I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but one thing is clear: Kelly Rutherford is NOT backing down. Last week she announced that she would not return her children, Hermes and Helena, to Monaco to live with their father despite a Monaco court order. The children’s father, Daniel Giersch, accused her of kidnapping. Kelly’s hitting back at that accusation.
Despite the pictures we saw over the weekend of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck hitting the mall with their three kids, it looks like things might be a bit more tense behind the scenes. After spending Saturday afternoon at the mall, Jennifer was spotted arriving at an Atlanta hotel alone. Uh-oh.
On Friday, the late Bobbi Kristina Brown’s conservator filed an amendment to the $40 million civil lawsuit against Nick Gordon, alleging that he was directly responsible for her death by giving her a “toxic cocktail” after an argument and then putting her in the bathtub and holding her face underwater. Nick’s attorney responded to the latest allegations.
Kelly Rutherford is offering a more in-depth explanation for why she refuses to return her children, Hermes and Helena, to Monaco, per the Monaco court’s order. She alleges that her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, was violating the terms of their custody agreement.
Yesterday Kelly Rutherford announced in a statement that she would not take her children, Hermes and Helena, back to Monaco, violating the court order that allowed her children to come spend the summer with her in the United States. Now her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, has responded.
Oh no: I was afraid this was going to happen. Kelly Rutherford is refusing to return her children to Monaco, defying a court order to fly her children back to the country yesterday, despite the fact that two courts in the US (California and New York) have refused to hear her custody case, saying Monaco has jurisdiction.
