Kelly Rutherford has been going through some tough times, and it’s only getting worse. She had to get a restraining order from her ex-husband after a brutal divorce, and then she had to file for bankruptcy. And now, worst of all, she’s not getting custody of her kids. From People:
A judge has ruled that though Rutherford and her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, technically have joint custody, their children – son Hermes, 7, and daughter, Helena, 4½ – will continue to reside in Monaco, where he lives, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE.
The former Gossip Girl star, 45, plans to appeal the judge’s decision.
“It strikes me as outrageous and unconstitutional that children can be effectively deported in order to accommodate their exiled father without knowing why he can’t come back in and he has not been required to make any efforts to try to get back to the U.S. by the U.S. courts,” she tells PEOPLE.
Yeah, it’s kind of messed-up, to say the least. I can’t imagine how she’s feeling. She’s had more drama in her real life than she had while she was on Gossip Girl.
I hate when parents use their kids as pawns in their adult battles. Why? Why do people do that?
