Kelly Loses Her Kids: Angry Judge Orders a Distraught Rutherford's Children Be Returned to Monaco Immediately
Originally posted 08/11/2015 11:05AM
Kelly Rutherford's children are on their way back to Monaco with their paternal grandmother after a New York Supreme Court judge upheld the custody order Tuesday.
The actress appeared in court this morning to face the consequences of refusing to send her children back to Monaco on Friday.
"Basically nothing has changed. The court order in California that was then entered in Monaco remains consistent, the children primarily reside with Mr. Giersch in Monaco," Ira Garr, an attorney for Rutherford's ex-husband Daniel Giersch, told reporters after the hearing Tuesday. "Ms. Rutherford is free to visit anytime she wants and she has certain specified times under the agreement, but she had indicated at one point that she would like to come at the end of the summer so they can take the children to school together. He has been perfectly accommodating to whatever request she has made. He just wanted to make sure the children were coming back as they were supposed to."
Garr and Giersch's other lawyer, Robert Michaels, said Rutherford also gave Giersch's mother the children's U.S. passports.
Wearing a crisp white shirt and pants and a cream cardigan wrapped across her shoulders, Rutherford looked somber as she entered the courtroom alone – she initially did not bring her children, a move that angered the judge on the case.
