Gossip Girl Star Leighton Meester Born in Prison RumorsWas Gossip Girl star (aka Blair Waldorf) Leighton Meester really born in a federal prison? Rumor has it that Leighton was born while her mother was serving a prison sentence in Texas. Technically, she was born in a halfway house affiliated with the prison, but was taken away when her mother was ordered to return to her cell three months later, according to Star magazine.
The Gossip Girl star's mother was allegedly investigated for heading up a $250 million-a-year drug-smuggling operation. She and her "employees" supposedly brought in 13,000 pounds of marijuana from Jamaica, according to Star. As if that weren't enough, the tabloid goes on to claim that her aunt, father, and even grandfather all spent time in federal prisons.
What for? You guessed it--drug dealing. Considering the fact that you can't exactly make federal records go away, if this turns out to be true, Leighton's PR team is in for serious spinning.
