“My back downstairs neighbor’s hysterically crying in the backyard and saying she’s going to kill herself. She’s screaming. She keeps saying, ‘I just want to die.'” The caller also told the dispatcher that authorities are sent to Barton’s residence “every few months.”
Clips from 911 calls regarding Mischa Barton’s meltdown last month have been obtained by TMZ. The two calls reveal that Barton was causing a neighbourhood disturbance that had people seriously concerned about her behaviour. Barton was said to be screaming about killing herself at the time of the incident.
In a statement to People last month right before the footage was released, the actress said she had been drugged with GHB while celebrating her birthday with friends.
“I voluntarily went to get professional help, and I was informed by their staff that I had been given GHB,” Barton said at the time. “After an overnight stay, I am home and doing well. I would like to extend a big thanks of gratitude to the professionals at Cedars-Sinai for their great care and professionalism. This is a lesson to all young women out there, be aware of your surroundings.”
According to New York Daily News, Barton was seen in West Hollywood for the first time since her hospitalization.
