Mischa Barton Voluntarily Hospitalized for Mental Evaluation

Mischa Barton has reportedly been hospitalized for a mental evaluation after her friends and neighbors were concerned by her behavior.

The 31-year-old The OC actress and former Dancing With the Stars contestant was spotted hanging over the backyard fence of her home on Thursday morning (January 26) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Mischa was reportedly “rambling about her mom being a witch, the world shattering, and Ziggy Stardust.” Photos from the incident have been published on TMZ.

When sheriff’s deputies and firefighters arrived on the scene, Mischa was voluntarily transported to a hospital for mental evaluation.

Mischa was previously placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold back in 2009.

    I love seedy gossip as much as the next degenerate… But its tacky of TMZ to post pictures of her when she is in mental distres.

  • Delores Pauldo

    Really people why you all being so nasty toward her. While not talk about Rachel bilson she haven’t worked in two years and Jared never post anything about her unless its about Hayden doing a movie. So why not Jared post how she treatment are her child that she keeping quiet about. Rachel Bilson didn’t make nothing out are herself either. Running behind Hayden all the times. And Jared won’t post nothing about her. Rachel bilson is mental I’ll not working. Hiding behind that child she had. Like anybody care about that. Hope mischa get the help she needs. Stop being so hateful. And Jared you know better. Don’t see you posting any pics or nothing about her

    I know. I don’t doubt that she is in need of help and I hope she gets it, but those are legit facts. There are much crazier things she could have been saying while hanging over that fence. Also, the world is indeed shattering in many ways.

  • LittlePaperStars

    We all like a bit of gossip but for TMZ to post pictures of someone who is suffering with mental health problems, and seemingly in the middle of some kind of episode is really low.

  • LittlePaperStars

    Stop being so hateful..says the person writing a heap of crap about Rachel Bilson in the same comment.

  • Delores Pauldo

    Rachel bilson need evaluation for herself for who did a reply to my comments its seems her life is fine without a job these days. You haters need to stop bringing mischa down. I am sure Rachel has problems too. Jared never see fault in her. Even when her show got cancelled. And the wrong doing about getting pregnant on purpose. So Jared should research something on Rachel too. You can’t play favorite. Just because she won’t come out and say anything about her life after having her child. All people have problems why Rachel can’t come out and say she has some? Things not going that well since she don’t want a job to support herself and her child. That just plain lazy. But you people can pick on mischa. You all should ashamed for picking mischa. Rachel didn’t hit the jack pot

  • nicky
