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.

Kelly Rutherford Refuses to Send Her Kids Back to Monaco

Kelly Rutherford has put her foot down and decided that she will not send her kids back to Monaco despite a court order that says she must.

The 46-year-old actress was supposed to fly her two kids – Hermes, 8, and Helena, 6 – back to Monaco to be with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch on Thursday, but never made the trip.

“These past three years waiting for my children to come home have been very difficult. My children were forced to leave the United states in 2012 when they were only 2 and 5 years old,” Kelly told People. “In May, a judge in California gave me sole custody and brought them home. I am immensely grateful and overjoyed to have them back. Since May, however, the court proceedings have been confusing.”

Kelly added that because neither California or New York, where she tried getting her case heard, will claim jurisdiction, “no state in this country is currently protecting my children. It also means that no state in this country currently requires me to send the children away. Hence, I have decided that I cannot lawfully send my children away from the United States to live in a foreign country.”

Kelly Rutherford's Custody Case Denied in New York Court - Read Her Statement

Kelly Rutherford is speaking out about her case to regain custody of her two children Hermes, 8, and Helena, 6 with ex husband Daniel Giersch after now being denied by a New York court.

“Neither California or N.Y.C. are taking jurisdiction. So who in the U.S. has jurisdiction of my America-born U.S. citizen children?” the 46-year-old actress told People. “They were sent there by California temporarily to accommodate Daniel’s visa issue, and now California won’t bring them home.”

“It’s just incredible as an American mom with America-born children,” she added. “My forefathers fought for this country and the freedoms we enjoy.”

Kelly‘s two children currently live with their father in Monaco during the year and are spending their summer in the US with her.

Kelly Rutherford Walks Red Carpet With Her Adorable Kids!

Kelly Rutherford walks the red carpet at the OCRF’s Super Saturday event on Saturday (July 25) in Water Mill, N.Y.

The 46-year-old former Gossip Girl actress was joined at the event by her two children – Hermes, 8, and Helena, 6, – and their cute dog.

Kelly is in the midst of a custody battle with her ex Daniel Giersch and just a few days ago she was hit with some devastating news. The judge in California ruled that she does not have the jurisdiction to fight for custody of the kids in that state as a judge in Monaco already granted Daniel full custody.

FYI: Kelly and Helena are both wearing Calypso St. Barth dresses.

Kelly Rutherford Loses Right to Fight for Custody of Her Kids

Devastating news has just come in for Kelly Rutherford – she has officially lost her bid to fight for custody of her two children in the state of California.

A judge in Monaco – where her ex Daniel Giersch and kids Hermes, 8, and daughter Helena, 6 – are currently residing, had already given him full custody of the children.

“We are extremely disappointed with the Ruling,” her attorney told Us Weekly. “Although the Court agreed with our analysis of the law, and in fact agreed with our position that citizens can have more than [one] residence for jurisdictional purposes, the Court ultimately did not agree with us on the facts.”

Daniel and Kelly have been in a custody battle for six years and in 2013, it was determined by the courts that he would no longer have to fly the kids from Monaco to the States to visit their mom. Currently, Hermes and Helena are in New York City with their mom for the summer.

Kelly was originally granted sole custody of the children back in May.
