Kelly Rutherford Loses Six-Year Child Custody Battle

Kelly Rutherford_After six years of court filings and legal battling, actress Kelly Rutherford of the TV show Gossip Girl has been denied having her children returned to her in the US from living with their father in France.


From the initial ruling, a California judge had sent Rutherford’s children, 8 year-old Hermes and 5 year-old Helena, to France to live with their father, Daniel Giersch. The two were supposed to have joint shared custody of the two children, but the long distance made the custody transfer difficult.  Additionally, Giersch is not allowed to enter the US, making the entire situation much more difficult.


Giersch was supposed to be filing for a new Visa in order to be able to reenter the US, but hasn’t taken any action toward it and isn’t under any legal requirements to do so.


Rutherford had started the long custody battle in order to bring her children back to the US, and had even filed for bankruptcy in 2013 because of it, but she still ended up losing the case.  Not being able to be her children’s mother, she says, is tearing her apart.
