Kelly Rutherford: Daniel Giersch Exploited Kids With Airport Photo-Op

by at . Comments

Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford's custody battle with ex Daniel Giersch has taken another bizarre turn after she arrived at a French airport to visit her kids Sunday, only to find celebrity gossip photographers waiting for her.

Rutherford has an idea who tipped photogs off about her whereabouts.

The star believes Giersch set up the photo op of Hermes, 5, and Helena, 3, against court orders. The two kids live with him in France as he has primary custody ... but he's also banned from the U.S., meaning Kelly has to go to France to visit.

Her spokesperson David Goldin tells E! News:

"If indeed it is true that the father staged hit photo op in violation of the court order after being banned by the government from entering the United States, the facts continue to make this situation more bizarre than Gossip Girl episodes could ever be."

Giersch's attorney Fahi Hallin responds:

"Mr. Giersch absolutely did not do any such set up. As to the circumstances regarding my client's Visa, he does not wish to comment ... because he wants and has always wanted to keep maximum privacy for the sake of the children."

Days after a judge ruled that her children would relocate to Europe, Kelly told GMA she would appeal, and that "I will never stop fighting for my children."

"They're my babies, 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 concludes the latest chapter in one of the ugliest celebrity breakups yet.

I agree with Kelly, the sign Super Mama and all the balloons just a big put on to make him look like Father of the year.Those 2 little children are far to young to have thought of that big show on their own and much to young to write the sign.That man is a snake in the grass,I bet she is sorry she ever met him just like Halle berry is about the father of her little girl.The women would not regret their children only their FATHERS.Good Luck Kelly and women every where be very very careful who you have children with because you have to put up with fools for a long long time.


America get it straight; some sources saying the kids are living in France and some saying in Monaco. So how is it? France or Monaco? 2 different countries!!!

@ Martina

Monaco is actually an area in France...


She actually named her kid Hermes???? Lol!

Avatar not buying it. I saw the photos and they actually made Kelly look good with a perfect (scripted?) mother-child reunion. What would her ex gain by this?
