This whole thing must've been a very difficult choice for Mischa Barton.

It came to light on Wednesday that the O.C. actress was suing her mother, Nuala Barton, for allegedly taking her money and kicking Mischa out of her own home in Beverly Hills, California.

What a sad situation.

A source close to the 29-year-old is saying Mischa is totally heartbroken over this move, but her mom forced her hand. They said:

"She is heartbroken by this, and she didn't want to do it. She hates the attention, but she didn't have a choice."

The insider then went on to reveal their mother-daughter relationship has been strained for years.

They recalled the similar incident happening a couple years ago, and it was only until now Mischa decided to take matters into her own hands.

The source said:

"When she said to her mom, 'I'm going to have to sue you for the rights to what I own,' her mom said, 'Fine, get out of the house. You will never sue us.' This was two years ago. And [Mischa] got the point where she said, 'I don't care.'

Her relationship with her mother has been strained for years and Mischa has reached a point in her life where she is able to finally to take full control of her career and the financial freedom she deserves."

That's so sad.

As hard as it may be, it sounds like this tough legal lovin' is needed.
