Kelly Rutherford's Ex Daniel Giersch Responds to Her Refusal to Send Kids Back to Monaco

Kelly Rutherford's Ex Daniel Giersch Responds to Her Refusal to Send Kids Back to Monaco

Kelly Rutherford‘s ex husband Daniel Giersch is responding to her refusal to send her two children – Hermes, 8, and Helena, 6 – back to Monaco.

Daniel will continue to protect the children from any harm and any media exposure. Unfortunately Kelly has now added child abduction to extortion and false statements on her list of actions. Daniel will make sure that the children’s safety and well being will be restored as soon as possible. He is very concerned about the traumatic impact that Kelly‘s behavior will have on the children. Kelly was to have delivered the children in France to their father on August 7, 2015. Child abduction is a crime, and everyone involved in kidnapping or abducting the children will face the appropriate legal consequences. Anyone associating themselves with Kelly and her abduction is violating the law,” Daniel’s lawyer Fahi Takesh Hallin told E! News in a statement.

Over the weekend, Kelly released a lengthy statement about refusing to return her children to Monaco. There has been a legal battle between Kelly and Daniel for many years over the children.

  • lurker

    she is an idiot

  • FeeFiFoeFum

    I hope they throw her in a jail and a Monaco court revokes her custody rights. What a moron. If she hadn’t lied about Giersch and got his Visa revoked the kids wouldn’t have to live in Monaco in the first place.

  • Baseliner

    she needs to go to jail. if a man stole or kept his children he would already be in jail.

  • Chelsea

    What a terrible person. She caused this problem herself in the first place, and has now basically kidnapped the kids. She belongs in a prison.

  • Ash

    I kinda feel bad for her as a mother but as a person she’s a terrible woman. So the best thing for her to do right now is to obey the law and stop making things more complicated than they already are.

  • millerz

    She finally got them in the US with the plans to never let them leave.

    Poor kids. Be careful who you fall in love with people.. or get into bed with!! The horror stories I hear and see makes me never want to get married lol

  • Meshka

    She didn’t lie about anything! He was being deported not because she lied, hahah …because he had dealings with drugs and firearms in South America..I would do the same! In the end she still brought the kids to see him, and he became stubborn..not a moron, she’s a mom doing her best

  • valerie

    She seems like a very vindictive person. She tried to have this man deported,made up lies about him.. thinking as a u.s. citizen and a women she could manipulate the law and the situation to her benefit. She was clearly wrong. Now she has done what i’m sure Daniel knew she would do, which is to fail to return the children to their home in Monaco. She is now breaking the law and should be put in jail. I think she’s less interested in her children’s well fare and more in punishing her ex.

  • Guesy63549

    Read the case

  • Guesy63549

    Read the case before you make comments, she lied and you are the moron and her little mindless toad.

  • Baseliner

    they can forcefully be taken from her which i think is gonna happen and hopefully she gets put in jail

  • XDeRubicon

    Kelly was not happy with her custody agreement. Welcome to the club. Nobody is, but you have to follow the parenting plan. Like it or not. Then, after failing to get what she wants after six years of trying, she shamelessly inserted herself into the international custody kidnapping discussion. All while she had unobstructed visitation via a US court ordered parenting plan. Now she’s actually kidnapped the kids. Kelly, your case didn’t apply before, but now it does.

    This ends with the kids back in Monaco, Daniel with Sole Physical and Legal custody, and Kelly having supervised visitation. She brought this on herself and will have no one else to blame.

  • rosy

    I can’t feel sorry for her she seem unreasonable just because you are the mother do not give you the right to cut kids out a father’s life if I’m the father I would get the kids and not,let her see them again she needs to stop this I feel if the father was so,bad the judge would never let him have them she looks vindictive and not,thinking about,the kids welfare white trash white privilege thinking,she entitle

  • rosy

    I agree I hope he gets them I was a fan of hers but she thinks the public will go on her side because she the mother girl bye the father should not allow her to see them again from what I gather the father allow her to see them whenever

  • XDeRubicon

    I have a colleague that a version of this happened to. His ex lived in another state and refused to return the kids at the end of her summer visitation. His lawyer and mother (to keep him from the possibility of being baited into a confrontation) and a sheriff showed up on her door step, custody agreement in hand. She caved and handed the kids over, but as I understand it, if she didn’t then the sheriff would have been used as a witness for the charges that would have followed. Then it would have been a Sheriff arresting her and Child Protective Services taking the kids. This isn’t Elian Gonzalez, this will be cut and dried.

    She didn’t do this is some third world country, a country with drastically different parenting standards, or a country that doesn’t respect custody agreements like the one that they have. This ends with the kids back in Monaco, Daniel with Sole physical and Legal custody and in possession of their passports, and Kelly with supervised visitation and likely years away from being able to travel back to the US with the kids in tow.

  • AMERICA

    Aliens being aliens.

  • St

    She should be arrested for child abduction and he should get sole custody. It will be better for children. God know what she tells them about their father when she gets them. Who knew that there can be someone more crazy and stupid then Halle Berry.

    After her court and charges for abduction she should be only allowed to see kids under supervision in Europe.

  • Mental Floss

    Oh, this kind of situation NEVER ends well. Kelly should return the children to their father. She’s not doing herself or the children any favours by keeping them. Definitely NOT a good move.

  • Lil3

    The original custody arrangement was temporary, he was supposed to be working out his visa issues and the children were to live with him in the interim. Three years later, and instead of reapplying like he was supposed to, he filed for sole custody in Monaco. He waited so long, California has relinquished jurisdiction. I think that was probably strategic. I’m pleased to see a loophole for her, since no judge in America has stepped up to the plate to rectify the problem.

  • lady

    I told agree they like the law went it go there way but went they lose they breaking. I know she love her kids but she need to fight for them/ I would like to now why we have laws went people go and break it went they lose.

  • toastie postie

    She brought this all on herself. Poor kids. This is more about herself, not her children.

  • suzybel

    Both of these parents playing tug of war with their kids should be ashamed of themselves. Just wait until they grow up and can decide which parent was right or wrong.

  • Mystery Gamer

    Kelly lie and she disobey court order and as for the visa issue reason the father can renew for a visa because Kelly who was court order has to write affidavit admitting she lie about her ex husband

  • Mystery Gamer

    Exacty

  • Mystery Gamer

    @suzybel:
    The only one who need to grow up is Kelly

  • Mystery Gamer

    @Lil3:
    The reason the father can’t reapply for the visa is because of Kelly who was order by the court to write a affidavit to the state department admitting she lie and made false allegations and the children are already back in Monaco were they belong with their father

  • Magyar Zoltán

    Kelly was ordered by court to write a letter that she is lying about her ex. He cant reapplying because she did not write the letter and send it to immigration service. The court ordered it 3 years ago he is doing the only thing he can
