Their Parents’ Relationship

Kelly Rutherford and her partner, Daniel Giersch first met in 2006 and soon started dating. A few months into their relationship, Rutherford became pregnant with Hermes.

The duo walked down the aisle in August 2006. They were together for two years.

Daniel was subtly verbally abusive.

He was trying to alienate me from everyone in my life—my parents, my brother.

The duo parted ways in 2008 and Rutherford filed for divorce in late December of the same year citing irreconcilable differences.

Custody Battle

The Gossip Girl star, Kelly, and her former partner, German businessman, Daniel, agreed to share their children’s custody. However, things got worse when Daniel was deported from the US in 2012 after his visa got revoked.

During this time, Rutherford had filed for bankruptcy claiming that her legal efforts to keep her kids in the US had cost her over $1.5 million.

In August of the same year, a California court ordered their kids to live with their father in Monaco. Three years later, in 2015, Rutherford received sole custody of their children.

Prior to that, the Scream 3 actress also got a restraining order against Giersch because of accusations that he threatened her nanny and jeopardized her ability to breastfeed.

In July 2015, a California judge ruled against the decision because Kelly was living in New York at the time. The actress then filed a case in a New York court seeking the custody of their kids, but it ruled against her because it didn’t have jurisdiction.

Meanwhile, a Monaco court ordered full custody of their kids to their father in December 2015. In 2018, after a 10 years-long custody battle, Daniel put his Cannes property on the market for a whopping £11.25 million.
