Leighton Meester must harbor a secret desire to play out the lead role in some cheesy, generic Lifetime movie, because, as well as suing her ex-convict mother Constance, she’s now seeking custody of her younger brother.
The actress had been sending $7,500 each month to her mother to help cover medical expenses for her little bro, Alexander–who, among other ailments, recently had brain surgery–but instead her mother allegedly spent the money on her own cosmetic procedures.
“Leighton is disgusted by her mother and is determined to get her brother Lex out of that situation. She wants Lex to leave their mom’s California home and come to live with her in New York.”
This seems like a tall order for a 25-year-old who’s always busy b!tching it out as Blair on Gossip Girl, but maybe she can pull a Tim Gunn and make it work. Hire a nanny, buy a tracking device…and if he gets a little fussy, just bring him along! Nobody can be too upset while basking in the presence of Blake Lively and Chace Crawford. Their collective shininess is, like, the greatest tranquilizer known to teenage kind. Just smile and look at the pretty people!
