My heart breaks for Kelly Rutherford. Today is the end of her summer with her kids, Hermes and Helena: she has to board a flight with them to fly back to Monaco, where they live with their father. As you can imagine, she’s not happy about it in the slightest.
A source said that Kelly is “beside herself.”
Kelly truly doesn’t know with certainty when she can ever see them [the children] again, as the Principality of Monaco will soon be considering her ex’s petition to obtain sole custody.”
I can understand Kelly’s fear, especially since courts in both California and New York have declined to hear her custody case, saying they don’t have jurisdiction since the children live with their father in Monaco.
However, the kids spent the summer here in the US on the order of a judge in Monaco, so that seems like a good sign. The Monaco judge seems to value having the children spend time with their mother. Daniel Giersch, Kelly’s ex and the children’s father, reportedly has a petition before the court for sole custody, but the petition might not be successful. Hopefully this will work out.
