Leighton Meester Wins Court Battle Against Her Mom
Actress Leighton Meester has won a court battle against her mother after the Gossip Girl star's mom alleged her daughter had promised to pay her $10,000 every month for life.
The TV star filed suit against her mom Constance last year, accusing her of misusing the monthly allowance intended for her little brother Lex, who suffers from severe medical issues, on cosmetic surgery, Botox injections and hair extensions for herself.
Meester further blasted Constance for trying to wring more money out of her by claiming they had an oral contract in place, which required the actress provide financial support for life.
The 26 year old asked a judge to declare that no such agreement exists, and on Wednesday, she was granted her request, according to TMZ.com.
Meester did not seek to recover any of the money she has already given her mother.
