Deadline.com reports that the increasingly troublesome Momsen (who recently flashed fans during a performance with her band, Pretty Reckless) "will begin an indefinite hiatus following next Monday's episode."
While reps for CW and a producer at Warner Bros. declined to confirm or deny the news, a source spills that Momsen (who plays Jenny, the younger sister to Penn Badgley's Dan Humphrey) won't be seen in at least four episodes, including the show's mid-season finale on Dec. 6.
In fact, the 17-year-old has only appeared in three episodes so far this season, and the reported decision to switch her from series regular to occasional character comes as no surprise. Her controversial behavior -- including joking about having sex with a priest and telling Revolver readers she watches pornography -- has landed her in the headlines recently. And, apparently, she's not behaving any better on set.
"She only does (the show) for the money," a GG source tells USMagazine.com. "She works hard on Gossip Girl but doesn't care about the plot or the other cast members. She treats it like a 9-5. No emotional investment."
And her attitude about the show left a sour taste in guest star Tim Gunn's mouth. The Project Runway star griped about the mascara-loving teen to E! in September. "What a diva! She was pathetic, she couldn't remember her lines, and she didn't even have that many," he said. "I thought to myself, 'Why are we all being held hostage by this brat?'"
Looks like the cast and crew may not be held hostage much longer!
