Ugh, this is so heartbreaking. Kelly Rutherford took her adorable children out for one final meal before their departure to Monaco to live with their father, millionaire Daniel Girsch, indefinitely.
Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford, 46, took her kids Hermes, 8, and Helena, 5 out for an emotional dinner in NYC on August 5. The mother-of-two had custody of her children for the summer, but they were to be returned to Monaco on August 6 to live with their dad. She’s “beside herself” with sadness, according to a report — find out more.
“Kelly is beside herself. Kelly truly doesn’t know with certainty when she can ever see them [the children] again, as the Principality of Monaco will soon be considering her ex’s petition to obtain sole custody,” a source told Perez Hilton. See the pics of Kelly and her kids on their final night HERE.
Kelly was granted custody of their kids for the summer, but on July 23, a Monaco judge ruled Daniel the right to regain custody of their 2 children. The former couple has been fighting this custody battle for three years now, and sadly, it looks like Kelly is on the losing end.
In order to regain custody, Daniel claimed Kelly made “fraudulent statements” and “lied” in order to get custody of Hermes and Helena.
Here’s a little background of Kelly and Daniel’s relationship: they got married in 2006 and filed for divorce in 2008. They were awarded joint custody of their children, but in 2012, a judge ruled that the children should live in Monaco with their father because his visa to live in the United States had been revoked. Kelly has been fighting to move them back home ever since.
