Leighton Meester Countersued by Mother ANGELES) -- Leighton Meester's mother wasted no time in responding to a lawsuit filed against her by the Gossip Girl star last week. Meester claims in her suit that her mom, Constance Meester, spent some of the $7,500 per month the actress says she sent for her ailing younger brother on cosmetic procedures.

According to E! Online, Constance has filed a countersuit, insisting that she had an agreement with her daughter to receive $10,000 per month -- a contention that Leighton denied in her complaint. Constance further claims that she spent over $230,000 and "sacrificed her happiness" by moving around the country to help launch Leighton's career. reports that Constance says the money sent by Leighton was not intended for her brother, but was instead a type of settlement.

The allegations don't end there. According to E! Online, Constance's lawsuit claims Leighton contacted social services and falsely accused Constance of abusing a wound on her son's head. TMZ also says that Constance alleges Leighton attacked her with a bottle last December.

Leighton's lawsuit asks a judge to rule that she did not have a $10,000 per-month deal with her mother.
