Kelly Rutherford has viciously been fighting her ex-husband Daniel Giersch for custody of their two children since 2009, and it’s put a major dent in her bank account — a dent big enough that she’s had to file for bankruptcy!
According to reports, Kelly has acquired more than $2 million in debt because of legal fees, causing her to file for bankruptcy in May. This comes after a judge’s ruling in August 2012 that Kelly’s two kids would move to France with their father because his visa expired. She’s since been working to get her kids back to the States in her care.
Kelly has recently taken a major, monthly pay cut with Gossip Girl coming to an end, and her assets simply aren’t enough to pay back all the debt she’s acquired.
