Kelly Rutherford Custody Battle

I Need A Script ...

To Talk To My Ex

12/1/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kelly Rutherford's custody battle with her ex-husband is so hateful … they're now under a court order to speak politely to each other, and get this -- in certain situations they're legally required to follow a SCRIPT!

The custody orders -- obtained by TMZ -- spell out precisely what Rutherford and her ex, Daniel Giersch, can and can't say … and how to behave around their 2 young children.

The docs order them to "exchange polite and friendly greetings."  And Giersch, who's German, has to speak in English whenever they meet for the hand off.  -- so he can't trash her in a foreign language without her knowledge.

If a kid doesn't want to leave one parent ... there's a drill for that, too ... the adults must follow a script that's actually included in the court order:

"Have a great time with [other parent]. I'll talk to you tomorrow," and will say to the other parent, "[Name], please come and help me."

The script thing may sound crazy, but hey, Kelly IS an actress.

He is a prick keeping the kids away from their mother.

I'm of the few who feels really sorry for Kelly. She is afterall the mother, who carried the children in her body for 9 months. Children need their mothers more than their fathers since mother provide the real nuturing. The Judge on this case is one strange weirdo to allow the father to have them in France 50% of the time. Regardless of whether Kelly got her husband's entry to USA revoked, she as the mother should have custody in America. This is a very strange case, and shows why so many people shake their heads at pathetic judges.

How pathetic-you do it for your kids you selfish aholess.
If you want them to suffer from a low self esteem and have insecurity issues their whole life, keep up the fighting.

If KR's acting is as convincing in this as it was in GOSSIP GIRL, I expect she'll soon be in jail.
