Kelly Rutherford has lost residential custody of her two young children, as a judge has ruled that her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, can keep their kids in France, where he currently resides.
The Gossip Girl actress was fighting to bring her children, age 3 and 5, back to the United States. Her former spouse can't come back to the country due to a revoked visa.
The judge ruled Rutherford has a "flexible schedule" and can go back and forth to France to spend time with her kids, according to TMZ. The court gave Rutherford the right to visit with the children 50% of the time, but sources tell the website that she believes it's "virtually impossible for her to spend meaningful time with the kids, given the enormous travel commitments that would be involved."
Rutherford plans to appeal the ruling.
