"Gossip Girl" Divorce Gets Even Nastier

1/20/2009 3:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kelly Rutherford, who plays Lily van der Woodsen on "Gossip Girl," claims her husband is ominous, violent and bad news for their kid.

Rutherford filed legal papers that the judge will consider tomorrow in a showdown hearing. Rutherford's estranged husband, Daniel Giersch, wants the judge to prohibit his soon-to-be ex-wife from taking two-year-old Hermes to NYC to film the show.

Rutherford claims Giersch has gotten into blowout arguments with her, in one case allegedly coming at her. She says he's an avid boxer and kickboxer and she is "intimidated by him."

She also says he's threatened to teach her a lesson by taking the child. She says it's gotten so bad she called the cops twice and he's been forced to leave.

Giersch has claimed the kid is totally stressed out around Rutherford and that she can't be a real mom because her shooting schedule is insane. She says it's just not true.

and she didnt think about all of this before she had not one but two kids with this guy? somehow i doubt he just recently started acting like this. if she was so scared of him she never should have stayed with him long enough to put two kids in this situation. sounds to me there is more to the story. they both are idiots. (the parents,not the kids of course)

Not so famous.....    

The Hollywood trend is...a Baby Bump. Babies as assessories...... Guess that didn't pan out too well in this case...

Why did she lay down with him and get pregnant if he was abusive? She has no one to blame but herself.

you people are morons. most abusive people don't start out abusive...and it's never the victim's fault. show some compassion.

#6 Me, you hit the nail on the head with everything you said. Some parents do not realize the horrible damage they do to their kids are in the middle of a situation like this......... adults that try to hurt each other through their children are reprehensible.

The only one who suffers here is the child. Get it together you 2 losers for the sake of your child!! Anyone who names their child Hermes needs an ass wiping!

When he used that ridiculous lame excuse about her work schedule, it was clear he's a creep (with a stupid lawyer.)
