By Alexis TereszcukRadar Entertainment Editor

Kelly Rutherford is shocked by the ruling that her young children must live in France with their father and she made a tearful appearance on The View to talk about her bitter custody battle Thursday, and revealed the heartbreaking news that she believes her son has been “brainwashed.”

The Gossip Girl beauty told Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd that she saw her children just 10 days ago, and was weeping when recalling what they said to her.

“My little girl said ‘I want to come home, mama. I want to come back to New York,’” she described about Helena, 3, who is now in the custody of her ex-husband Daniel Giersch.

Wiping away tears with a tissue that Whoopi Goldberg brought her, Kelly dropped the bombshell that she believes her son, Hermes, 5, is being brainwashed.

“My son, who’s kind of been brainwashed, said where he is is so much better, but he always says ‘Mama, I love you so much, you’re in my heart.’”

A Los Angeles judge ruled that the children can stay in France with their father and she must visit them there.

“I don’t think he would intentionally harm the children,” Kelly said. “But I do think that the children are at risk because I was the primary care giver and now I’m the visitor. There are a lot of things being said to them every day that aren’t things that kids need to hear.”

Kelly said her son’s birthday is in October and she is hopefully planning to be with him on his special day.
