Leighton Meester suing her mom over monthly payments



rsz_tbd-leightonmeester072611.jpgTo further founder your faith in humanity, Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester is suing her mother, because her mom allegedly was using money she sent to the family to care for her sick younger brother Lex to pay for cosmetic procedures. Yeah, we'd sue her, too.

"This whole thing's been really tough on Leighton," a source tells People about the suit, which accuses Constance Meester of using the $7,500 per month Leighton was sending for personal expenses. "Her only 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."

If you think that's bad, the suit says Constance threatened to sue the 25-year-old for $10 million if she didn't increase the payments to $10,000 per month, however that logic works. Of course, you can' be surprised, considering Constance was convicted of aiding drug smugglers bring weed into the U.S. from Jamaica in the 1980s, which is why Leighton was born in a Texas halfway house. Mother's Day cards are not a priority each May, is what we're saying.
