Marshall Mathers, Lindsay Lohan, Aaron Carter — plenty of celebrities don’t get along famously with the women who bore them. Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester is the latest to have a public spat with her own mother, having recently engaged in an exchange of lawsuits with mom Constance, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Last week, the younger Meester filed a lawsuit alleging that her mother took money meant for her son (Leighton’s brother) and used it on plastic surgery for herself. Constance has now followed suit, claiming that she was due to receive $10,000 per month as a dependent adult and that her daughter sent payments late or not at all.
Leighton claims that she and her mother never had such a predetermined arrangement in place, and that she did send $7,500 her mother’s way every month. Still, that’s not enough for Constance, who “sacrificed her happiness” to pay a total of $230,000 for her daughter’s acting training since the TV star was a child.
