We know Leighton Meester is suing her mom. And getting sued by her mom. Now, new reports say she wants custody of her younger brother Lex as well.

Leighton regularly sent money to her mother, Constance Meester, who served as her daughter's manager before Leighton fired her earlier this year.

The actress, 25, says this money for her brother's health needs, and that her mother used the money to get cosmetic surgeries for herself instead.

It is not known how old Lex is, or what condition(s) he suffers from. But Constance just countersued Leighton, claiming she owes her even more ... and that the 25-year-old actress came at her wielding a bottle.

Now The Roommate star just wants to make sure Lex is alright.

"Leighton is disgusted by her mother and is determined to get her brother Lex out of that situation," an insider reveals. "She wants Lex to leave their mother's California home and come to live with her in New York."

There aren't a lot of XOXOs being exchanged between Leighton and Connie Meester. The Gossip Girl star and her mom are engaged in a war of words.

Words and dueling lawsuits.

Connie is firing back after Leighton sued her last week, claiming in a new countersuit that the actress threw her to the ground back in December.

Leighton is accused of "repeatedly hitting her with a bottle" in a blinding rage, allegedly so crazed she had to be pulled off her mom by her brother.

Connie Meester concedes that Leighton sends her $7,500 a month, but not, as Leighton says, out of the goodness of the Gossip Girl star's heart.

Leighton says she sends that amount every month to pay for her brother's serious medical expenses, and that her mom pilfers the cash for herself.

The elder Meester claims this is all part of a settlement for the money she helped make for her daughter, and she may use it however she desires.

Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester and her mother are at odds, to say the least, and the reason the star is suing her mom is not just some petty gripe.

Leighton alleges that Constance Meester has been using considerable sums money meant for her son's medical care on plastic surgery for herself.

According to the suit, Leighton sends $7,500 a month to her mother to care for her younger brother, Lex, who suffers from severe medical issues.

Constance, in turn, uses it for plastic surgery, Botox and hair extensions.

The suit also accuses Constance of threatening Leighton with a $3 million lawsuit unless she started sending $10,000 a month instead of $7,500.

The Roommate star wants a judge to declare that there was never an oral contract in place suggesting she agreed to do so (as her mom alleges).

Constance Meester famously gave birth to her famous daughter while in federal prison for her part in a ring that smuggled drugs from Jamaica.

Earlier this year, the 54-year-old had a restraining order filed against her by Laurel Wigg, whose son attended school with Meester's son.

According to Wigg's request, Meester allegedly promised to "hunt down and kill" Wigg and her son. Leighton then fired her as her manager.

On Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester and Blake Lively star as NYC elites whose lives are dissected and scrutinized by a blogger thirsting for scandal.

Turns out both actresses know a thing or two about that in real life, as well.

In 2009, a purported Leighton Meester sex tape leaked. It sure looked like her, though she sort of denied it and the full story never materialized.

Sounds a lot like the Blake Lively nude photos that appeared last week. Luckily, at last night's MTV Movie Awards, both lovely ladies were clothed.

Didn't see that coming, but it happened outside La Poubelle in Hollywood while they ate dinner on Sunday. Not only that, the actors weren't trying to hide.

"They were happily willing to talk to fans who approached them," an onlooker says of the duo, who dined for over two hours and stayed out past midnight.

On July 1, Katie Cassidy, Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester star in Monte Carlo, in which they play three young girls who embark on a dream trip to Paris.

A dream trip that turns into a nightmare. That is, until ...

When the trio decides to take a break from a lousy tour and sneak into the lobby of a 5-star hotel, one of the girls is mistaken for a famous British heiress.

Before they know it, the girls are living the A-list dream, donning haute couture, jet-setting and dodging celebrity gossip media with the best of them.

Watch the trailer for this fun-looking cheese-fest - in which Selena's new song "Who Says" just happens to be playing prominently - below!

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.

A Nasty Thrill Indeed

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.

What would Blair Waldorf say?

The mother of Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, who has led an interesting life (she gave birth to Leighton while in prison), is making headlines again.

This time, the ex-drug trafficker is accused of threatening the star's former friend Laurel Wiig. A restraining order against Meester's mom was issued.

Leighton's mother and manager, Constance, is said to have threatened to "f**k up" and "hunt down and kill" Wiig. It's very much unclear why.

"She is an addict and had made a threat to kill," Wiig described.

A judge ordered Constance to stay 100 yards away from Wiig.

Meester, who can currently be seen in The Roommate as well as Gossip Girl, said recently that she's dealt with turmoil in life by turning to music.

Hopefully, she won't have to deal with much more like this.
