Mischa Barton's landlord says the actress is refusing to pay rent on her $7,000-a-month apartment in New York City. Landlord M.R.A. Realties Inc. says in a lawsuit that Barton rebuffed efforts to collect the last three months' worth of rent on her flat in the trendy Tribeca neighborhood.
Barton's representatives had no immediate response. The landlord wants Barton to pay the rent and legal fees.
The 23-year-old Barton also lives in Los Angeles. The lawsuit filed Thursday says her one-year lease on the Manhattan apartment began in September.
At the time, she was in "The Beautiful Life," a CW series about the New York modeling world. The show was canceled in September.
