Originally posted 07/25/2011 11:30AM

Leighton Meester has sued her mother Constance for spending money on herself – money that the actress had been sending for the care of her brother Alexander, who has medical issues.

Constance Meester used the $7,500 a month for cosmetic procedures, among other personal expenses, the suit alleges.

"This whole thing's been really tough on Leighton," a source tells PEOPLE. "Her only concern has always been taking care of her brother. Leighton's really close with her brother and her dad – her parents are divorced. Leighton's a sweet girl – she cares about work, friends and family."

Romance hasn't come easy for Leighton Meester over the years – and that's okay with her.

Leighton Meester may not have the relationship her Gossip Girl alter ego enjoys with her onscreen love, Chuck, but she's okay with that.

"It's wonderful to be in love," the actress, 24, tells the January issue of Allure. "And it's definitely wonderful to cuddle and have sex and get to experience life with somebody. But it's okay if you don't find him and you're 24. You can find it someday."

Meester says she understands the kind of love her character, Blair Waldorf, shares with Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) on the show.

Happy birthday, Blair Waldorf!

The Upper East Side's reigning queen bee is celebrating her big day in style – literally.

On Monday's episode of Gossip Girl (9 p.m. ET), Blair (Leighton Meester) will get a very fashionable sweet treat in the form of shoe-shaped cookies by New York City bakery Eleni's.

"All of the shoes were designed based upon actual shoes in Blair Waldorf's shoe collection," Margo Spiritus of Eleni's tells PEOPLE. "The costume department [at Gossip Girl] sent us photos of all nine of the shoes. They are all designer shoes. We recreated them as cookies."

Perhaps the baked goods will sweeten the deal, because Blair is set to get an unsavory surprise when an unexpected guest shows up at her celebration.

Want to make the cookies yourself? Here's the recipe:
