Mischa, your rent is due

Landlord sues Mischa Barton for $21,000

Mischa Barton is really getting screwed. She rented an apartment in New York last September for $7,000. Turns out that wasn’t just a one time payment — her landlord wants it every month! What a jerk! From the Huffington Post:

Mischa Barton’s landlord says the actress is refusing to pay rent on her $7,000-a-month apartment in New York City.

Landlord M.R.A. Realties Inc. says in a lawsuit that Barton rebuffed efforts to collect the last three months’ worth of rent on her flat in the trendy Tribeca neighborhood. Barton’s representatives had no immediate response. The landlord wants Barton to pay the rent and legal fees.

The 23-year-old Barton also lives in Los Angeles. The lawsuit filed Thursday says her one-year lease on the Manhattan apartment began in September.

It sounds like life may soon be imitating art for Mischa. This week she played a hooker on Law & Order: SVU and next week she may be giving BJs for rent money. Now, I’m not sure how much money a broke Hollywood starlet with zero future employment opportunities would charge for such services . . . but I hear Lindsay is now accepting food stamps.
