We told you earlier this week that Kelly Rutherford's custody trial was not going well.
The court decided that Kelly's two children with French citizen Daniel Giersch would remain in his custody in France.
Even knowing what a hardship it would be for the Gossip Girl star to hop across the pond on a regular basis, the judge still thought it best the children stay put. The judge said:
"Even while under the scrutiny of an extended trial, Kelly still has declined to demonstrate the level of commitment to facilitating the relationship that would be required of a residential parent in a relocation situation."
Kelly denies the judge's harsh assessment, but mostly is just upset at the thought of being kept so far from her kids. Her rep tells us:
"Kelly is gratified by the outpouring of support she's received and is devastated that her American citizen children were ordered to live overseas to accommodate their father because he's banned from entering the U.S."
Kelly will appeal the ruling this afternoon. We hope they can come to a sensible solution!
