The OC Star Mischa Barton Has Been Hospitalised
The OC star Mischa Barton has had a mental health scare.
According to TMZ, the actress has been taken to hospital for a mental evaluation.
It comes after her neighbours found the 31-year-old on top of her backyard fence screaming that her mother was a witch.
She was also heard talking about the ‘world shattering’, and the neighbour also heard her say something about Ziggy Stardust.
Police and firefighters were called to the scene after being alerted about a ‘jumper of possible overdose’.
The site reported that Barton was voluntarily transported to a hospital.
It is not the first time a mental health issue has seen Mischa taken to a hospital.
In 2009, after seeking medical help for a tooth infection, Barton was sectioned for two weeks under Californian Law ‘5150’ which meant she was confined against her will to ensure she does not hurt herself.
She said at the time 'If they feel you are depressed or a danger to yourself they can hold you on a 5150. I am terrified of needles, and they wanted to pump me full of drugs, and I said, "No, absolutely not. I don't want to be here," and got into a fight with the nurses, and that led to my 5150.
