gossip girl kelly rutherford files for bankruptcy

Damn!

We knew Kelly Rutherford had hit hard times with her divorce and child custody sitch, but we were so hoping it wouldn't get to this.

Unfortunately, despite her Gossip Girl gig, the actress has had to file for bankruptcy!

It's reported she has already spent $1.5 million on legal matters with her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch. And while she's asking a judge to make him pay her costs, she's filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in the meantime.

She now only has assets adding up to $23,937 while her debt is around $2,021,832.

And we're not mathematicians, but those numbers aren't good!

Her children have primarily been living in Monaco with their father, which has also been a financial stress on Kelly.

We just hope these two parents can work things out to make things best for the children involved.

    That's what you get when you're a pretty girl and you marry a rich, pretty guy with no regard for what he's like on the inside.

    Too bad she had her ex deported. She did this all to herself. No need to feel sorry for her.

    She got her husband visa revoked because she though it would help her keep the kids, it back fired! She fought him tooth and nail and it cost her. If she didnt get his visa revoke, he would be still in the US and they could find a peaceful way to co parent. I do feel a little bit bad for her, but she serious mismanaged her money, and she has no one to blame but herself for that.

    She obviously lived beyond her means while she was making decent money. Happens ALL the time, especially in the world of sports. There you see someone get a decent contract, buy a HUGE expensive house and then eventually lose it all to the bank after that contract is up. Same thing when someone's show comes to an end. The money train has left the building!

    He has to pay for her flights and accommodation when she visits the kids in France. That's NOT a cost to her. She has also tried to alienate the kids from their father, which is why they live in France.

    I'm betting she did not mismanage her money. Long, nasty drawn out divorces and lawyers strip parents resources bare. I hope someone in a position to hires her toute suite.
