Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester born behind bars
It's nature vs. nuture (as far as Star is concerned) for Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester. The glossy has uncovered the shocking(!) fact that the erstwhile Blair Waldorf wasn't actually born in Marco Island, as her bio states, but was in truth birthed while her mom was serving time in a federal prison in Texas. Leighton better give up those big city dreams right now.
The mag says mama Meester was following in the footsteps of a long family line of jailbirds, including Leighton's father, grandfather and aunt, who all served for dealing drugs. Tragic. And while Leighton's mom was released to a halfway house for the actual birth, she had to go back to prison when the babe was a mere 3 months old.
The family did move to Marco Island in the late 1980s, but the only thing that proves to us is that you really shouldn't move to Collier County. Or lie on your resume, because Star will one day find you out.
