Former “Gossip Girl” star Kelly Rutherford’s bitter custody fight has made it a rough year for the actress, and she has now filed for bankruptcy.

Rutherford filed for bankruptcy stating that she has assets totaling $23,937 but debts totaling $2,021,832, according to TMZ.

In addition, since the end of “Gossip Girl,” her income has dropped from $486,000 from the final season of the show, to $1,279.33 a month. The bills stem from her divorce/custody battle with ex-husband Daniel Giersch which has tallied a grand total of $1.5 million.

In addition, according to the report, she is on the hook for more than $350,000 in unpaid taxes last year and owes $25,251 for American Express charges.

The bankruptcy petition was filed last month.
