Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester isn't letting family matters get her down!
The actress has purchased a $1,457,500 home in Encino, California -- some good news considering she's been dealing with mama drama all summer!
On Tuesday, Leighton, 25, filed a petition in LA's Superior Court to get a $3 million lawsuit from her mom, Constance Meester, thrown out. Constance is suing Leighton over a "management agreement," saying Leighton agreed to pay her $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. Leighton says the agreement never existed.
Luckily, Leighton now has this home to relax in. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is 2,847 square feet and features walk-in closets, a steam shower, a fireplace, a built-in barbecue, a pool, a guest suite and a breakfast bar.

In July, Leighton sued Constance, alleging that Constance had taken money Leighton provided for the care of her younger brother (who had brain surgery in May) and used it for plastic surgery instead.
Constance did time in federal prison for being part of a drug-smuggling ring. Leighton was born in prison. A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 5.
Now that Leighton is moving from TV (Gossip Girl films in New York) to movies (like Country Strong), she wants to put down roots in LA! See all the pics of Leighton's new pad in our gallery below!
