Kelly Rutherford

My Ex Is EXPLOITING

Our Kids

EXCLUSIVE

0904_kelly_rutherford_02Kelly Rutherford's ex-husband set up a photo op at a French airport on Sunday where the actress arrived to visit her children ... violating a court order in the process -- or so Kelly is telling friends.

One of Kelly's close friends -- who recently spoke to the actress in France -- tells TMZ, the "Gossip Girl" star was shocked when she saw photos of her arrival at the airport in Nice this weekend surfacing on the Internet, and believes her ex is to blame for leaking her location.

The friend says Kelly believes ... if her ex Daniel Giersch really did set up the shot -- it would be a violation of a court order against exposing the couple's kids to the media.

In the photos, Kelly looks happy -- hugging her kids while they wave a sign reading "Welcome Super Mama" -- but now, she's super pissed.

As you know, Kelly and her ex are embroiled in a bitter custody war. A judge recently named Giersch the "residential parent," meaning the kids have to live in France because he's banished from the U.S.  Kelly still lives in the States, and has to fly to France to see her kids for her half of the custody share.

Kelly plans to fight the ruling. Reps for both Kelly and Giersch had no comment.

Airports are filled with everyday travelers and professional photographers every day all of whom could take a photo. My ex bought our kids flowers and balloons to greet me at the airport (because they wanted to, not because he wanted to). So I'm sorry I don't buy Kelly's sob story. The fact that Daniel even came to the airport with all she has done to his reputation speaks volumes. Get over yourself Kelly!!!!

The kids look really happy. They are very young. That happy will not last if she pulls this b.s. I would move to France if it meant seeing my kids on a regular basis, but I would not take away their happiness.

This man the children are so happy to see, are smiling at, is their uncle, Kelly's brother, who traveled with her to France. It is not their father.

She probably set it up, herself, to manufacture an excuse to bitch some more. Photos of the kids--big deal. Compared to her attempts to completely alienate the father? Psh. Get over yourself and taste your own medicine, Rutherford.

This girl is off her rocker. She tried keeping the kids from thier father for a long time, finally the court go involved and let them stay with the father, now she wants to make trouble. She should get together with Halle Berry, they are both "father haters" and are both way crazy!!!!!!

Seriously    

She is NOT the one that got kicked out of the country for FRAUD. He did. The judge should have ruled the kids stay with her and she escorts them on a plane every so often to see their dad. Children at this age, need their moms (period!) This whole airport arrival seems VERY set up and I can't imagine she would be the ones to call the paps while he just happpens to bring the kids with over the top signs and "Super" cute Hello Kitty balloons. PAAAALEEEZZZ! By the way, if your husband was a lying CON, would you do everything in your power to keep your kids safe from him or his
people" that he associates with? She is a Mother and is protecting her babies.
