Leighton Meester of “Gossip Girl,” who’s suing her mother for misusing money she gave her, is now being countersued by her mum.

Meester claims in her suit that she funneled her mother thousands a month to be used for care of Meester’s sick brother — but that her mum used it on plastic surgery.

Now Meester’s mother has filed a countersuit claiming that her daughter beat her severely during an altercation.

Meester’s far from the only star who’s had an ugly family fight in the public eye.
