Mischa Barton & Boyfriend Split
From Star...

The O.C.'s Mischa Barton, 19, has split from boyfriend Brandon Davis, 22, an oil heir whom she began dating in April 2004, Star has exclusively learned. The couple parted ways before British-born Mischa headed to Rome in April to begin filming the romantic drama Decameron, an adaptation of a 14th century Italian classic, opposite Star Wars stud Hayden Christensen, 24.

A source tells Star, "They broke up after things began winding down and they started reevaluating their relationship. But it was Mischa who broke it off, for a few reasons: Brandon doesn't have any real money of his own; it's all his family's. She wasn't happy that Brandon didn't have any of his own money, and that he'd have to go to his mother Nancy all the time for money. She thought it was ridiculous that a man would have to go to his mom each month for money."

Also, in the weeks leading up to Mischa's departure for Italy, the source tells Star Brandon began expressing jealousy that she would be shooting a romantic film alongside Canadian-born Christensen -- a concern that Mischa deemed silly.

Mischa's rep, though, tells Star, "Mischa is opting not to comment on her personal life as she's currently on-location in Europe filming a movie during her summer hiatus from The O.C."

Another nail in the relationship coffin was Brandon's lack of high-wattage fame, which Mischa didn't think boded well for her career. Adds the source, "Mischa realized that the only reason he gets any attention is because he was with her. She's better off with another actor, who could do things for her career." Although Brandon is an aspiring actor, it's typically been his association with bolder-faced names that garnered him attention, like his relationships with family friends Paris and Nicky Hilton, who he's since alienated. Brandon grew up with the perennial party girls, who were once related to the Davises by marriage, since the heiress' aunt on their mother Kathy's side was married to Nancy Davis' brother. Brandon's mother Nancy is also Simple Life star Nicole Richie's godmother.

While Brandon alienated himself from the Hilton sisters, he may have been responsible for alienating Mischa -- who previously dated co-star Benjamin McKenzie -- from her co-stars on The O.C., and widening the on-set rift. A source told Star late last year, "Mischa was really tight with the rest of the cast when the show first started, but after she and Ben split up, she really changed her life. Ben and Rachel [Bilson] and Adam [Brody] still go out together -- but not with Mischa. She spends all her time with Brandon."

During their one-year romance, Mischa typically accompanied Brandon to events that were more socialite than celeb. For example, the couple's first major public outing together was in May 2004, at Nancy Davis' 11th Annual Race to Erase MS fundraiser at L.A.'s Century Plaza Hotel. The pair held hands on the catwalk with event co-chair Tommy Hilfiger at the end of the fashion show. At the event, Nancy Davis gushed, "Mischa is my son's girlfriend, and she's very, very sweet." Brandon chimed in about their relationship, adding, "It's been amazing."

God, that article makes Mischa sound so self-centered and horrible - like she views romance as a way to climb the Hollywood ladder. I'm not saying it's true, but those reasons for the breakup are terrible.

I don't really believe that, but it would suck if it's true - I think they're rather adorable together.

Considering the fact that he's a billionaire heir, I always pictured Mischa as truly liking him, the money no focal point in their relationship. I'm not even a fan of Mischa, but something just strikes me as them genuinely liking each other.

Everytime I read something about her, it makes me like her less - I know that some writers might try to portray her in a bad light, but she seems to accross as unimpressive so persistently

I don't usually give Mischa credit but maybe, if the rumors of her breaking up with him because of the money are true, she meant that technically, he has no independence. I mean he doesn't really do anything does he-he's completely reliant on the women in his life. Maybe she wanted someone who could fend for themselves.

It was a rumour...I really doubt he dated her, though.

Yet another article that doesn't make Mischa look like the nicest person.

She probably thought she was too "beautiful" and got sick of him only thinking of her as just a pretty face.

i don't think she ever went out with ben mckenzie, i think that was a rumor to get the show some publicity in the beginning.
