'Gossip Girl' star Leighton Meester has won the long-suffering legal battle against her mother. According to TMZ.com, judge Gregory Alacron ruled in Leighton's favour in the case against Constance Meester who has misused money sent home by the actress.

Leighton Meester sued her mother last year claiming that she was misusing the money sent by the 'Gossip Girl' actress to take care of 17-year old brother Lex, who underwent brain surgery. According to reports, Constance Meester used the funds to pay for plastic surgery. Leighton's mother said that she had an oral agreement with her daughter to pay her $10,000 each month for the 'sacrifices' she made in order to give the actress a chance to pursue her dream. As a result, she counter-sued Leighton for $3 million, but dropped the lawsuit in December.

Although Leighton Meester's lawsuit was not intended to bring her any financial retribution, it is now official: the actress has no obligation to pay her mother Constance any amount of money.

According to a close source, 'Leighton is disgusted with her mother and is determined to get her brother Lex out of that situation. She wants Lex to leave their mom's California home and come to live with her in New York.' The 26-year old actress is currently seeking custody of her litte brother.

With the rulling going in her favor, Meester has now found the peace she needs to focus on her career. As she is preparing to move on from the hit TV series 'Gossip Girl', Leighton has big plans for her musical career and wants to release an album later this year. Also, the 26-year old beauty is currently starring in 'That's My Boy', alongside Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg, which hit the theatres on June 15.
