Oooooh. Well this just got a little juicier.
Kelly Rutherford‘s estranged husband, German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch, claims that he found out about his daughter Helena’s birth on the internet. Giersch says he had a verbal agreement with Rutherford that she would notify him by phone or text message of her labor, hospitalization, and the child’s birth – which he alleges never happened. And he’s pissed. He released the following statement to People:
“Media reports claiming that I neglected to attend my daughter’s birth are total lies and fabrication,” Giersch says in a statement. “I was never informed by Kelly about the birth of our daughter, nor was I invited to attend. In fact, I found out about it through Internet reports like everyone else. Although this sickens me, I am of course overjoyed that our baby was born healthy. I would’ve wanted nothing more than to hold our newborn daughter for a few moments, and I only seek to coparent both our children responsibly and with love.”
I thinking this divorce is about to get even uglier than it is already.
