Mischa Barton Sues Her Mother Over Earnings

April 9, 2015


The O.C. alum has sued her mother Nuala Barton for stealing all of her earnings. Mischa, who has been acting since she was 8 years old, says her “greedy stage mother” kicked her out of her own Beverly Hills home, in addition to using her name to create a handbag line and opening a store in London, without including her daughter in any of the profits.

Mischa’s lawyer Alex Weingarten told Us Weekly in a statement that, “This action arises from the tragic tale of a greedy stage mother posing as a talent manager who, instead of acting in the best interest of her daughter/client, schemed to defraud her unsuspecting victim.”

Weingarten went on to add, “From the outset, Nuala positioned herself to siphon her daughter’s hard-earned money by purportedly acting as her talent manager – a role for which Nuala had absolutely no experience or training.”

The documents pertaining to the lawsuit reveal that neither Mischa’s mother or father have held jobs in over 10 years.
