Leighton Meester

Crushes Mom in Court

Over Plastic Surgery Money

EXCLUSIVE

Leighton Meester
just won her legal war against her mom -- after the "Gossip Girl" star sued her last year ... claiming the woman diverted money Leighton had sent to her little brother  ...  and she spent it on things like plastic surgery, Botox, and hair extensions.

TMZ broke the story -- Leighton filed the lawsuit claiming her little brother has serious medical problems ... so she sent home $7,500 a month to help cover his expenses.

Leighton's mom, Constance Meester, tried convincing the judge Leighton had promised to take care of her and that's why she spent the cash.  But the judge pooh-poohed mom's claims, ruling there was no such agreement.

Leighton actually didn't sue to recover any money from her mom -- she just wanted the judge to make her mother go away.

Mission accomplished.

Yeah - THE MONEY was sent to 'take care' of her brother - NOT pay for your plastic surgery. What kind of sick parent are you? Geez.

Flashback to the hospital scene in Million Dollar Baby when Hilary Swank aka Maggie had her mom shoving that pen in her mouth to sign over the money.

I've followed this story for awhile. It's sad that her own mother used her that way. Hopefully, she can/will still care for her brother. Best of luck Leighton, you're a beautiful girl.

Good for Leighton! Maybe she can get custody of her brother or possibly move him closer to her.

I hope she's lost all rights to her son while she's at it. What kind of sick, twisted individual uses money for a sick child for her own vanity. She should go to jail for pulling this stunt.

What kind of person not only scams their daughter out of her money to take care of their own self, but also scams their sick son out of money for his care..
