Following the announcement that Leighton Meester is suing her mother, Constance Meester, for using money intended for Leighton’s little brother, Lex, on cosmetic surgery and hair extensions for herself, Constance has come back with a counterclaim and is accusing Leighton of “repeatedly hitting her with a bottle,” back in December. As if this story wasn’t sad enough that a daughter had to sue her mother in the first place!
Constance, who has been on the outs with Leighton for a while now, had been receiving $7,500 a month from Leighton to provide for her son since she had been out of work, but is also claiming that she had a verbal contract with her daughter that Leighton was to send her $10,000 a month and that if she does not receive the money, she will file a $3 million law suit.
You would think it would end there, but it doesn’t! Constance goes on to claim that the $7,500 Leighton had been sending was not out of kindness, but rather it was meant to make up for all the money Constance had spent on her daughter over the years.
At this point, it doesn’t seem to matter who started fighting with who. We just hope that the two are able to settle this without getting in any deeper, and can patch thing up between themselves before it’s too late!
The Red Hot Chili Peppers apparently have a hot temper.
In a suit filed today, the Chili Peppers accused Showtime of violating federal trademark laws with their new David Duchovny show, “Californication,” which has the same name as the famous Red Hot Chili Peppers album.
Anthony Keidis, the lead singer, said that “‘Californication’ is the signature CD, video and song of the band’s career. For some TV show to come along and steal our identity is not right.”
The word has been around since 1972, originally meaning the “haphazard, mindless development that has already gobbled up most of Southern California” and used in Time magazine.
The band formed in Los Angeles in 1983, and released the “Californication” album in 1999.
