Kelly Rutherford Sued Over Spying Debts

She hired a private investigator to keep a watchful eye on her ex-husband Daniel Giersch, and now Kelly Rutherford is being sued for allegedly not paying up.

According to a report put out by TMZ on Monday (April 30), the "Gossip Girl" actress hired Private Eye Edward Banach to work for her for a couple months, racking up a bill for $86,249.85.

Legal documents show that Banach says Kelly only paid $28,214.35 of her total bill. Now, the P.I., who was sub-contracted through a now-non existent security company, is suing the business and the 43 year-old actress to get the remaining $58k.

During the nasty divorce that included restraining orders, Kelly claimed the pool and play areas at Giersch's home were not secure and caused a danger to the couple's 2-year-old son, Hermes. For this reason, Rutherford admitted she hired the private eye to prove her ex never took care of properly securing these areas.

At this time, there has been no response from Kelly's side on these allegations.
