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.

It doesn't matter whether the ruling is fair or not. She's not banned from France. She chooses not to live near her children.

Wouldn't be surprised one bit if she leaked it and is now trying to blame it on her husband to try and win back custody. Some women are scandalous like that.

She is a bitch! Only she would be pissed off by a sweet sign from her kids. Yea, the kids looking happy and well cared for was all for the media. Whatever, she is using her kids to keep her in the press. She should lose all custody. Women are very calculating, cheap and dishonest most of the time, just like Kelly. Look at Chad Johnson and Chris Humphreys, they are bigger victums than Kelly any day I'd the week.

Let's see, Kelly is smiling right into the camera but is mad about the pictures. Hmmmm! She is a celebrity but only her hated ex would take pix of her and kids at airport. Hmmmmm! This woman is so nuts. The more she racks up publicity bitching about the ex the more pix. Who would ever want this nutcase again?

You stupid Americans. As a naturalized us citizen let me tell you this Visa problem can be worked out. The children will never come home to the us if they are educated in France and live with him...they won't want to and will become uncomfortable moving back as they will have become accustomed to France..which is a good thing in many ways but so awful for the family. He is NOT holding her purse idiots..he is next to the LlBean tote bag that probably has kid stuff in it for them to keep in France.
This judge is an cruel and evil woman...those kids can be flown to see the father on every holiday or meet in Canada for a holiday...or in St Barths so he can feel French for a week or so...I had my father in another country and there were no issues for him to visit...none of my other foreign friend divorced parents have issues getting into the USA to visit. This guy was sketchy from the start and mark my words he will be dragging those kids around in front of new paramours. Is this not an unprecendented move by an American judge?

So often the parents act like kids more than the kids themselves, think about the kids...they are the ones who need nurturing and solid family ties, even if the parents are not together. I was raised in a home where my parents were divorced but I was relieved, the fighting was so stressful.
