Leighton Meester Still Seeks Declaratory Relief After Mother Withdraws Lawsuit


Leighton Meester


The 'Gossip Girl' actress has reportedly been awarded a default judgment against her mother on December 7 after a judge accepted Constance's decision to drop her $3 million lawsuit.

The legal dispute between Leighton Meester and her mother appears to have ended with the withdrawal of Constance's countersuit, but the "Gossip Girl" star is still taking some precaution. The TV star now seeks a judgment against her mother that states she does not owe her mother parental support.

Revealing the move was Leighton' attorney James Spertus. After words spread that a judge has accepted Constance's decision to drop her $3 million lawsuit against the 25-year-old beauty, the lawyer told E! News, "Leighton is still seeking declaratory relief from the court, which we hope to have wrapped up in the very near future."

The legal battle between Leighton and Constance began in July when the "Monte Carlo" actress sued her mother for misusing the $7,500 she sent each month for younger brother Lex's medical expenses. A few days later, Constance hit back with a countersuit in which she claimed that she "sacrificed her happiness" to help her daughter pursue acting.

In November, Constance told the court through her lawyers she decided not to defend herself against Leighton's claims anymore. She also submitted a motion to withdraw her Answer as well as her claims that the Chiles Stanton of "Country Strong" must pay her $10,000 every month.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a judge made an order striking Constance's answer to the lawsuit on Wednesday, December 7. It gave Leighton, who sought a declaration there was no contractual relationship between the parties in her lawsuit, the right to obtain a default judgement against her mother.
