Kelly Rutherford's Request for Custody of Her Two Kids Denied

Kelly Rutherford's Request for Custody of Her Two Kids Denied

Originally posted 12/13/2013 02:30PM

Kelly Rutherford's attempt to regain custody of her two kids has failed.

A judge has ruled that though Rutherford and her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, technically have joint custody, their children – son Hermes, 7, and daughter, Helena, 4½ – will continue to reside in Monaco, where he lives, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE.

The former Gossip Girl star, 45, plans to appeal the judge's decision.

"It strikes me as outrageous and unconstitutional that children can be effectively deported in order to accommodate their exiled father without knowing why he can't come back in and he has not been required to make any efforts to try to get back to the U.S. by the U.S. courts," she tells PEOPLE.

Levi Johnston Files Petition for Custody of Son with Bristol Palin

The father of Bristol Palin's son is seeking at least equal custody.

Levi Johnston filed a petition for custody last month saying he wants 4-year-old Tripp to be in his mother's and father's lives equally.

The couple had agreed in 2010 that Palin would have primary physical custody and the two would share legal custody, according to Thomas Van Flein, Palin's attorney at that time. Johnston was given visitation and had agreed to pay child support.

Usher's Ex Is 'Angry' But Doesn't Blame Him for Son's Pool Accident

Tameka Foster Doesn't Blame Usher for Son's Pool Accident

Originally posted 08/14/2013 10:35AM

Tameka Foster says she doesn't blame her ex-husband Usher for a pool accident that sent her oldest son to the hospital on Aug. 5. But she is angry that it happened when he was away and she was not there to protect the boy herself.

Speaking to Good Morning America's Dan Abrams on Wednesday, Foster, 42, recounted the dreaded phone call she got from Usher, 34, saying it brought her back to the moment when she lost her son Kile Glover last year in a jet ski accident on Georgia's Lake Lanier.

"I said, 'I've had this call before,' " Foster said Wednesday. "I didn't blame him for it. I was just angry that it happened on his watch. Never have my children been injured on my watch."

Kelly Rutherford's Children Will Stay in Monaco with Her Ex

Kelly Rutherford, Daniel Giersch Ordered to Co-Parent in Monaco

Originally posted 08/29/2012 01:10PM

Since their 2009 divorce, Kelly Rutherford and her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, have been involved in a heated custody battle ... and three years later, it's as nasty as ever.

The bitter dispute spans the globe as Giersch, who lives in Monaco, is barred from returning to the U.S. because of a revoked visa. The Gossip Girl actress, 43, has been fighting for sole custody of Hermes, 5, and Helena, 3, so she may keep them in the country.

On Tuesday, a judge ruled that Rutherford's schedule is flexible enough to allow her to travel back and forth to Monaco to visit her children.

"Kelly is devastated by the court ruling and will never stop fighting for her children," her spokesperson tells PEOPLE. "An appeal is already in the process."

"To protect the children and also Kelly, I have decided to continue not to comment," Giersch tells PEOPLE. His lawyer, Fahi Takesh Hallin, meanwhile says Giersch is "focused on co-parenting the children, and continuing to promote any and all contact of the children with Kelly."
