Leighton Meester

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester is in a nasty legal battle with her mom. And the ugly details are all coming out in court documents.
In a lawsuit filed last week, Leighton, 25, says her mother, Constance Meester, is using the $7,500 the actress sends home monthly for cosmetic procedures instead of health care for her youngest brother Alexander, who has medical issues.
According to the documents, Leighton says her mom refuses to work and is using the money for Botox, plastic surgery and hair extensions.
In response on Monday, Constance Meester filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court claiming that Leighton promised her a one-time payment of $30,000, and then $10,000 a month, and hasn't paid. As a result, there's not sufficient funds for Alexander, who recently required brain surgery. Constance says she is owed the money for all she has "sacrificed" in building Leighton's career over the last decade.
She also says that "at 2:00 a.m. on December 11, 2010, Leighton intentionally assaulted Constance by throwing her to the ground and repeatedly hitting her with a bottle. Leighton had to be pulled off of Constance by her brother Alexander."
