She’s been fighting with ex-husband Daniel Giersch over custody of their children for the past six years, and finally Kelly Rutherford has been forced to admit defeat.
Earlier this week, a Monaco judge declared that Giersch would be awarded full custody and that the “Gossip Girl” actress would not be permitted to bring Hermes (9) and Helena (6) back to the USA for any reason.
She’s been in a bitter custody dispute with ex-husband Daniel Giersch for years, and earlier today (August 11) Kelly Rutherford was admonished for not complying with a court order and returning her children to Monaco.
The “Gossip Girl” actress tried to sidestep her legal obligation to put Hermes (8 years old) and Helena (6 years old) on an airplane this past Friday (August 7) and Judge Ellen Frances Gesmer threw the book at her.
The "Melrose Place" star posed for pics in a long-sleeved black and white patterned dress with pointy black heels while the "Pitch Perfect" beauty wore her hair pulled back sporting a black, white, and green dress with black nylons.
It’s going to be a difficult Christmas season for Kelly Rutherford, as she has failed to obtain custody of her two children.
According to a report, the “Gossip Girl” actress was shot down by a family court judge when she petitioned for full custody of Hermes (7) and Helena (4), who currently reside with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch in Monaco.
Lending their support for a good cause, Kelly Rutherford and Marcia Cross attended the Mon Cheri Barbara Tag Gala in Munich, Germany on Wednesday (December 4).
The "Gossip Girl" star looked stunning in a emerald green gown while she smiled ear-to-ear at the shutterbugs waiting for her. Meanwhile, the "Desperate Housewives" dame donned a gorgeous ruby red dress as she made her way into the event's venue.
Divorce is never a pleasant experience, and Kelly Rutherford has spent so much money trying to get primary custody of her children that she’s almost tapped out.
Last year, the “Gossip Girl” star’s son Hermes and daughter Helena were placed with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch, a German businessman who was unable to obtain a visa and hence couldn’t come to the States to live.
