Kelly Rutherford Obtains Restraining Order Against Husband

by at . Comments

Making a late push for ugliest celebrity divorce in recent memory, Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford has been granted a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband the father of her two kids, Daniel Giersch.

She's accusing him of intimidating and threatening her nanny.

He was also being inflexible with his scheduled custody visits and stressing her out so much she's having a hard time breastfeeding, according to the actress.

In a lengthy declaration filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Rutherford states that Giersch doesn't comply when she wants to take their 3-month-old daughter Helena to work with her so that she can nurse.

"From time to time I have some extra milk, but I never know when that will be... I believe that the stress Daniel has created for me is also negatively impacting my ability to produce milk," said the 40-year-old Kelly.

Giersch said in his own court filing Thursday that Kelly Rutherford is the one switching up visits on him and he has "concerns that Kelly, her caretakers, and Kelly's mother are causing immediate harm to [their] children."

But he's the one who's got to lie low for awhile - at least 100 yards away from Rutherford, Helena and their son Hermes, according to a judge.

A hearing on the matter is set for October 15. Rutherford was pregnant with Helena when she filed for divorce in January. She recently gave birth, and is currently on maternity leave from Gossip Girl.

I think its all bull shit because she was just on rachel ray, and rachel said all these rumors and she told the truth about all of them, even ones that made her look good she denied. I feel bad for her because you can tell she is genuine and a good person and just cares about kids and the press just wont leave them alone and brings the little kids into it.


hm yeah we believe on you=) but come on people i have to say, i dont really believe everything what the press told me.. hm.. sometimes the press speaks nonsense about so many things hm...


Stay strong kelly!! p.s.- is it me or do they look like they could be related?




Hang in there Kelly!
