Kelly Rutherford Settles Divorce, Custody ... For Now

at . Comments

Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford has settled her custody dispute with her estranged ex Daniel Giersch - at least until their next court date in April 2010.

The Gossip Girl matriarch filed for divorce in December 2008. The couple has two children together - one of whom was born less than two months ago.

Rutherford and Giersch had a heated battle over custody that nearly kept the actress who plays Lily van der Woodsen from filming scenes for Gossip Girl.

Settlement documents have been filed with the court.

Under the terms of the deal, Kelly and Daniel will temporarily relocate from California to New York while she films Gossip Girl - from July 30 through April 5.

She'll live in NYC while he will live in the Hamptons. Neither party is allowed to travel outside of New York or California without the agreement of the other.

The documents say both Daniel and Kelly will attend co-parenting counseling sessions. They will share joint legal and physical custody of the two kids.
