Star magazine says today that "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester was born in jail as her mother was serving time in a federal prison for drug running. And I think I speak for everyone when say, fucking … awesome.
In the Sept. 15 issue of Star, on sale Wednesday, we reveal that Leighton Meester, who plays the privileged Blair Waldorf in the hot TV series, was born while her mother was serving a federal prison sentence in Texas. The mom was allowed to stay in a halfway house for the birth, but had to return to prison on the day Leighton turned three months. The future star was raised by a relative while mom served out her sentence for her role in a major drug-running ring.None of those details appear in the actress' bio, which falsely lists the young star as being born in Marco Island, Fla., where her parents moved in the late '80s.And Leighton's mom isn't the only member of her family with a record — her father, grandfather and aunt all did hard time in federal prisons for drug dealing!
I think the important thing is to judge Leighton by her family and where she was born. She was born in jail, therefore, yes, she is a bad person. Similarly, I have a kind and enchanting personality. Where was I born? That’s right. Gumdrop Island.
