Last week, Mischa Barton was rushed to a hospital following what sources described as an emotional breakdown.
Sadly, fans of the actress are accustomed to this sort of news, as Barton has been hospitalized in connection with psychiatric episodes several times in recent years.
This time, however, the 31-year-old claims that her medical issue had nothing to do with her long history of addiction and mental health issues.
Barton says she was drugged while celebrating her birthday with friends, and that she nearly lost her life as a result of ingesting the so-called "date rape drug," GHB.
“On the evening of the 25th, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. While having drinks, I realized that something was not right as my behavior was becoming erratic and continued to intensify over the next several hours,” Barton said in the statement issued last week.
“I voluntarily went to get professional help, and I was informed by their staff that I had been given GHB. After an overnight stay, I am home and doing well,” the statement continued.
Now, video of the incident has emerged, and it shows Barton behaving in an erratic and frightening fashion.
The footage - in which Barton is seen ranting about her mother being a witch before falling down - was reportedly shot during a party at the actress' home.
Attendees say Barton's strange behavior came on suddenly, which would jibe with her explanation that it was caused by a spiked drink.
