Yikes! This is some family drama that we would NOT want to be a part of!
Mischa Barton is suing her own mother/manager for reportedly taking a hefty sum from the actress’ salary on a recently filmed movie AND for kicking her out of her own home in Beverly Hills!
According to the filed lawsuit against 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 flick, The Hoarder — the actress found out what she was actually making from the production company on the set.
Mischa wrote in the lawsuit Nuala took the difference and a 10% management fee, but no specific numbers were revealed in the legal docs.
Not only did her madre take moolah from her paycheck, Mish claims Nuala used her name to start a handbag line and to open a Mischa Barton fashion boutique across the pond in London — and kept all the profits for herself!
Now onto the next and last part of the lawsuit — this one’s a doozy! As if the other stuff mentioned before this wasn’t!
Regarding Mischa’s home in BH, the actress is saying her mommy changed up the paperwork to give herself co-ownership of the eight bedroom, 11 bath mansion! The lawsuit is also alleging that Nuala took out loans against the property and kicked Mischa out of her own house!
After accusing her mother of all of those crimes against her, Mischa apparently also said her parents:
“sit back expecting their daughter’s hard work and dedication to her craft to support their lifestyle.”
Apparently neither her mom or dad have had a job outside of their daughter’s brand in years!
This whole situation just sounds like a mess. Hopefully these two can settle things easily, but even after all of this over, it doesn’t seem like they’ll be able to repair their relationship.
