Mischa Barton says she was drugged with the so-called “date rape drug” GHB, leading to her hospitalization. See statement below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Barton was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation on Thursday after exhibiting erratic behavior. Though it was concerned friends and neighbors who sought emergency intervention, the actress agreed to go to the hospital voluntarily. She was released on Friday, and has now issued a statement asserting she was drugged while celebrating her birthday the night before the hospitalization.

Barton tells People:

“On the evening of the 25th, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. While having drinks, I realized that something was not right as my behavior was becoming erratic and continued to intensify over the next several hours.

I voluntarily went to get professional help, and I was informed by their staff that I had been given GHB. 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.”

Barton did not indicate if she knows who may have slipped her the drug. “The O.C.” star, who competed on “Dancing with the Stars” last year, was previously hospitalized on an involuntary psychiatric hold in 2009. Discussing the ordeal in 2013, she admitted to having a “full-on breakdown.”

As Gossip Cop also reported, around the time the news of the actress’ new hospitalization broke, a tweet was sent on her Twitter account thanking fans for birthday wishes, but it was deleted shortly after. Barton turned 31 on Wednesday. Reps have not responded to requests for comment.
