After a drawn-out legal battle following Kelly Rutherford’s divorce, TMZ reports that a judge ruled in favor of her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, for their two children — ages 3 and 5 — to live with him. The problem? Daniel lives in France.

However, the court did specify that Kelly has a right to 50% of the children’s time, with the judge feeling that Kelly's schedule was flexible enough to accommodate the international travel. Kelly doesn’t agree. According to TMZ’s sources, Kelly feels the travel and time commitments would make spending quality time with her kids extremely difficult, and that she’s “devastated” by the court’s decision.

Daniel cannot return to the U.S. due to a revoked visa, nevertheless Kelly intends on appealing the decision.
