The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress is devastated now that her two children, both under 18, have been deported to France to live with their father. Her ex-husband is not a French citizen, and her kids are American — do YOU think that’s fair?
How sad. Kelly Rutherford, 44, revealed to Katie Couric the details of the heart-wrenching child custody battle she’s fighting with her and ex-husband Daniel Giersch. The fight is still ongoing, and her children remain deported in France. The devastated mother of two is now without her only children due to a judge’s decision.
Kelly Rutherford’s Ex Speaks Out In Statement
Kelly expressed her deep concern for her children’s safety, and the unfairness she felt she and her family were subjected to when she visited the Katie Couric Show on April 19.
When Katie’s show reached out to Daniel for a statement, his attorney, Fahi Takesh Hallin said the following in a statement:
Daniel Giersch continues not to comment publicly about the parties’ custody case, in order to protect the children’s privacy.
Kelly Rutherford’s Statement About Her Custody Battle
Kelly, on the other hand, had no problem sharing her story with what she calls a “flawed legal system.” The Gossip Girl star is deeply saddened now that her two children have been deported. What is most disappointing is that they are in France with their father, who has no VISA and isn’t even a French citizen. Kelly begs for change.
Kelly wrote a blog post on Katie Couric’s website:
Although, NY was the only home my children have ever known and the children’s own counsel recommended that the children be allowed to stay in the United States with me, the Judge made a decision in direct contravention of expert opinion. Although my children are US citizens, the fact that they reside in France places them in legal peril.
How heartbreaking! Let us know what YOU think HollywoodLifers, do you think the judge made the right decision?
