged it. Extraordinary. Never had this happen before.'
Piers said that he and the 57-year-old Boss star had already chatted and all seemed well.
Tirade: Piers Morgan's tweets about his run in with Kelsey Grammer
'I had a very friendly chat with Kelsey backstage. He said he was really looking forward to the interview. Weird.'
He added: 'I like Kelsey Grammer personally, but this was a shockingly unprofessional thing to do.
'I wasn't even going to mention his ex-wife!'
But Kelsey's representative released a statement to website TMZ saying: 'Piers needs to take responsibility for what he did to Kelsey. It's called accountability.'
Despite his apparent reticence, Kelsey has previously been only too happy to discuss his ex wife, who stars in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

He has taken swipes at the 44-year-old in interviews, revealing that they hadn't had sex for ' a decade' before their split.
Kelsey is now married to 29-year-old Kayte Walsh, who is the mother of his newborn daughter Faith.
The three-time divorced Frasier star never signed a prenuptial agreement with his ex-wife of 13 years, and she stands to make a fortune – $30 million – in the yet to be agreed settlement.
He's been working the talk show circuit promoting the return of his Starz series and, while he has stopped referring to Camille by name, he still can't help but air out his grievances.
Last month, the thespian sat with his British flight attendant bride and newborn baby and told Oprah Winfrey that he thought he owed Camille 'fame' and helped her nab a spot on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
'Because she’d given up so much to endure this life with me,' Kelsey added sarcastically.
Meanwhile, Camille told HLN's Joy Behar that if her reality show fame was a gift then, 'thank you, Kelsey, for the gift of humiliation for the first season.'
The blonde, who's since moved on with bankruptcy lawyer Dimitri Charalambopoulos, said the second season was horrible because Grammer left her for Katye while she was filming.
In the past, she's also made public allegations that her ex was a cross-dresser and that they 'just didn't mesh sexually.'
