In 2009 Mischa Barton hired a private nursing company for reasons unknown and during that time she racked up nearly $90,000 in medical care, money she is now being forced to repay.
Doctor’s Choice Nursing sued the former O.C. actress when she wouldn’t pony up the $89,930.57 bill she owed to the company, asking a judge for the full amount plus interest, an amount that was granted to the sum of $95,000.
After failing to appear in front of the court DCN won a default judgment against Mischa, with her reps stating:
“This is the first we’ve heard of it.”
That’s quite a large bill to be stuck with paying simply because you couldn’t bother showing up in court to argue your half of the story.
