Kelly Rutherford Divulges Painful Details About Her Custody Battle

Kelly Rutherford is opening up about the painful details about her divorce and custody battle with her ex Daniel Giersch, who she shares kids Hermes, 8, and Helena, 6.

Daniel was subtly verbally abusive,” the 46-year-old actress told Vanity Fair. “He was trying to alienate me from everyone in my life—my parents, my brother.”

“I didn’t want any money from Daniel,” Kelly said of her divorce. “I wanted us both to be great parents. I wasn’t asking for full custody. Daniel made me go through a custody evaluation while I was pregnant. He sued me like he’d sued Google. He served me custody papers right up until I went into labor.”

Hermes says, ‘Mommy, I don’t want to go back and forth.’ My children and I have lost years of dailiness. How do you get those years back? There is no way I am not going to fight to get my children back.”

Kelly‘s former co-star on Gossip Girl Ed Westwick also spoke to the mag.

“She was how you would want your ideal mother to be. Most of the rest of us were teenagers and she was like our mother,” Ed said.

    Has she moved to the country where the kids live most of the time yet? Or is still trying to beat her ex husband rather than being able to be close to the kids every day.

  • Sassypants

    I found it interesting how everyone online has bashed her without knowing any details. I always assumed there was more going on than her just trying to keep her kids, which in itself makes sense as a mother. If these things are true he sounds like a monster.

  • Dl Quigley

    the details are in the court documents that are available for anyone to read.. not in one-sided gossip site and magazine articles.

    Says the woman who refused to put the name of her daughter’s father on her birth certificate several times.It is the LA court who wrote it

  • Jezza

    She’s accusing him of alienating people from her life?? Pretty rich, considering she’s done everything to alienate Daniel from their kids’ lives, and he’s the one maintaining the relationship between her and the kids. Just sounds like sour grapes because she expected her shenanigans from this summer to work out for her.

    I haven’t seen the divorce papers, but I don’t recall her ever claiming this before, and she’s accused him of more and worse. She’s hurled so many accusations at him, that it feels like she’s throwing things out there and hoping something sticks. She knows he’s private, and not one to go to the media to respond to her (many) accusations.

    So what about Rachel bilson and her child. There seen there are no negotiations about how much time Hayden can spend with the child or child support. So what is going on with her her. It seens Hayden spend more time in Canada than being with the little girl. He only come here for work and he and Rachel never spent time with the child in la that she keep people from seeing the baby. Don’t know why women get men from other places. Hayden only mention the child cause he was promoting the movie 90minutes in heaven. Just because Rachel wanted him to mention her. And she went to Canada and took pictures. They never be seen together with each other are the child. Trouble in paradise with these two for months now since the child was born. Hope this don’t happen about the child like this. No one discuss what goes on with them.

  • Sassypants

    Well that’s sad that those kids are suffering because of this drama. I don’t care enough to read the court documents but hopefully the judge will make the best decision for the kids and both parents can raise them peacefully.

  • shoes4life

    She is a real piece of work.

    Dumb bitch

    Daniel just got sole custody. Hope Monaco courts does not require Daniel to pay her way anymore for visits.

  • k op

    Have you investigated the details of the court decision that gave Kelly and Daniel 50/50 custody like almost every other divorced couple with children? If you had, then you would know exactly why Daniel was given physical custody of the children. Also, if Kelly care so much for her children she would be in France right now, seeing them all the time and not “missing years of her children’s lives”.

  • k op

    Kelly is unlikely to forgo the drama as it’s become a money maker for her. Daniel has not brought any drama to the table. He keeps his opinions to himself and the kids out of the media. It’s truly horrible for those children that their mother is less concerned about them and finds her media imprint to be more important.

  • lawgrrl34

    Vanity Fair, Hollywood Reporter, Just Jared … Sounds like she is doing her level best to mitigate the fact that she pissed off several jurisdictions in her flouting of the custody orders in her case. She takes advantage of the fact that her former husband refuses to speak publicly against her.

  • Escoffier

    Every single judge has made the best decision and that is for the dad to have custody. Read the decision and you will know exactly what Rutherford has been doing from day 1. She never changes.

  • YUSS

    LOL. Thank you, Just jared, for showing us how biased you can be! We’ve read the court documents! She’s shady as hell! The kids are better without her.

  • YUSS

    Then keep your uninformed and wrong opinions to yourself then.

  • GamerGirlSlayer

    Unlike you people who are bashing Kelly have read the court documents and see Kelly for what she is a manipulative hateful bitter woman

  • GamerGirlSlayer

    Six judges have agree best interested of the children are with their father

  • JustMyOpinion

    This wacko literally rewrites history in the daily! So now he’s abusive? Well that’s interesting bc on her Oh Poor Me world tour of tv interviews she NEVER mentioned this. Now just days before her court hearing Monaco and BOOM! A new version of history.

  • toastie postie

    She’s a whacko. I fear for the children. She started this whole mess and refuses to accept responsibility for what lies she and her lawyer said, to get his visa revoked. She’s the one holding up his visa being renewed. Like you said she’s rewriting the history of this mess she made.

  • toastie postie

    ITA!

  • toastie postie

    Read the court documents.

  • toastie postie

    She’s the one that started all this drama. If you don’t care enough to do your homework before blaming everyone for “bashing” her, as you say, why comment?

  • Legendary Trolly

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! Yall going in on her Lol

  • Nancy

    I think its for the best interest of her children that she gets supervised visits.

  • Nancy

    it seems she got herself pregnant.

  • Nancy

    she divulges painful details about custody. she has nothing more to divulge. we have seen this over and over. she is sounding like a very broken record. she is a whacko…

  • Lilly Sue

    I think Monaco needs to take her parental rights away. I have never seen a picture of Daniel with the kids on Monaco. Daily Mail or some Rutherford pimp took some of the girl at school and published them yesterday.

    Kelly is horrible.

  • The Doctor (5th)

    To be fair, the VISA is a non-issue now. Since she didn’t comply with her part and he didn’t do anything about her non-compliance, it effectively “waived”(as of Jan 2014).

    …Even after a judge ordered her to do so.
