Transcript for Kelly Rutherford Breaks Down in Tears on 'The View'
Let's just right now the children are still. In France -- in -- them. I I love song about a week -- and the judge when you I mean your -- and a woman has been having a judge. She gets it rolling I -- besides -- -- -- I don't know policy could describe what you Wear. -- -- I mean they're supposed to start school the next day originates took them out of school a month early to go to France. With no return date we had to go and an -- that there was a return date from summer. -- I can basically go visit. And then that on the date they're supposed to come home when it was she extended until the day -- -- -- Before school. Secret Service around here yeah. I. Got. So aghast that then she made the the other releases will -- -- foreign that this -- -- And then the day before school so the schools were already they would -- I mean. It's just been. -- -- so the judge she makes this rolling again I guess I'm looking to you for some sort of justification or anyone with that what we just heard in terms of Renton may. Reformers -- I just don't understand how custody is awarded. To add it to someone with it was an exile -- in February revoked and in a country that he's not even doesn't even live and. Right he's -- German citizen. And the kids were. Effectively deported frivolous but here's -- the theory with the judge's ruling -- the judge said she's looking at what is in the best interest of the children. And the judge determined that the amount of travel. Ineffective because Kelly was bringing the kids to Bermuda and Canada and other places where he could go to full time to see that -- weekends a month -- that was too much travel for the kids in and that the judge would rather the kids just be in France and that Kelly. Go to France to visit the -- some people are going to be saying come -- Kelly must have been something wrong there's no way and that's what I thought when I first saw this case -- and there's got to be something else here. The only things that the judge cited. For anything she did wrong were when she feared that he might abduct the kids to Europe. The judge accused are in effect of not giving him enough facts ask the judge also had some questions about Kelly's work schedule etc. Apart from that no allegations of bad parenting. Judge again and again said -- -- great parent he's a great parent when you take a step back and you look at -- -- So you've got American citizen kids American mom kids grew up here. He gets kicked out of the country. For violating his decent. That's why they -- they refused to tell me why accident and the judge didn't wants to evaluate the reasoning. Judge basically say -- I -- he's not answering questions about what he does for a -- not answering questions about -- homes etc. you can understand that I can get him in legal trouble. -- -- What what do you -- you -- that's -- -- every parent have right now I mean -- -- protecting him and that a -- protecting what's best -- -- show and wanted us in the past there was -- what -- there represented the children so in these kinds of proceedings of a lawyer for each each parent I think of the lawyer represented -- interest from the lawyer who represented the -- interest said. Kids ought to be -- New York. Com so it's really I was I was stunned. When I read through because I read through all of the arguments -- -- the judge's ruling and I kept looking for that one nugget which would -- -- -- This is it Kelly was really sort of mistreating or did some nothing.
