Is this shizz for real? *jawdrops*
"Leighton was born in jail, according to scandalous new reports. The actress' mother was serving a federal prison sentence in Texas when she gave birth, and although baby Leighton was born in a halfway house, her mom returned to prison after her daughter turned three months.
According to America's Star magazine, Meester was raised by a relative while her mother completed time for her role in an illegal drug enterprise. The publication also claims Meester's grandfather, father and aunt were jailed for drug dealing.
Meester's publicist was unavailable for comment when WENN went to press."
Info on the Federal Bureau of Prison’s website has surfaced that confirms Constance Haas Meester was in jail during the birth of Leighton Meester. Her birth date is listed as April 9, 1986 and Constance release dates wasn’t until November 20th of 1986.
"Constance was not sitting in a cell biting on a shoe and popping out Leighton. She actually gave birth in a half way house. She was in the clink for trafficking marijuana from Jamaica into the United States. Mother and baby Leighton stayed in the half way house together for 3 months before Constance returned to her cell."
From prison baby to hot,young Hollywood's 'IT' actress. This just goes to show that no matter where you're born or how lame your parents are, you still can make yourself someone. Take it from Leighton, she made growing up look damn fabulous! She sure has come a long way!
Love ya, Leighton! <3
