    Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester Looking to End One Mother of a Problem

    Leighton Meester is looking to put an end to her mama drama.

    The Gossip Girl star has filed a petition with Los Angeles Superior Court asking a judge to throw out Constance Meester's $3 million breach of contract suit against her as a "matter of law" on the grounds that the latter's allegations are frivolous.

    Here's the gist:

    Per court docs filed last week and obtained by E! News, Leighton's attorneys contend that Constance is suing her daughter over "a non-existent ‘management agreement;" "an alleged ‘support agreement" and "an alleged settlement agreement."

    The very suggestion that the actress had an oral contract to pay her mother $10,000 a month for life is ridiculous, Team Leighton claims.

    And just because Leighton gave her mom money before, that doesn't mean she has to keep paying her, according to her lawyers.

    "None of these agreements are valid or enforceable as a matter of law," the filing states.

    The 25-year-old thesp sued her mom in July in order to have a judge declare that there never was any oral agreement between them and was promptly sued right back. In that lawsuit, she claims she voluntarily gave Constance $7,500 a month to help provide medical care for her younger brother, Lex, who underwent brain surgery last May, as well that Constance used the dough for, among other things, cosmetic procedures including "plastic surgery on her face and stomach, Botox injections for her face, fillers for her hands and hair extensions."

    Leighton's suit maintained that, not only has the Country Strong star endured a "difficult relationship" with her mother, but also that mama Meester is a freeloader who refuses to work, instead opting to live off the generosity of her daughter.

    Constance does have criminal history: She has done time in federal prison for her part in a drug smuggling ring (during which time she gave birth to Leighton).

    A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Oct. 5.  A lawyer for Constance as unavailable for comment.
