Divorce is never a pleasant experience, and Kelly Rutherford has spent so much money trying to get primary custody of her children that shes almost tapped out.
Last year, the Gossip Girl stars son Hermes and daughter Helena were placed with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch, a German businessman who was unable to obtain a visa and hence couldnt come to the States to live.
Since then, Kelly has been fighting a legal battle that has cost her more in lawyer bills than she can afford.
Ms. Rutherford told press, “Every penny from Gossip Girl, my pension, my stocks has been spent fighting for my children. This fight has brought me to the brink of bankruptcy.”
Back in 2009, Kelly and Daniel decided to split, and she didnt go after him for his fortune. “I said, “I don”t want any money. I don”t want anything. Let”s figure out a great plan for the kids. The relationship was obviously not working. And four years later, this is where I am.”
