Mischa Barton Reportedly Placed Under Involuntary Psychiatric Hold

Mischa Reportedly Placed Under Involuntary Psychiatric Hold

Mischa Barton was removed from her LA home by police officers last night after suffering from an undisclosed medical condition. After her rep commented that the escort was necessary only for safety purposes, it appears as though her state is worse than originally thought. She's allegedly been placed under a 5150 hold, which will allow Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to hold her for up to 72 hours. It's the same situation Britney faced during her troubles in 2008. Hopefully Mischa is already on the road to getting whatever help she needs.

It's pretty bad that this girl is in put on a psych hold and even TMZ doesn't report about it...they write about everything!

I feel bad for her. Yes, she had money, fame, drugs, and alcohol at such a young age and that makes it hard to necessarily sympathize. However, it sucks seeing anyone go through something like this, especially when it is splashed on the cover of magazines and blogs.

You don't have to be spoiled or have a substance abuse problem to be put on 51/50. I was put on 51/50 a year ago and I was holding a steady job, I don't take drugs I'm not an alcoholic. Sometimes people just have problems. I feel for her.

as much as i do not like Paris Hilton, she is a business woman and at least she sort of works and is sort of accountable. key words: SORT OF. i really think Lisa hit the nail on the head w/ the 1st post....these girls have too much $$, too much idle time, and no REAL work. Mischa's downward spiral started when she quit the OC....

The sad thing is that she has a new show this season. Sure the show looks horrible, but at least it was something.

Left the OC because her ego was too big, got dissed in the gossip rags because her thighs were too big, realized what a big mistake she made and now she's koo-koo crazy.

This seems to be a common occurrence among former child/teen stars. I agree, it has something to do with too much money, too much freedom, and no accountability.

I am as snarky as the next person, but cut her some slack. Obviously she has an addiction problem and she is paying for her actions. Her life can't be that easy because her little sister had the same problem. If you're on 51/50 something is truly wrong and kicking someone when they're down isn't the greatest thing to do. She is just a young woman after all and I don't know who she's hurt besides herself.

Thanks xosoflaxo. But I should say that if, by chance, she really does have a substance abuse problem, then I take back most of what I think. Addiction is a terrible, terrible demon to battle, regardless of if a person is famous or not.

I do feel a bit sorry for her, but it's her own fault. Asche pretty much summed it up.

Too much drugs and too much alcohol. I feel sorry for her.

@ilanac13: That's just the thing. She was NEVER at the top of her career. Her ego was and is too big. She left the O.C. on the cusp of stardom b/c she thought she could find better. Guess what? She has little talent and found nothing better. She goes on her blog to 'set the rumor' straight on stories that no one has ever heard of. This girl is batshit crazy and is probably suffering from nothing worse than a case of bag narcissism. Sorry for sounding so unsympathetic, but Mischa Barton has always represented the talentless, spoiled and entitled celebutards that Hollywood keeps churning out...even more so than Paris Hilton!
