Kelly Rutherford’s Kids Are Being Deported?!

67th Annual Cannes Film Festival - Portraits

Former Gossip Girl star, Kelly Rutherford, is in a BITTER custody battle with her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch.  The stakes have reached a new level, now that Giersch resides in France… with the kids.  Unfortunately for Rutherford, a judge in Los Angeles granted the father primary custody of their two children (ages 5 and 7) – so he is entitled to keep them across the pond with him.

In new legal docs — obtained by TMZ — Rutherford claims sending her kids out of the country creates an immigration issue — and that’s beyond the scope of a state judge’s power.

Rutherford wants a federal judge to invalidate the state order and give her custody so the children can remain in the U.S.

And the actress says … if she doesn’t win in court her only recourse is to defy the judge and keep her kids. She acknowledges she’ll get in trouble but claims that would be her only option.

Ugly ugly ugly.  I hope these two are keeping the kids’ best interests at stake.  Rutherford filed for bankruptcy last summer, due to the heavy legal debt she has incurred, to the tune of $2 million!

Kelly Rutherford files for bankruptcy after child custody war bleeds her dry.

‘Gossip Girl’ actress Kelly Rutherford is broke, and has just filed for bankruptcy. How is that possible, considering her years of acting, including five years on ‘Gossip Girl?’

Turns out a very nasty divorce and custody battle is what did her in. Kelly and her ex-husband, German businessman Daniel Giersch, share 50/50 custody of their two children: son Hermes, 6, and daughter Helena, 4. Trouble is – a judge ruled the children would reside with Daniel in Monaco, since his Visa to the United States has been revoked. (Rumor has it this was due to allegations Kelly made against him.) In order for Kelly to see her children, she has to fly to Monaco to visit them.

Earlier this year she admitted she was broke, because she had spent “every penny from Gossip Girl, my pension, my stocks….fighting for my children.” At the time she had even sold her own apartment, and was living with friends. Now the actress has filed for bankruptcy.

Kelly Rutherford is broke and she’s filed for full-blown bankruptcy, and it looks like her mega-fight over child custody was her Achilles’ heel.

Rutherford claims in her legal docs — filed with the court and obtained by TMZ — assets totaling $23,937 — dwarfed by debts totaling $2,021,832.

Kelly’s current monthly income is $1,279.33 … way down from her final season on “Gossip Girl” — $486,000. The show recently wrapped.

Here’s the problem — she spent nearly $1.5 mil on legal fees for her bitter divorce/custody war with ex-hubby Daniel Giersch. We’ve learned she’s asking the family law judge to make him pay, but now she’s waving the white flag by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Kelly’s also in the hole for income taxes — more than $350,000 for 2012. Add to that another $25,251 for Amex charges.

Kelly has a total of $11,487 in her checking account, around 5 grand in furniture, 5 grand in clothes and $1,500 in jewelry.

According to docs, she’s borrowed 10′s of thousands of dollars from friends and relatives to dig out of the hole.

The bankruptcy petition was filed last month.

No matter how you look at it, this is just really sad. As a mother – I know I would do whatever it took to be with my kids, including filing bankruptcy. I cannot imagine what it would be like to have your children living on another continent. Can you imagine being told you’re the one who can visit your children?? Not even to mention the toll this takes on her children. Kids from a broken home already have it so rough – imagine having your home broken to this extent. So sad….sad for everyone.

Blake Lively rocks a see-through dress at the ‘Gossip Girl’ 100th Episode party!

Blake Lively turned heads on Saturday when she showed up at the ‘Gossip Girl’ 100th episode party wearing a see-through gown, by Marchesa. (Are you as surprised as I am that ‘Gossip Girl’ has lasted this long!?)

I’m kind of surprised she didn’t wear Chanel, since she’s the face of the clothing line.

Leighton Meester looks pretty – but Blake certainly steels the show. Even if you’re not a fan of Blake’s dress, it’s certainly more interesting that Leightons.

Also pictured: the boys of ‘Gossip Girl’, Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick and Chase Crawford. Costars Kelly Rutherford & Michelle Trachtenberg were also on hand.
