A judge just ruled that Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford, who's embroiled in a nasty divorce battle, can take her kid to N.Y. City while she films the show.
The judge said Kelly can go Sunday and her estranged hubby, Daniel Giersch, is free to travel there as well. He argued he needed to stay in L.A. to do business, but the judge begged to differ. Daniel told the court he will travel to NYC.
Kelly Rutherford filed for divorce on December 30. Their son, Hermes, is two years old. She is also pregnant again with their second child.
Giersch was awarded two overnight visits per week for February and three per week in March. They all need to be back to L.A. for a minimum of four days, at least twice. During L.A. stays, Hermes will alternate between the two parents.
The judge also ruled that Hermes will bounce between NYC and L.A. for two months while the feuding couple tries to hash out a long-term arrangement.
Gossip Girl fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Kelly's character, Lily van der Woodsen, won't be killed off as a result. She had said she was prepared to stay in L.A., whatever the consequences, if she could not take Hermes with her.
