Leighton Meester Keeps Her Head Up Amid Mom’s Legal Troubles

Leighton Meester powered through Gossip Girl filming on Friday despite her mother’s legal woes back in California. Constance Meester was handed a restraining order after making death threats to a California woman and her son, while allegedly under the influence of drugs.

Constance allegedly threatened to “hunt down and kill” the mother and son (the two women’s children attend school together). The restraining order, effective until February 10 of next year, states that Constance must stay 100 yards from the woman.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time Leighton’s mom has been on the wrong side of the law. Leighton was born in jail while her mother was serving a sentence for drug trafficking. The Roommate star has yet to comment. Keep your head up girl!
