Oh man. This is so sad.
Leighton Meester has had an ongoing battle with her mom, Constance Meester.
In fact, Leighton is even currently going through a stressful legal battle with her mother, whom she accuses of using the money to buy frivolous things such as cosmetic surgery, instead of spending the money on Leighton's younger brother, Lex.
So now, Constance is attacking Leighton, yet again, and blaming her for financially abandoning her and Lex. She says:
"My car was taken away. My house has gone into default, and we can’t afford food. I only have $26 left. If something doesn’t happen soon, we’ll be homeless by the holidays. I just got blood work done, and the doctors are pretty sure that I have lymphoma.
I knew that she was going to be a star and I devoted my life to making sure that happened. I never told Leighton this, but I worked as an exotic dancer to make ends meet.
The other night, I was looking at homeless shelters, and Lex showed me photos he’d found of a million dollar house she bought in LA and said, 'Mom, how can she do this to us?'"
The sad thing is that her mother has been known to have a past with drug use and has even been incarcerated on drug-related charges.
While Leighton did end their informal business relationship back in 2008, she still sent over $7,500 every month to help both her mother and her brother out.
It's sad that money has come between Leighton and her mother. It sounds like she's been willing to financially support her as long as she uses the money wisely. Not sure if we entirely trust Leighton's mom, especially with her shady past.
So, so sad. We hope they can resolve their issues one day.
