Kelly Rutherford, former Gossip Girl star, has filed for bankruptcy, TMZ reports. The actress's lengthy custody dispute with ex-husband Daniel Giersch seems to be the main cause of her financial trouble, as legal documents show that she spent almost $1.5 million on legal fees as the divorce/custody battle played out in court.
The star also owes $350,000 in income taxes for 2012, and has an American Express bill of $25,251. According to the she site, her debt totals $2,021,832, with her current monthly income being $1,279.33.
In the petition that she filed last month, the 44-year-old actress says that she's already borrowed thousands of dollars from friends and family.
Indeed, the custody battle over her and Giersch's children, 5-year-old Hermes and 3-year-old Helena, has been difficult for the star -- financially and emotionally.
