Can you even believe she’s still having to deal with this heartbreak?!
Gossip Girl actress Kelly Rutherford has been going through an international custody battle with her ex-husband Daniel Griesch, over their two kids.
When the couple split up in 2012, the California judge ruled that the kids would live with their father in France, even though he was being forced to leave the US because of issues with his visa.
Well, now the kids are visiting their mom in New York, and she’s filed an emergency motion for her kids to be able to stay with her because they were "illegally deported!"
In the petition, Kelly asks the Attorney General Eric Holder to give her "temporary emergency authority," going on to say:

Poor Kelly Rutherford!!!
The Gossip Girl actress is on the "brink of bankruptcy" because of a ongoing custody battle for her kids that shows no signs of stopping!
Rutherford has a son named Hermes and a daughter named Helena who live with their father Daniel Giersch in Monaco.
And even though the mother shares joint custody with her ex - a judge ruled last summer that her children should live primarily with their father, and Rutherford barely gets to see them!

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!
