Ugliest celebrity divorce ever?
Kelly Rutherford of Gossip Girl has been granted a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband the father of her two kids, Daniel Giersch, after, among other things, accusing him of intimidating and threatening her nanny.
He was also being inflexible with his scheduled custody visits and stressing her out so much she's having a hard time breastfeeding, according to the actress.
In a lengthy declaration filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Rutherford states that Giersch doesn't comply when she wants to take their 3-month-old daughter Helena to work with her in the morning so that she can nurse.
"From time to time I have some extra milk, but I never know when that will be... I believe that the stress Daniel has created for me is also negatively impacting my ability to produce milk," said the 40-year-old actress.
Way TMI, Kelly, but what can you do.
Kelly Rutherford and Daniel Giersch in happier times.
For his part, Giersch said in his own court filing Thursday that Rutherford is the one who's switching up the visits on him and he has "concerns that Kelly, her caretakers, and Kelly's mother are causing immediate harm to [their] children."
But he's the one who's got to lie low for awhile.
A judge has ordered Giersch to stay at least 100 yards away from Rutherford, Helena and their son Hermes "except for brief and peaceful contact as required."
The order also extends to nanny Michaela Kothanova, who stated that Giersch was always asking her questions about Kelly and once threatened to sue her.
A hearing on the matter is set for October 15. Rutherford was pregnant with Helena when she filed for divorce in January, citing irreconcilable differences.
The two have been in and out of court ever since, hiring PIs and haggling over the kids' potty-training, pool fences, residency, school, travel, and more.
He also learned online she had their baby. Cold.
