Gossip Girl stars band together to help bring Kelly Rutherford's kids home

Kim Kardashian jumped on board, too.

Kelly Rutherford kids

Kelly Rutherford, aka Lily van der Woodsen, has been involved in a six-year international custody battle after a judge ordered her two children, Helena, 5, and Hermes, 8, to live in France with her ex-husband, who is German. And yes, that means they were fighting the decision before their daughter was even born.

As Buzzfeed points out, over the past few months the Gossip Girl star has used her profile to urge friends and fans to sign a petition asking The White House to help her bring her children home to the U.S.

"The children’s appointed counsel said they should remain in the U.S., but the judge sent the children to France," the petition reads. "Solely because the father claimed he could not return to the U.S., even though NO evidence has been produced from any American official stating that the father was EVER denied entry into the U.S., and the father refused to request a visa." At the time of writing this article there are 104,925 signatures on the petition. Some of the names include Kelly’s Gossip Girl co-stars Rufus Humphrey (AKA Matthew Settle) and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick):

Other famous faces include Kim Kardashian West, who shared her thoughts with her 31.7million Twitter followers:

Once Gossip Girl co-stars, forever friends.
