Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester fired her mom as manager, cutting her off financially after an incident involving an old friend and a restraining order.
You know how these things go.
The 24-year-old actress dumped Connie Meester after a nasty confrontation with Leighton's friend Laurel Wiig led to a restraining order against her.
Connie has an extensive criminal past that is well documented, giving birth to Leighton while she was doing time in prison for marijuana smuggling.
The recent incident - in which Connie allegedly threatened to "hunt down and kill" Laurel - has Leighton worried about her mom's involvement.
"Now that she's gotten into more trouble, [Leighton] made the painful decision to cut ties with Connie," said a source close to the actress.Added the source: "Hopefully, Connie will get whatever help she needs and she and Leighton can eventually sort out their relationship."
Leighton's latest movie, The Roommate, opened on top of the box office, and she's won raves for starring in Country Strong this year as well.
