This family drama sounds SO FUN. And by fun, I mean like a living nightmare.
Mischa Barton is suing her own mother/manager for taking a large chunk of her salary on The Hoarder, a new film she’s acting in…and for kicking her out of her own home. According to the filed lawsuit against momager Nuala Barton, the 29-year-old is claiming her mother is a “Greedy stage mother posing as a talent manager.”
The document also says Nuala lied to Mischa about her income for her work on the new indie flick; when the actress found out what she was actually making from the production company on the set (which was, uh, a lot more than she thought) and naturally, she was pretty pissed. In the lawsuit, Nuala took the difference and a 10% management fee, but no specific numbers were revealed in the legal docs.
In ADDITION, the actress claims Nuala used her name to start a handbag line and to open a Mischa Barton fashion boutique in London, and kept all that moolah for herself.
And FINALLY, Mischa is claiming her mom changed up the paperwork to give herself co-ownership of Mischa’s the eight bedroom, 11 bath Beverly Hills mansion, taking out loans against the property and kicking Mischa out of her own house!
Apparently neither Barton parent have had a job outside of their daughter’s brand in years, and I can see why. Sounds like they are totally taking advantage of Mischa’s fame. This would be crazy even if it was just a manager, but a MOM and manager? Man, so sad.
