Yesterday in Monaco, a judge handed full custody of Kelly Rutherford’s kids, 9-year-old Hermes and 6 -year-old Helena, to their dad Daniel Giersch and they also ruled that she can’t ever take them out of the country. Kelly’s kids have been living in Monaco with their father for years and from now on, she has to go there to visit with them. Daniel had to leave the US after his visa was revoked when someone in Kelly’s legal team reported his alleged shady business dealings to the State Department. Kelly and her lawyer have been trying to win the right for her to bring her AMERICAN CITIZEN children back to AMERICA where AMERICAN CITIZENS belong, but the judge denied that request. TMZ says that the judge wrote in their ruling that they were afraid she’d Not Without My Daughter them.
As everyone who has been following this disaster of a saga knows, Kelly’s children used to be able to visit her in the US during holidays and the summer, but she fucked that right up a few months ago. Hermes and Helena spent this past summer with Kelly in NYC and when it came time to send them back home to Monaco, she didn’t do it. She refused. Kelly was dragged into a court room in NYC where a judge handed Hermes and Helena over to Daniel’s mom who took them back to Monaco. The judge in Monaco was afraid she’d deliver a sequel to that stunt:
In a written ruling, obtained by TMZ, the judge said there was “a strong risk of the children’s abduction and retention in the United States” — translation, there was a big chance she’d flee with the kids.
Kelly hasn’t released a statement about this yet. I’m guessing that she’s resting her voice and sipping hot water with lemon to prepare her vocal cords for when she and Dan Abrams scream about this wrong shit to the media during their press tour. But Kelly did put this up on Instagram.
Kelly has appealed, so you know what they say. It’s not over until the blond actress is arrested and imprisoned for tackling President Obama while begging him to declare war on Monaco in retaliation for this injustice.
