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.

Why is this a shocker??? Her mother has always been a criminal. She was in jail when Leighton was born for crips sake.

Leighton should known the mother could not be trusted and set up a third party to care for her brother.

Whoever said Leightn should have paid for plastic surgery for herelf is nuts. This girl is gorgeous! Why be mean for no reason?

It sounds like the girl was just trying to make everyone happy, and unfortunately, that will never happen. A young girl is going to assume her parent will do the right thing, or at least hope so. The little brother obviously needs to be in a home where he is safe. For $7500/month, I am sure she can find good people or a good facility to make sure that he is well-cared for.

Amazing....her mother is not the worst mother in the news...What is this world coming to?

Oral contract! Not worth the paper it's not written on.

Note to Leighton:

Did the fact that you were born in a penitentiary give you any kind of clue?

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.
-------------------------------------------------------------

You do realize that you are also guilty of insulting people (Leighton Meester and other posters) who don't know who've never done any harm to you, right?

It makes it truly ironic that you would call anyone insecure. You are a massive hypocrite.

Her mother sounds like a real piece of work. She's full of it on her "oral agreement". It's not worth the paper it's printed on. Don't guess she's her manager any more.

Lucky she turned out different from her mum!, the mother should be ashamed of herself!, what is her problem??, does she have addiction problems?, hope those extentions take out the little hair she has on her head. Leighton should get a nanny to look after the brother and leave the mother to live on her own, she shouldn't be allowed to live off her kids, i hope the brother is ok, all the best to Leighton she must be a very blessed person despite her mum.

Uhmm...do you like ANYBODY?

Seriously, because to me it sounds like you have a problem with EVERYBODY.

Do me a favor, just read up on the celebs you actually care about. Nobody wants to read your negative crap. Move on.

And for Leighton, she is beautiful, inside and out. Acting is a real career that takes hard work and dedication. Don't let this prick say that acting isn't a real career, because I bet he is NOT a famous actor.

And she is just awesome for supporting her brother like that(:

I don't know why people act so surprised that there are horrible parents out there in all stripes. Look at Lindsay Lohan's parents or Amy Winehouse's parents. My mother and I never really got along but I never touched drugs or fell in with the wrong crowd.

Just because you're a mother doesn't make you a good person. There are mostly mediocre and worse than average mothers out there. Even selfish and self-centered people can feed off their children.
