18 Celebrities Who Have Difficult Relationships With Their Parents
Everyone knows Leighton Meester for playing Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, but people might not know she is one of the celebrities who is estranged from their parents. Leighton was actually born while her mom Constance Meester was in prison on a sentence for drug trafficking. (Her dad was in jail for involvement with the same drug ring.) When they got out of jail, they separated when Leighton was young. Trouble came when the actress’s career took off. In 2011, Leighton and her mama both sued each other over money for Leighton’s young bro, Alexander Meester. The money was given to Constance by Leighton to be used for his medical costs but Leighton alleged it was spent by her mom on herself on things like cosmetic procedures. Things went back and forth. Leighton pretty much won and the judge rejected some of Constance’s claims and a counter-suit attempt.
