'Gossip Girl' Mom Granted Restraining Order

9/24/2009 8:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Kelly Rutherford was granted a temporary restraining order against her ex Daniel Giersch.

According to documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Kelly claims Daniel has repeatedly harassed both her and their nanny -- which she claims forced the nanny to quit.

The documents list Giersch as 39-years-old, white, and "thin."

Geirsch must stay 100 yards away from Kelly, her mother, the nanny, and Kelly's home, job and vehicle -- "except for brief & peaceful contact as required for court-ordered visitation."

In the docs, it says "Daniel has begun to follow me, my mother, my nanny and he shows up unexpectedly to threaten and scare us."

Kelly also claims Daniel "has harassed [my nanny] with questions about me virtually every time he sees her ... last week Daniel's harassment of [the nanny] led to an actual threat that he is going to file a lawsuit against her."

After that, Kelly says the nanny handed in her pink slip, causing her two kids -- Hermes and Helena -- to lose someone they "love and trust."

Big shocker there... the guy seems off balance. She should go back to her ex whom she dumped after he got sick. She deserves everything she gets.

He was probably after the kids, not her. Though he must have uttered some pretty nasty threats if a judge granted a restraining order.

Hey, where's CHEF KOOKY? I don't see any of his posts...and what about CRAZY KOOKY CLOWN?

Message to Kelly,

If and when your ex gets shared custody and he has possession of those kids, you better have a tight agreement that he does not take the kids out of the local jurisdiction.

Should this guy take off for Germany, his home country, YOU WILL NEVER SEE THOSE CHILDREN AGAIN.

Because Germany protects, shields, and hides German parents from the custodial foreign parent (that's you) and will side with him 100% all the time. Don't expect the american embassy in germany to help much if any.

Germany is major screwed up with child custody laws. You can say the same for middle eastern countries which shield fathers from european or american mothers that want their kidnapped kids back.

If I were you, I would let him get as far as the airport with his german passport then have your security people stop him. Next go straight to court to strip custody permanently.

Kelly & Daniel,

Both of you need to grow up and behave like adults. There are two innocent children here that did not ask for EITHER of you for parents. Your long-drawn out bickering will come back to haunt you both later, and your children will HATE you BOTH for it!! GROW UP GET YOURSELVES THE COUNCILING YOU NEED TO MOVE ON!!!

I HATE THIS GUY , he is a Naaaazi who loves filing lawsuits , check out his past and how many he has attempted to sue.
His middle name is most likely ' Litigate ' .
He is a very angry and vengeful gold digger , he is the epitome of the skum of the Earth and he has a dangerous side.

Good for you Kelly , now it's on public record that he is a freak that needs to be ordered by law to keep away from you .
Guys like this deserve to reside six feet under.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

Hopefully, he sees she is off balance and he is too.Leave her alone.You don't reason with a nutcase. Read up on Kelly Ruhterford.She was placed in the same situatuion her kids are being placed in. Kelly's mom fought her father tooth and nail.Now, Kelly is happily maried to her mom and they have two kids.


Germanguy,should see his kids,as appointed by court. Don't seeher or communicate with her.Laywers can do that.

As time increases, yrs.,go to court and increase the custody time he can seehis kmids. Be a good father.

people forget,kids grow up.18 yrs. will be here before you know it. Shoot,14-16 yrs.,the kids can make up their minds.
