According to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles
yesterday (25 July) Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester is accused of violently beating
her own mother. In a fight that took place last December, Constance Meester
claims that Leighton threw her to the floor and hit her with a bottle.

The suit comes less than a week after it
became public that Leighton had already taken legal action against Constance
for allegedly misusing money the star had given her. Leighton claims that her
mother spent $7500 (Dhs27,500) that was intended for the care of her little
brother, using it for cosmetic surgery instead.

Constance claims that she and Leighton have
a verbal contract that her daughter will give her a monthly allowance of $10,000
(Dhs36,700) for life. According to sources, Leighton has asked a judge to rule
that no such contract exists.

It's a sad turn of events after the way
Leighton spoke of her mother in a recent interview with Grazia, calling her ‘an
inspiration’. “My mother Connie inspires me. She's an
amazing woman,” she said.
