Leighton Meester's Career

Gossip girl actress Leighton Meesteris dealing with ‘personal issues’ after her mother Constance was slapped with a restraining order over death threat claims.

According to reports, Leighton’s mum threatened to hunt down and kill former friend Laurel Wigg and her young son. Court documents filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court state that Leighton’s mother - also her manager - ‘is a drug addict and made a threat to kill us.’ The reasons behind the dispute are not yet known but the two women both have children at the same school. This is not the first time that Constance has been in trouble with the law. Leighton, 24, was actually born while Constance was incarcerated on drug charges and was raised by her grandmother until her mother was released.

The news couldn’t have come at a worse time for the young actress. She has recently been championed for a role in the prequel to Sex and the City!
