Mischa Barton: Inside the Psych Ward
Hopefully getting the help that she needs, Mischa Barton was photographed peering out a window in the Psych Ward at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Beverly Hills on Saturday.
As previously reported, the former “OC” star was placed on a 72-hour hold for psychiatric evaluation for an apparent suicide attempt last Wednesday.
According to insiders, Miss Barton’s friends called cops after worrying that she would kill herself following a drug related binge.
“She’s in very bad shape,” a source told the New York Post. “She’s running out of money and can’t find love, so now she is looking for a good time to escape her misery. She is on a downward spiral. She is a mess. She is a suicidal, uninsurable mess.”
