Kelly Rutherford Custody News: ‘Gossip Girl’ Star Gains Full Custody of Her Children
Kelly Rutherford has been in an ongoing custody battle with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch. This battle has lasted almost ten years. Though Kelly and Daniel have been through a lot, their two children are the ones that suffered the most in the end.
These children have lived with Kelly and then with their dad. Their dad actually took them out of the country. Now, the California court has given Kelly full custody. Her two children are on their way back to the United States, and she believes this is the best thing in the world.
There are many people, however, who are telling Kelly not to have a surprise party yet. There is an emergency hearing set in the near future. This means Kelly only has sole custody until the day of that hearing. The judge will then decide if the children will stay with Kelly or go with their father. Many suggest the children will stay with the mother, or there will be a logical custody schedule put in place so that both parents are able to see the children equally throughout the year. Now that the case in being held in California, spectators believe the judge presiding over the case will not let the kids leave the country.
In Kelly’s heart, she hopes her ex-husband does not even show up to the hearing. However, she knows he is the father of her children and has a right to them. She just wants her children with her all the time because of how much love she has for them.
