Leighton Meester Sues Mom -- You Ripped Me Off!

7/22/2011 5:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Gossip Girl" star  Leighton Meester is suing her mother, claiming her mom diverted money Leighton sent to her little brother and used it for plastic surgery, Botox and hair extensions.
 
Leighton Meester Sues Mom

According to the suit ... obtained by TMZ ... Leighton's mom refused to work, but Leighton felt badly for her younger brother Lex, who has severe medical issues.  So Leighton sent her mom $7,500 a month so she could provide for Lex.

But the suit claims the mother, Constance Meester, used the money for cosmetic procedures and other personal expenses.

According to the suit, Constance even tried to convince Leighton ... they had an oral contract requiring Leighton to pay her $10,000 a month for life.  Leighton says it's a total lie. 

Leighton claims her mom threatened to file a $3 million lawsuit against her unless Leighton started coughing up the dough.

Leighton wants the judge to declare there's no contract between her and her mom.

There used to be an expression people used sometimes when they were really hungry. It was: "I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse."

Looks like she did!

What a fat face on that gossip girl! Wow!

I heard that her mom was pretty crappy and the girl has had a hard life. I give her credit for working and trying to do something with her life even though she came out of a bad situation.

@Bruno:

IMHO, you're a sociopathic, moronic Pr*ck troll with nothing of any insight to say to anyone.

With you insulting other people you don't know who've never done any harm to you, it's obvious that you're an insecure, incompetent, know-nothing nattering nabob of inanity. Frack you very much.

She's not a coal miner. She's an actress. Granted, she works for a living, but it's hardly back-breaking work. Like most TV and film actors, she's paid ridiculous sums of money to play version of herself on the screen and read lines from a script and attempt to emote. She's no Katherine Hepburn, Judi Dench or Meryl Streep when it comes to acting expertise. And she looks like a common pig in that TMZ picture, but she sounds like a nice person trying to help her little brother. So good luck to her!

yeas her pr team has done a good job, because very few people know she was born in jail. Her mother was not a small time dealer...she was huge&did eleven years as a result.

It was really wrong of her very own mother to do that.

Some info of her mother taken from the mighty wiki. "At the time, her mother was serving a federal prison sentence for her involvement in a drug ring that smuggled marijuana from Jamaica to the United States. She was able to give birth to Leighton in a hospital and nurse her for three months in a halfway house, before returning to prison to complete her sentence."

Her bother had a brain tumor that Leighton was providing for with the 7.5K a month for. Guess her mother was using some or a lot towards her plastic surgery was a selfish bitch!!!

Bad Mom. Bad bad Mom. This is something the former child star, Paul Peterson constantly warns people about. Gary Coleman had the same issue. Jackie Cooper did too I think. This is not a new problem. But then, all family problems are old.

Never-the-less, Bad BAD Mom. Shame on you.

Isn't this the one that was born in prison because her mom was incarcerated when she was born? What did she expect? Once a criminal, always a criminal.
