Times have been tough for Mischa Barton!
The former star of The O.C. has gone through some personal struggles in the last few years, and now she's facing a financial battle with Volkswagen.

The German car company says she leased a car from them and then stopped making payments on it, so they've filed a lawsuit against her with damages list at more than $25,000!
VW wants both the car back, and the money they're owed — which is going to set Mischa back a pretty penny!!!
She's done this before with Audi, and had plenty of other money problems, too.
Let's just hope she gets right this time and figures out it's better to buy than lease, and it's always better to get something you can afford than, ya know, not making payments.
