Leighton Meester is trying to keep busy while her mom goes batshit crazy. From X17 Online:
Leighton Meester, whose film The Roomate took the number one spot at the box office in its opening weekend, threw herself into work on the set of her CW show Gossip Girl this week as news that her troubled mother, Constance Meester, was hit with a restraining order for making death threats.
Court documents reveal that Leighton’s mom threatened to “hunt down and kill” a former friend and her son on January 21st.
The pal slapped Constance with a temporary restraining order and claimed that Constance “is a drug addict and made a threat to kill us.” A judge has ordered Meester to stay 100 feet away from the mother and son.
It’s unclear what prompted the outburst, but Constance and the woman in question both have children who attend the same school.
Constance Meester has a history of trouble with the law. In 1985 she was convicted of drug trafficking and spent 10 years behind bars, which is where Leighton was born. Leighton was raised by her grandparents until Constance’s release in 1995.
This is awesome because prison babies tend to have low self esteem and put out and because all women eventually turn into their mothers. Considering she wants to quit Gossip Girl when her contract expires, it’s only a matter of time before she realizes that no one wants to hear her sing and she starts guesting in the Bang Bus for rock.
