Mischa Barton Sued By Landlord For Unpaid Rent

by at . Comments

Mischa Barton has really fallen on hard times these days. Pretty soon, that hooker outfit she donned for Law & Order: SVU may be her actual working attire.

Okay, we're exaggerating a little there. But a landlord really is saying the star is refusing to pay rent on her $7,000-a-month apartment in New York City.

Disoriented

Landlord M.R.A. Realties Inc. says in a lawsuit that Barton rebuffed efforts to collect the last three months' worth of rent in her Tribeca neighborhood pad.

The skinny actress' representatives had no immediate response. The landlord wants Barton to pay rent as well as legal fees incurred during the proceedings.

The 23-year-old Barton also lives in Los Angeles. The lawsuit filed Thursday says that her one-year lease on the Manhattan apartment began in September 2009.

At the time, she was in The Beautiful Life, a CW series about the New York modeling world. The show was canceled in September after airing just two episodes.

Barton rose to fame playing Marissa Cooper on Fox's teen drama The OC. She's been looking extremely healthy and lucid ever since. Actually, quite the opposite.

That was a low point for me. I never, ever would have thought I would be arrested. I was disappointed because it associated me with a group of girls that I would rather not be associated with.
