Leighton Meester

Crushes Mom in Court

Over Plastic Surgery Money

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.

In the future, Leighton will likely have the egg donor just send her the bill. If it's for the brother, pay it. If it's for the egg donor, TELL her she paid it, but do nothing...

Leighton is an amazing person & having her own mother trying to take advantage of that is sad, but she is a strong girl so she'll be fine!!

Good! I get so fed-up with these parents thinking that just because their kids become wealthy, that they are entitled to a piece of the pie. She didn't just screw over Leighton, she screwed over her son too who needed that money for health reasons. If you want plastic surgery B-TCH, get up off your ass and work for it.Or at least get a sugar daddy to pay for it, that's better than stealing from your own kids. You're a sorry excuse for a mother.

So, did her brother receive any of the treatment he needed?

Good going, Leighton. I don't mean this sarcastically. You have taken the high road in dealing with a gold digger.

I laugh at Constance's defense. Taking care of you does not mean paying for luxurious and leisure items. Taking care of you implies helping pay for necessities. Apparently, you and octomom go to the same school of necessity.

No words for parents who scam their kids AND take money intended for medical treatment of one of their children.

Thank God I believe in karma. Hear it comes 10x. Get ready Constance.

Her mother is one vile human being, and doesn't deserve to be called a 'mother'.
