Start spreading the news!!!!
This is really happening!!!
The scandals of Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester aren't relegated to just the TV show!
We told you before about Leighton's ex-convict mother and family of drug dealers.
Well, it seems like her brother is no angel as well!
Leighton's older brother, Douglas, was involved in a high profile sexual assault case while he was a sophomore in the Air Force.
He was accused of raping and sodomizing (yikes!) a female, but their extreme intoxication at the time muddied the circumstances, with the victim even saying that she "knew for a fact that he probably thought what we were doing was consensual."
The rape charge was dropped in exchange for a guilty plea to "conduct unbecoming of an officer, dereliction of duty, and committing an indecent act." He was fined $2000 and received a written reprimand.
The Meesters all seem like a bunch of fuck-ups!
