"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.

It would be nice if they could use this to justify taking her brother away from her mom.

Poor leighton! I know that if I sent my little brother money for his health and my mother squandered it away I'd sue too. Poor girl, poor brother, this is such an example of children turning out better than their parents.

This is the ugly side of fame and fortune.

If you can't trust family who can you trust?

Hopefully this will blow over and they can repair their relationship.

Tme to disown mamma! Set up a trust for your brother and his care, but consider yourselves orphans. People like her never change, don't be fooled into giving her a second chance to screw you over.

Poor Leighton but she actually turned out really well considering her upbringing. I have never heard of her doing anything crazy like the Lindsay's of the world. So Leighton if you can take custody of your brother he clearly needs you and get your mother out of your life because she doesn't deserve either you or your brother. And I think that person insulting Leighton on this board is her mother lol who's mad she's getting sued.
