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.

Kelly Rutherford Vows to 'Never Stop Fighting for My Children'

Originally posted 09/01/2012 04:00PM

Locked in an international custody battle since she and Europe-based ex-husband Daniel Giersch divorced in 2009, Kelly Rutherford refuses to give up the fight – even after a judge on Tuesday ruled that the Gossip Girl actress's schedule is flexible enough to allow her to travel back and forth to Monaco to visit her two children.

"I will never stop fighting for my children. They're my babies and they're very young and this is going to affect them profoundly and I want to be there as much as I can to show them that this isn't my fault, this isn't something I wanted, and that's my concerns," Rutherford, 43, said on Saturday's edition of ABC's Good Morning America.

In court on Friday, Rutherford's request for her kids – Hermes, 5, and Helena, 3 – to be brought back to her in New York while she appealed Tuesday's legal decision was denied.
