When it comes to custody battles, courts often favor moms. In the case of Kelly Rutherford, however, it was Dad who came out on top.
A judge ruled that Kelly’s ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, can keep 5-year-old Hermes and 3-year-old Helena… at his home in France. Since his visa was revoked, Daniel is not permitted to return to the US.
Sources say the Gossip Girl star is “devastated.” She was spotted with the kids last month in France and has been fighting to bring them back to the US.
The judge said that Kelly has a right to the children 50 percent of the time and that her flexible schedule enables her to travel to France to spend time with her kids.
Kelly plans to appeal the ruling.
What do you think of the judge’s decision?
