Actress Mischa Barton is reportedly suing her mother Nuala Barton.
According to E! News the 29-year-old star is bringing legal action against her mum, who also acted as her manager, for breach of oral contract, fraudulent misrepresentation and other causes of action.
In the lawsuit Mischa also claims that Nuala lied about the amount of money she was to be paid for a film in 2013 and has kicked her out of her Beverley Hills home.
The documents state: “This action arises from the tragic tale of a greedy stage mother posing a talent manager who, instead of acting in best interest of her daughter/client, schemed to defraud her unsuspecting victim.”
Mischa, who allegedly filed the papers in Los Angeles on Tuesday, is seeking “recovery of what her own mother stole from her” and wants to continue with her career without her “meddling”.
