PEOPLE reports that Gossip Girl actress (and aspiring singer) Leighton Meester has sued her mother Constance for spending money on herself instead of spending it on the medical care of her brother Lex. Meester, 25, had sent the money for the specific purpose of caring for Lex.
The suit claims that Constance Meester used the $7,500 a month for cosmetic procedures, among other personal expenses. Ouch! How heinous! Spending cash allotted for a sick relative for vanity purposes? The suit also claims that mom threatened to sue her famous daughter for $3 million if she didn't raise the monthly allowance to $10,000. That sounds like extortion to us.
A source told PEOPLE that Meester's sole "concern has always been taking care of her brother. Leighton's really close with her brother and her dad – her parents are divorced. Leighton's a sweet girl – she cares about work, friends and family."
Constance Meester has a history of legal trouble. In the 1980s, she was convicted of helping a drug ring smuggle marijuana from Jamaica to the US. She even gave birth to Leighton while in a Texas halfway house!
