Exclusive Kelly Rutherford is broke and she”s filed for full-blown bankruptcy, and it looks like her mega-fight over child custody was her Achilles” heel.
Rutherford claims in her legal docs — obtained by our sources — assets totaling $23,937 — dwarfed by debts totaling $2,021,832.
Kelly”s current monthly income is $1,279.33 … way down from her final season on “Gossip Girl” — $486,000. The show recently wrapped.
Here”s the problem — she spent nearly $1.5 mil on legal fees for her bitter divorce/custody war with ex-hubby Daniel Giersch. We”ve learned she”s asking the family law judge to make him pay, but now she”s waving the white flag by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Kelly”s also in the hole for income taxes — more than $350,000 for 2012. Add to that another $25,251 for Amex charges.
Kelly has a total of $11,487 in her checking account, around 5 grand in furniture, 5 grand in clothes and $1,500 in jewelry.
According to docs, she”s borrowed 10″s of thousands of dollars from friends and relatives to dig out of the hole.
The bankruptcy petition was filed last month.
