Kelly Rutherford Files for Bankruptcy

Hoping for a fresh financial start, Kelly Rutherford filed for bankruptcy last month, according to TMZ.

The “Gossip Girl” star accumulated debt in the amount of $2,021,832 with about $1.5 million of that from legal fees over custody issues with ex-husband Daniel Giersch.

As for the rest of the debt, the 44-year-old actress owes over $350,000 for 2012 income taxes and $25,251 in American Express bills.

Though she made $486k for her final season on the hit series, Kelly states that her current monthly income is merely $1,279.33.

Having little to show for the spending, Ms. Rutherford listed only $5k in furniture, $5k in clothing, and $1.5k in jewelry in addition to the $11,487 in her bank account.
