Leighton Meester and Mother Trade Allegations, Lawsuits
Safe to say aren't a lot of XOXOs exchanged between Leighton and Connie Meester.
The Gossip Girl star and her mom are engaged in a war of words and lawsuits. Leighton sued her mom last week, claiming Connie uses the $7,500 a month Leighton sends to pay for her brother's medical bills on plastic surgery and Botox for herself.
Pretty terrible if true, but her mom insists it isn't.
A new countersuit, Connie alleges that the 24-year-old threw her to the ground in December and accuses Leighton of "repeatedly hitting her with a bottle."
According to Connie, who Leighton fired as her manager earlier this year, the star was in such in a blinding rage, little brother Lex had to restrain her.
Connie Meester concedes that Leighton sends her $7,500 a month, but not, as Leighton says, out of the goodness of the Gossip Girl actress' heart.
Leighton insists she sends that amount every month to pay for her brother's serious medical issues, and that her mom pilfers the cash for herself.
For what it's worth, Connie's credibility is highly suspect, considering her past prison term and more recent death threat against Leighton's friend.
Needless to say, we stand by Leighton 100 percent and hope this is resolved quickly and amicably for everyone's sake, before it gets even uglier.
